Invisalign ImageWhat is one of the leading brands in the field of orthodontics? It’s Invisalign—the in-demand aligner for a clear solution to malocclusion. The aligners are invisible and removable, and the design of the appliance appeals to millions of orthodontic patients. 
We understand our patients’ frustrations with dental imperfections and noticeable treatment options. Our practice is dedicated to making our patients feel confident with our services while also seeing the results they want. 

What’s Invisalign Treatment Time Like? 

Each patient exhibits similar malocclusion issues, but your dental makeup is unique, unlike anyone else’s. With the help of 3D-images and impressions, we are able to create custom-fit aligners that will match the exact movements of your teeth. Shifting the teeth into their desirable alignment takes time, but usually Invisalign treatment takes 12 months. 

Invisalign: It’s Not Just for Looks 

The main reason we insist that malocclusion be treated is because it’s a problem for oral health. A misaligned jaw and teeth, even spacing issues, doesn’t just affect the look of your smile. Bite and spacing problems also cause oral health concerns. 
It’s harder to brush and floss teeth that aren’t correctly aligned. Without the ability to successfully remove plaque bacteria, there is raised risk of tooth decay.
