Dr. Walle is an Invisalign Preferred Provider
Dr. Walle and his staff at Klamath Falls Orthodontics have offered orthodontic treatment with Invisalign since 2000. Dr. Walle is an Invisalign Preferred Provider. Klamath Falls Orthodontics is one of the largest Invisalign practices in Southern Oregon, with Dr. Walle having treated more patients with Invisalign than most any other provider in southern Oregon.
Invisalign treatments consist of a series of aligners that are changed every one to two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. And since your Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth with a plan devised by you and Dr. Walle, you know you’ll end up with a smile that truly fits.
What is Invisalign®?
The Invisalign® system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Using advanced 3-D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.
Like brackets and arch wires are to braces, Invisalign aligners move teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on your teeth. The main difference is that Invisalign not only controls forces, but also the timing of the force application. During each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move. These movements are determined by your doctor as he maps out your unique Invisalign treatment plan.
The Primary Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life. Invisalign aligners are practically clear. No one may even notice that you’re wearing these virtually invisible “braces,” making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others.
Invisalign is removable. Unlike braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
Unlike braces, there are no metal brackets or wires with the Invisalign system that could cause irritation to your mouth. Plus since your office visits during treatment don’t involve wire adjustments, you’ll likely spend less time in the doctor’s chair.
While Invisalign moves your teeth without the pain and anxiety of metal braces, some people will experience temporary discomfort for a few days at the beginning of each new stage of treatment. This is normal and is typically described as a feeling of pressure. It’s also a sign that Invisalign is working, as it moves your teeth to their final destination. This discomfort typically goes away in a couple of days.
And finally, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
