Summit Dental Care's experienced team of oral experts administers Invisalign treatments to straighten crooked chompers with the aid of 3-D computer imaging. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye, which is too busy looking for its underwear. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of the mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. View some Invisalign FAQs here. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
