Invisalign & Invisalign Teen

invisalign new v2

Invisalign clear aligners are made of almost invisible polyurethane plastic. They work the same way traditional braces do: by applying carefully controlled forces to teeth to move them into a better position. Rather than being cemented or bonded to the teeth as metal or clear braces are, clear aligners are completely removable-- for important social occasions, for eating, and most importantly, for tooth-brushing and flossing. This advantage can also be a disadvantage though: It means you must resist the temptation to take out your aligners more than is advised. 


Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen®: The Straightest Way to a Great Smile

If you are a candidate for Invisalign®  or Invisalign teen®you might find it's the best fit for your lifestyle: It lets you eat what you want, makes it easier to clean your teeth and keep up with oral hygiene — and best of all, it's virtually invisible.


Is a clear aligner right for you? It all depends on what kind of orthodontic treatment you need. Traditional metal braces still work best in some situations — ask us if you're a candidate.


Clearly Different

The Invisalign® System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign® aligners are designed to 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. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign® is right for you. After receiving precise treatment instructions, Invisalign® uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions into a sequence of finely calibrated aligners -- as few as 10 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually -- week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you'll be smiling like you never have before!
