Dr. Sunnes is pleased to offer the Invisalign™ system that allows patients to straighten their teeth in as
few as 9 – 15 months! These invisible aligners correct all the usual problems of gaps, overcrowding, overbite,
underbite, and crossbite.
Invisalign™ uses three-dimensional imaging technology to prepare a complete treatment plan. It starts with the current position of your upper and lower teeth and progresses you to your new smile. Thermoplastic aligners that fit over your teeth are created to gently move your teeth into the desired position. Every two weeks you advance to the next set of aligners as they gradually reach the goal of your straight and uniform smile.
Every one to two months you come in for evaluation. Treatment time varies somewhat for each patient, with the average time being one year.
There are advantages of Invisalign™ over traditional braces. They are nearly invisible, which is
desirable for adults in their professional lives. Someone would have to look very closely at your smile to
notice them. This lets you feel comfortable about straightening your teeth in your adult years.
There are no irritations to your mouth while wearing them. They are all one piece with no metal wires or brackets that need adjustment. This also means there are fewer trips to the dentist to be checked.
A huge plus is the fact you can eat and drink whatever you like during your treatment time. These aligners can easily be removed while eating or brushing. They allow you to clean your teeth properly after each meal, so when your treatment time is over, you have a nice clean look to your new smile.
A straight smile is just a phone call away! Call for a no-cost/no-obligation consultation at (713) 981-6055 to determine if you’re a candidate for Invisalign™.
