What is the Invisalign system?

The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign treatment uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to depict your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.

After the 3D modeling, a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the teeth have shifted into the final desired position.

Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your doctor based on your specific needs and response time.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually invisible, which makes Invisalign treatment a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others. Invisalign aligners are also removable. Unlike braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink whatever you want during treatment simply by removing the aligners when you eat. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign treatment does not use metal brackets or wires that could cause abrasions to your mouth. In addition, Invisalign requires fewer visits to our office since your treatment is already planned with a high level of precision.

Lastly, Invisalign treatment technology allows you to preview your results and treatment plan before you ever start your treatment so you can see how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.

More than 5,000,000 patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign aligners. The number of Invisalign smiles grows daily. Schedule a free consultation, we can answer any questions you might have, and get you started on the smile you’ve always wanted.
