Invisalign

Clear aligners can be an effective alternative to traditional braces and involve a system of clear removable trays to straighten teeth. A consultation with your Orthodontist can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

How does Invisalign work?

Aligners are custom made with 3D computer imagining technology from a strong plastic material to fit over your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, placing a gradual force on the tooth to achieve the prescribed tooth movement. The aligners are only removed when eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. The length of treatment depends on the severity of your case.

Advantages of Invisalign

Clear aligners are a wonderful alternative for patients who have had treatment in the past and want to make minor corrections to their smile as well as for those who do not want to wear traditional braces. The advantages to clear aligners are:

  • Removable, making it easier to maintain your overall dental health, less dietary restrictions
  • Comfortable, less irritating to the cheeks and gums because they are made of plastic
  • Less time in the Orthodontist’s office getting adjustments because there are no brackets or wires

If you are interested in orthodontic treatment with clear aligners, schedule an appointment and talk to your Orthodontist about whether this is the right option for you. Scheduling an exam is your first step in achieving the beautiful smile you have always wanted.
