Invisalign® is a nearly invisible treatment to straighten your teeth! If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, we can provide you with these clear aligners to improve the appearance and function of your teeth without the need for bulky, unsightly metal brackets.
If you are interested in receiving discreet orthodontic treatment, Invisalign may be a great choice for you. As an alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign uses custom-made, computer-designed plastic aligners to shift your teeth into proper position. Each set of aligners is made to further correct your smile, and you will switch aligners about every 2 weeks to gently and gradually improve your dental alignment. We advise that you visit McQuiston Dental on a regular basis to ensure your smile is progressing and improving as planned.
Invisalign can treat the same orthodontic issues as braces, including:
- Crooked or overcrowded teeth
- Gapped or unevenly spaced teeth
- Problems with the bite, such as an open bite, overbite, underbite, or crossbite
There are many benefits to Invisalign treatment, including:
- A nearly invisible treatment
- A much more comfortable treatment
- The ability maintain a completely natural appearance during treatment
- Removable aligners so that you can eat, brush, and floss normally
We strongly recommend that you only remove your Invisalign aligners to eat, brush, and floss. They should be worn at all other times in order to keep your treatment on track and your teeth moving toward their proper alignment. We also recommend that you clean your aligners regularly – a dirty aligner can cause your teeth to appear stained, yellowed or otherwise discolored.
When you first visit our office for your consultation, Dr. Scott McQuiston will determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign. This treatment often benefits adults and other patients who prefer virtually invisible orthodontics, and is especially popular among teenagers and working professionls due to its discretion. Invisalign is discreet, comfortable, and removable. The aligners are easy to clean and do not interfere with mealtimes or brushing or flossing.
