Invisalign® is a series of clear aligners that fit over the teeth and gradually straighten them. No braces or wires are used, and they are effective for mild to moderate orthodontic problems in patients whose growth is complete and teeth are fully erupted. Dr. William Adams, and Dr. Ashley Epperly, Dr. David Beck and Dr. Jennifer Staas are Invisalign Certified and can determine if you are a candidate for this type of treatment.
For years, orthodontists have used removable appliances for very limited treatment. Today, with the application of computer technology, the Invisalign System treats a broader range of cases with greater precision.
Invisalign® uses advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to transform your impressions into a custom-made series of clear, strong aligners. There may be as many as 48 in the series or as few as 12, depending on your individual treatment plan. You wear each set of aligners day and night for about two weeks, removing them so that you can eat, brush, and floss normally. Your visits to your orthodontist are no more frequent than with conventional braces. Invisalign treatment costs slightly more (15 to 20%) than conventional braces.
Invisalign® treats the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens.
Whether your smile needs minor improvements or something more extreme, Invisalign can help. Invisalign is successful at treating crowding or excess spacing of teeth. It can also be used to treat more complex cases such as overbites, underbites, and even crossbites. In fact, an experienced Invisalign-certified doctor can use Invisalign for all or part of almost any treatment plan.
Look your best during and after treatment.
Is maintaining your professional appearance important to you? Are you ever asked to speak during a meeting in the public? Because Invisalign is nearly invisible, most people won’t know you are straightening your teeth unless you tell them. After completing your treatment you’ll also enjoy the added assurance of being able to express yourself with confidence—without being embarrassed or insecure about your teeth.
