Straightening teeth is a definite consideration for people of any age. One in every five orthodontic patients is an adult. Those adults wanting to successfully improve their bite or crooked teeth can do so with today’s advanced technology of invisible or nearly invisible appliances, fitting into almost any lifestyle.
We offer only the latest braces available, including Invisalign® clear aligners. The Invisalign® system is comprised of a series of clear aligners that straighten teeth without the use of traditional braces. It is ideal for adult and teen patients who want to enhance their smile, but are concerned about the appearance of metal braces and Dr. is an “Elite Preferred” provider of Invisalign – one of only three in the state.
Invisalign® is the clear way to straighten teeth without braces, using aligners. Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing; and you can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth; and there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions.
Many of our patients had never considered traditional braces but are now happily and comfortably improving their smiles with Invisalign®.
WHAT IS Invisalign®?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

HOW DOES Invisalign® WORK?
You wear each set of aligners for about 2 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 — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position Dr. has prescribed. You’ll visit Dr. about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
