Invisalign: An Innovative Solution

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that allows you to achieve straight teeth without the look of metal braces. It looks like a clear plastic retainer and the best part is you can remove it anytime you want. You can easily take it off when you want to eat, brush, floss or for a special event. Our dentist will tell you exactly how long you must keep them on every day after assessing the structure and shape of your teeth. Invisalign can give visible results much more quickly than traditional braces, but total treatment times vary depending on the severity of your misalignment. 

How Does it Work?

This teeth alignment system uses a series of plastic shells that fit snugly over your teeth. They are transparent and customized to meet your unique needs. Once our dentist determines Invisalign is right for you, we will take impressions of your teeth. These impressions create a 3D model of your teeth, which is used to develop your treatment plan and design your aligners. After your treatment plan is in place and your aligners are ready, our dentist will explain how long to wear them each day and how to properly care for them. You'll return to our office periodically so we can monitor your progress and give you the next set of aligners. 

Benefits of Invisalign:

  • Virtually Invisible: Invisalign uses transparent aligners that are hardly noticeable so you can stick to your treatment and look great throughout the day  

  • No Brackets or Wires: There are no metal brackets or wires, so there are no uncomfortable adjustments or pain from poking wires

  • Quick Results: Treatment timelines vary considerably from patient to patient, but Invisalign treatments typically take a fraction of the time as treatment with traditional braces

  • Easy Maintenance: Unlike traditional braces, which make brushing and flossing extremely difficult, Invisalign is removable, so you can brush and floss as you normally would

  • Treats Simple and Complex Cases: Invisalign can be used for both simple and complex cases

  • Convenient Schedule: Invisalign is a great alternative to braces if you are always on the move. It enables you to stick to your busy schedule as it requires visits only every four to six weeks at our dental office
