Treatment That Works for You
Getting treatment means needing eliminating the roadblocks standing in your way. For some, this is the fear of impressions, which we address using digital imaging rather than gloopy molds. For others, it is the look of braces, which we get around by offering many types of braces. Then there is the issue of affording treatment, which we help with by offering discounts, payment plans, and insurance billing. With us, we take all possible steps to make treatment work for you.

For decades, straightening teeth meant one thing for the majority of patients: braces. And these braces all looked pretty much the same. Everyone wore them, and many weren’t exactly satisfied with what they offered, despite them delivering good results.
Ultimately, patients wanted choice, and that is where Invisalign stepped in. Here is what you need to know about this system that changed the course of orthodontics.
How Does Invisalign Work? +
Both braces and Invisalign get teeth to move into their ideal position by placing force on the teeth. With braces, it is the wires that exert the pressure. With Invisalign, it is the shape of the aligners. Invisalign aligners are made from clear, hard plastic, so they are great at applying the right amount of pressure. Each aligner is shaped differently, changing the pressure and keeping the teeth moving. Once treatment is complete, the teeth will be in their ideal placements.
How Is Invisalign Made? +
The basis for the creation of your aligners will be a 3D digital scan of your dental anatomy. The scan is imported by Invisalign’s software and based on the rendering, a plan will be made. The doctor then reviews this and tweaks it so it is perfect for the patient. Each step in the process becomes an aligner, which are custom made just for you.
What Makes Invisalign Great? +
Invisalign seems like the ideal form of treatment to many, but before you decide whether or not you are interested, we want you to know more about what makes it so great. While many focus on the aligners being invisible when worn, the system offers a lot more than that, including:
- Plastic aligners do not rub against the soft tissues of the mouth
- Treatment goes faster than with traditional braces
- Invisalign does not change speech
- It can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing
- You make the adjustments when you change aligners, so you see us less often
