What is Invisalign?
The Invisalign system offers a non-intrusive method to shift teeth to their proper position. You can achieve the smile you desire without people knowing.
The procedure uses 3D computer imaging technology that lets us map out a complete treatment plan while you're in the dental chair, all in a single visit.
We show you the initial position of your teeth down to the final position. We customize a series of virtually-invisible aligners for your teeth to move and straighten them out little by little.
Wear each aligner for about one to two weeks before moving to the next aligner in the series. We do this until we reach the final position of your teeth.
We create an individualized treatment plan based on your specific needs. Every set of Invisalign aligners is unique as it's made for its user.
What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?
Who is a good candidate for Invisalign aligners?
Invisalign can address various issues, including protruding and crowded teeth. Anyone can be a good candidate. But the procedure is usually recommended to older teens and adults. You may consider Invisalign if you want a tooth straightening option that doesn't affect your eating habits and daily activities.
What age can you get Invisalign?
The average is around 12-13 years old, but even younger children can start the treatment. It depends on the child's ability to commit and follow instructions. You must wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours per day for the treatment's success. Your dentist can assess whether your child is ready for Invisalign.
How many aligner trays do you typically get during Invisalign treatment?
You receive around 20-30 aligners to get to your desired final teeth position. The milder the case, the fewer aligners you need to wear. The more complex the issue, the more aligners you'll require.
How do I clean Invisalign aligner trays?
Cleaning your Invisalign aligner trays is necessary to keep plaque and deposits from building up. Rinse them once in a while with plain water or soak them in warm water or a cleaning solution your dentist prescribed. You can also brush them using a soft-bristled toothbrush. Rinse and put them back on afterward or store them in a protective case.

For many years the only viable corrective procedure available to realign crooked teeth has been conventional wire and metal braces or retainers. Although these options are demonstrably effective at correcting your misaligned teeth, they, unfortunately, come with certain downsides. For one, metal braces can be physically uncomfortable as they do not conform to your teeth. This creates a number of edges that can catch on to your cheeks or lips, potentially causing injury or discomfort.
