The Clear Alternative to Braces
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® can transform your smile without wires and brackets helping you stay on track.
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.

Invisalign® is the clear alternative to old school braces. With Invisalign®, you can have a straighter smile in as little as six months with the average patient seeing results between 12 and 18 months.
How it Works
Dr. Wang will evaluate your teeth and goals. If you are a good candidate we start by taking photos, measurements and models of your teeth. Using the models / computer scans of your teeth we use computer design software that simulates the specific desired movements of each tooth at each stage of alignment. You return to the office to officially start you treatment. We confirm the fit of the aligners and and adjust if needed to help move the teeth more efficiently. We then see you every couple of months to monitor or modify treatment if necessary.
