Invisalign…Invisible Braces

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. And they often evaluate you based on the attractiveness of your teeth. Thanks to Invisalign invisible braces, you can have a beautiful smile—even if you weren’t born with one.
Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that are custom-molded to fit you. These virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth within six months to one year into a smile you'll be proud to wear.

The amazing Invisalign system enhances your teeth without the discomfort, hassle and cumbersome equipment of traditional braces. Invisalign uses clear, plastic “aligners” to straighten the teeth without metal wires or brackets, so it is practically invisible. It’s the ideal way for almost anyone—from teens to adults—to improve their smile without anyone knowing.    

Invisalign uses a series of custom-molded retainers to gradually reposition and straighten the teeth into a beautiful smile. These fitted molds—which look like basic tooth-whitening trays—can be worn on the top and bottom to effectively improve teeth that are crooked, spaced out and overcrowded, as well as with overbites, underbites and cross bites. And the aligners are completely removable, so they don’t interfere with everyday activities like eating, brushing and flossing.

How Invisalign Works
The Invisalign system relies on innovative 3-D computer imaging technology. Here’s how it works: first, we take impressions of your mouth. We send these impressions to Invisalign Technologies, which uses the Invisalign computer imaging system to create a series of durable molds to use throughout your entire treatment plan. Right from the start you will know exactly what your teeth will look like once your invisible braces have finished correcting your smile.

You start by wearing the set of aligners that matches the current positioning of your teeth. Then you change aligners about every two weeks as your teeth gradually move. This process is repeated until your teeth are moved to the desired position. Most people go through between 18 and 30 aligner trays during their treatment plan, which takes six months to a year to complete.

Invisible Braces, a Popular Alternative
Invisalign was created by Align Technology Inc. more than a decade ago, and it is an increasingly popular alternative to conventional braces. Nearly 30,000 orthodontists and dentist worldwide are certified to use Invisalign; almost 250,000 patients have been treated with these invisible braces. With the outstanding benefits of Invisalign, it’s no wonder why. Invisalign is…
