Invisalign® Orthodontics


Your occlusion, which is the way your teeth fit together when you bite, heavily influences the beauty of your smile and your ability to comfortably speak and chew. Patients with malocclusions suffer from poorly aligned teeth and potentially misaligned jaws. When your top and bottom teeth do not fit together comfortably as you bite down, negative side effects often occur. You may feel disappointed with the appearance of your smile as the result of a lack of uniformity. Or, because you may shift your jaw to compensate for poor alignment, you may place stress on your jaw joints, a problem that may progress into TMJ disorder. Fortunately, we offer orthodontic treatment to align your smile with the use of the Invisalign system, prized for its nearly undetectable construction and ability to target many types of misalignment.

Aligning Your Smile With Invisalign®

Invisalign aligns your teeth through a different yet effective method than that used with traditional braces. Rather than utilizing brackets and wires, Invisalign relies on clear aligner trays. You will graduate through a series of custom-fitted aligner trays over the course of your treatment to shift your teeth into proper alignment.

Questions About Invisalign®

What are the trays like?

The aligner trays are made of clear, BPA-free, smooth plastic for nearly undetectable treatment and minimal irritation to your soft tissues.

Will I be able to speak while wearing my trays?

Yes, after a brief adjustment period, you will be able to speak comfortably and articulately.

Can I take the trays out of my mouth during the day?

You may remove your trays to eat and to care for your teeth. We recommend that you keep them in your mouth for approximately 20 to 22 hours each day.

What types of problems will Invisalign treatment improve?

Invisalign will improve the alignment of your teeth for a dramatic smile enhancement. Alignment may also relieve tension from your jaw joints. Though aligner trays do not address all types of malocclusions, they will effectively treat the following:

  • Overcrowding
  • Spacing
  • Cross bite
  • Over bite
  • Under bite
  • Open bite
