Invisalign – Your Clear Alternative to Braces

Straight Teeth for a Perfect Smile

Achieving straight teeth is key to a healthy, confident smile. If you struggle with crooked teeth, gaps, or bite issues, Invisalign clear aligners offer a discreet alternative to traditional braces. With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without feeling self-conscious.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a cutting-edge orthodontic treatment that offers a convenient and virtually invisible way to straighten teeth and correct certain bite problems. This advanced system uses a series of custom-made aligners to gradually and safely move your teeth into the desired position. Made from durable SmartTrack material, these aligners are free of gluten, latex, and BPA.

Why Choose Invisalign Over Other Clear Aligners?

Since its introduction by Align Technology in 1998, Invisalign has set the gold standard for clear aligner treatments. It remains the most well-known and trusted brand, supported by years of innovation and success. Unlike newer, less supervised alternatives, Invisalign offers professional oversight by a trained Invisalign provider, ensuring you receive the best possible care and results.

Invisalign Consultation

How Invisalign Aligners Work

During your initial consultation, we'll review your dental history, conduct an oral examination, and use the iTero Element scanner to create a 3D digital model of your teeth. This scan helps us design a personalized treatment plan, specifying the number of aligners you’ll need and how long you'll wear each set. We'll also determine if any clear attachments are needed to enhance the effectiveness of your aligners.

For optimal results, it's crucial to wear your aligners as prescribed, removing them only for eating, brushing, and flossing. Regular check-ups will allow us to monitor your progress and ensure your treatment stays on track. While you may experience some discomfort when switching to a new set of aligners, most patients find Invisalign more comfortable than traditional braces.

How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?

Invisalign treatment duration varies based on your specific needs, typically ranging from six to 12 months. Simple cases may be completed in as little as six months, while more complex issues may require additional time. During your consultation, we’ll provide an estimate of your treatment length and discuss what to expect. 

Dental Issues Addressed by Invisalign

Invisalign can effectively treat a range of dental problems, including:

Crooked Teeth

Overlapping Teeth

Croweded Teeth

Gaps Between Teeth

Mild to moderate bite misalignments

Female white toothy smile

Is Invisalign Permanent?

Yes, Invisalign can permanently straighten your teeth, but maintaining your new smile requires wearing retainers. After completing your treatment, you’ll need to wear your final set of aligners or invest in Vivera retainers to keep your teeth in place. Like traditional braces, a retention period of one to two years is essential, followed by occasional wear to maintain results.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

Both Invisalign and traditional braces can deliver excellent results, but Invisalign offers several distinct advantages:

  • Nearly invisible, custom-made aligners

  • No dietary restrictions—remove aligners to eat

  • Easier oral hygiene without wires and brackets

  • Fewer emergencies related to broken wires or brackets

Addressing Complext Orthodontics Issues

Wile Invisalign is highly effective for many patients, severe bite issues or significant jaw problems may require traditional braces. We'll evaluate your specific needs and recommend the best treatment option for you.c

Cost of Invisalign

The cost of Invisalign is comparable to traditional braces, and many dental insurance plans cover part of the expense. Our team will help you explore payment options to fit your budget. Contact us for more information and to schedule your consultation.
