A Straighter Smile – It’s Never Been So Easy

A straighter smile is not only important for looking better; it makes a difference in how you feel and how your teeth work too. That’s why we offer Invisalign® invisible braces.

Crooked, misaligned teeth can not only affect your looks but also your health and comfort. Misaligned teeth can cause headaches and jaw pain, and when teeth are crooked, plaque build-up can increase, leading to gum disease.

Invisalign straightens your teeth, without using metal brackets and wires. Instead we use a series of clear, custom-fitting, removable devices called aligners. Not only are Invisalign aligners more comfortable and attractive, they also allow you to clean your teeth better than with traditional braces.

In addition to using precise models of the mouth mounted on three dimensional jaw movement simulators, we will also use 3-D computer technology to create custom clear dental aligners that fit around your teeth. You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move, gradually, each week, until they move into the final prescribed alignment. Total treatment time averages 9 to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn is between 18 and 30, but this varies by case. Toward the end of the treatment we will re-evaluate the progress and take specialized steps to make sure we get superior results. Once the treatment is finished you’ll be smiling with confidence.
