Invisalign®

 

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign® is the “invisible” way to straighten your teeth without traditional braces. Invisalign works through a series of clear, removable, and comfortable aligners. The aligners are designed and constructed by computer. The treatment consists of a series of these clear overlay retainer appliances, which are removed for brushing your teeth and eating. Invisalign® can help you get the great smile you’ve always wanted because it’s…

  • Invisible, so no one can tell you’re straightening your teeth. Now you can smile more during treatment as well as after.
  • Removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are no problem.
  • Comfortable, because it has no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s 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 Invisalign® Work?

You wear each set of aligners for about 2 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 your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed.

You’ll visit your orthodontist or dentist about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

Testimonials

 
Christa, age 44, Property Manager:

“I’m so glad I made the investment to go with aligners rather than metal braces. I’ve heard stories of people having food stuck in their metal braces, and I didn’t want to go through that. It’s so easy – all I have to do is remove my aligners when I eat.”

 

Teresa, age 39, Media Buyer:

“At first, I was skeptical about whether or not to use plastic aligners to straighten my teeth, but I am very glad I decided to make the investment. In just about nine months my teeth were straightened using the clear, comfortable and easy-to-remove aligners. I’m a busy guy and using Invisalign fit right into my lifestyle.”

For those who do not want their braces to be very noticeable, clear ceramic braces are an aesthetic alternative. Clear braces move your teeth in exactly the same way as metal braces do. Ceramic braces are quite comfortable to wear and just as efficient at moving teeth as traditional metal braces.

Metal Braces Vs. Ceramic Braces

Traditional metal braces are effective, less expensive but at the same time will give you a metallic smile, which can make some people feel very self-concious. On the other hand, ceramic braces are made of a clear material that makes it difficult to tell if you’re wearing braces at all. The natural look of these smooth, sculpted and completely clear ceramic braces are strong and will not stain or discolor, and blend in with any tooth shade. Also, they are larger, covering more of the tooth than the metal braces.
