When it comes to “invisible” braces, Invisalign is the gold standard. Unlike traditional dental braces, which use metal brackets and wires to straighten teeth, Invisalign uses a custom-made series of clear plastic aligners that are completely removable.
The comfort and convenience of Invisalign is unbeatable. You can eat whatever you want, you can remove your aligners whenever you need to, and you can brush and floss more effectively. Invisalign is effective for patients who have problems with crowding, spacing, crossbites, overbites, and underbites.
All patients with Invisalign receive comprehensive, guided professional treatment to achieve a beautiful, functional smile. Before beginning Invisalign treatment, you will have an exam to ensure your gums and teeth are healthy. Impressions of your teeth and digital photos are used to customize a digital virtual plan for your full treatment. From the very beginning, you will be able to see the goal for your new smile! Clear plastic aligners are made to gradually shift the positions of your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for about 2 weeks. Every 6-8 weeks, you will have an appointment in our office to track the progress of your Invisalign treatment. Upon completion, retainers prevent shifting from the new positions of your teeth.
