At Spilsbury Orthodontics, we provide our patients with the option of straightening their teeth with the convenience and invisibility of Invisalign. Many patients are drawn to this form of treatment because it allows them to get a straighter smile while still maintaining their same appearance. Rather than brackets attached to teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to get the same results.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign treatment works a little differently than other treatment plans. You will wear a set of Invisalign aligners for 2 weeks and will only take them out when you are eating, drinking, brushing or flossing. They must be worn always to provide your teeth with the gentle pressure needed to move them into position. You will get new aligners every two weeks with subtle changes to begin moving your teeth. You will meet with us regularly to ensure that your treatment is progressing as it should and you are moving toward your oral goals.
Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign is a popular choice because it is such a discreet treatment option. The alignment trays are also incredibly comfortable for our patients. When you choose Invisalign, you don’t have abrasive brackets in your mouth; only clear, smooth aligners that won’t cause mouth abrasions throughout treatment. The adjustments to your aligners are more subtle as well so you don’t have as much pain as you experience when brackets are adjusted.

Spilsbury Orthodontics offers Invisalign® as a convenient and discreet teeth straightening option. Dr. Darrell Spilsbury will prepare computer-generated clear plastic braces to correct and align your teeth. Since the aligners are not permanently attached, they can be removed for eating, brushing your teeth, and any other activity where your teeth are best left unobstructed.

Invisalign® is a great choice for our patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your smile. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will be gradually, gently guided to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, Invisalign can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our orthodontist may recommend Invisalign to correct:
• Crowded teeth
• Crooked teeth
• Gapped and spaced teeth
• Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign aligners are also very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed in order to eat, brush, and floss. We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about Invisalign.
