Developed with Orthodontists,
Invisalign® is a virtually invisible solution, so you can smile confidently both during treatment and after. Using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign® gradually moves your teeth toward the smile you’ve always wanted. And almost no one will know you are wearing them unless you tell them. The Hygienic Benefits of Straighter Teeth HEALTHIER GUMS Properly positioned teeth are easier to brush and floss than teeth that are crowded, crooked, or spaced too far apart. Properly aligned teeth can help gums fit more tightly around them, which may lead to better periodontal health. EASIER CLEANINGS With maintenance of good oral hygiene, the chances of having plaque retention, tooth decay, or periodontal (gum) disease can be reduced. DECREASED RISK OF NORMAL WEAR Properly aligned teeth can be less stressful on the supporting bone jaw joints.

How Does Invisalign® Work?
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligners are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing your aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you’ve always wanted. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
How Much Does Invisalign® Cost?
In most cases, Invisalign® treatment is comparable to the cost of traditional braces. However, as with other medical treatments, only your doctor can determine the cost, based on your specific needs. Other factors may include your treatment goals, the difficulty of your case, how long you are in treatment, where you live, your orthodontic insurance coverage, and additional factors determined by your dentist or orthodontist.
