Invisalign Patient Testimonial
Invisalign for TMJ
Dr. Becker will custom design a series of aligners that will be tailored to your personal orthodontic needs. Patients wear the aligners up to 22 hours a day as the teeth gradually shift into alignment. Aligner sets are typically switched out every 2 weeks, but exact times will be determined by personal oral health. The aligners can shift teeth and the bite back into alignment alleviating associated TMJ pain.
