What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a great choice for patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for straightening their smile. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your teeth.
How does Invisalign® work?
Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you change sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will gradually and gently move into their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.

Uses of Invisalign®
In general, Invisalign can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our dentist may recommend Invisalign to correct:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite
Advantages of Invisalign®
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign aligners are also very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily take them out to eat, brush, and floss. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about Invisalign.
