Invisalign®

If you have considered seeking treatment to straighten your teeth, but feel reluctant to wear traditional metal braces, we offer a discreet and equally effective alternative.

Invisalign® is a virtually invisible way of straightening your teeth using a series of clear plastic “aligners.” These aligners are completely custom made for you. Every two weeks a new set of aligners are worn (no braces or wires required) which gently shift your teeth into place.

Invisalign® aligners move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.

Benefits of Invisalign

  • Faster treatment: With weekly aligner changes, you’re on your way to the smile you want even faster. Depending on your response to treatment, particularly in mature adults, we may consider longer periods between aligner changes.
  • Proven results: SmartTrack® material and SmartForce® features are clinically proven to improve control of tooth movement with Invisalign clear aligners
  • Better fit: Aligners made from SmartTrack material are comfortable, fit well, and are easy to put on and take off.
  • Effective: Invisalign clear aligners can treat a wide range of teeth-straightening conditions, including crossbites, crowding, open bites, gapped teeth, overbites, and underbites.
  • Virtually invisible: Most people won’t even know you’re going through treatment, because Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible!
  • Comfortable: Invisalign clear aligner trays are not only smooth and comfortable to wear, but they’re also removable. That means you can continue doing all the things you normally would, from brushing and flossing to eating whatever you like.
  • Easier home care: Since Invisalign aligners are removable, they are easy to brush and clean regularly.
  • Convenient: Invisalign treatment is ideal for your busy schedule, since you only need to visit our office every six weeks.

The Invisalign Treatment Process

Your First Invisalign Consultation

At your initial consultation, we will discuss your orthodontic needs and evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is right for you.

Your Custom InvisalignTreatment Plan

We will use a scanner such as the iTero® digital scanning system to create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth. Then we will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new smile before you even start your treatment.

Getting Your Invisalign Clear Aligners

Your custom-made aligners will be made of Invisalign’s proprietary SmartTrack® material. They’re virtually invisible, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them during your teeth straightening. These aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear and won't irritate your gums and cheeks like traditional braces sometimes do. Wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results, and take them out only to eat, brush, and floss.

Your Progress

As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. We may recommend that you begin wearing a new set of aligners every week and schedule checkups every six weeks or so. Your orthodontist will give you a detailed plan.

Taking Care of Your New Smile

When your treatment is complete, ask us about a Vivera® retainer. Vivera retainers are custom-made using the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign clear aligners. These retainers gently but purposefully remind the teeth to stay straight after your active Invisalign treatment is complete, so you can keep your smile for life!
