Invisalign is the Clear Path to Straighter Teeth and a More Confident Smile

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a method of orthodontics in which a series of clear, removable aligners are used to gradually straighten teeth.

How does it work?

Using an iTero scanner, we take a quick and precise 3D scan of your child’s teeth so that a custom treatment plan can be mapped out. Dr. Eric will be able to make digital corrections to the teeth in the computer system before printing the aligners exactly how he wants them.

The clear aligners are designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on Dr. Eric’s treatment plan.

Dr. Eric will then monitor the movement and progress of the teeth every couple of months to ensure that the teeth are aligning according to his custom blueprint.

How do I know if Invisalign is right for me?

If your child or teen is interested in Invisalign, just ask! Dr. Eric will take into account different factors to decide if the orthodontic movement required can be accomplished with clear aligners.

While Invisalign is a great alternative for someone who wants to avoid the brackets and wires used with conventional braces, it will still require a great commitment.

Some patients find it fun being able to take an active role in the movement of their teeth by being responsible for wearing the aligners and changing them when indicated. For some, it may prove a challenge wearing the aligners for 22 hours a day and not losing them!

You know your child best and we can help you make the determination about what method is right for them.
