Crooked teeth can present oral health and cosmetic dental concerns that could affect your long-term oral health.

The Invisalign Process
The process can last for as little as 11 months. We will use the clear aligner system to gradually shift teeth to the desired position. It is a dynamic system that works by periodically changing the aligners shape. The first step is a consultation where we will take an impression of the current state of your teeth, and also create a digital representation of the desired result. This impression will be sent to Invisalign to create your first set of aligners. You will receive a set of clear aligners periodically. Once you have used the first set for a designated time, you will be required to switch to the new set. This allows your teeth to slowly move into position without pain. We will monitor your progress throughout the process to ensure your teeth are shifting correctly. Your treatment will last for as long as it takes to correct your crooked teeth. Naturally, if you have significant issues, it will take longer. With proper use and oral care, you can expect quick results.
Dr. Chibb offers personalized dental consultations to help patients determine if you are the right candidate for Invisalign treatments. For more complex orthodontic concerns that compromise the function of the jaw, Dr. Chibb may recommend patients to a reputable local orthodontist.
