Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted – without braces. At your consultation, our doctors can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
What is it?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing, so you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while you are in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in our office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for one to two 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 final position the doctor has prescribed. You'll visit our practice about once every six to ten weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts 9 to 15 months, and the number of aligners worn during treatment is usually between 20 and 40, but both numbers will vary from case to case. At your consultation, the doctor will let you know how long your treatment is expected to take.
