Invisalign®, available at our Honlulu office, is the latest advancement in orthodontics that gradually straightens teeth with a series of custom-molded aligners.
Unlike traditional orthodontics, Invisalign is a clear, removable set of retainers that gently shifts teeth over time until patients achieve the beautiful smiles they desire. With Invisalign, patients no longer need bands, brackets, wire, braces or porcelain veneers to fix crooked teeth or gaps in the mouth.
Dr. Rohinton Patel and the team at Hawaii Pacific Dental Group offer Invisalign® as a discreet, comfortable alternative to traditional orthodontics. Instead of attaching metal wires to the teeth, Dr. Patel can create a series of clear plastic retainers that gradually adjust the teeth in about the same time required using traditional braces. While these retainers should be worn all day, they can be removed during meals.
A clear alternative.
Using Invisalign's clear, removable aligners, Dr. Patel straightens patients’ teeth within months. Patients are given a new, custom-fitted retainer every two weeks until the teeth are repositioned into their ideal placement. Using Hawaii Invisalign teeth aligners is a comfortable procedure that allows patients to remove the retainers as they eat, drink brush their teeth and floss.
Less treatment time.
Invisalign patients typically achieve the desired look within a year. Dr. Patel meets with patients every month to evaluate their progress and ensure they are achieving the ideal results. During these follow-up meetings, Invisalign patients are given additional aligners to use before their next appointment. Patients typically receive 18 to 30 retainers, depending on the extent of their treatment.
Invisible and comfortable.
Because Invisalign is clear, it is the obvious solution to teeth straightening rather than braces or other orthodontic treatments. Many patients claim that others do not even know they are wearing their retainers, because the aligners blend seamlessly into patients’ mouths.
Is Invisalign for Me?
Invisalign can treat a wide range of cosmetic dentistry concerns for adults and teens, including poor bites, crooked teeth, overly crowded teeth or widely spaced teeth. Dr. Patel is proud to be able to help patients with Invisalign treatments and can incorporate Invisalign in all treatment plans.
Look your best during treatment.
Invisalign is a clear, removable solution to crooked teeth, helping patients achieve stunning smiles without braces. Because Invisalign fits easily into patients’ schedules, more than half a million people use Invisalign, including hundreds of Hawaii Invisalign patients.
Patients who use Invisalign can enjoy:
- Ability to remove them for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing
- No metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth
- Subtle appearance that does not attract attention in social settings
