The Invisalign® system, the braces alternative, allows our patients to get the smile of a lifetime without having to feel self-conscious about braces.
When you think about orthodontics, more often than not, a vision of traditional metal braces comes to mind. Invisalign clear aligners, the braces alternative for teens and adults, allow our patients to get the smile of a lifetime without having to feel self-conscious about braces.
Invisalign treatment is a unique system of clear, custom aligners that gradually move the teeth. Aligners can be removed for brushing and flossing, allowing for excellent oral hygiene. Invisalign aligners provide a comfortable experience that generally takes about the same amount of time conventional braces (brackets and wires) take. Some published reports suggest that the time needed may be less. This treatment costs the same as braces, and aligners are not very difficult to replace if you lose one.
Once a patient decides to use the Invisalign system, Dr. Igel and Dr. Chartrand will use the state-of-the-art iTero® scanner to capture 3D images of their teeth.
There are a large number of benefits that come from using the Invisalign system, including:
- Discreetness. The clear aligners of the Invisalign system are made from an almost completely transparent plastic, which blends in nearly perfectly with your smile. With braces, it is impossible to forget that you have a mouth full of metal. With the Invisalign system, it is sometimes easy to forget you are straightening your smile at all!
- Comfort. The Invisalign clear aligner system is designed and optimized for patient comfort. No other clear aligner system is as precisely crafted for each individual’s smile, and the process is so gentle and subtle that you might even forget you are wearing your aligners.
- Reliability. There are quite a few clear aligner companies out there, but none have the same outstanding track record as the Invisalign system. The technology at the core of the Invisalign system is second to none, and when you begin your treatment, you can have confidence that Invisalign clear aligners, combined with the expertise of our orthodontists, can help you achieve your smile goals.

The Invisalign Teen system also treats a broad range of dental conditions including overly crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, crossbite, overbite and underbite.
