When we care about our appearance, that means we also care about our smiles. If you have crooked, misaligned, or gapped teeth, it may affect your confidence and oral health. While braces are a common treatment option to address these dental issues, many people are against wearing metal braces to straighten their teeth- especially adults.

Fortunately, there is an alternative orthodontic treatment that provides the same results. Invisalign® offers a removable and much more comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces. Treatment involves the careful adjustment of tray size and shape over a period of months to years. The trays are virtually invisible, so you can benefit discreetly from advanced orthodontic treatment.

What does this mean for you?

Invisalign Works with Your Lifestyle

Not Against It

Invisalign Tray

Invisalign treatment is personalized to your needs and smile- Which means the trays are designed to fit comfortably.

Metal Brackets & Wires

Invisalign is made of a strong, clear plastic material, so you never have to worry about metal brackets, wires, or sharp appliances harming the soft tissue in your mouth.


Invisalign allows you to keep your teeth clean. Since the trays are removable, you can brush and floss normally, and continue to enjoy all your favorite sticky, crunchy foods during treatment.

According to Invisalign

Am I Eligible for Invisalign?

For Invisalign If:

You May Be a Good Candidate


Discretion is Preferred

Invisalign is a great way to get the same results we see from traditional orthodontic treatment, without wearing noticeable metal braces.


Committed Mindset

Invisalign aligners must be worn for 20-22 hours each day.


Minor Flaws

Invisalign is great for addressing minor cases of malocclusion, bite misalignment, gapping, tooth rotation, etc.

Examples of Cases

Some Types of Cases Invisalign Can Treat



When the bottom row of teeth stick out past the upper row.



The bottom and top rows of teeth are horizontally misaligned. This may cause jaw pain, TMJ, uneven tooth wear, and other symptoms.



When the upper teeth stick out too far past the bottom row. This may increase the risk of chipping your front teeth.

Gapped Teeth

Gapped Teeth

Gapped teeth can affect your self confidence, and make it difficult to eat and speak correctly.

Open Bite

Open Bite

An open bite is when the top and bottom rows of teeth do not line up properly when the jaw is shut, which can lead to problems speaking and/or chewing.

Crowded Teeth

Crowded Teeth

Crowded teeth can lead to cavities, make flossing and brushing difficult, and cause uneven tooth wear.

The Cost

Invisalign VS Braces

Invisalign treatment can cost approximately the same as what you would pay for traditional braces. However, it can be more expensive depending on your needs and goals. Invisalign will also typically cost more than other types of clear aligners, such as ClearCorrect®.

Invisalign Starting Treatment

Starting Treatment

You can start treatment as soon as you have your aligners. Invisalign needs to be worn for 20 to 22 hours every day in order to produce the desired results. Additionally, about every two weeks those trays will be switched out for the next set in the treatment plan.

Invisalign Check-Ups

Frequent Exams

You will need to visit your dentist every four to six weeks for check-ups and treatment monitoring.

Invisalign Final Results

The Results

It takes about 12-18 months for most patients to achieve their desired results. Results can be maintained by continuing to wear your final set of aligners, or a custom retainer, after completing treatment.

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

Straighter Teeth Equals Improved Oral Health & General Wellbeing

Invisalign is designed to give patients a flexible, comfortable way to achieve a straighter smile, but it does much more than that.

After treatment, patients not only feel more confident in their smiles, they also usually find it easier to brush and floss, and suffer less from malocclusion symptoms, such as bite misalignment, headaches, jaw pain, excessive tooth wear, and more.
