Invisalign

More adults are finally getting that beautiful smile they've always wanted, without anyone even knowing they are going through treatment. These virtually invisible aligners are custom made to your exact treatment needs, as directed by the Orthodontists at Ilam Orthodontics. Each set of trays are worn for 2 weeks and are manufactured to gradually shift your teeth according to the individual treatment goals.
 
Drs Crooks and Fowler, your Invisalign Certified Providers, are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of malocclusions and in creating stunning smiles. As a result of their experience and education with Invisalign, they can inform you of your suitability for Invisalign and other additional orthodontic treatment techniques that may be appropriate for you.
 
Orthodontists Marguerite Crooks and Peter Fowler have been Certified Invisalign® Providers since 2005. 

An obligation free consultation with Ilam Orthodontics can determine if Invisalign is right for you. Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted without braces.
 

What is it?

Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven clinically effective at treating most malocclusions. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.
 

Why would I want it?

Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want with the aligners removed as well as clean your teeth with brushing and flossing before reinserting the aligners. They are comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment and with no metal and wires, usually means you spend less time in your doctor's office getting adjustments. Invisalign allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
 

How does it work?

You wear each set of aligners for 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position the orthodontists have prescribed. You will visit Ilam Orthodontics usually once every 8 to 12 weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time varies and the average number of aligners worn during treatment will vary from patient to patient.
