Our office uses Invisalign to treat patient that want a straighter smile. Unlike traditional braces, there are no wires or brackets. Invisalign uses clear plastic trays and attachments to move your teeth. The attachments are tooth colored bumps attached to your teeth that will help the trays work more effectively. The amount and placement of attachments varies and can change throughout treatment. Each aligner is meant to be worn for about 22 hours a day, for two weeks. One of the biggest advantages of Invisalign is the ability to remove them to brush and floss your teeth which means healthier teeth and gums. If you have had braces before you will remember the frequent trips to the orthodontics office to change and tighten wires. Another perk of Invisalign is the reduced office visits, we give patients enough trays for a few months, when you run out it’s just a quick appointment for the doctor to check your progress and give you more trays. Whether you're concerned about one tooth, or you want a full mouth makeover Invisalign has an option for you.
