Invisalign® Clear Braces

Patient placing Invisalign alignment trayIf you’d like to straighten your smile without spending years wearing metal brackets and wires, we offer Invisalign clear braces. Using a series of clear, plastic alignment trays, Invisalign gently shifts teeth into their proper alignment over the course of treatment. Each set of aligners represents the positioning of teeth one step closer to their ideal alignment. Patients snap in their alignment trays, wear them for about two weeks, and the gentle pressure shifts the teeth to this new location. Then, patients exchange the current set of aligners for the next set in the series, until they reach their ideal alignment in about 12 months verses the 18 to 24 months typical of traditional braces. These removable aligners allow patients to maintain their regular diet and oral hygiene routines throughout treatment. If you’d like to find out more about Invisalign options from Dr. Laura Torrado and her team, please contact us to schedule an orthodontic consultation.
