Clear Aligners to Straighten Your Teeth in Less Time
If you have been delaying braces because you do not want the look of metal braces on your teeth, let us welcome
you to the innovative world of Invisalign™ invisible aligners. These clear aligners are barely noticeable
and will straighten issues such as crossbite, underbite, overbite, overcrowding, and widely spaced teeth in
only 9 - 15 months!
The Invisalign system uses 3-D computer imaging to formulate a full treatment plan. It begins with the current
alignment of your teeth and progresses to your new smile with straight, even teeth. Thermoplastic aligners are
made from this computerized plan. They are similar to whitening trays and fit over your teeth. About every two
weeks you progress to the next set of aligners and continue until you reach your final goal with a new smile.
Evaluation is made in our office about once a month. Total treatment time varies depending on your needs and goals.
Comfort and Convenience with Invisalign
There are several advantages to straightening your teeth with Invisalign. Most people like the fact that they are
virtually invisible and do not significantly change the appearance of teeth during correction. Someone would have
to look very closely to notice that you are wearing aligners. This helps improve your confidence during active treatment.
Comfort is another big benefit with Invisalign. They are easy to wear in one piece without wires wrapped around
brackets, no headgear required, and no mouth irritation. Trips to the dentist to monitor progress are minimal.
Even better, you can eat and drink whatever you want during your treatment. The aligners can be taken out for
proper cleaning, so there are no food or drink restrictions. This also makes it easy to keep your teeth clean by
removing the aligners and brushing and flossing for proper daily hygiene and then easily re-insert them to resume
the alignment progress.

The Fast Track to Your Straighter Smile
We strive to provide the best in orthodontic treatment for our patients, so we are excited to offer two options for a faster orthodontic treatment.
The first is PROPEL™, an advanced orthodontic technique that allows treatment to be completed in about half the usual time. While each patient
varies, many patients can now have their orthodontic plan completed in months instead of years! PROPEL works with your own biology to stimulate the
bone around your teeth, helping teeth to move more quickly and more predictably into their best positions so we can reveal your new smile faster and
in fewer appointments.
The second option is the AcceleDent™ System. This is a device much like a mouthguard. The patient simply places the device into their mouth for
20 minutes a day. The system applies microvibrations to the teeth and the underlying bone, which enhances the gentle force applied by the aligners and
increases the rate of tooth movement. It's very comfortable to wear and simple to use and has been clinically proven to lessen treatment time.
If you've been putting off straightening your smile because you don't want it to take a long time – now you don't have to. We provide PROPEL and AcceleDent
for Invisalign and offer complimentary consultations for both. If you would like to accelerate your orthodontic treatment today, contact us to learn which
option is right for you.
