Enjoy Nearly Invisible Straightening With Invisalign

If you’ve been resisting orthodontic treatment because you didn’t want to wear braces, you’ll be glad to know you can straighten your teeth without metal brackets and wires. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to move teeth into their proper positions.

Unlike braces, Invisalign is:

  • Nearly Invisible – Since Invisalign aligners are made of transparent plastic, most people won’t even realize you’re wearing them.
  • Convenient – Your aligners are removable, which means you can take them out for meals and oral hygiene. You can eat anything you’d like, with no worries about damaging braces. Plus, it’s easier to brush and floss without maneuvering around wires and brackets.
  • Hassle-Free – You simply wear each aligner set about two weeks before moving on to the next set in the series. While you’ll visit us for periodic checkups, they’ll be less frequent than appointments for braces. Plus, you won’t need uncomfortable adjustments.

Using Invisalign’s digital technology, we can give you a preview of what your new smile will look like before your treatment even begins!

Some Smiles Need Treatment With Braces

While Invisalign is an option for many smiles, certain orthodontic issues are better treated with braces. Our dentists will advise you on your options, but typically if you have a severely misaligned bite or need to have canine or premolar teeth rotated, we may recommend braces. In addition, since braces aren’t removed until the conclusion of your treatment, they are a better choice for those who lack the self-discipline to wear Invisalign aligners for the recommended 22 hours a day.

Whether you choose Invisalign or braces, it’s important to follow our recommended schedule for dental exams.

Common Questions About Orthodontics

Why are orthodontics important?

Most people are interested in orthodontics because of their ability to straighten crooked teeth and give a person a much more attractive smile. However, orthodontics can also help correct bite alignment issues that could cause jaw pain, headaches, and damage to your teeth. That’s why having teeth that are perfectly aligned is so important.

How much do orthodontics cost?

Each patient is unique, with individual needs and wants. Therefore, it’s difficult to put a price on your orthodontic care until we’ve had the chance to perform an oral examination and take a set of digital X-rays. After we have worked up a treatment plan, we can give you an accurate estimate of your orthodontic treatment cost.

How long do orthodontics take?

The answer depends on your individual situation and what type of orthodontic care you choose. Traditional metal braces usually take two to three years to complete their job. Invisalign uses clear teeth aligners to straighten teeth, and many of our Invisalign patients finish their treatment in as few as 12 months. After your exam, we can give you a better idea of the time investment involved.
