Are you one of the (far too many) adults who live with a smile that’s crooked, misaligned, and that, frankly, embarasses you?

An Innovative Way to Correct Your Smile
Forget everything you think you know about braces: gawky, prominent on the teeth, uncomfortable with wires and sharp metal parts to poke and irritate your mouth. And let’s face it: there’s just no way to hide those shiny silver train tracks. Many adults just aren’t willing to put up with that for a straighter smile.
Now consider Invisalign. Created in the late 90s by two Stanford University students, this ingenious system takes an entirely new approach to straightening teeth.
The process involves no metal braces, but just a series of custom crafted clear plastic aligners that gently shift your teeth into position.
Your treatment will go something like this:
- If you are a candidate and decide to go ahead with clear aligner therapy, we will examine your mouth carefully and take precise digital impressions of your teeth.
- Your aligners will be custom crafted at a special lab.
- You will begin wearing the aligners daily, changing them out every few weeks.
So why should you choose clear aligners to straighten your smile?
Reason #1: They Are Invisible
For your therapy to be effective, you must wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours per day. But that’s no problem. They are clear, extremely thin, and so discreet on your teeth, most people will not even notice them.
Reason #2: They Are Removable
You remove your aligners to eat, so you can consume what you want. No cutting your food into little pieces and eliminating popcorn and other favorite treats from your diet. You do have to take care to clean your teeth after every meal, however, to prevent bacteria from building up in the aligner. Of course, that’s not a problem because oral hygiene is a cinch. You don’t have to worry about cleaning between pesky wires and brackets as you do with conventional braces.
Reason #3: They Are Comfortable to Wear
Your aligners are made of smooth, soft plastic, making them completely comfortable in your mouth. They contain no wires, no brackets, no hard metal at all to injure your sensitive soft tissues. And the pressure they exert is gentle. You won’t have to visit us for uncomfortable tightening.
Reason #4: Invisalign Therapy Is Fast
Treatment time will vary from person to person, but treatment with clear plastic aligners is generally much faster than with conventional braces.
