What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of customized, clear aligners to straighten you teeth. Thousands of orthodontists in the United States and Canada use Invisalign to accurately and effectively treat their patients. Invisalign aligners are:
- Virtually invisible – Invisalign aligners cannot be seen while you are wearing them! Friends, family members and co-workers may never even know you are in orthodontic treatment, unless of course you tell them!
- Comfortable to wear – The aligners are made from a special plastic that has smooth, rounded edges so they won’t irritate your mouth and tissues like traditional braces often can.
- Customized just for you – Your Invisalign aligners are customized to fit your mouth. Our digital intraoral scanner uses advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to replicate an exact impression of your mouth and teeth. Invisalign then customize fabricates a series of aligners to fit your teeth, over time moving them into their proper positions.
- Removable –Unlike traditional metal braces, you can remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush your teeth, floss and for special occasions. There’s no need to change your lifestyle with Invisalign!
- Effective – You will begin to notice a significant difference in your smile even before your treatment is complete!

How Does Invisalign Work?
When you begin your Invisalign treatment you will receive several sets of custom fit aligners. Each set of aligners is worn for only one week. Each week you can switch into your next set of aligners to continue straightening your teeth. Over time you will notice changes in the alignment of your teeth and in just a few months you will have a straighter, healthier smile!
