Forget everything you’ve heard about teeth straightening.
Because a proven technology now exists that lets you
straighten your teeth- invisibly.
Invisalign makes it easy to straighten your teeth
without bands, brackets, or wires.
A Clear Alternative
Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution so you can smile during as well as after treatment. In fact, virtually no one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every two weeks and your teeth will move – little by little – toward the smile you have always wanted.
Invisible, Removable, and Comfortable
Invisalign is comfortable to wear and it doesn’t require you to change your busy lifestyle. You visit your doctor every month or two to check your progression and get new aligners. Average treatment time is only about a year. Because aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favorite foods while brushing and flossing normally to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Straighter teeth can lead to:
Properly positioned teeth are easier to brush and floss than teeth that are crowded, crooked, or spaced too far apart. Properly aligned teeth can help gums “fit” tighter around them, which may lead to better periodontal health.
With maintenance of good oral hygiene, the chances of having plaque retention, tooth decay, and periodontal (gum) disease can be reduced.
Improved chewing and speech
In some instances, speech problems may result from poorly positioned teeth and jaws. Correction of the bite can help improve chewing and speech.
Decreased risk of dental trauma and abnormal wear
Properly aligned teeth are less stressful on the supporting bone and jaw joints
More Beautiful Smiles
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign will make you feel less self-conscious and more confident.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does Invisalign really work?
A: Yes. In orthodontic and dental practices worldwide, Invisalign has been effective at straightening teeth. Nine out of ten patients are “very or extremely satisfied” with their Invisalign experience.
Q: How does Invisalign work?
A: Invisalign uses 3-D computer imaging technology to map the complete treatment from start to finish. From this plan, a series of custom-made aligners unique to your treatment is produced. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and gradually moves your teeth, before being replaced by the next in the series
until the final position is achieved.
Q: How much does Invisalign cost?
A: Only your doctor can determine the cost for your specific treatment. It depends on the kind of treatment you need, how long it takes, and even where you live. Invisalign treatment is often similar to the cost of traditional braces. In addition, if you have orthodontic insurance coverage, Invisalign is normally covered to the same extent as conventional braces. Many doctors also offer affordable monthly payment plans. Be sure to inquire about your options with your preferred provider.
