Treatment that Fits Your Life
Invisalign® treatment with Dr. Wolf and the team at Stacy Wolf Orthodontics can give you beautiful, straight teeth without braces.
The Invisalign Process
Invisalign is much more comfortable than traditional metal bracket braces and can give you stunning results.
The Invisalign system is made of clear, lightweight plastic aligners that fit over your teeth and are designed to straighten your smile. They’re removable, making it easier to eat and drink. It’s also easier to brush and floss your teeth.
At your initial consultation at Stacy Wolf Orthodontics, we'll take digital scans and X-rays to create a 3D image of your mouth. We use these images to custom make your first set of aligners to begin the process of straightening your teeth.
You’ll probably wear Invisalign aligners for 9–15 months and typically use 18–30 sets during your treatment.
You wear the trays for about 22 hours a day but can remove them to brush your teeth and eat.
Based on your individual needs and the treatment plan Dr. Wolf has set, you’ll wear several sets of trays throughout your orthodontic treatment. In just a few short months, you’ll start to notice a change!
A Modern Approach
Invisalign’s modern approach to straightening teeth centers on the custom series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth.
As you wear the aligners, they’ll gently move your teeth into place based on the exact movements Dr. Wolf plans for you.
With Invisalign treatment at Stacy Wolf Orthodontics, there are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners about every two weeks until your treatment is complete.
This nearly-invisible option to straighten your teeth is truly changing the way people see orthodontic treatment.
You’ll get a great smile without a treatment that gets in the way of your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
Dr. Wolf has a lot of experience in treating patients with Invisalign. We’re excited to offer this technology to our Bayside braces patients.
Differences Between Invisalign & Braces
Unlike traditional braces, smooth plastic Invisalign aligners don't have metal components that can irritate your mouth.
Because they’re removed when you eat, you won't have to watch what you eat like you would when wearing braces – bring on the popcorn and peanuts.
In fact, the aligners must be removed for eating and for drinking anything other than water. You need to make sure you’re willing to do that before you decide on Invisalign clear braces.
To prevent staining, you’ll need to clean your teeth before putting the aligners back on after each time you eat.
Of course, brushing and flossing are much easier than with traditional braces, since you don’t have to work around any brackets and wires.
