Dr. Wang was an early adopter of Invisalign® in Portland and has treated hundreds of patients with this virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. This modern take on braces inconspicuously treats crooked and crowded teeth in adults and teens. It is a completely customized method of efficiently and comfortably moving teeth to make them straighter and healthier.
Invisalign® involves a series of clear plastic braces or aligners, usually 11-31, that are custom made to fit your teeth. These aligners are soft, pliable, comfortable, and nearly invisible. In fact, the only one that will know you are getting your teeth straightened will be you and Centerport Dental.
Every one to two weeks, depending on your treatment plan, you will change to a new aligner. This allows your teeth to gradually move into place. Because Dr. Wang has designed each aligner, you can be assured that your teeth are shifting as they should.
When you receive your new invisible braces, you will be instructed to wear the aligners 20 to 22 hours every day. You will only remove your Invisalign® when you have a meal, brush, and floss. It is imperative that you be diligent about this if you want your treatment plan to stay on schedule.
