Alternative To Metal Braces
There are alternatives to having metal braces. Clear aligners such as Invisalign are an effective choice. It doesn’t use metal wires or brackets to align your teeth. Clear aligners are convenient, comfortable, and nearly invisible—an easier and less noticeable reason for a beautiful smile. With clear aligners, your teeth can be aligned using a series of clear, custom, and removable aligners. Clear aligners move your teeth tiny increments at a time until you achieve a straight and beautiful smile.

What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, comfortable, and removable aligners that remain invisible so that nobody can tell you’re wearing them, so you can smile during treatment as well as after. The treatment is made with modern computer imaging technology and has been proven very effective in aligning your teeth all the while going unnoticeable to the people in your life.
Why Should I Get Invisalign Treatment?
Invisalign clear teeth aligners are not only invisible, they are removable as well, so you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. Also, brushing and flossing aren’t a problem. Clear aligners are also comfortable, with no metal to cause cuts, sores, and abrasions during treatment. With no metal and wires, you’ll also enjoy the benefit of spending less time in the doctor’s office getting adjustments. Another benefit is that it allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look after your treatment is completed.
How Does Invisalign Work?
You’ll wear each set of clear aligners for approximately two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will shift week by week until they have straightened to the final position for a beautiful smile. You’ll also visit our practice about once every six weeks to ensure that the treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts 9 to 15 months, and the number of clear aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but treatment time varies from case to case.
