How It Works
Why choose Invisalign® aligners
I wanted to address my crooked teeth for well over a decade, but metal braces were simply not an option for me for a variety of reasons. While I often thought about the possibility of Invisalign, I didn’t think I would be a candidate for Invisalign, mainly because my teeth had shifted quite a bit as I’ve grown older, and I have two crowns. When I finally asked my dentist, I was relieved to learn I was a candidate for Invisalign. I’ve been wearing Invisalign for about a year now, and I could not be happier. My teeth are so much straighter, cosmetically my smile is noticeably different, but my bite is also improved, and my teeth are easier to clean. Wearing these could not be easier, and though I’d feared that people would notice them when I speak, this has not been the case. There has basically been no lifestyle change while wearing these, but they have definitely made me much more confident in my smile!
Not only are my teeth straighter, I can breather better especially at night so I sleep better and I noticed that I can open my mouth wider. THANK YOU Dr.Kawasugi, Mel, and staff for supporting me and always being not only professional and efficient but emotionally supportive and cheerful. You are a fabulous team!!
Who is Invisalign® for?
Invisalign® aligners are for patients of all ages, with teeth of varied shapes and sizes
How does the process work?
Your teeth are digitally scanned using state-of-the-art imaging technology. Molds are created out of the digital scan and used to produce custom aligners that strategically apply pressure to shift teeth alignment.
What are Invisalign® clear aligners made of and what do they look like?
Invisalign clear aligners are made of a patented thermoplastic material called SmartTrack® created exclusively for Invisalign treatment.
Why should I feel confident about the Invisalign® treatment process?
Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible — people may not even notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break, sending you to your doctor for an emergency visit.
