Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of nearly undetectable custom aligners. Invisalign has been proven effective in both clinical research and in our practice Denver Dentistry. Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart, or have shifted since wearing braces, Invisalign will give you a new reason to smile. Denver’s certified Invisalign dentist, Dr. Grabiak DMD, FAGD will work with you to achieve the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign employs a series of custom-made, clear aligners that incrementally straighten your teeth according to a treatment plan designed by Dr. Grabiak. During your initial consultation, he will analyze your teeth and take impressions and photographs that are sent to the Invisalign factory. These are used to create a three-dimensional projection of desired tooth alignment. Once this is reviewed and approved by Dr. Grabiak, the plastic aligners are manufactured and shipped to our office.
When you are given the aligners, we’ll instruct you on how to wear and care for them properly. Dr. Grabiak will monitor your progress to ensure successful alignment. Each aligner must be worn for several weeks as it gradually moves your teeth into the proper position. Treatment times vary and depend greatly on the condition of your teeth. At each visit, you’ll receive a new aligner to wear for the next phase of treatment.
