Straighten your smile without braces
For most patients, straight teeth equal a beautiful smile. But did you know that a properly aligned bite is also healthier? Overlapped, crooked, or rotated teeth create a daily cleaning challenge. Helping even a couple straggling teeth find their proper place can leave you with a healthier mouth.
Straight teeth aren’t just for kids! Adults often make the most dedicated orthodontic patients, and it’s never too late to discuss the options for a bright, straight smile.

Why straight teeth can benefit your dental health
Besides the boost to your confidence that a beautiful smile brings, straighter teeth also improve your oral health. When teeth overlap or are unevenly spaced, it can be difficult to keep them clean during brushing and flossing. Plaque and bacteria that get trapped in places that are hard to brush can increase your risk of developing problems like cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease.
A bite that is not correctly aligned can cause painful jaw joint issues and even headaches. Having teeth that are uniform and properly aligned will help you maintain your dental health in a more straightforward manner.
HOW IT WORKS
Clear aligners work by placing constant, gentle force on your teeth in order to carefully move them into more desirable positions.
Removable trays can be set aside for short periods, allowing for normal eating and cleaning. The smooth plastic surface offers a comfort level to the tongue and cheeks unequaled by other forms of straightening.
WHAT IT FIXES
Spacing / Gaps
Overbite and deep bite
Gaps Caused by Missing Teeth
Relapse from Previous Orthodontic Treatment
DURATION OF TREATMENT
While each case is unique, treatment is typically completed in approximately 6-9 months. The most important factor in achieving effective and efficient treatment is patient compliance. This includes everything from meticulous home care (brushing and flossing) to keeping your regular orthodontic recall appointments (every 6-10 weeks).
Some companies will have you take impressions of your teeth at home and mail you clear aligners. While you may be saving some money, you should carefully consider the downsides. Uncontrolled tooth movement and DIY orthodontics can lead to bad bites, poor esthetics, and even tooth loss. Invisalign offers exceptional outcomes and predictable results, time after time.
