This alternative to metal braces with colorful bands is popular with many teens and adults. They may need orthodontic treatment but might not want to get something that is so noticeable. Or perhaps they prefer something that is fuss-free. Our caring and compassionate team can advise you as to whether or not Invisalign is the right fit for you or your child.

What are clear aligners?

You may have heard that this dental treatment is all the rage, but what exactly are invisible aligners? In short, Invisalign means you can spend less time thinking about your teeth and more time living the life you want. Unlike the traditional option, clear braces are made to fit over your teeth, and they are removable for when you need to take a break.


Who can get Invisalign?

These clear aligners are a good choice for adults since they are less noticeable and cumbersome than traditional metal braces. They are also a good option for teens because they are comfortable, trendy, and aligned to fit the wearer. They are best for those with a little bit more in their dental budget or who live an active lifestyle.

Why are clear aligners worth getting?

Clear aligners are a modern choice for those who want to fix their teeth while still living a busy life. For example, maybe you are a huge foodie and want something to pop in and out when it comes time for each meal. Because they're basically clear braces, these aligners are also good for those who want something that has an unnoticeable appearance. We'll be happy to share the additional benefits of this option when you come in.

How do invisible aligners work?

In just three simple steps, you can be well on your way to a better, more even smile, giving you the confidence to smile wide. Here is a breakdown:

1. Visit us to get a consultation for you or your child. We will look in the patient’s mouth as well as use a scanner to make a custom map of the teeth so we can make the best invisible braces possible.

2. We will let the patient know what to expect, and then it is up to them. Wear the aligners, check-in with our team on a regular basis, and take them out as needed.

3. Schedule appointments to review progress, and consider opting for a retainer at the end of treatment to ensure your smile stays great.

When will I see results from clear braces?

Clear aligners also have the benefit of working fast. If you are wondering how long it will take, results may be seen in as few as six months.
