For those who want even more discretion than ceramic braces can provide, we offer Invisalign™. This revolutionary system straightens your teeth without brackets, metal bands or wires. Invisalign™ uses a series of clear plastic aligners that can be inserted and removed by the patients as needed.

You can still enjoy all the foods you love because you will not have any metal components.

The removable aligners are discreet, yet highly effective at correcting orthodontic issues. Invisalign™ is ideal for adolescents and teens who don’t want to wear traditional braces and adults who need to maintain a professional image.

At your initial assessment for Invisalign™, your orthodontist will perform a thorough examination of your teeth and jaw before creating your prescription using 3-D computer imaging. We will send your details to an Invisalign™ lab so they can design your bespoke removable aligners. This design process takes about two weeks. Your unique treatment plan will be strategically mapped out by our team for an outstanding result.

Once your aligners are ready, you will wear the first set of trays in the series for 20-22 hours a day for two weeks, removing them to eat, brush and floss your teeth. You can also remove them for special events, but this may increase the duration of treatment. Once two weeks have passed, you will insert the next aligner in the series and repeat the process.

Treatment time typically takes between 18-24 months. However, your treatment time may be shorter or longer depending on your specific case.

Invisalign™ patients must wear a retainer after their treatment is complete. Retainers can also be as discreet as the clear aligners used in Invisalign™ treatment.
