For a Radiant Smile and a Newfound Confidence
Not only do straight teeth enhance your appearance, but they can also ward off expensive dental and medical issues.
It may seem surprising, but having straight teeth is crucial for a healthy life. You might think that crooked teeth aren’t a concern if they don’t trouble you. However, for teeth to function properly and endure throughout life, they need to be rightly aligned.
Almost 90% of individuals experience some level of tooth crowding or misalignment. This can lead to:
- Chipping of front teeth or potential tooth loss.
- Trapped food particles between teeth.
- Challenges in flossing and cleaning interdentally.
- Elevated chances of interdental cavities.
- Gum diseases, such as periodontal disease, which in turn raise the risk of various systemic health issues like heart disease, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, and a heightened risk of stroke.
Should you experience any of the mentioned conditions, please arrange a visit to our office for an assessment of your dental health.
When Should You Begin?
You might have considered aligning your teeth for a while, or perhaps your dentist recently advised it. Regardless, delaying the process only extends the period of potential discontent and heightens the chances of damaging your teeth or facing associated health issues. Crucially, it’s essential to note that teeth keep moving over time.
In a few years, your teeth will be even more misaligned than they currently are.
The greater the alignment needed for your teeth, the longer the treatment duration will be. Addressing misalignment before it becomes severe is more convenient, quicker, and cost-effective.
Rest assured, the treatment is budget-friendly. You’re not expected to cover the full expense on the initiation day. Our team is eager to discuss the popular payment options that many of our patients opt for.

What Should You Anticipate Upon Beginning Your Treatment?
Our primary goal is to guide our patients towards holistic health and a captivating smile, beginning with a solid foundation. This involves aligning the teeth for correct positioning and functionality. Remember, it’s never too late to reap the benefits of having straightened teeth.
Your Treatment Plan
The journey starts with digital impressions of your teeth, forming the basis of your treatment strategy. With Invisalign’s advanced software, we can precisely forecast the evolution of your teeth during the treatment. You’ll get a glimpse of your dental progression for the upcoming weeks, months, and ultimately, the treatment’s conclusion. Once we’ve locked in your digital blueprint, Invisalign’s cutting-edge printing technology crafts your tailored aligners.
The First Aligner Trays
Upon receiving the aligners, certain unique attachments might be required. These are temporarily fixed to your teeth, enabling straightforward placement of your aligners. Rest assured, these attachments are primarily inconspicuous and will be removed once the treatment concludes.
We’ll supply you with a series of clear aligners, each set to be worn approximately for a two-week duration. As you transition from one aligner to the next in the sequence, your teeth will gradually adjust into their desired positions. Regular check-ins at our office, approximately every 1-2 months, will ensure that the treatment progresses as envisioned.

Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely, even during sleep. Wear them throughout the day and night, removing them only for meals and drinks. For the clear aligners to be effective, they need to be consistently guiding your teeth into position, so keep them on!
Typically, with Invisalign, it takes 6 to 12 months for teeth to achieve the desired alignment. However, many begin observing shifts as early as 6 weeks after receiving their initial aligner set. The extent of desired corrections will dictate the duration, regardless of the orthodontic method chosen.
Invisalign adjusts your teeth incrementally. Minor modifications can happen in just a few weeks with minimal discomfort, while intricate adjustments are spread over an extended period to maximize comfort. Some discomfort might arise, but if your Invisalign causes pain, please inform us.
Avoid eating while wearing your aligners. Subjecting them to the intense chewing pressure your teeth naturally apply can harm or break the aligners. Besides, eating with Invisalign in place is cumbersome and can get messy.
Invisalign offers greater comfort and discretion compared to traditional braces. Its clear, custom trays blend seamlessly with your teeth, often going unnoticed by most. You can even take them out for crucial events or romantic evenings! Unlike the rough edges of brace brackets, Invisalign trays are smooth, reducing the risk of pinching or scratching. If any discomfort arises from the trays pressing against your gums, adjustments can be made easily. With their mild pressure targeting a few teeth simultaneously, Invisalign stands out as a more comfortable orthodontic solution than conventional methods.
Remove and clean your tray twice daily, ensuring your teeth are cleaned too before reinserting it. Always rinse your aligner if you take it out, and avoid leaving it exposed to open air. You can soak them in denture cleaner or Invisalign cleaning crystals, but remember to rinse them thoroughly before wearing. Refrain from eating or drinking with the trays in and avoid using toothpaste on them. Comprehensive home care guidelines will be provided when you get your initial set of trays.
