Invisalign The Invisible Way to Straighten Teeth

If you have a bad bite or crooked teeth, Invisalign can give you the smile you have always wanted. This orthodontic system uses removable, clear aligners to align your smile discreetly. The subtle nature of Invisalign means you can straighten your smile without others noticing. So you can smile more often during treatment and as well as after.

How does Invisalign work?

Traditional braces move your teeth by applying a constant force on your teeth using wire-connected metal brackets. Invisalign applies the same principle but uses a different approach. The system uses clear, plastic trays to move your teeth.

Invisalign trays are similar to a mouthguard — just sink them over your teeth, and they will do the job. However, unlike mouthguards which are only worn at night or during sports, Invisalign trays should be worn at least 20-22 hours daily.

What to expect from Invisalign treatment

Unlike mail-order aligners, you must visit a dentist to benefit from Invisalign treatment. During the consultation, we evaluate your dental health and bite to establish your suitability for clear teeth straighteners.

If you are the right candidate for Invisalign, we scan your mouth using an intraoral camera. Using the dental images, we create a 3D rendering of your mouth and simulate your treatment plan to see when and how each tooth will move to perfection.

Next, we send your teeth models to a dental lab to custom-make your dental aligners. When they arrive, you will wear each set for about two weeks before moving to the next. This sequence continues, and little by little, your teeth will be perfectly lined.
