What is Invisalign®?

If you are interested in straightening your teeth, we may recommend a clear aligner system called Invisalign® to meet your individual needs. Invisalign offers several advantages over traditional braces. One of the most obvious benefits to Invisalign is the fact that the aligners are practically invisible. Another significant advantage is that Invisalign can be removed at any time, making tasks such as eating and maintaining sound dental hygiene simpler.

Who should use Invisalign?

Dr. Cory Williams may recommend Invisalign for you if your teeth are slightly crooked or if your smile is overly crowded. Also, our dentist is more likely to recommend Invisalign for adults and teenagers than for children. Aside from the aesthetic benefits offered by Invisalign, having straight teeth offers several long-term health benefits. Properly aligned teeth are generally at a lower risk for dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease. If Invisalign is right for you, our dentist will create a mold of your smile, from your custom aligners will be created. Soon, your aligners will arrive, designed to slightly move your teeth. Every two weeks, you will receive a slightly different set of aligners until your teeth are in their optimal positions. Generally, this takes between 10 and 24 months.
