Thinking about Invisalign? You’re not alone. After all, we all want beautiful, straight teeth but nobody particularly looks forwards to wearing traditional braces – even the newer, translucent types are never going to be a popular fashion choice. It’s no surprise then that the practically invisible braces from Invisalign are one of the most popular orthodontic offerings here at Dr. Bostani’s Advanced Dental.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign is a clear aligner that is made using sophisticated computer-aided design and manufacturing technology to produce custom plastic teeth covers. Over time, the covers push or pull a patient’s teeth in the desired direction. They are replaced every two weeks as the teeth gradually move to their desired position.
Who Uses Invisalign?
Invisalign patients are often adults who are not interested in going through a rite of childhood passage as grownups, but still desire more attractive, healthier teeth. In addition, Invisalign is popular with people who are concerned about comfort and convenience. The thin layers of plastic that fit over the teeth are gentle and easy to remove when it’s time to brush and floss.

Before & After Results
I wanted to do this Invisalign correction for this patient for years, and he finally decided to do it. The case turned out great, correcting the overbite as well as the crowding in less than a year.
Great Invisalign case that required 17 Aligners and 3 C-Chain aligners to finish. Patient was very cooperative with Aligner use, and this case finished in the approximate time required. Patient was very happy with the results and is currently 2 years post-treatment.
