Invisalign Treatment


Becoming a Premier Preferred Provider with Invisalign® is high honor. By treating so many people with Invisalign®, Dr Ekim has created efficiencies in treatment that will give her patients the most comfortable and enjoyable orthodontic experience. From the simple or complex cases, Dr Ekim has many tools to get the desired outcome. When considering Invisalign®, consider a Premier Preferred Provider.

We are proud to offer Invisalign to our patients in Burnsville and Prior Lake MN. Dr. Ekim will evaluate whether Invisalign is a suitable treatment option for you when you come in for your first consultation. Invisalign offers effective orthodontic treatment without wires or brackets. Instead, Invisalign utilizes a series of clear, custom and removable appliances called aligners. For this very reason many patients ask about this treatment option due to the fact it allows one to straighten their teeth without others even being aware they are under going.

Clearly Different

So how does Invisalign work? The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. The Invisalign aligners are customized to gradually move with your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.

Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. You will wear each aligned for two weeks, taking them out for everyday tasks such as eating, brushing and flossing. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss.

In order to be sure you attain the best possible results, only an orthodontist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology such as Dr. Ekim can diagnose and treat using Invisalign. During your first patient exam Dr. Ekim will determine if Invisalign is right for you. Schedule your complimentary new patient exam today and see if Invisalign is a treatment option that will work for you.
