Ask Us Anything!

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment designed to correct any issues with the tooth alignment. It is made of clear medical grade plastic and is removable instead of placed on your teeth with adhesive.

Who Should Use Invisalign?

Invisalign is for those who wish to take a more flexible and discrete approach to oral care. Now, Invisalign doesn’t always work for every single orthodontic case, so be sure to ask Dr. Murdoch and see if Invisalign, or Invisalign Teen, is a good option for you or your kiddo!

What Is Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign Teen is a clear treatment option  systems in place to ensure your teen is wearing them for the prescribed amount of time each day. Each retainer has a blue symbol that fades over time if used correctly.

What Are The Benefits Of Invisalign Over Traditional Braces?

No food restrictions, easy cleaning and a very discreet look are some of the most popular benefits. There is also less discomfort and fewer checkups required.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Once we take an iTero 3D scan of your teeth, Dr. Murdoch designs your custom Invisalign™ removable clear aligner treatment plan, step by step. A series of aligners are made from this design to correct any detected issues.

Invisalign clear aligners are removable and must be worn 20-22 hours each day for the movements to be achieved. Gentle forces are programmed into each aligner set in your series. By progressing through each of these clear aligners on a weekly changeover schedule, you will see your teeth transform from crooked to straight!

How Long Does Invisalign Take To Finish?

Treatment time varies largely depending on the complexity of your case. For most patients, the treatment can take up to 1-3 years. At Ocean’s Edge Orthodontics, we also offer the option to select a limited level of care for minor adjustments only. This limited level treatment plan can range from 6-12 months.

We see our Invisalign treatment plan as a partnership. Aligners must be worn for the recommended hours each day (20-22 hours) treatment time for efficient treatment time.

Are There Any Restrictions With Invisalign?

There are no food restrictions, though it is important to clean your clear aligners after each meal.

Healthy Smile; Healthy Life!

Our passion is positioning you for a lifetime of oral health. Even more, we believe you’ll feel better about your appearance, will grow in self-confidence, and will smile more.

And at Ocean’s Edge Orthodontics, we believe that your smile is our legacy.
