Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It's virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you're straightening your teeth.
The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with the 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and customized to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. We also use an iTero scanner to show you a simulation of what your smile will look like after treatment. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you'll be smiling like you never have before!

Results with Invisalign
To ensure the best possible results, only an orthodontist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign. Invisalign is available to teen and adult patients. Only an orthodontist can determine if this treatment is an effective option for you.
Taking good care of your Invisalign aligners is important to avoid discoloration and bacteria. Rinse your aligner every time your remove it from your mouth, using the official Invisalign cleaner, Retainer Brite, or another cleaner specifically designed for aligners. Make sure to not brush your aligner with your regular toothpaste, as it can dull your aligner or cause bacteria to grow. A clear, antibacterial soap is a great and inexpensive way to clean your aligners. Lastly, make sure to always remove your aligner before eating or drinking (except for water).
