Straighter Teeth – No Braces
The brand name Invisalign is now as common as that of Kleenex. Dr. Katie Shao is a certified provider of Invisalign clear aligners which are the most advanced clear aligner in the world. It allows dentists to move and straighten teeth without those metal brackets that many people want to avoid.
In Invisalign, the patient has small “buttons” placed on their teeth with filling material that help to click the clear aligners into the right place. The buttons aid in the desired movement and stay in for the duration of the treatment. The patient switches out their own trays every 1-2 weeks and comes in to the office for movement checks at set time periods to make sure all is going well. Not everyone is a good candidate for Invisalign, but you may be!
