What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional metal braces! Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you are wearing. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective.

Why would I want Invisalign?

Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat, drink, floss and brush as usual while in treatment. The Invisalign aligners are very comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. No metal and wires typically means you spend less time in your dentist’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how beautiful your teeth will look upon treatment completion.

How does Invisalign work?

You wear each set of custom made aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Ona had prescribed. Total treatment time averages approximately 12 months but does vary from case to case.
