Invisalign ®

If you are dissatisfied with your smile but haven’t done anything about it because you aren’t interested in a mouthful of metal braces, Invisalign may be the answer for you. It eliminates the discomfort of wearing metal wires and the inconvenience of adjustments.

Invisalign® uses the latest in 3-D computer imaging to determine a path of projected tooth movement for each patient. This allows us to design a series of personalized aligners, or repositioners, that work to straighten your teeth over time. Each aligner is worn for an approximately two week period before changing to the next set.
Invisalign® capably treats most common problems found in adult and teen mouths. It is successful in straightening crooked teeth, eliminating crowding and closing gaps between the teeth. Invisalign® can benefit everything from minor cosmetic issues to more complex bite problems.
  • Cosmetic Appeal: Invisalign® is an invisible solution that doesn’t draw attention to your mouth. Most people won’t know you’re wearing them unless you tell.
  • Removability Promotes Better Hygiene: The Invisalign® repositioners are removable for ease in brushing and flossing. Metal braces are harder to keep clean, potentially causing plaque build up that can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. Research has found that choosing Invisalign® instead can improve gum health.
  • No Restrictions on What You Can Eat: The removable aligners give you the freedom to continue eating all your favorite foods without restriction.
  • Made to Fit Your Lifestyle, Not Change It: With no metal or wires to irritate your mouth, you can enjoy an active, athletic lifestyle without worrying about injuring yourself or breaking a bracket. And since Invisalign® is clear and removable, you can maintain your professional appearance as well as confidently speak in public.
  • Low Cost Flexible Payment Options: We offer payment plans to suit different budgets, including interest-free monthly financing. We also have extended payment options through third-party financing. Our goal is to customize your payment plan to fit your needs.
