Invisalign® in Paoli, PA
Malocclusion or misaligned teeth can predispose you to numerous challenges, including teeth grinding, TMJ pain, cavities, and self-consciousness. Unfortunately, many adults with bad bites shy away from seeking orthodontic treatment because they aren’t ready to deal with metal braces. While highly effective in straightening crooked teeth, metal braces are considered aesthetically unappealing by most adults.
Invisalign® in Paoli, PA empowers you to achieve your dream smile without the need for metal braces. Invisalign is an innovative, patient-friendly orthodontic treatment that utilizes clear, custom aligners to straighten crooked teeth.

The Invisalign Treatment Journey
Our dentists in Paoli, PA start by evaluating your bite to assess if you’re a good fit for Invisalign treatment. Invisalign is effective in treating overbite, gap teeth, open bite, crowding, underbite, and crossbite.
Please note that Invisalign works best for mild to moderate malocclusion cases. If your bite is severely crooked, traditional alternatives such as metal braces may be preferred.
After your assessment, the dentist obtains your digital dental impressions and shares these with the Invisalign lab. Next, the dentist collaborates with the Invisalign lab team to create a series of custom aligners. Once the aligners are ready, your dentist calls you back and shows you how to use the aligners.
For Invisalign treatment to work expected, you must wear your aligners for at least 22 hours every day. You can easily pop out your aligners when you need to brush your teeth or eat.
Invisalign treatment may last anywhere between 12 and 18 months, depending on the crookedness of your bite.
