Gently guide your teeth into alignment in less time, and discreetly with Invisalign®
Straightening your smile has never been easier or more discreet than with the Invisalign® system. Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign® can straighten misaligned teeth, eliminate crowding, and close gaps between teeth without the need for traditional metal brackets and wires. Invisalign® works by adjusting the smile gradually with a series of removable clear plastic aligners. Whether your teeth are in need of small improvements or significant adjustments, Invisalign® may be able to help you achieve the straight, beautiful smile you desire. Treatment time may span over a year or less, depending on the degree of realignment needed to accomplish your goals.

Many individuals are candidates for Invisalign®. This modern orthodontic treatment can be an ideal and highly effective solution for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. Good candidates for orthodontic correction with Invisalign® typically meet the following criteria:
- Adult or teen with fully emerged permanent molars
- Mild to moderate crowding, uneven spacing, misalignment, and/or bite problems
- Committed to a treatment length between 6-18 months for adults (treatment lengths can vary based on the severity of the case)
- Willing to wear aligners between 20-22 hours per day
- Do not have bridges or dental implants in place
If you are wondering whether you may be a good candidate, our dentist can evaluate your smile during a consultation to determine if Invisalign® is the right treatment option for you. We will also discuss the potential length of your treatment and provide you with a general cost estimate for your care.
