Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment

Spannhake Orthodontics is a Certified Invisalign Provider. Consider invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted – without braces. A consultation with Dr. Spannhake can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So you can smile during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology, and been proven effective.

Why should I want it?
Not only are the aligners invisible, 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. Invisalign also allows you to view your virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when treatment is complete.

How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, 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. Spannhake Orthodontics has prescribed your visit about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 to 30, but both will vary from case to case.
