Crooked and misaligned teeth affect not only your appearance but the health of your teeth. If you have orthodontic issues, clear alignments may be right for you! Invisalign® aligners gradually correct misalignment and straighten teeth. Unlike traditional braces, this treatment avoids metal brackets and wires. Instead, patients wear a series of clear, plastic appliances that fit over the teeth. These are removable and are custom fitted to the patient. About every two weeks, patients will replace the aligner with a new one until the end of their treatment. Over time, slight changes in the aligners slowly shift and move the teeth into their proper positions. Our dentists will monitor you throughout this process, and you will have regular checkups with Dr. Akram Sannaa amd Dr. Azin Ghesmati.

What are some of the benefits of Invisalign® treatment?
- Because they are made of a clear plastic, the aligners are nearly invisible while being worn.
- The aligners can be removed for eating and drinking, brushing and flossing, or during special events.
- The plastic aligner is custom made to fit your smile comfortably using SmartTrack material.
- Because there are no brackets or wires, the appliance won’t cause sores or irritate the gums or soft tissue inside the mouth.
