What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a modern approach to teeth straightening that includes a series of clear, comfortable and removable aligners. Invisalign® is popularly known as the alternative choice to traditional metal braces. The plastic material is smooth and created solely for your own teeth which are fabricated by impressions taken in the office. The aligners move the teeth into place with each slight movement planned using 3-D technology; the teeth will gradually shift into a proper bite and straight smile.

Am I a candidate for treatment?

Crowding, spacing, over-bites, under-bites, cross-bites, deep-bites, open-bites and patients who used to wear braces & have had tooth relapse are ideal candidates for Invisalign®.

How long is the treatment?

In mild to moderate crowding or spacing cases, treatment can range from 3 to 6 months. However, treatment length varies depending on individual needs and the number of aligners needed; the doctor will provide a treatment length estimate prior to the commencement of treatment. Typically, the patient will visit the office every 6 – 10 weeks during treatment to evaluate progress and make any necessary adjustments.

How much does it cost and what are the benefits?

The cost for Invisalign® varies depending on treatment complexity and the presence or absence of insurance. At the consultation appointment, you will be given an estimate.

Some of the benefits include:

  • no metal wires or brackets
