A BEAUTIFUL SMILE WITH
We offer a modern solution of straightening your teeth through clear braces, made specifically to fit your mouth.
Invisible Braces Vs. Metal braces
Invisalign is an exciting new dental technology that straightens your teeth with a series of clear, customized, removable aligners. The aligner is a thin piece of medical grade plastic that fits over the teeth like a glove would fit on a hand.
Invisalign Teen uses the same Invisalign technology as adult aligners, moving teeth gradually with each set of clear, comfortable plastic aligners. But because teens (and their mouths) are constantly on the move, we’ve added a few special features.
Designed to compensate for the growth of new teeth and molars.
Best of all, Invisalign Teen works. So teens can smile with confidence and parents can, too.
HOW DOES INVISALIGN WORK?
- Invisalign treatment starts with a dental examination by our experienced invisalign dentist to develop a computer model of your treatment
- Invisalign will then make a series of custom made aligners that will only fit you. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position. You wear each aligner for two weeks, before moving on to the next in the series.
- We will see you for a progress review every four to six weeks and you will then receive your new aligners. Each Aligner will move your teeth little by little, week by week, until they reach the desired position.
- Treatment length will vary depending on your case, but the average Invisalign treatment is nine to fifteen months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30 aligners. Finally all that remains is for you to show off your beautiful new smile!
What are the advantages of Invisalign treatment?
- Predictable treatment, as Invisalign is planned in advance, we can more accurately predict when your treatment will be finished.
- Cosmetically superior to normal braces due to near invisibility of Invisalign braces. So, no more embarrassing metal wires.

How do Braces Straighten Crooked Teeth?
Braces use constant, gentle pressure, which over time, move teeth into their proper positions.
The wire threads through the brackets and, as the wire tries to return to its original shape, it applies pressure to move your teeth. Picture your tooth resting in your jaw bone. With pressure on one side from the archwire, the bone on the other side gives way. The tooth moves. New bone grows in behind.
Attached to your braces, elastics (rubber bands) exert the proper force that creates the right amount of pressure to move teeth. In order for this force to remain constant, elastics must be worn all the time and changed every day.
Do Braces Hurt?
One of the most commonly asked questions about dental braces is whether placing them causes any pain or discomfort.
What to expect when getting braces?
Here is an overview of what you can expect when getting braces:
Placement day – The placement of braces will not be painful in the slightest.
Two days after placement – The first several days after placement of braces can be slightly uncomfortable. Click here to Read More
Five days after placement – After five days, any initial discomfort associated with the braces should be completely gone. Click here to Read More
Orthodontic appointments – Regular orthodontic appointments are necessary to allow the orthodontist to change the archwire, change the rubber or metal ties, and make adjustments to the braces. Click here to Read More
Dealing with discomfort – Over-the-counter pain medication and orthodontic relief wax will help alleviate any mild soreness and discomfort following placement of braces and orthodontic adjustments. Another effective remedy is to chew sugar-free gum, as this increases blood flow which helps reduces discomfort and can also encourage the teeth to align quicker.
