Forget everything you've heard about teeth straightening. Because now there's breakthrough technology that lets you get the smile you always wanted without bands, brackets or wires.
By using a series of clear removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every 2 weeks, your teeth will move-little by little, week by week-until they have moved to the final position. Comfortable to wear, our aligners are also removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss as usual.
The Invisalign system uses computer imaging to create the aligners - the computer simulates the stages the teeth will go through until they reach their final position. The InvisalignR trays are then created based on this simulation. While on, these clear plastic aligners function like invisible braces, using pressure to guide the teeth into proper alignment.
It is important to note that InvisalignR invisible braces can sometimes cost 20-50% more than regular orthodontic treatment.
Short Introducing Invisalign.
Invisalign can give you the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted. It works through a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing. So you can smile more during treatment as well as after.
What is Invisalign? Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces.
Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners (pictured to the left) to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
Invisalign has been proven effective in clinical research and in practices nationwide.
How Does Invisalign Work? You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position your doctor has prescribed.
You'll visit your doctor about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
How Are Aligners Made? You'd Be Amazed... The aligners are made through a combination of your doctor's expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.
