An alternative to traditional metal braces, Invisalign® Treatment is an advanced aligner system that gradually straightens teeth. Virtually invisible when worn, Invisalign clear aligners are removable, allowing wearers to maintain traditional oral hygiene habits without any impediments.

Invisalign treatment addresses a wide variety of dental conditions, including crossbites, underbites, overbites, open bites, crowding, and gapped teeth.

If your dentist determines that Invisalign treatment is right for you, the beginning of the process is simple; after precise impressions of your teeth are taken, all x-rays, photographs, and other relevant data are sent to Invisalign’s California headquarters.

Because it’s incredibly important for dentists that Invisalign patients are fully aware of what to expect during their treatment, an in-depth video detailing the entire process is produced to cover pricing, estimated treatment time, and the final position of your teeth. 

Once your aligners are ready, you’ll wear them every day for about a year and remove them to eat and brush your teeth. A set of aligners is worn for two weeks before needing to change them, with each new set made to fit slightly more tightly than the last in order to gradually shift your teeth to their new position. The treatment is followed by a form of retention, such as a nighttime retainer or bonded wire, in order to maintain results.
