Did you know you can conveniently straighten your teeth without the wires and brackets associated with traditional braces?
From less invasive treatments and fewer dental visits to an overall more comfortable look and feel, the benefits of Invisalign are plentiful. If you’re ready for a straighter and healthier smile, keep reading to learn more about the benefits of Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a type of treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. The aligners are custom-made for each patient using advanced 3D imaging technology and are designed to gradually shift the teeth into the desired position.
Invisalign aligners are made of a clear, smooth plastic material that is virtually invisible when worn, making them a popular choice for people who want to straighten their teeth without the noticeable appearance of traditional metal braces. The aligners are also removable, which allows for easier brushing and flossing of teeth and allows the patient to eat and drink as usual without any dietary restrictions.
The Invisalign treatment process begins with a consultation with one of our highly experienced dentists, who will evaluate the patient's teeth and determine if Invisalign is the best treatment option. If it is, we will take impressions of the teeth and use 3D imaging to create a customized treatment plan that outlines the movement of the teeth throughout the treatment.
Once the treatment plan is approved, we will provide the patient with a series of aligners that will be worn for about two weeks each. The patient will switch to a new set of aligners at regular intervals as directed by our dentists until the desired results are achieved.
Invisalign treatment typically lasts about 12-18 months, depending on the severity of the patient's dental issues. It is important for patients to wear the aligners as directed and to attend regular check-ups with their orthodontist to ensure that the treatment is progressing as planned.

- Aesthetic appeal: Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually invisible, making them a popular choice for people who want to straighten their teeth without the noticeable appearance of traditional metal braces.
- Comfort: The aligners are custom-made for each patient using smooth, comfortable plastic, making them less likely to cause irritation or discomfort in the mouth.
- Convenience: Invisalign aligners are removable, which allows for easier brushing and flossing of teeth and allows the patient to eat and drink as usual without any dietary restrictions.
- Better oral hygiene: With Invisalign, patients can brush and floss their teeth as usual, which promotes better oral hygiene and reduces the risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
- Predictable results: The 3D imaging technology used in the Invisalign process allows for a detailed and accurate treatment plan, which can help to ensure more predictable results.
- Reduced treatment time: In some cases, Invisalign treatment can be faster than traditional braces, with treatment times ranging from 6-18 months, depending on the patient's individual needs.
- Fewer office visits: With Invisalign, patients typically require fewer office visits than with traditional braces, as the aligners are replaced every two weeks and adjustments are made remotely.
