Invisalign® - Invisible orthodontics

This briefly introduced advanced method of teeth regulation enables you to obtain perfectly aligned teeth even past your teenage years, all this without having to wear the standard conspicuous Brackets. For detailed information about the Invisalign® method, contact us for an appointment and/or visit the www.invisalign.com homepage.

What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is the invisible new way to straighten teeth without braces. Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires.


How does Invisalign® work?
Invisalign® uses 3-D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position from which a series of custom-made "Aligners" are produced. Each "Aligner" moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.
What do aligners look like?
Aligners are nearly invisible and look similar to clear tooth-whitening trays, but are custom-made for a better fit to move teeth. Some orthodontists and dentists have referred to them as "contact lenses for teeth."
What are the primary benefits of Invisalign®?
There are four primary benefits of Invisalign®:



  • Invisalign® is nearly invisible - you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.  
  • Invisalign® is removable - you can eat and drink what you want in treatment; you can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.  
  • Invisalign® is comfortable - there are no metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation; no metal or wires also means you spend less time in the doctor's chair getting adjustments. 
  • Invisalign® allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start - so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How much does Invisalign® cost?
As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign® is heavily dependent on the complexity of a patient's case. The cost is generally more expensive than traditional brackets, however, since Align does not dictate what doctors charge their patients for treatment, we are unable to provide specific cost information.
