In the past, getting braces meant years of painful adjustments and struggling with self-image. However, since 1999 Invisalign has changed the face of orthodontics for over half a million satisfied patients.
Instead of wires or bands attached to the outside of your teeth, where the world can see them, Invisalign treatment utilizes cutting-edge technology to prepare a series of clear plastic molds of your teeth during each stage of alignment. Every two weeks, we will check on your progress and give you the next mold, or “aligner,” to keep your treatment on track.
The aligners are removable, making for easier eating, brushing, and flossing. They move your teeth into place gradually, but in a much shorter length of time than normal braces – you’ll achieve results in six months to a year with Invisalign. Invisalign can improve the smiles of anyone with crossbites, overbites, underbites, crowded teeth or teeth spaced too far apart.
Since we offer the convenience of having dental and orthodontic care in one location, our dentists and hygienists can continue to closely monitor your entire mouth closely for formation of cavities or gum recession during your orthodontic treatment time. Once Invisalign treatment is complete, the position of your teeth is closely checked at your 6-month check-ups.
