Comfort, Convenience and Confidence is what you’ll find when straightening your teeth with Invisalign! Over 2 million patients are Smiling thanks to Invisalign! Without brackets or wires, this modern day approach to teeth straightening is virtually invisible. 3-D computer imaging technology is used to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position from which a series of custom-made, clear “aligners” are produced. Each “aligner” moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then replaced by the next aligner in the series until the final position is achieved.
- Invisalign is clear. You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
- Invisalign is removable. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
- Invisalign is comfortable. There are no metal brackets or wires as with braces to cause mouth irritation, and no metal or wires means you spend less time in the doctor’s chair getting adjustments.
- Invisalign allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
Drs. Tom and Shannon Galinis are excited by the possibilities and advancements now available with Invisalign.
