Misaligned teeth present both an aesthetic and functional problem in the mouth. The issue can impact your smile, but also affects the function of your overall bite – which in turn causes jaw pain, stiff neck &shoulders, and headaches.A corrected bite will keep the jaw and adjacent parts of the head and neck in in proper position – thereby minimizing ailments.
With the Invisalign® system, a series of clear, plastic aligners are used to gradually reposition your teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, an Invisalign® retainer is virtually invisible. This allows our patients to achieve straight, beautiful new smiles without the bulky, metallic look of traditional braces. And since Invisalign® retainers are removable at any time – eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing can be done without having them in the mouth – making oral hygiene far easier to maintain.
The process involves custom-designed clear aligners that are replaced every two weeks.Treatment time generally ranges 6 to 18 months, and the cost is comparable to that of most other cosmetic treatments.
