Are you tired of having crooked, gapped, or overlapping teeth? Luckily, there are many orthodontic treatments available, including Invisalign® clear aligner therapy. This revolutionary cosmetic treatment can discreetly straighten your teeth, boost your self-confidence, and improve your oral health!

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic service that uses clear, removable aligner trays to straighten teeth. A series of smooth, plastic aligners are created based on an advanced 3D scan of your teeth. Patients wear each set of trays for about two weeks before moving to a new pair of aligners in the next stage of their treatment plan.

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign is a popular treatment option because it provides a wide array of benefits for patients. For example:

  • Comfortable Plastic – The smooth aligners are very comfortable for patients to wear because they don’t have brackets or wires that could irritate the inside of your lips and cheeks.
  • Fewer Dental Visits – Dentists will send patients home with multiple sets of aligners at a time so you will have fewer dental appointments compared to braces.
  • Nearly Invisible Trays – The trays are transparent so they aren’t as noticeable as traditional metal braces.
  • Less Food Restrictions – Patients take their Invisalign aligners out when they eat or drink anything other than water so their diet can be more varied.
  • Simple Oral Hygiene – Invisalign aligners are removed when brushing and flossing your teeth, which makes your oral hygiene routine much easier compared to braces!

Who Qualifies for Invisalign?

Invisalign is a good option for patients with mild to moderate misalignment, including the following issues:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite

Clear aligners are usually not the best option for patients with complex orthodontic cases, significant jaw realignment needs, or severely rotated teeth.
