  • Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
  • The aligners are made through a combination of Dr. Perry’s expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.
  • You wear each set of aligners for about 2 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 Dr. Perry has prescribed.
  • You’ll visit Dr. Perry about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
  • Total treatment time averages 9 – 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

Working with children at an early age (5—10), using expanders and a variety of other effective growth appliances have enabled us to avoid unnecessary extractions of healthy permanent teeth, and most importantly, produce fuller, broader more attractive smiles for our children. These smiles will be attractive for a lifetime. By the way, it’s not too late for moms and dads to make their smiles more youthful. As NPR noted, lower front teeth become more noticeable with age. Invisalign helps adults achieve the straight teeth they’ve always wanted, without the need for braces. Now if only there was something as simple for the rest of our bodies.
