ALTERNATIVE TO BRACES

Invisalign is proven technology designed to give you the smile you’ve always wanted, without the pain and anxiety associated with metal braces. To help you get a more beautiful smile, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth. You wear a set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each set of aligners with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move until they reach the position the doctor has prescribed for you. The average treatment time is about a year.
An average Invisalign course of treatment takes about a year. At regular intervals, you’ll receive a new set of custom-molded clear aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you, determined by the doctor for your course of treatment.

Since Invisalign is practically invisible, there’s no unwarranted attention to your mouth. In fact, very few people will notice at all – unless you tell them. They’re comfortable to wear and remove easily when you eat, brush, and floss.

CLEAR AND COMFORTABLE

Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help. It’s successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, underbites and even cross-bites.

Because Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to position and straighten teeth, you can keep your active lifestyle during treatment. Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners have no metal bands or wires to irritate your mouth. So go ahead and be as active as you like. Since Invisalign is removable, just take the clear aligners out for special events or if you’re going to indulge in a sticky, gooey snack.

LOOK YOUR BEST

Of course you want to look great, at work, at school, with friends. Maybe you speak to groups or conduct meetings. You still can. Because Invisalign is clear and nearly invisible, most people will never know you’re straightening your teeth – unless you tell them. And when your course of treatment has ended, you can feel more confident, whether in front of people or not. You’re going to have a stunning smile. All across the country, people like you now have great smiles and straighter teeth, thanks to Invisalign. Why not join them?

FAQ

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a method of straightening teeth without the need for the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces. It’s an easy, effective orthodontic treatment that’s growing more popular by the year.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign consists of a series of clear plastic aligners that move your teeth bit by bit. You wear each aligner for several weeks, then switch to the next one. Over time, your teeth straighten out. This is the same process that traditional braces achieve through the use of orthodontic bands and wire adjustments. The difference is that Invisalign is easier and less intrusive.

Are the aligners comfortable?

Yes! In fact, after your first few days with a new aligner, it’s easy to forget that you’re even wearing them. During those first few days, you will feel pressure on your teeth that gradually subsides as the aligner moves them to a new position. Invisalign is much more comfortable than braces because the aligners are smooth, as opposed to hard, bumpy brackets.

Can I eat normally with Invisalign?

Yes! The aligners are easily removable and meant to be taken out while eating and put back in afterwards. Unlike braces, you are not restricted in the types of foods you can eat while undergoing treatment.

How long do I need to wear my aligners?

The aligners are meant to be worn 24/7, except for when you eat, drink, brush, and floss. That way, they’re exerting pressure on your teeth constantly, which allows you to have the shortest possible treatment time.

What happens if I don’t wear my aligners?

If you neglect to wear your aligners, your teeth will start to shift back to their former position. Your course of treatment will then be lengthened, as you will have to wear aligners for longer to fix this backsliding.

Do I still need to brush and floss?

Absolutely! Your teeth still need the same amount of care as always. Invisalign is not a barrier against tooth decay and gum disease. Make sure to keep up your regular oral hygiene practices.

How long does Invisalign take?

That depends on the results that you’re looking for and how far your teeth are out of place when the treatment begins. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, and the average treatment time is about a year.
