Invisalign.

Invisalign is an orthodontic solution for both teens and adults. 

Instead of metal braces and a latticework of wires, Invisalign clear aligners are made of nearly invisible polyurethane plastic. 

Rather than being cemented to your teeth, the custom plastic inserts can be removed for eating, cleaning and important social occasions. Confidently straighten your smile with the clear alternative to braces.

Benefits of Invisalign

  • Discrete Appearance: Invisalign liners are made of a clear plastic. If metal braces seem too cumbersome or unappealing to you, Invisalign is the perfect alternative.
  • Increased Comfort: The soft plastic material doesn’t cut into your cheeks and gums like metal braces and wires can. If you are feeling discomfort, Invisalign can be removed temporarily.
  • No Dietary Limitations: Unlike braces, Invisalign doesn’t require you to change your diet. You can keep eating popcorn, apples and other crunchy foods.
  • Improved Hygiene: Because Invisalign can be removed, you will be able to efficiently clean your teeth and liners as needed. There is no chance of food getting stuck for long periods of time without your knowing.

How It WorksInvisalign teen.

Invisalign clear aligners are designed to work just like braces; carefully applying force over extended periods of time to move teeth into a better position. A special computer program helps create a unique plan for your teeth, which is broken down into several dozen stages. Each stage requires a separate set of aligners. Your aligners must be worn for a minimum of 20 hours per day to achieve the desired effect.

How to Clean Clear Aligners

During treatment the Invisalign liners can be completely removed. Continue to brush your teeth after every meal so food and plaque do not get trapped underneath the plastic! The aligners can be cleaned by brushing and rinsing them in warm water. By following your dentist’s instruction you can have a beautiful, straight smile in no time!
