For an invisible way to straighten your teeth without traditional braces, consider Invisalign® appliances from South Shore Dental. Invisalign® uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. These are made through a combination of Dr. DiGioia's expertise and 3D computer imaging technology.
The Invisalign® Process
You wear each set of aligners for about two 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 Dr. DiGioia has prescribed. You'll visit Dr. DiGioia about once every six 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 18 - 30. Treatment times vary from case to case.
