What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of customized, clear aligners to straighten teeth. Invisalign aligners are:

  • Completely invisible – Invisalign aligners cannot be seen while you are wearing them! Friends, family members and co-workers may never even know you are wearing braces, unless of course you tell them!
  • Comfortable to wear – The aligners are made from a special plastic that has smooth, rounded edges so they won’t irritate your mouth and tissues like traditional braces often can.
  • Customized just for you – Your Invisalign aligners are customized to fit your mouth. Dr. Ford uses an iTero- 3-D computer imaging scanner- to replicate an exact impression of your mouth and teeth, then he customizes each aligner so that it fits your mouth, and over time gently moves your teeth into the proper position.
  • Removable –Unlike traditional metal braces, you can remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush your teeth, floss and for special occasions. There’s no need to change your lifestyle with Invisalign!
  • Effective – You will begin to notice a significant difference even before your treatment is complete! Most treatments are completed within one year; however this can vary from patient to patient. Aligners must be worn at least 22 hours each day to be effective.
