New Year, New Smile! What to Know About Invisalign


Invisalign is an effective and seemingly invisible alternative to braces.

As we transition into the new year, you may be thinking of ways to improve your overall health or appearance. Have you been feeling insecure about your smile? Do you have dental work that you have been putting off? Teeth that need straightening? Don’t delay, put your best smile forward in 2016! Let’s talk about how you can do that using Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without using traditional braces. The custom-made, clear, thermoplastic, and nearly undetectable BPA-free aligners have been proven effective in both clinical research and practices nationwide.


Does it Work?


Research shows that Invisalign is implemented with over a 96% patient satisfaction rating, treating more than 2.5 million patients in 45 different countries! Every case is unique, but yes, in most cases Invisalign straightens your teeth with complete success. The aligners customized to fit your teeth will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place based on the plan your dentist or orthodontist recommends for you. About every two weeks, you will start wearing a new set of aligners until your teeth have reached the desired result.



Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign does not fuse any type of metal brackets to your teeth that require sometimes painful adjusting. Other benefits include healthier gums, easier cleanings, and decreased risk of abnormal wear. Invisalign is almost painless and in some cases can lead to weight loss. Invisalign can correct crowding, spacing, overbite, underbite and deep bite issues. And of course the most wonderful benefit of all is that nobody will be able to see that you are wearing them and working on your new smile!
