Invisalign in Portland, Oregon

Getting Started

If you’re dreaming of a beautiful confident smile and looking for an alternative over the traditional wire and bracket braces, Invisalign is a great solution. Invisalign braces are clear, comfortable and just as effective as traditional braces. Dr. Bolouri is a trained and authorized Invisalign provider. During your initial visit to our office, we will be able to determine if Invisalign is a good treatment option for you. At that time we will also create 3D imagery to map out a precise treatment plan that will allow you to see a visual representation of how Invisalign will improve the look of your smile. We have successfully treated many patients with this revolutionary technology that is taking the dental world by storm.

A Treatment That Accommodates Your Life

With Invisalign, there’s no need stress about drawing unnecessary attention to your teeth and braces. For the most part, people won’t even notice you are wearing braces. The transparent liners make Invisalign the most discreet option available for braces.

Your life is already busy enough. Invisalign allows you to remove your aligners for those special events where you might not want to wear braces. You can also maintain proper oral hygiene by removing them when you eat, floss or brush your teeth. These are just a few ways Invisalign adapts to your lifestyle.

Invisalign is much more comfortable than traditional metal braces. They feature smooth edges that won’t get caught on the sides of your mouth. While metal braces have been known to cause sores and irritation in your mouth, Invisalign fits comfortable and perfectly. You might even forget that you’re wearing them.

You might be surprised to learn that while Invisalign provides many benefits over traditional wire braces, they are also just as effective and usually take less time to complete treatment. In fact, a typical Invisalign alignment process is usually under a year. During your first appointment we will take impressions of your mouth and design custom fit Invisalign aligners specifically made for you. You’ll be able to see your projected results long before your treatment is completed.

Improve Your Overall Health with Invisalign

Not only will Invisalign braces give you the beautiful straight smile you have always dreamed of, but also they can aid in the treatment of other common oral health issues, including:

• Crowded teeth: If you are suffering from crowded teeth due to a lack of space in your mouth, it may be causing you pain from the twisting and movement of your teeth. Spacing them out with Invisalign alignment will help with this common issue.

• Crossbite: Invisalign is often used to treat a cross bite caused by the misalignment of your upper and lower jaws.

• Overbite: An overbite can cause your upper teeth to extend over your lower teeth. An overbite is typically caused by bone overgrowth or your genetics, but can easily be treated using Invisalign.

• Underbite: When your lower teeth extend past your upper teeth, you are at risk for gum disease, tooth decay and painful jaw issues. Invisalign can treat your underbite before it comes a more serious issue.

The Invisalign Process

Once we have assessed your teeth and determined your goals, an individual treatment plan will be created for you and custom-made clear aligners will be designed to fit comfortably in your mouth. These aligners are made of smooth BPA-free plastic that will not cause any irritation unlike metal braces. Wear them throughout the day – only removing them whenever you eat or brush your teeth. Over the course of the treatment, your teeth will gently shift into place. You should be wearing your aligners for about 20 to 22 hours per day in order for your treatment to be effective. The more you wear your aligners, the faster your treatment will be completed.

Approximately every two weeks, we will change aligners, helping your teeth move into a straighter position one step at a time until you have that beautiful healthy smile you have always wanted. While each case and patient is different, a typical treatment plan will take about a year for adults. For teenagers the treatment plan is comparable to traditional braces.
