Invisalign® is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable aligners (retainers) to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. Invisalign® has been proven effective in clinical research and in over 100,000 patients nationwide.
You may be surprised to know that the benefits of having properly aligned teeth extend far beyond a confident smile. According to the American Dental Association, straightening your teeth can significantly affect your overall dental health. Think about it — a smile can hardly be perfect if it's not a healthy one. Fortunately, with Invisalign®, having a confident smile and reducing your risk for tooth decay and gum disease go hand in
While the results may appear the same—a confident, beautiful smile—when you stop and actually compare Invisalign® to other teeth-straightening options, the advantages become quite apparent. Knowing the pros and cons of each option ahead of time will help you make a more confident decision. Braces require brackets and wires that can poke your mouth. Brushing and flossing requires more effort, and there many food restrictions. In comparison, Invisalign uses smooth, comfortable plastic aligners. They are removable for easy cleaning, and you can eat whatever you want.
Watch this transformation from one of our patients, showing the gradual movement of her upper and lower teeth over her 6 month Invisalign treatment:
Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth.
Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.
When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your doctor.
Only Invisalign clear aligners are made of proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material to gently shift your teeth into place.
