Invisalign Works with Your Lifestyle Not Against It

Incredibly discreet.
Invisalign trays are customized to comfortably fit your smile. They are fabricated from a clear plastic material, so most people will never even notice that you’re wearing them.

Improved comfort.
Unlike metal brackets and wires, the snug fit and smooth edges will never rub, snag, or irritate the delicate soft tissues inside your mouth.

No hygiene or diet restrictions.
Since the trays are removable, Invisalign patients can brush and floss normally while continuing to enjoy all their favorite sticky, crunchy foods.

Let’s take a closer look at how it works.

But Am I a Good Candidate?

Invisalign can treat many of the same types of concerns as metal braces, including underbites, overbites, crossbites, and open bites. The treatment can close gaps in your smile and also align overly crowded teeth. Even patients with complex cases are usually considered good candidates for Invisalign.

Still not convinced it's that easy?

What to Expect during Treatment

Your dentist will evaluate your case.

Impressions are taken of your teeth and sent to Invisalign.

Your dentist will give you your aligners after about four weeks.

Wear the trays 20-22 hours each day, switching sets every two weeks.

Visit your dentist roughly every six weeks for a check-up.

Achieve your ideal smile in just 12 months, on average.

What are you waiting for?

Take the First Step

In addition to the original system, Invisalign is also available in Teen and Express options. Patients whose cases are considered too severe for Invisalign treatment can nearly always achieve their goals with traditional orthodontics. In very rare cases, surgery may be recommended. 

Orthodontics can enhance your appearance and lessen your risk of cavities and gum disease. With options like Invisalign, there is no reason to delay treatment. Take the next step and schedule an appointment today.
