Invisalign

Reveal your inner smile without braces!

Consider Invisalign® to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. Invisalign is clear, removable and comfortable. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Dat Phung can determine if Invisalign® is right for you.

What is it?

Invisalign® uses a series of nearly invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign® is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective for mild to moderate orthodontic problems.

Why would I want it?

Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They aligners are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign® also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

The big catch is not everyone is suitable for Invisalign® treatment – depending on what you want to have done to your teeth and how difficult it will be to achieve that result. At Valley Creek Dental, Dr. Dat Phung will discuss this more with you at your consultation appointment

How does it work?

You wear each set of aligners for about 2 to 3 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. Dat Phung has designed. You’ll visit Dr. Dat Phung 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.
