    PRIOR LAKE, MN, February 21, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- For adults who want a straighter smile without undergoing visible, traditional wire-bracket braces, Dr. Thomas Morgan offers Invisalign as a clear solution. With Invisalign's clear aligners, Prior Lake residents can now straighten their teeth without anyone even noticing that they are undergoing treatment. Straightening teeth will not interfere with a person's busy lifestyle with the availability of Invisalign in Prior Lake.

Requiring only one set of impressions and photographs of a patient's teeth, Invisalign's method is simpler than its predecessors. Impressions are used to create a three-dimensional computer projection of how teeth can be moved in increments. This forms the basis for developing a series of custom-made aligners that are specifically designed to accomplish a gradual movement of a patient's teeth.

Invisalign can be used to correct the following types of mild dental problems:
- Overly crowded teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
- Overbite
- Cross-bite
- Mild relapse

Aligners are manufactured at the Align Technologies dental laboratory using a computer-aided design process. Once fabricated, the aligners are sent to Dr. Thomas Morgan, Prior Lake dentist, who will typically dispense them in groups of one or two at a time during regular check-up appointments in order to ensure proper maintenance of each patient's treatment.

"Each aligner must be worn in its specific order for about two weeks. During this time your teeth will move in small increments and must be worn at least 20 hours a day in order to reposition your teeth successfully. Typical treatment requires approximately 20 to 30 aligners for both the upper and lower teeth and the time for treatment depends on the specific alignment problem," said Prior Lake, MN dentist, Dr. Thomas Morgan.

Invisalign takes less time to straighten a person's smile than with traditional braces. The choice for over half a million people, Invisalign's added benefits include:
- Unobtrusive in business meetings or social gatherings
- No metal wires or bands to irritate the mouth
- Most people won't even notice a patient is wearing aligners

Patients who are ready to take the next step to getting a straighter smile should speak with Dr. Thomas Morgan, a Prior Lake cosmetic dentist, to find out if he or she is a good candidate for Invisalign. With faster and less noticeability than with traditional braces, it is no wonder why most patients in Prior Lake choose Invisalign for a straighter smile. For more information, patients can visit
