The Braces Alternative

Invisalign® allows our patients to get the smile of a lifetime without having to feel self-conscious about braces.

It’s a unique system of clear overlay templates called aligners that gradually move the teeth. With Invisalign, you have clear, custom aligners that can be removed at any time for easier oral hygiene. Using Invisalign is a comfortable experience and requires a shorter treatment time than traditional braces without the use of wires or brackets.

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign teen® uses aligners that are made for smaller, growing mouths.

Each aligner comes with a blue indicator dot that lets your teen know when its time to switch to their next aligner. Aligners can be removed for brushing and flossing allowing for excellent oral hygiene.

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