The Invisalign system uses a set of clear and comfortable aligners to align teeth.

Will Invisalign treatment fit my lifestyle?

Yes! Invisalign treatment is the least restrictive orthodontic treatment available. You will be able to eat and drink everything you love without fear of damaging your appliance because Invisalign aligners are removable! You will also be able to brush and floss your teeth with ease. You can even remove your aligners to enjoy a special night out. You will be able to enjoy your day-to-day activities without any major changes. Invisalign allows you to continue looking like yourself since they are virtually invisible. Your schedule won’t be saturated with adjustment appointments either, Invisalign requires only quick progress checks spaced out every 6 weeks.

What is the Invisalign system?

The Invisalign system consists of a set of clear, comfortable, and removable trays that straighten your teeth gently and effectively. Your Invisalign treatment is designed using 3D digital images of your teeth and mouth. Every step of your treatment is carefully crafted from beginning to end. You will even be able to preview your smile before treatment begins!

Once your treatment is planned, the series of clear aligners are manufactured to the specifications that your orthodontist determined. You wear each aligner for approximately one week before moving on to the next aligner in the set. With each aligner, your teeth shift a little bit closer to the desired position.

The length of your treatment will depend on your specific needs and the treatment plan your orthodontist designs.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign is a superior treatment option with many incomparable advantages. For starters, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and will fit perfectly into your lifestyle. For situations where your aligners may get in the way, you can simply remove them. This includes eating, drinking, flossing, and brushing.

The Invisalign system is free from metal brackets and wires. This means that you will go through treatment without the irritation and discomfort caused by metal parts. You will also spend less time going to adjustment appointments and more time living your life.

The best part of Invisalign is that it has proprietary technology that allows you to preview your digital results before ever wearing an aligner. You will know exactly how your teeth will look once your treatment is completed.
