Invisalign Overview

The way people straighten their teeth is changing. Invisalign is a less visible and more convenient approach than ever before.

Correcting misalignment issues

People can suffer from one or more of several misalignment issues. Gapped or crowded teeth, an underbite, overbite or crossbite; all can create pain and gum disease, as well as aesthetic concerns. Methods have of course been in place for many years that address misalignment, but these bring their own problems.

Gently moving your teeth into position

Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner approximately every two weeks, your teeth will move, little by little, week by week. Gradually they move towards the projected final position.

A discreet approach to realignment

Wearing traditional braces, brackets and wires can be just as embarrassing as living with misaligned teeth. But Invisalign offers a more satisfactory alternative. With Invisalign, you wear discreet custom-made aligners that people might not notice you’re wearing. What’s more, they can be easily removed for eating and brushing.

Comfortable and easy to maintain

Invisalign aligners can be taken off to eat, and they are repositioned after brushing your teeth. You can even remove them altogether for short periods, such as special occasions like a wedding or important meeting. Because there are no metal or sharp edges, they are also generally more comfortable to wear than traditional braces.
