These days, modern advancements in dentistry have given patients more options than ever for straightening their teeth. One of the most popular ways is Invisalign®clear aligner therapy. This orthodontic treatment has helped more than 3 million patients around the world get their picture-perfect smile.
How Invisalign Works
We use 3D imaging to create a customized plan to get your teeth to their desired positions. With these virtual simulations, we can actually show you what your end result will look like before we even begin!
We use the images we take to make sets of clear aligners that fit on your teeth like a mouthguard. Every two weeks, you will change to a new “tray” that moves and straightens your teeth as the process continues. Each tray must stay in the mouth for 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results possible.
You will need to visit the office every 4 to 6 weeks so that we can ensure that your teeth are shifting properly, and so we can give you the next few sets of aligners. Treatment time varies depending on your unique case, but typical lengths range from 9 to 18 months.
What Invisalign Can Fix
Invisalign can fix many different dental issues in both teenagers and adults:
If you would like to take a preliminary assessment to help you decide on whether or not to try Invisalign, you can take the Invisalign Smile Assessment.
Before beginning any treatment, you will need to schedule an initial consultation with one of our dentists so we can determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign.
Additional Benefits of Invisalign

Besides their subtle appearance, Invisalign trays are also completely removable, so it’s easy to eat and drink all the foods you love throughout your treatment process. You can even brush and floss like normal.
