Invisalign in Portland

Invisible, Removable Straightening For Your Teeth!

Braces aren’t just for children or teens!  Many adults seek orthodontic treatment to improve their smiles, boost their self-esteem, and correct their bites. With no wires or brackets, Invisalign has been an ideal choice for many of our patients looking for teeth straightening in Portland.

Invisalign is a clear aligner system used as an alternative to traditional braces. A series of clear, custom-made, aligners gradually move teeth a little bit at a time, eventually correcting the teeth and creating ideal alignment. Even better, the clear aligners are removable which means brushing, flossing, and eating your favorite foods remains simple and comfortable!

The Invisalign Process

Our team will evaluate your teeth and talk about any problems or goals you have for your smile. Detailed information will be gathered including:

  • Digital impressions
  • Photographs
  • Radiographs

We use this information to create a 3-D model of your teeth and a prescription for custom-made aligners. The Mint Dental Works team then maps out a complete treatment plan showing the gradual realignment that will move your teeth from their current position to where we want them.

The “treatment set-up,” a computerized representation of your teeth before and after treatment, is available for viewing after treatment planning. Once your digital plan is finalized, a series of custom aligners are made using a state-of-the-art printing process. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.

Portland Invisalign Treatment: How It Works

As your teeth get progressively straighter, you’ll move from one set of aligners to the next. Each set of aligners is worn full-time, or 22 hours a day, for approximately two weeks. To ensure the best results, you should only remove your aligners while eating or brushing your teeth.

Designed with aesthetics in mind, these aligners are barely noticeable and won’t impact your daily routine.

After wearing each aligner set, results will be noticeable as your teeth begin slowly adjusting and aligning to your desired smile. Periodic check-ups with our SE Portland Dentist office are required to evaluate your progress and give you the next set of aligners. This sequence will continue until you have achieved your new, improved smile. 🙂
