Invisible aligners are removable mouthpieces that fit snugly over your teeth. They put mild pressure on your jaw and periodontal ligament (a band of tissue that anchors your teeth), improving their alignment and position.
Invisible aligners are made of clear thermoplastic. They blend in with your smile and are incredibly durable. As a result, treatment is discreet and carefree.
At Amazing Smiles Orthodontics, Dr. Yusupov and the team use invisible aligners to correct various alignment problems, including:

After a review of your dental records, a discussion of your goals, and an oral exam, Dr. Yusupov can make custom orthodontics treatment recommendations.
At Amazing Smiles Orthodontics, invisible aligner treatment begins with a comprehensive in-office consultation. If Dr. Yusupov identifies one or more alignment issues, you qualify for treatment. He takes digital impressions of your mouth with a scanner and uploads them to a computer program.
Dr. Yusupov uses the program to create a custom treatment plan, mapping out the exact movements of your teeth and jaw. After finalizing the plan, he sends your scans to a dental lab that creates a set of custom invisible aligners.
When the lab finishes your aligners, you return to Amazing Smiles Orthodontics and try them on. Dr. Yusupov explains how to care for your aligners and asks you to wear them 20-22 hours a day, only removing them to eat or brush and floss.
During treatment, you visit Amazing Smiles Orthodontics every few weeks. At each checkup, Dr. Yusupov monitors your progress and adjusts the plan as necessary.
Orthodontic treatment with invisible aligners typically takes 12-18 months* but it may take longer, depending on the alignment problems addressed. Be patient, follow Dr. Yusupov’s instructions, and wear your aligners as prescribed.
