What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a series of clear, virtually invisible aligners that straighten your teeth with the most up-to-date technology and comfort.
Making the decision to get Invisalign® treatment could benefit you in many ways, your smile will never be the same!
Is it really discreet?
With the aligners, you don't need to worry about wires or the gum and mouth irritation associated with traditional treatment.
The Invisalign® aligner trays are made of smooth and virtually invisible plastic that comfortably wears over your teeth.
Frequency of Aligners
It is recommended to wear aligners for 20-22 hours per day and ideally only remove them for eating or drinking, brushing and flossing. Patients will change the custom fit aligners every two weeks and watch your teeth straighten until treatment is complete.

Will wearing Invisalign® aligners affect my speech?
Invisalign® aligners may temporarily affect the speech of some people, and you may have a slight lisp for a day or two but not for long.
As you get used to having aligners in your mouth, any lisp caused by the aligners should disappear.
Invisalign® is an effective treatment option for patients who do not want the fuss with traditional wire braces.
