Invisalign Orthodontics

Overview

The Invisalign system is a revolutionary new alternative to traditional braces. Offering comfort, convenience and virtual invisibility during treatment, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, custom molded aligners to slowly move the teeth to their desired position.

The Invisalign system is used to successfully treat a wide variety of conditions including crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, overbites, underbites and cross bites. Since the aligners are practically invisible, the embarrassment that comes with metal braces is eliminated. Because they are removable, you can take them out to eat, brush and floss thereby allowing you to maintain your oral health much easier. Although treatment time varies considerably depending upon how much movement is necessary to achieve the desired results, Invisalign aligners can often reposition teeth in about a year or less.

Patient Maintenance

Remove aligners for eating, brushing and flossing. Aligners are maintained by brushing thoroughly with a normal toothbrush and toothpaste.  Patients must be committed to wearing invisalign retainers at night for as long as they want to keep their teeth straight.

Results of Treatment
