The Importance of Straightening Your Teeth

Having straight teeth is not only the key to an attractive smile. It has far more benefits than you might think. Invisalign can help with several issues associated with misaligned teeth, including:

  • Poor Digestion: If your teeth are not aligned to meet properly, your chewing is not adequate, causing poor digestion.
  • Poor Oral Hygiene: Overcrowded teeth are hard to clean, resulting in increased risk for cavities and gum disease.
  • Speech Problems: Crooked teeth may affect the way you produce sounds resulting in unclear speech.
  • Jaw Pain & Headaches: When the joints connecting your jaw become strained from improper alignment, they can cause headaches and other issues.
  • Uneven Wear & Tear: Misalignment creates unequal pressure on your teeth, leading to uneven wear, and fractures.

Benefits of Invisalign

At our practice, we choose Invisalign because it is the least invasive orthodontic method and offers a host of benefits, including:

Removability – You can take out your aligners as you please, meaning you can eat regular foods and brush your teeth as usual.


Faster Treatment Times – Invisalign generally takes less time in the dental chair than with traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are intended for simple to moderate cases. If you qualify for this treatment option, you could be done in as little as 12 months.


Dual Function as Whitening Trays – Did you know you can use Invisalign aligner trays to whiten your teeth? After your orthodontic treatment, we can prescribe an at-home treatment that gently brightens your smile in a few weeks.


Discreet – Because your aligners are clear, they’re mostly invisible to others while speaking and smiling. Most people won’t notice that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.

The Invisalign Process

If you qualify, our team will take accurate, digital images and impressions of your bite to send to the Invisalign laboratory. There, a team of orthodontic experts will manufacture your customized series of aligner trays.

Once manufactured, our team will make sure they fit you precisely before you take your new aligners home.

You’ll receive a new set of trays every other week, and your teeth will gently shift under the light pressure of the aligners over time. You must wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day to see results and only remove them to eat and maintain your hygiene habits.

The final step of treatment takes place after your teeth are fully straightened. An orthodontic retainer is critical in order to keep your teeth in their new placement. This step is crucial to sustaining the alignment you have achieved.

Invisalign could be the simple solution to your alignment issues. With this and other cosmetic services, we will help you create the smile of your dreams.

Issues Invisalign Can Fix

Invisalign is an excellent orthodontic treatment successful at fixing various problems, including:

  • Unwanted gaps
  • Open bite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Underbite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite

Which is Better, Invisalign or Traditional Braces?

Traditional Braces are usually prescribed for severe misalignment and can achieve great results. However, unlike Invisalign, they are worn 24 hours a day for the duration of your treatment, making it hard to clean your teeth effectively.
