Who can use Invisalign?
Patients with mild to moderate misalignment are the best candidates for Invisalign. Patients can also address bite issues, improving cross bite, overbite, and underbite quickly and easily.

How does Invisalign work?
The Invisalign system uses trays that gently move teeth into a more desirable position over time without the need for brackets and wires. Patients are required to wear the trays during the night and day for optimum results.

Patients are encouraged to use their Invisalign trays as advised for proper results and faster treatment times.
