In the past if you wanted to have straight teeth, you needed to go through the process of having your teeth banded and bracketed so you could wear traditional wire-braces. Improvements in technology, however, have allowed us, in many cases, to move teeth without the need for braces.
The concept behind Invisalign is straightforward – we first determine with you where we want your teeth to be when we are done with your treatment. And in order to reach this goal, you wear a consecutive series of aligners that each serve to carefully move your teeth into the proper position. The only thing you have to ‘wear’ is the small, esthetic, temporary bondings we add to your teeth in order to hold the aligners in place.
Treatment time with Invisalign can vary, but generally speaking, treatment is completed faster with Invisalign vs. treatment with traditional braces. Please recognize, however, that the duration of your Invisalign treatment is ultimately dependent upon your specific treatment needs; moving more teeth with more complex movements will naturally take longer than moving fewer teeth with simple movements.
Invisalign is designed for correcting minor teeth rotations, shifts, spacing problems and crowding. And while there are many, many use cases for it, we can’t use Invisalign in cases where significant and complete movement of all the teeth is indicated.
One of the best features of using Invisalign is that the aligners are clear, so that people won’t know that you are in orthodontic treatment, and when you smile for a picture, you won’t see metal braces!

I went in and was immediately put at ease. They were willing to stay late to make sure my exam was through and a tentative plan was put into place. When I returned the following day to see the hygienist, a definitive plan was put into place and the doctor and staff made sure I understood each step and what was needed.
I don't really like to go to the Dentist but the staff and the Dr are awesome!! Very kind, happy and professional!! The Dr is very gentle and communicative; as he tells you what he is going to do in detail and is a warm, caring person.
Folks, if you're looking for a new dental practice...look NO further! My 1st phone call to schedule a consultation was met with a kind and caring person who seemed genuinely concerned with the problems and pain I was experiencing. Though her schedule was full, she managed to fit me in to see the dentist.
