The Clear Alternative for a Straighter Smile
Dr. Rykard has a state-of-the-art solution that may permit you to achieve straight teeth in as
little as 9 - 15 months! Invisalign™ invisible aligners can correct overcrowding, widely
gapped teeth, overbite, underbite, or crossbite.
Innovative 3-D computer-imaging technology designs your entire treatment plan from the present
position of your teeth to your finished smile. From this plan, transparent thermoplastic aligners
are generated. Similar in style to teeth-whitening trays, Invisalign aligners are custom made to
slide over your original teeth. When you install the first set of aligners, they use gentle forces
to shift your teeth into a new position. About two weeks later, you replace them with the second
set of aligners, and progress through treatment for approximately a year. You’re only required to
be seen in the office for evaluation every four to eight weeks. Complete treatment time is based
on your personal needs and goals.
Invisalign Boosts Your Confidence
There are some “clear” benefits to the Invisalign program. For example, no one will realize you’re
straightening your teeth because the transparency of the aligners makes them nearly invisible! People
will have to be told you’re wearing aligners, or look very closely, to be able to spot them. This
will be a real confidence booster when it comes to your smile all through your active treatment.
Don’t forget comfort! No braces, wires, or headgear means no mouth irritation. The aligners are a single
unit, with no metal or wires to be tweaked, so you even get to devote less time to Dr. Rykard’s dental chair.
Then there’s the convenience factor. Though you wear the aligners 24 hours a day, they’re quick to pull
out for eating and brushing, which equates to no food restrictions. Removing plaque and keeping your
teeth clean is just as anxiety-free as it was prior to treatment, because there are no braces to get in
