Invisalign® is a wonderful, modern alternative treatment to braces. You can straighten your teeth without installing metal in your mouth. Instead, we use plastic trays (also known as aligners) to move your teeth back into place. Each aligner is custom made to fit your mouth so you don’t have to worry about mouth irritation or anything else that traditional braces can cause.
Since the aligners are removable, they are easier to keep clean. You can also continue to brush and floss your teeth without trying to avoid harming your braces.
Invisalign® is also popular because the aligners are clear, so most people don’t even know you are wearing anything unless you tell them.

Invisalign® uses a set of clear aligners to give you a dazzling smile. We know that you will probably have some questions, so we compiled a list of frequently asked questions below.
Will Invisalign® fit my lifestyle?
Many people don’t want braces because of the cost, discomfort, and inconvenience. However, Invisalign® is perfect for any adult or teen looking for a better smile.
The clear aligners are removable, so you can take them out and eat whatever you want. You can also take them out to brush your teeth, which will keep your teeth healthy through your whole treatment.
You can still do whatever you want when you wear your Invisalign® aligners. You can work, go to school, play sports, and do whatever else you enjoy doing without the hassle of metal braces.
You won’t need follow-up appointments as often, though each treatment plan is different. Typically, you won’t be going to the orthodontist’s office quite as often as you would if you were wearing traditional braces.
What is Invisalign®?
The Invisalign® system is a clear way to straighten your teeth and give you a dazzling smile using advanced, 3D computer-imaging technology to create your whole treatment plan from where your teeth are now to where they need to be.
Each clear aligner is custom made for your teeth. The aligners will start to move your teeth in the right direction comfortably. Every two weeks, you will get new aligners, which will move your teeth a little bit more until we achieve the desired result.
Since each mouth is different, treatment times will vary depending on your needs.
What are the benefits of Invisalign®?
Since Invisalign® is clear, you can get the results you desire without anyone even knowing you are getting treated. You can still perform all of your regular daily tasks while simultaneously and discreetly working on your smile.
Since the aligners are fully removable, you can eat whatever you want and maintain an uninterrupted mouth care routine.
Invisalign® is also more comfortable than traditional braces since the aligners are custom made for your mouth. Traditional braces often cause irritation from the metal wires and brackets.
With Invisalign® braces, you will spend significantly less time at appointments since the system is easy to use by yourself and requires very few follow-up visits.
Using the latest technology, we can show you exactly where you are and what your mouth will look like when you are done. Many people enjoy seeing a visual of their future perfect smile before they get started.
How many patients are in Invisalign® treatment?
More than 3,000,000 patients have invested in Invisalign® clear aligners, and more get started every day.
