Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Braces are one of the most common–and visible–dental treatments today. Millions of patients are currently wearing braces to improve the health and appearance of their smile. But while they are certainly proven effective, many patients have concerns about the effect braces have on their appearance while receiving treatment.
That’s where Invisalign comes in. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to achieve the same results as braces, without a mouth full of metal. That means you can accomplish your smile goals without impacting your professional appearance or active lifestyle.
How It Works
Invisalign operates under the same general orthodontic principles as traditional braces. By applying gentle, consistent force, teeth are gradually moved into more ideal positions. But whereas braces use a system of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of custom-made plastic trays. Each discreet tray moves you closer to your goal, culminating in a beautiful new smile.
The other major difference between Invisalign and traditional braces is that your aligners are easily removable. That means you can continue to enjoy all of your favorite foods, and brushing and flossing are as easy as ever! You can also remove them for special events, from prom to musical performances and sports games.
During your initial consultation, our team will take precise measurements and scans of your mouth. These will be used to create your series of custom aligners. You will receive a new set every couple of weeks, and will only need to check in with us periodically so we can make sure your treatment is progressing as planned. You’ll be done before you know it! In fact, Invisalign treatment typically takes only 9 to 15 months to complete.
