Experience the Comfort & Convenience of Removable Aligners

You certainly aren’t alone if you are interested in orthodontic treatment as an adult. Countless people missed out on the chance when they were younger. Many others didn’t consistently wear their retainer, resulting in the need for treatment again in the future. Invisalign is one of the most popular solutions for adult orthodontic patients. It uses a series of customized clear aligners to gradually shift your teeth into their proper positions. It can often minimize problems with your TMJs as well as give you a healthier bite.

Here are the benefits you gain from this discreet option:

  • Virtually Invisible – Clear, smooth Invisalign aligners will blend in with your smile. They’ll straighten your teeth without drawing unwanted attention to your treatment.
  • Easily Removable – You can take off your aligners to eat, brush your teeth, and floss. You’ll maintain your regular routines and habits with these removable aligners.
  • Comfortable to Wear – The inside of your mouth won’t be irritated by the aligners, which are made of a smooth, BPA-free plastic. You’ll just feel a gentle pressure as they shift your teeth into place.
  • Fewer Office Visits – Invisalign requires fewer office visits compared to traditional braces. It’s a more convenient treatment experience that fits in with your lifestyle.

To begin your journey to straight teeth, your dentist will take digital X-rays of your mouth to determine if Invisalign treatment is right for you. If it is, we’ll capture impressions using digital scanning technology. This information will be used to create your customized set of clear aligners. Here is how it works:

  • You’ll wear each set of aligners for about 22 hours per day.
  • The aligners will gently move your teeth closer to their ideal alignment.
  • You’ll switch to a new set of aligners every two weeks or so.
  • As you move through the aligners, you’ll notice your teeth shifting into a more aligned smile.
  • You’ll need to visit our office every six weeks or so for progress checkups.
  • You can expect to finish treatment in about 12 to 18 months, depending on your unique orthodontic needs.
  • Once your treatment is over, you’ll receive a custom retainer to ensure your results last.

Once you’ve completed Invisalign treatment, you may be interested in some of our other cosmetic treatments, like teeth whitening, Bioclear, or gummy smile treatment.
