Yes, there’s a way to achieve a straighter smile, discreetly, without disrupting your daily routine. With Invisalign, you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of orthodontics in a clear, removable, comfortable and practical aligner. With Invisalign® straight teeth, increased confidence, and constant smiles are just months away!

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign® is an orthodontic system designed to straighten your teeth using clear and durable thermoplastic aligners. These dental aligners resemble tooth-whitening trays, except they are custom-fitted to guide your teeth into the proper positioning based on a virtual treatment plan created for your specific needs.

What Can Invisalign® Correct?

Invisalign® can correct a variety of mild to moderate alignment and occlusion (bite) concerns, which were only possible to resolve with traditional bracket-and-wire braces in the past, such as:

Crowded or overlapping teeth

Gaps or spaces between teeth

Overbite or underbite

Malocclusion (“poor bite”), where teeth do not meet correctly when the jaw is closed

In addition, the Invisalign® system can be utilized in more complex cases, including those involving jaw surgery and restorative dentistry, such as veneerscrowns, and dental implants.

Advantages of Invisalign® Treatment

Invisalign® is a revolutionary advancement in orthodontic treatment. Compared to traditional braces and orthodontics, Invisalign can offer several significant benefits:

Aligners are practically invisible

No uncomfortable tightening appointments

Aligners are removable, not cemented to the teeth

Invisalign® treatment plans are often shorter than traditional orthodontic treatment timelines

Dental health is easier to maintain with Invisalign – you can brush, floss, and receive regular dental cleanings without obstruction

No tooth enamel damage sometimes caused by cement

Enjoy the food and drinks you love without jeopardizing your treatment

Am I an Invisalign® Candidate?

More patients are now suitable for treatment with Invisalign® than ever before. A consultation appointment is necessary to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for Invisalign®. You may be surprised to find out that Invisalign® can resolve complex orthodontic concerns that go beyond straightening mild to moderate tooth misalignments. Today’s Invisalign® can treat crossbite, underbite, overbite, and other complex tooth alignment issues.

Good candidates for orthodontic correction with Invisalign® typically meet the following criteria:

Adult or teen with fully emerged permanent molars

Mild to moderate crowding, uneven spacing, misalignment, and/or bite problems

Committed to a treatment length between 6 – 18 months for adults (treatment lengths can vary based on the severity of the case)

Willing to wear aligners between 20-22 hours per day

Do not have bridges or dental implants in place
