Invisalign (Clear Braces)


From social lives to social media, teens today are facing more and more challenges when it comes to their self-esteem.


What is Invisalign?


Invisalign was developed at the University of the Pacific School (UOP) of Dentistry over a decade ago and is now used world wide with over a million successful smiles having been treated. ​Invisalign is a unique form of orthodontics that moves teeth fast, effectively and safely without rubber bands, wires and annoying brackets. Best yet the “clear trays” that move the teeth are virtually invisible.


What are the benefits of Invisalign?


Invisalign patients complete their treatment in an average of 14 months instead of the 2-3 year average with traditional braces.


The Cost


Costs for the average Invisalign case is about $4,300 which is at least $2,000 less than many traditional orthodontic cases.


Other Benefits


Both braces and Invisalign can help straighten teeth, they each have pros and cons. However, Invisalign provides you additional comfort and flexibility:


  • The trays are almost invisible

  • Shorter treatment duration in comparison to braces

  • Dental hygiene is easier to maintain

  • No discomfort from wires
