The Leader in Clear, Removable Aligners
The Invisalign® translucent alignment trays are digitally planned to precisely move your teeth into the proper alignment without any wires or brackets.
Dr. Clauss has treated teens and adults with Invisalign for more than a decade. When you want a straighter smile, but know that conventional metal or ceramic braces aren’t for you, Invisalign is an excellent option to consider.
What Do the Invisalign Trays Look Like?
Imagine a clear bleaching tray or orthodontic retainer. Invisalign aligner trays look like a translucent, thin representation of your unique smile.
When placed over your teeth, you don’t even see the aligners in the mirror.
Made with Smart Track® technology, Invisalign is a BPA-free plastic aligner that snuggly fits around your unique smile.
The clear braces snap right over your teeth in a way that’s hardly noticeable to other people.
In fact, most people around Watertown and Middlebury will never know you’re wearing Invisalign unless you tell them that you are.
How It Works
Your case starts by digitally scanning your mouth using the iTero Scanner at Clauss Orthodontics. As we plan how to move your teeth, your aligners are created to facilitate that movement.
Once your scan's complete, Dr. Clauss maps out your treatment plan. This includes the exact movements of your teeth and how long he expects your treatment to last.
He’ll view these images with you, and you’ll be able to see how your teeth will move. You’ll even get the chance to preview your new smile.
About every two weeks, you change your aligner out and feel a little pressure. It’s this sensation that triggers the teeth to adjust and move toward the preferred location.
Invisalign aligners are only meant to be removed during meals and for oral hygiene purposes. For best results, you should plan to wear your trays for a minimum of 22 hours per day.
Flexibility for Your Lifestyle
Invisalign trays are removable, so you can still enjoy all of your favorite meals without worrying about breaking an orthodontic appliance and helps you to avoid any oral hygiene concerns.
Invisalign treatment lets you enjoy:
- Simplified home care
- No dietary restrictions
- Fewer and shorter appointments
- Discreet treatment
