Clear Aligners / Invisalign

Straighten Your Teeth With Clear Aligners / Invisalign

What is Clear Aligners / Invisalign?

Clear Aligners / Invisalign is a treatment that gently move teeth into place. The trays are worn in a series over time to create a beautiful smile. Clear Aligners / Invisalign are a popular alternative to traditional braces, and do not have any brackets or wires. The aligners are discrete and are comfortable when worn, and do not cause any mouth or gum irritation.

The clear aligner trays are worn anywhere between 20-22 hours a day. Clear aligners / Invisalign are easily removable for drinking and eating. Each aligner will add a pre-defined movement of your teeth, so it is important to wear them until the aimed position is achieved.

The number of aligners and the treatment duration will vary depending on the severity of the case. Invisalign offers different plans with different prices for each case.

Clear aligners / Invisalign are a popular choice for both teens and adults. This treatment helps if you have overcrowding, chewing, or overbite issues. Aligners are particularly beneficial to patients who need simple corrections because these patients will not have to have the trouble of the braces for such a quick treatment. Older teens and adults can follow instructions daily and ensure the trays are worn for the required amount of time. On average this treatment takes between 6-18 months, and this is quicker than or comparable to the treatment time for self-ligated braces. During our consultation process we will discuss each patient’s age, level of correction, and smile goals to help choose which orthodontic treatment is best.
