Invisalign

If you know you or your teen need braces, but don’t love the appearance of traditional metal braces, Invisalign offers you a discreet and comfortable alternative. The Invisalign process employs a series of clear plastic trays to gently shift your teeth into the correct position.

The average adult patient wears these clear trays for 3-12 months to get the desired results. There won’t be wires and brackets obstructing your view of your teeth, so you can see the positive changes as they occur.

What You Can Expect

A Comprehensive Treatment Plan

Our doctors take digital x-rays, external photos, and impressions of your teeth, which the Invisalign technicians use to create digital 3D images of your teeth. We then use these images to map out a precise treatment plan. We’ll show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will move with each stage of treatment and let you know about how long your treatment will take.

Custom Aligners Based on Your Treatment Plan

Invisalign creates a series of custom-made, clear aligners following the treatment plan designed by our doctors. These aligners are made of a smooth, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your gums like traditional metal braces often do.

Gradually Straightened teeth

Your aligners will be traded out every 7-14 days depending on your needs, with each new set advancing you to the next stage of the treatment. You’ll come in to our office every 6 to 12 weeks so we can keep an eye on your progress. Invisalign Express also offers an effective, affordable, fast, and convenient way to straighten minor aesthetic concerns in three months or less.

Why Choose Invisalign?

Discrete

They’re nearly invisible. Others may not even notice you’re wearing Invisalign clear aligner trays. They can also be removed for important events. You don’t need to be memorialized in photos with a mouth full of metal.

Comfortable

Invisalign’s comfort starts in the office. Dental visits are scheduled every six weeks, less often than visits with traditional braces. In addition, the smooth plastic trays don’t irritate teeth and gums as metal wires and rubber bands often do.

Better for Oral Health

You can eat what you want without worry. Just pop out the trays when you want to order popcorn at the movies or bite into a juicy apple. You can also remove the trays to brush and floss as you normally would to maintain good oral health.

What Conditions can Invisalign Correct?

Invisalign treatment can fix a wide variety of problems with teeth and bite alignment. Mild cases of crooked teeth as well as much more difficult problems involving serious bite issues can be corrected with the clear plastic aligner trays. Following are some of the main conditions Dr. Parker can fix with Invisalign.

Overly crowded

Crowded teeth can be difficult to clean the teeth properly. Lack of proper oral care can promote tooth decay and cause a higher risk of gum disease.

Overbite

An overbite can cause excessive wear on the lower teeth, gum irritations and can also cause jaw problems.

Underbite

This occurs when the bottom teeth protrude beyond the upper teeth and can interfere with the normal function of front teeth and molars, and can lead to jaw problems.

Gaps in Teeth

Gaps can cause teeth to shift into the empty spaces and become loose because the dental arch is not as secure. Food and bacteria are easily trapped in gaps and increase the risk for tooth decay and gum disease.

Open Bite

An open bite can interfere with chewing and can cause speech impairment and jaw problems.

Crossbite

This is a symptom of jaw misalignment, which can cause worn-down teeth, gum disease or both.
