Get a beautiful smile through clear braces! Great for Teens & Adults.
We are pleased to offer the Invisalign system for straightening your smile. This system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth. The aligners are nearly invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing, and since they are removable you can eat and drink what you like during treatment; you can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
We offer flexible, low monthly payment options and convenient office hours including Saturday. Our qualified and caring team can take care of all of your dental needs in one location and we are a great choice for the entire family!
Why Choose Invisalign?
If you want a smile you can be confident about, there are many solutions that an orthodontist can provide. While the results may appear the same – a straight, beautiful smile – when you compare Invisalign to other teeth straightening options, the advantages become clear. While traditional braces are a tried and true method of achieving straighter teeth, there are options available that offer better benefits.

Invisalign offers an orthodontic solution that is guaranteed to give you a straighter, more beautiful smile. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign works by using a series of aligner trays to shift the position of teeth within your mouth.
Live Your Life the Way You Want To
With Invisalign, you can live your life the way you want to – even while straightening your teeth! Invisalign offers both comfort and convenience. The aligners are booth smooth and comfortable to wear as well as removable. During your consultation, we can walk you through the entire Invisalign process and come up with a customized treatment plan to get you the beautiful smile you deserve.
The aligner trays that Invisalign uses are made of a clear plastic. Even up-close, it is nearly impossible to see that you are wearing any sort of orthodontics. For adults who are self-conscious about getting braces and have avoided orthodontic treatment, Invisalign offers a solution that will straighten teeth and go unnoticed.
Traditional metal braces have brackets and wires that can be painful to wear over long periods of time. Brackets can scratch the inside of your mouth and become uncomfortable. Invisalign trays are custom-fit to your mouth and are more comfortable to wear. If you do experience discomfort when wearing Invisalign, consult your orthodontist to resolve the issue.
One of the biggest advantages of Invisalign is that the trays are removable. The trays are only worn for 20-22 hours a day. You can take the trays out to eat, meaning you do not need to avoid certain foods like you would with other types of braces. It also means that you can remove the trays to brush and floss your teeth. By keeping up with your oral hygiene routine, you are less likely to develop plaque, tartar, or gum disease when wearing Invisalign.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Do Invisalign Aligners Straighten Teeth?
During the course of your treatment, you are supplied with a series of aligners. Each new aligner will make slight adjustments to tooth position. This process is mapped out in advance during your Invisalign consultation and based on your specific needs. When the aligners are placed on your teeth, they cause your teeth to gradually shift from their current position. In about two week intervals you will begin using a new aligner which will continue the teeth straightening process.
Is Invisalign Treatment Painful?
Metal braces are known for creating some pain and anxiety. Invisalign typically does not cause pain or anxiety but some patients do experience minor discomfort during each new stage of treatment. This is normal and most patients describe this as a feeling of pressure. This is a sign that Invisalign is working and the discomfort usually subsides within a few days.
How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?
The length of Invisalign treatment depends upon the severity of your case. The average treatment takes about 12 months for adults. The length of treatment time necessary for a teen patient tends to vary and will be determined upon your consultation.
Are there Food Restrictions During Treatment?
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign does not restrict what you eat or drink plus you won’t get foot tidbits stuck in your braces. You can eat and drink whatever you want during treatment since the aligners are removable.
How Often Do I Have to Wear the Clear Aligners?
We find that our most successful patients wear their aligners 20-22 hours per day and are removed only for eating, brushing and flossing.
