What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is a new, comfortable, discreet way to achieve the straight smile of your dreams! Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth without the use of metal braces, which often irritate your mouth and affect your appearance. With Invisalign, your orthodontic treatment will be nearly invisible, as well as exceptionally comfortable.

How does Invisalign work?

Unlike traditional braces, which use metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of smooth, transparent plastic aligners to correct the alignment of your teeth. These aligners are custom made to fit your smile and to make calibrated changes until you achieve your ideal smile. You will switch aligners approximately every two weeks, and you will also visit Dr. Susan A. Vanstone at Great Grins on a regular basis to make certain your aligners are properly adjusting your smile.

In addition to being custom made and nearly invisible, Invisalign aligners are also removable. This allows you to easily remove your aligners whenever you need to eat, brush your teeth, or floss; however, be sure to wear your aligners at all other times so your smile is aligned properly.
