Invisible Braces – (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. So 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.
