Do you or your teen suffer from mildly crooked teeth? Invisalign short-term orthodontics might be the answer for you. If you have crooked teeth or a mild bite problem, but no other major orthodontic issues, Invisalign braces can help you achieve a straight, beautiful smile with less hassle and less discomfort than traditional braces.
What is Invisalign? For many people, Invisalign provides the easiest and least invasive solution for teeth straightening. Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible and require little change to your lifestyle, little to no discomfort, and won’t stop you eating any of your favorite foods. Patients who use Invisalign are astounded at the results while having none of the normal complaints about braces: no discomfort due to sharp-edged brackets or wires and no unsightly metal to muck up your smile.

How does Invisalign work?
We take X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth, which Invisalign uses to create digital 3D images. Using these images, we map out your treatment plan to gradually move your teeth into position through a series of smooth, plastic overlay trays called aligners.
There are no wires or metal brackets. You simply pop in a new set of aligners every two weeks until your teeth have moved into the final position. Every six weeks, you will need to come in for a checkup. Invisalign can work in as little as 12 months, but often takes about the same treatment time as conventional braces.
Will Invisalign work for me?
Invisalign is a great solution for many people. It can treat overcrowding, gaps, crossbite, overbites, and underbites. If you have any of these problems, Invisalign braces might be perfect for you.
However, Invisalign is not for everyone. Patients with severe bite problems or other larger orthodontic issues are not good candidates for Invisalign. We offer many other orthodontic solutions (such as Fastbraces®), and we can find one that will fit your needs. However, if you have only mild malocclusion (your teeth do not fit together properly), Invisalign may be the perfect solution and your ticket to a happier, more beautiful smile.
