What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic system that straightens teeth and corrects malocclusions with a series of clear plastic aligners. These aligners are modeled after your unique smile and are designed to exert a small and consistent amount of pressure that gradually push your teeth into proper alignment.

You wear your aligners all day, every day, only taking them out to brush, floss, and eat. You move on to the next set of aligners in your series every two weeks until you’ve reached your target alignment. You’ll have your dream smile in a matter of months, and nobody will ever know that you were getting orthodontic treatment!

Why should I straighten my smile?

There are many reasons to straighten your smile, both cosmetically and medically.

Medically speaking, having straight teeth and a properly aligned bite are advantageous to your overall oral health. Properly aligned smiles are easier to keep clean, which helps you protect your mouth from tooth decay and gum disease. A straight smile also evenly distributes the force in your bite, which prevents your teeth from unnecessary wear and tear and keeps you from developing jaw problems like TMJ disorder.

A straight smile is also more cosmetically pleasing. Your smile is your introduction to the world, and crooked teeth or a misaligned bite can set the wrong impression or make you feel less confident about yourself.

Why should I choose Invisalign over braces?

As an orthodontic system, Invisalign has a number of advantages over treatment with traditional metal braces, such as:

Comfort

Invisalign’s aligners are made of a smooth plastic that fits snugly around your teeth, so they won’t tear up the insides of your cheeks like metal braces do.

Convenience

Invisalign’s aligners are removable, unlike braces, so you don’t need to worry about getting food stuck in them or buy special tools to keep your teeth clean during treatment. Simply pop out your retainers, eat, brush, or floss as normal, and pop them right back in after.

Discretion

Invisalign’s aligners are clear and virtually invisible in your mouth, unlike the mouth full of metal that you have with braces. Nobody will know that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment unless you tell them.

Am I a candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign effectively treats most of the same conditions that are corrected with braces, such as:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open Bite

Many patients also choose to use Invisalign to just achieve generally straighter teeth.
