What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign uses invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to give you the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted.
A series of clear, removable aligners help to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
Benefits Of Invisalign
Invisalign has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide.
From mild cases of crooked and protruding teeth to more difficult dental problems involving overbite or underbite, Invisalign effectively corrects a wide variety of cosmetic dental problems.
No one can tell you’re wearing them and they’re effective for adults and teenagers alike.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The aligners are made through a combination of our expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology. You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the their final position
You’ll visit us about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9 – 15 months and the average number of aligners during treatment is between 18 – 30, but both will vary from case to case.
Caring For Your Teeth And Aligners
The aligners can be removed for regular brushing and flossing. You can also brush your aligners or clean them using a special cleaning kit.
Is Invisalign Right For You?
Invisalign is an unobtrusive and effective alternative to braces. They are easily removed to eat or for special occasions when you may not want to wear them. However, they are most effective when worn regularly.
