Invisalign®

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® has changed the face of orthodontics. Instead of wires attached to your teeth, your teeth can now be straightened invisibly. Invisalign® is a clear, removable and comfortable alternative to traditional braces. However, only a certified dentist like ours can undertake this procedure.

Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth.

Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.

When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your doctor.

Only Invisalign clear aligners are made of proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material to gently shift your teeth into place.

With Invisalign aligners, you don’t need to worry about the gum and mouth irritation other teeth-straightening methods can cause.

What's involved?

  • A set of aligners are worn for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
  • As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position the dentist has prescribed.
  • You will visit us approximately once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
  • Total treatment time averages 11 months with the average number of aligners worn during treatment between 18 and 30. This of course will vary from case to case.

The aligners are made through a combination of our dentists’ expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology provided by the Invisalign® company.

I never imagined at 32 I could get Invisalign! Dr. Lang said I was a good candidate and in just 1 year, I have straight teeth!
