What’s the difference between Invisalign and Braces?

Invisalign gives you the smile you want without metal braces! Treatments often take as little as a single year.

What is Invisalign?

For patients looking to achieve a beautiful smile with an invisible option, we would suggest Invisalign.

This system allows the teeth to be gently aligned over time using a series of aligners (all of them invisible!) which when worn in series will gradually correct your teeth into their final position.

3D Scanning with iTero.

We offer iTero 3D imaging at our office which allows our patients to have their entire treatment plan processed and visualized in 3D space in just one visit. Patients love this system as we don’t have to subject them to taking multiple impressions of their teeth with goopy impression making materials.

3D scanning is also much more accurate than impressions. This allows for better fitting of the custom manufactured aligners which ultimately contributes to a superior, more predictable result for the patient..

What’s the difference?

With Invisalign there are no wires or brackets to deal with. The system is completely clear so people won’t even know you are wearing them. The aligners are also removable allowing you to eat whatever you wish and also making oral hygiene easier to deal with.

Over the life of your case, you’ll visit our office every 6-8 weeks to make sure everything is progressing properly and the entire process is usually completed in a year or less!
