Invisalign® is the modern alternative to conventional braces. Through the use of a system of clear aligners, your teeth can be straightened quickly and privately. Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible, enabling you to have your teeth straightened without drawing unwanted attention; plus these aligners won’t rob you of the freedom to eat and drink whatever you prefer.
This removable orthodontic option will also preserve your ability to brush and floss normally in order to maintain a high level of oral hygiene, as there are no wires or metal brackets to navigate around.
Even if you have never considered traditional metal braces, you’ll be glad to know that you can improve your smile in privacy and comfort with Invisalign®.

- Dental appointments for monitoring and adjustments should be scheduled approximately every 6 - 8 weeks.
