Dr. Biggs and Dr. Hansen are Certified Invisalign® and 3M Clarity Aligner Providers
Consider Invisalign or 3M Clarity Aligners to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted without braces. A consultation with our doctors can determine if aligner treatment is right for you.
What are aligners?
Aligner treatment uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners. They are made with 3-D computer imaging technology, and have been proven effective for many orthodontic problems.
What are some advantages?
Not only are the aligners not visible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are no problem. They 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. Aligners also allow 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.
How do aligners work?
You wear each set of aligners for 1 week, 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 our doctors have prescribed. You’ll visit our office about once every 6 to 8 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9 to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from patient to patient.
