Invisalign® is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways among adults to correct misaligned teeth. For teeth that are poorly aligned, crowded, widely spaced, or exhibit an overbite, underbite, or cross bite, we recommend Invisalign® as an effective, virtually undetectable way to correct your smile.
Invisalign® is an alternative to traditional braces that works by using a series of clear, customized aligners that, over time, move your teeth into proper alignment. Because the Invisalign® clear aligners work without wires, bands, and brackets, they are not noticeable in most situations.
Patients wear a series of 18 to 30 different clear aligners — depending on the severity of the misalignment. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and then replaced by the next aligner in the series until the prescribed alignment is achieved. The Invisalign® aligners are worn during the day and through the night. They can be removed as necessary for eating, brushing, and flossing. Patients generally finish treatment in less than a year.
