Imagine having a beautifully straight smile without the restrictions or difficulties of brackets and wires obstructing your pearly whites. A smile that you and everyone else would enjoy looking at, literally brightening up the day. That perfect smile is what Invisalign® gives you and why it is one of dentistry’s most popular treatment options.
Unless you tell them, no one will know when you are wearing Invisalign aligners because of how clear they are, making them virtually invisible. Hence, you can enjoy straightening your teeth without getting glances or looks you would usually get if you were wearing metal braces.
Your Invisalign® treatment does not stop you from eating your favorite meals, even on cheat days. You can eat and drink anything you want with these removable invisible braces. Simply remove the clear aligners before you eat and replace them when finished.
While traditional wire braces may restrict you from engaging in some activities, Invisalign® aligners do not limit your activities in any way. Because these aligners are removable, you can enjoy your usual activities while maintaining peak oral health.
When getting Invisalign® treatment, each aligner is custom-designed to fit perfectly over your teeth as it puts subtle pressure on the teeth to move them into place. These invisible braces have no wires and brackets that can cause bleeding and discomfort and are so comfortable that you may forget you are wearing them.
You do not need any special brushing while using Invisalign® aligners. All you have to do is remove the aligners, perform your regular oral hygiene routine and put the aligners back in place.

Getting started on your Invisalign® treatment is easy. We’ll walk you through the steps of getting your perfect smile.
It’s simple and free to see if Invisalign® will work for you. Our team will assess your oral health during your consultation and analyze whether Invisalign® is the best treatment solution for your specific situation.
The road to your brilliantly straight smile begins with a personalized treatment plan. We will take detailed images and impressions of your teeth to determine your Invisalign® pathway. Your plan will detail the length of treatment, the expected results and financial arrangements for care. The estimated timeline for your transformation involves many factors, but adults can typically expect about a year and teenagers around eighteen months.
Once everything is settled, and your new aligners are ready, we will walk you through the simple process of wearing them. Invisalign® clear aligners are made of BPA-free smooth plastic and are custom-designed for your teeth. So you can fully expect them to fit nicely and be comfortable as you wear them for about 20 to 22 hours a day. Remember, you can remove them to eat, drink or engage in activities where removal is helpful.
As each Invisalign® aligner gently moves your teeth into position, you will need to switch to a new next-step aligner every two weeks. Each aligner is crafted precisely to build upon the previous aligner to shift your teeth about 1/10mm per tray. As you switch to new clear aligners, you will see your teeth move closer to their final destination. Our team will see you regularly throughout your treatment to ensure everything is proceeding according to schedule.
When your Invisalign® treatment is complete, you’ll be flashing your new confident smile for the world to see. We recommend wearing a follow-up retainer for a while for some patients to ensure that their splendid dazzling smile remains aligned.

The perks of having a beautiful straight smile include:
Studies show that a gorgeous smile increases self-esteem, confidence and overall appearance. Not surprisingly, research also reveals that it may lead to greater professional opportunities and higher income levels.
Straightened teeth lead to better lifetime oral health. They are easier to clean and less prone to chipping and decay. Straighter teeth also reduce the likelihood of gingivitis and gum disease.
