Invisalign

Invisalign aligners offer a clear, comfortable, and discreet orthodontic option for adults and teens. These removable aligners simply slip off your teeth, nudging them into the desired position. No wires or metal brackets are required.

The Invisalign system is the original clear aligners alternative to traditional braces. They work well for our patients who have healthy teeth and gums but are unhappy with the alignment of their smile.

Treatment Time Frame

Every person’s smile is unique. Depending on your bite alignment, cases can be completed in as quickly as six months. Others that are more complex may require 12-18 months or more. Typically, Invisalign trays offer quicker results than traditional braces.

During your consultation, we will evaluate the alignment of your teeth to estimate the overall time frame of your treatment. A scan of your bite will be sent to Invisalign labs, which will then return a proposed digital treatment plan with a more accurate time frame.

Advantages of Invisalign Therapy

There are no major restrictions for Invisalign treatment. Any adult or teen with a generally healthy mouth will qualify. Since these aligners are more comfortable than metal systems, they’re easier to adjust to and won’t interfere with your daily activities.

Invisalign patients can easily remove their aligners for daily home care or when eating. There are no restrictions since the trays are removable.

In addition to the quicker and more comfortable timeframe, Invisalign trays’ discreet design makes them a preferred solution for our adult patients. Their translucent appearance makes them practically invisible during everyday conversations.
