Invisalign Clear Aligners

Do you want straight teeth but don’t want to wear braces?


In the past, braces were required to straighten teeth with brackets and wires. Technology has advanced enormously and now there are new exciting alternatives to traditional braces in the form of Invisalign clear aligners.

What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Invisalign treatment is the virtually invisible way to straighten teeth without the need for traditional braces using fixed brackets and wires. The Invisalign system uses clear, removable ‘aligners’ to straighten teeth without any metal or wires.

Do Invisalign Clear Aligners Really Work?

Yes! In both clinical research and in dental practices around the world, Invisalign treatment has been effectively used to straighten teeth. Millions of patients with a wide variety of dental challenges have been successfully treated with the Invisalign system.

Invisalign clear aligners use 3D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial teeth position to the final desired teeth position. This imaging is used to create a series of custom-made invisible  orthodontic “aligners”. Each orthodontic aligner moves the teeth incrementally while being worn for approximately two weeks. It is then replaced by the next aligner in the series until the final desired teeth position is achieved. The result is a beautiful smile of straight teeth.

What Are The Benefits Of the Invisalign System?

There are four main benefits compared to traditional braces:

  • Invisalign clear aligners are nearly invisible – you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
  • The aligners are removable – you can eat and drink what you want throughout your orthodontic treatment; you can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
  • The aligners are comfortable – there are no metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation. No metal or wires also means you spend less time in the dentist’s chair getting adjustments or needing repairs to fix broken wires.
  • The Invisalign system allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start. This incredible technology allows you to see how your teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
