“Thank you! I always feel very comfortable at the office; everyone is really friendly and pleasant. Great team of professionals!” – Christina M.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign operates on the same basic premise as traditional braces with brackets; by applying gentle pressure to the teeth over time, the clear aligners move teeth into optimal positioning for aesthetics and function. The main differences between Invisalign and braces are comfort, visibility and convenience.
As you progress through treatment, you’ll receive new trays every few weeks, graduating from aligner to aligner. When you wear your retainers for at least 22 hours per day, you can expect treatment to progress as planned.
Is Invisalign Right for Me?
All cases of mild malocclusion can be treated with clear aligners. Most moderate cases can be treated with Invisalign, as well. Dr. Waite and his team will evaluate your eligibility and decide if this method works best for you. Most often, the aligner system is sufficient to achieve your desired results.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Many people seek out clear aligners over other orthodontic options because it offers many benefits.
The aligners are discreet. They are nearly unnoticeable from a normal speaking distance and are removable. You don’t have to change your eating or brushing habits.
They double as teeth-whitening trays. You can fill your aligners with our professional-strength whitening solution, achieving a whiter, straighter smile.
