The Invisalign System is a virtually invisible way to Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear. There is no metal which can cause mouth abrasions. Also, no metal and wires means less time in the doctor’s office getting adjustments.

Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit us about once every eight weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time varies from case to case depending on your specific need.

At the start of your treatment, we will use advanced 3-D computer imaging technology which will depict your complete orthodontic plan. You can view your virtual results before you start your treatment, so that you can preview how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete. A series of clear, custom aligners are then made for you that are designed to move your teeth (based on their initial position) little by little until the final desired position is achieved.

The Invisalign System may be used for teens and adults depending on each individual need. For teens, it’s a great way to “wear braces” without having to deal with metal mouth. Teens can remove the trays easily for a special event whether it’s homecoming, yearbook pictures or a first date. Also, no need to worry about skipping the forbidden foods that traditional braces require. It’s ok to take out the trays to indulge in a snack with friends or special meal out.

Want to speed up treatment? The Acceledent device is the latest technology designed to significantly shorten treatment time. There is an additional fee to obtain Acceledent. Ask the doctor about it and begin using Acceledent at the onset of treatment.
