Have you been thinking about straightening your teeth but don’t want to worry about a mouthful of braces? Dr. Thurman is a Premier Preferred provider of Invisalign, and a complimentary consultation can determine if this treatment option is right for you.
What is it?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one knows you’re wearing except you. These appliances have been proven to be as effective as braces and allow you to speak, eat and smile normally while straightening your teeth.
Invisalign clear aligners are removable and invisible, so you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. Brushing and flossing are no problem, and they are comfortable to wear. No metal or wires means that you will spend less time in at the office getting adjustments, not to mention the fact that you can avoid discomfort during treatment. Invisalign 3D imaging also allows you to see a virtual treatment plan so you can envision your final result.
How does it work?
You will wear each set of aligners for about two 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 that Dr. Thurman has prescribed. You’ll visit our practice about once every eight weeks to ensure that your treatment is moving forward. Depending on your case, total treatment time will last anywhere from 6-18 months.
