Invisalign, an innovative orthodontic treatment option offered by your Brookfield, WI, dentists, Drs. Terence and Mary Eileen Geary, straightens your smile discreetly. Wire-free Invisalign is ideal for older teens and adults and can correct bite problems and spacing issues.

What is Invisalign?

The Invisalign system realigns your teeth using removable aligner trays that fit snugly over your teeth. Each aligner is custom-designed using a 3D image compiled from digital images, impressions, and photographs of your mouth taken by your Brookfield dentist. The trays exert constant, gentle pressure on your teeth, gradually improving their alignment.

Many people are concerned about changes to their appearance during orthodontic treatment. Thanks to Invisalign's clear aligner trays, most people won't be aware that you are improving your smile. The trays are designed to blend in with your smile and are almost invisible.

You'll receive a series of aligner trays at the beginning of your treatment. After two weeks of constant wear, you'll swap the trays for the next set in the series.

Am I a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign may be a good choice for you if:

  • You're unhappy with the appearance of your smile.
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth make chewing or speaking clearly difficult.
  • Your misaligned teeth are causing lacerations in your mouth, eroding your tooth enamel, triggering headaches, or causing jaw stiffness.
  • You have a spacing or mild-to-moderate bite problem, such as an overbite, underbite, open bite, or crossbite.
  • You're willing to wearing the Invisalign aligner trays 22 hours per day.

Are There Are Food Restrictions With Invisalign?

Since your aligner trays don't have any breakable parts, you won't have to avoid hard or sticky foods. In fact, you can continue to eat all of the foods you have been eating. You'll simply remove your trays before eating, and then rinse them at the end of the meal before placing them back in your mouth.

Although you can drink water without removing your trays, it's a good idea to take them out when drinking other beverages, as some drinks can stain the plastic.
