The perfect orthodontic treatment for anyone looking to straighten their teeth discreetly, the Invisalign® system is comprised of a series of almost invisible, customized aligner trays that gradually adjust your teeth while also allowing you to diligently care for your oral health.

How does the Invisalign system work?

Unlike traditional braces, non-invasive Invisalign aligners straighten teeth and correct bite issues using comfortable, removable clear plastic trays that are created with 3D digital scans. Each aligner is worn approximately 22 hours a day, for an average of one to two weeks, being removed only for meals and when brushing and flossing teeth. Aligners should also be brushed and rinsed after eating to remove any food particles or bacteria buildup, and they need to be updated as directed by your dentist.

Is Invisalign treatment time lengthier than the treatment time for traditional braces?

Not necessarily. In instances where teeth require mild straightening, Invisalign aligners can finish the job in as little as six months. Complex adjustments will require additional treatment time and may be more in line with what you may experience with traditional braces.

Is there a significant cost different between Invisalign and traditional braces?

You may have heard that the convenience and aesthetic benefits Invisalign offers translates into a higher overall cost, but this isn’t always the case. Depending on your unique needs, the cost of Invisalign aligners can be similar to that of conventional braces.
