Treatment That Fits Your Life
Consider treatment with Invisalign® or our custom clear aligners to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted—without braces.
The Invisalign system is made of clear acrylic aligners that fit over your teeth and are designed to straighten your smile. They’re removable, making it easier to eat, drink, brush and floss.
The Clear Aligner Process
Invisalign is much more comfortable than traditional metal bracket braces and can give you stunning results.
We'll take photos and X-rays to create a 3-D image of your mouth. We make your first set of custom-fitted aligners from these images, and then we’ll start straightening your teeth from there.
You’ll probably wear Invisalign aligners for 9–15 months and typically use 18–30 sets during your treatment.
You wear the trays for about 22 hours a day but can remove them to brush your teeth and eat. Based on your individual needs, you will wear several sets of trays throughout your orthodontic treatment and will start to notice a change in just a few months!
A Modern Approach
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth. It uses a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth.
Wearing the aligners will gently move your teeth into place little by little, based on the exact movements your orthodontist plans for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners about every two weeks until your treatment is complete.
You’ll get a great smile without a treatment that gets in the way of your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth. See more at the Invisalign site.
This nearly-invisible option to straighten your teeth is truly changing the way people see orthodontic treatment. Our Wow! Smiles team has a lot of experience treating patients with Invisalign, and we’re excited to offer this technology to our patients.
Differences Between Invisalign & Braces
Unlike traditional braces, smooth plastic Invisalign aligners don't have metal components that can irritate your mouth. Because they’re removed when you eat, you won't have to watch what you eat like you would when wearing braces – bring on the popcorn and peanuts.
In fact, you’ll need to take out your aligners to eat or drink anything other than water. You need to make sure you’re willing to do that before you decide on Invisalign clear aligners.
To prevent staining, you’ll need to clean your teeth before putting the aligners back on after you eat.
Of course, brushing and flossing are much easier than with traditional braces since you don’t have to work around any brackets and wires.
WOW! Smiles™ Custom Clear Aligners
Your clear aligner treatment is customized, so it’s effective and efficient for your particular needs.
Your doctor will select the level of treatment and the aligner laboratory that is appropriate for you.
Responsibilities of Aligners
It’s essential to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day so they can do their job and straighten your teeth. But, with Invisalign or our customized clear aligners, you can remove your aligners for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, you will generally need to wear a retainer after Invisalign treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
