The invisible way to straighten your teeth, without braces
Invisalign® uses a series of clear removable aligners (pictured to the left) to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position determined at diagnosis time with 3-D computer imaging technology.
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
We are certified to treat patients with Invisalign®. The method is useful for a variety of conditions, including spacing, crowding, and complex restorative cases where tooth movement is necessary. Call the office if you are interested in learning more about Invisalign®, and to see if it is right for you.
