Invisalign Clear Aligners
Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.
If you are interested in Invisalign and would like to know if you are a candidate for this modality of treatment, you should schedule a complimentary exam at one of our offices. We will evaluate your teeth and concerns and let you know if it is an option for you.
To ensure the best possible results, only an orthodontist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can best diagnose and treat using Invisalign. It is not intended for children and is not appropriate for every adult. Only an orthodontist can determine if this treatment is an effective option for you. For more information on this treatment, contact us for a complimentary evaluation.
Invisalign aligner trays are discrete and nearly indestructible.
INVISALIGN AT MINERA ORTHODONTICS
Minera Orthodontics is approaching 1000 Invisalign cases that have been completed or is currently treatment and has been selected by Invisalign and a “Preferred Premier Provider”! The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if this system is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you’ll be smiling like you never have before!
We have found that patients who research Invisalign on the internet or in talking with friends often are confused with what they learn; It seems that about 1/2 of the patients who have had it love it, while the other 1/2 may state it didn’t really work. This is probably because it is not for every patient or every bite problem but some dentists prescribe it for conditions the trays cannot correct. In our office, the doctors make it a point to let you know if you are a candidate for it or not. Doctor Minera is very experienced in the intricacies of the Invisalign process having treated and finished hundreds of patients—Many in less than one year’s time. Patient happiness and “success” in this treatment modality involves clinical acumen, experience and proper patient selection. Due to her experience, Doctor Minera has been given the distinction of being a “Preferred Invisalign Premier Provider”
