At Pearl dental clinic we are an accredited Invisalign Platinum Elite provider as we have carried out well over 1,500 Invisalign cases, treating a range of simple to complicated orthodontic cases with Invisalign since 2008. We have treated crowded, spaced, crooked, and misaligned teeth with Invisalign ranging in treatment time from 3 to 18 months with most Invisalign cases completed in around 9 months. In the Invisalign gallery part of our website, we have uploaded a fraction of our completed before and after Invisalign images so that patients could see that even very complex orthodontic treatments are possible with Invisalign.
If you have an increased overbite, overjet or simply have teeth that are crowded or spaced, by browsing through our Invisalign galleries you will be able to see that a lot of difficult orthodontic cases can be treated discreetly with Invisalign almost all the time without any tooth extractions. Fixed braces are an alternative to Invisalign but we find that a lot of adult patients prefer Invisalign to fixed braces as its easier to clean teeth with Invisalign and the treatment is much more discreet compared to fixed braces.
There are still a few very complex orthodontic cases that need fixed braces sometimes with tooth extractions, but most adult orthodontic cases can now be treated with Invisalign as can be seen in our Invisalign gallery. As with all orthodontic treatments, patients must ensure that their teeth and gums are in a dentally fit state before any Invisalign treatment can be started. Patients must also be prepared to wear fixed or removable retainers after the orthodontic treatment is completed to prevent relapse.
