Straighten your teeth with

invisalign (invisible braces)

look great and comfortable doing it

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign® is a remarkable system of clear plastic removable aligners that straighten teeth comfortably without metal bands, brackets or wires. The pieces are custom-made to fit your teeth and are easily removable so you can eat, drink, brush, floss, and remove the aligners for special occasions if you need to. Best of all, aligners are so cosmetic they can be very difficult for others to notice you’re wearing them.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign uses advanced 3-D computer imaging to arrange tooth movement for each patient’s mouth, enabling us full control in designing your treatment plan. You wear each aligner for 2 weeks, taking them out to eat and to clean your teeth. Generally we’ll give you 3 aligners at a time, and you’ll come in to the office every 6 weeks for checkups. In addition to straightening crooked or misaligned teeth, Invisalign can eliminate crowding and large spaces between your teeth. Even complex cases such as overbites, underbites and crossbites can be treated.

What are the benefits?

Invisalign offers many benefits over traditional metal braces, including:
  • Cosmetic appeal
  • Less pain
  • Greater flexibility – aligners can be removed at any time
  • Easy to keep the teeth clean and healthy

Who is Invisalign for?

There are many factors to consider when evaluating your candidacy for Invisalign treatment. Some questions you may want to ask yourself are:
  • Do you work closely with many people, speak in front of groups of people, need to make good impressions on people frequently, or otherwise engage in interactions where you would benefit from these near-invisible braces?
  • Do you have a flexible enough schedule to make the follow-up appointments you’ll need when undergoing Invisalign treatment?
  • Do you want to close gaps between your teeth or spread out crowded teeth?
  • Do you want to correct an overbite or underbite?
  • Are you over 14 years old?
These are only basic guidelines. The best way to find out if Invisalign is right for you is to see us for a consultation.

Invisalign treatment process

To begin the Invisalign treatment process, come in for a brief consultation where we’ll discuss your situation and determine what Invisalign can do for you. When you’re ready, to start, impressions of your mouth will be made and sent to the Invisalign lab for processing.

The Invisalign process will then continue as follows:

  • Your treatment will be planned by us, using advanced 3-D computer imaging based upon your teeth impressions
  • One month later, return for aligner deliver.
  • Wear your clear and removable aligners day and night, removing them to eat, drink, brush and floss; the more you take them out, the longer it will take for Invisalign to achieve your goals.
  • Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks, then you move on to the next numbered aligner.
  • Watch as your teeth gradually move into the straight, cosmetic smile as planned!
Typically, Invisalign cases take about a year from start to finish. You will need be seen for a brief appointment every 6-8 weeks to review your progress. You will receive your next sets of aligners at each visit. Treatment time and the number of aligners you receive will vary case by case. With over 1 million documented cases, Invisalign has been shown to be highly effective at straightening teeth. If you have dental insurance that covers orthodontic treatment, Invisalign should qualify. To be certain, call your insurance company or allow us to do so for you.
