Finally, an alternative to metal braces. Invisalign Orthodontics is a breakthrough technology that straightens the teeth with virtually invisible and custom-made tray aligners. The average Invisalign course of treatment takes about a year. During that time, you will change to a new set of aligners every two weeks. Each set of aligners gently moves your teeth one step closer to their optimal position until you develop a beautiful, healthy smile. Invisalign Orthodontics are great for adults and teenagers who wish to straighten their teeth without metal braces. The aligners are made through a combination of our expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.
Invisalign Orthodontics can be used to fix:
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps in teeth
- Shifting of teeth after braces

Invisalign Treatment Process
A dentist will take x-rays and impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create a digital 3-D image of your mouth. A series of custom-made aligners will be created specifically for you. You’ll wear them throughout the day and night and remove them only to eat, brush, or floss. Approximately every two weeks, you will receive a new set of aligners, slowly moving your teeth to their desired location. The length of treatment will vary, depending on your teeth. Typically, treatment takes approximately a year for adults and is comparable to that of braces for teenagers.
