Invisalign - The Clear Alternative to Braces 

We often hear, "I want straight, healthy teeth, but I'm not sure I want braces.  Is there any other way I can straighten my teeth without using traditional braces?"  The answer is - YES!  

A treatment option commonly used in our practice is Invisalign.  Invisalign straightens teeth without wires or brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. Invisalign aligners are designed to move teeth in small steps to the desired final position. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.

So, what is so great about Invisalign?

  1. It is nearly INVISIBLE!  Invisalign trays are made of clear plastic and are virtually undetectable on the teeth.  
  2. The trays are removeable!  Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners are not glued to your teeth.  You simply remove them to brush, floss, and eat.  And, you can still eat your favorite foods - no restrictions!
  3. It is much easier to maintain good oral hygiene with Invisalign than with traditional braces.  No need to brush around wires or brackets, simply remove the trays and brush and floss.
  4. Invisalign trays are much more comfortable than brackets and wires!  The trays are smooth and will not cause much irritation to the cheeks or gums.
  5. Invisalign patients typically require less appointments than those in traditional braces.  Appointments are generally 8 weeks apart.
