Invisalign

Crooked teeth affect your appearance and oral health, but you may be hesitant to wear metal braces.

Invisalign® offers a comfortable and removable alternative to braces. Treatment is simple and the trays are virtually invisible during use.

What does this mean for you?

Invisalign Works with Your Lifestyle

Not Against It

Invisalign trays are customized to comfortably fit your smile. They are fabricated from a clear plastic material, so most people will never even notice that you’re wearing them.

Unlike metal brackets and wires, the snug fit and smooth edges will never rub, snag, or irritate the delicate soft tissues inside your mouth.

Since the trays are removable, Invisalign patients can brush and floss normally while continuing to enjoy all their favorite sticky, crunchy foods.

Let’s take a closer look at how Invisalign works...

Check-Ups

Final Results

Final Results

Most patients can achieve their desired end results in 12 to 18 months. You can maintain your results by wearing your last aligners or a custom retainer.

There is a noticeable difference between these two treatments...

A Straighter Smile

Can Benefit Your Oral and Overall Health

The goal of Invisalign is to help you achieve a straighter smile. But it does so much more.

After treatment, you may find that it is easier to brush and floss your teeth. By treating malocclusion, Invisalign can also reduce the symptoms of a misaligned bite such as headaches and excessive wear on your teeth. Best of all, you can even feel more confident in your smile and yourself when talking to others or smiling in photos.
