If you do not like the traditional method of orthodontics, we offer another solution to achieve straighter teeth called Invisalign®. Thanks to this clear tray method, you do not see any metal, making it almost impossible for anyone to even know your child is wearing braces.
Invisalign is worn all day and night but can be easily removed when you eat and brush your teeth, making them a much more practical solution than traditional braces. Providing Invisalign to patients of all ages, we are proud to help you achieve the smile you wish for, using a method you are comfortable with.
How it Invisalign works
When you come into our offices, we will take a 3D scan of your child’s teeth. These scans are models that allow us to create a custom treatment plan, designing a series of clear braces that will be worn and exchanged every two weeks. While using your Invisalign, you will come into our office to ensure that your teeth are moving into the proper position, fixing the oral tissues you may have had. Because your trays and plan are designed for your specific needs, we ask that you come in to see us so we can ensure your Invisalign trays are efficiently working the way we planned.
Invisalign is a wonderful way to straighten teeth or make room for overcrowding, and it is virtually impossible to see. Although it varies from child to child, many patients wear their Invisalign for just two years.
Added benefits over traditional braces
Both traditional braces and Invisalign® will treat a broad assortment of cases that include under-bits, over-bites, crossbites, spacing issues, and teeth crowding. The best thing about Invisalign® is the product is essentially invisiable to the naked eye and easily transportable anywhere in the world. This fosters improved oral health and more enjoyable meals.

Frequently asked questions about Invisalign:

Typically each aligner is worn for a period of two weeks. However each course is specific to the patient and therefore your doctor will outline a specific plan or cycle for you.
