Invisalign Clear Braces

Clear Braces at Chestnut Dental with Invisalign

Invisalign is an orthodontic technology that allows us to move teeth and correct a bite using clear plastic trays instead of metal braces. The technology was first introduced in 1999, at Chestnut Dental we have been providing Invisalign treatment since 2001. Our long history combined with high level of experience has made us a Diamond Top 1% Provider, a distinction earned by a small fraction of orthodontists nationwide.  

 We have successfully treated patients with a range of orthodontic problems, from minor crowding to complex bite corrections or replacement of missing teeth. Recently, we partnered with the oral surgeons at Children’s Hospital to develop a protocol for Invisalign instead of braces for use with orthognathic jaw surgery, one of the most complicated dental procedures. 

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign® is an orthodontic appliance system used to inconspicuously treat crooked and crowded teeth in adults and teens. This modern take on braces features a system of clear aligner trays that are worn at all times with the exception of during meals and when brushing or flossing. The trays are custom fitted to the teeth, making them virtually unnoticeable when laughing, talking, and eating with other people.

Patients receive a sequence of trays, each of which is slightly different than the one before. The aligners provide a slight resistance to the teeth, forcing them to move into alignment over time. With Invisalign®, adults and teens can achieve the smiles they’ve always wanted without feeling self-conscious about the mode of treatment.

Questions About Invisalign

Am I a candidate for Invisalign®?

If you have crooked or crowded teeth that are embarrassing to you or otherwise preventing you from achieving optimal oral health, Invisalign® could be the solution for you. Visit your Invisalign® dentist for a complete consultation to find out if you could benefit from clear orthodontics.

What should I expect during my Invisalign® treatment?

You will wear your aligners nearly all of the time, with the exception of about two hours per day. Invisalign® treatments are different for everyone, but most patients can achieve their ideal smiles within one to two years. During that time, you can expect to make occasional dental visits to monitor your progress.

Will I need any post-treatment care?

Following your treatment, you will no longer need to wear Invisalign® trays. However, you will need to wear a retainer each day to help protect your new smile. It is also important to continue visiting your dentist for routine check-ups and twice-yearly cleaning.
