Invisalign is famous for straightening teeth without metal braces, but did you know there are now even more features available?
There are options to keep teens on track, shrink treatment time to six months, or tackle complex orthodontic cases.
If you’ve ever considered Invisalign, now’s the time to get serious about improving your smile. Contact Heringer Dentistry in Bismarck, ND.
We Cater to Patients' Needs With an Expanded Invisalign Portfolio
As the original Invisalign clear aligner, patients have long turned this treatment when they want to straighten their teeth without the hassle of orthodontic treatment with metal braces. Patients wear a series of trays, swapping them out for the next in the series about every two weeks. Each aligner gently moves the teeth into a slightly more ideal position. By the time you work through all the aligners, your smile should be transformed.
Invisalign Teen works the same as the original Invisalign, except it has a special blue dot that indicates if the aligner is being worn for the recommended 22 hours a day. Since the aligners won't work if they aren't worn, the compliance indicator is a great way to monitor aligner use and step in for a heart-to-heart conversation with your child. Invisalign Teen also includes six extra replacement aligners should some go "missing."
What if you could straighten your teeth in just six months? For patients with minimal misalignment, Invisalign Express is the speedy orthodontic treatment for people who just can't wait for a better smile. The Invisalign Express program is designed for people who need only slight adjustments to perfect their smiles. Express uses about half the number of aligners as the original Invisalign.
With Invisalign's addition of SmartForce Attachments, Dr. Heringer can handle even complex orthodontic problems. Attachments are small "bumps" attached to your teeth that act like handles. They allow the aligner to grip a problem tooth and move it into the correct position without resorting to braces. Attachments are well-suited for rotated teeth, which leave little surface for an aligner to otherwise move.

How Does Invisalign Work?
The Benefits of Braces, Without the Stares
Invisalign uses clear aligners that are designed to fit snugly on your teeth and gently move them into the correct position over time. You will receive a series of numbered aligners and wear each for about two weeks before moving to the next in the series. If you stick with the program, your treatment is done when you have worn all the aligners.
