The Clear Alternative to Braces
Many adults or older teens would like to improve their smiles but hate the idea of traditional orthodontia. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that is a great alternative to metal braces. Unlike traditional braces, patients don’t have to endure painful, ugly metal wires or bands. Virtually invisible, the Invisalign system works through a series of custom aligners.
The Clear Choice
Invisalign uses a series of clear trays to shift teeth, patients avoid irritating brackets and the unsightly appearance of metal braces.

Invisalign Treatment Overview
During the first step, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth and digitized them. From these impressions, your doctor can create and manipulate a computerized image of the teeth. Using the 3-D model, the dentist will plan out the movement of the teeth. Custom aligners are then generated to fit your specific case. Every couple of weeks, patients change the aligners as directed by the dentist. The aligners gradually reposition the teeth little by little until you can enjoy a straight, attractive smile. The treatment usually lasts 6-18 months.
Invisalign is not a recommended treatment for young children.
