Invisalign

There are a number of reasons as to why a patient might choose Invisalign over traditional metal braces or other forms of orthodontic treatment. If you are longing for a straight smile but are reluctant due to the appearance of traditional metal braces or restrictions on the food you can eat, we might recommend the Invisalign system.

Invisalign allows you to undergo orthodontic treatment without others knowing about it – the aligners are completely discreet and at the same time, effective.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign uses state-of-the-art technology to straighten teeth. The clear aligners that you will receive from Dr. Lauren Cai are customized specifically for you. These aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink all of the foods that you normally would, and even brush and floss your teeth effectively.

The Invisalign system follows a simple, four-step procedure.

  1. You will visit your Longview or Vancouver orthodontics office and Dr. Lauren Cai will consult with you, determining if you are a good candidate for Invisalign.
  2. If you are indeed a good fit for Invisalign, Dr. Cai will have finely calibrated aligners customized for you by Invisalign.
  3. You should wear these aligners for a minimum of 22 hours per day. You will have a new set of aligners about every two weeks, so be sure to replace your aligners as Dr. Lauren Cai suggests. You will start to notice that as you progress through different, strategic sets of aligners, your teeth will begin moving into their desired positions.
  4. Just like that, your teeth will finally be in their desired positions and your treatment will be complete! You will be amazed at what Invisalign can do.
