Straight teeth are healthy teeth. Invisalign is a fast, healthy, and flexible way to change your smile in as little as six months. Our doctors will customize a treatment plan for you to give you the best outcome. If you have slightly crooked teeth or gaps between your teeth, Invisalign may be for you.

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners that look similar to a clear occlusal guard or retainer to gently shift the position of your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for at least 22+ hours a day. Every few weeks, you will switch to a new set of aligners as you progress through your treatment. Invisalign has a number of benefits, most notably the nearly invisible aligners. Invisalign can also be removed to eat, brush, and floss. It is very important to care for and clean your aligners nightly in order to keep them clear. Drinking any beverage beside water while wearing your aligners can stain them (especially coffee!).
What to expect at your appointments
After a full examination, our doctors will preform an analysis of your smile. We will discuss your goals and what you like and dislike about your smile. An impression will then be made to send to our laboratory to fabricate your custom aligners. Our team will explain how to use your trays as well as add any necessary attachments to your teeth to help the movements.
