Our office is proud to be a provider of the Invisalign system. Invisalign offers orthodontic treatment to correct a wide range of problems, including crooked teeth, gaps between your teeth, overcrowding, and bite problems.

Invisalign offers you a way to straighten your teeth without the unsightly and uncomfortable brackets and wires involved in traditional braces. The Invisalign aligners are comfortable, clear plastic trays custom made to fit your teeth. The clear plastic trays are practically invisible when they're in place, allowing you to correct your teeth without anyone knowing you're undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Every few weeks, you switch to the next set of aligners in the series, gradually adjusting your teeth into the right position through small changes in the fit of each set of aligners. The gentle, gradual adjustments will help your teeth and gums grow accustomed to the new positions, helping to keep overall treatment times down.

Other benefits of Invisalign include:

  • Gentle tooth adjustments that lead to less pain during your orthodontic treatment
  • Removable aligners, which don't limit what you can eat while using Invisalign
  • No need to perform adjustments, meaning fewer visits and quicker dental appointments during treatment

If you are interested in finding out if you are a good candidate for the Invisalign system, call our office today and schedule a consultation exam.
