What is Invisalign?

Invisalign® uses a series of customized, clear aligners to straighten teeth, often faster and with fewer office visits than traditional braces. As the first aligner system in the orthodontic space, Invisalign® continues to be lightyears ahead of their competitors with constant advances in technology. Invisalign aligners are:

  • Completely invisible – Invisalign aligners cannot be seen while you are wearing them! Friends, family members and co-workers may never even know you are wearing them!
  • Comfortable to wear – The aligners are made from a special, proprietary plastic with smooth, rounded edges, so they won’t irritate your mouth and tissues like traditional braces often can.
  • Customized just for you – Your Invisalign aligners are customized to fit your mouth. Dr. Pawlak uses the iTero scanner to take a digital impression of your mouth. She then uses these models on the Invisalign treatment planning interface to create a treatment plan completely customized to you!
  • Removable  –Unlike traditional braces, you can remove your aligners to eat and drink as well as to brush and floss. There’s no need to change your lifestyle with Invisalign!
  • Effective – Invisalign is just as effective as braces when it comes to straightening your teeth. In fact, you will begin to notice a significant difference before your treatment is complete! 
  • Safe- Invisalign is only offered by certified providers. Discount mail-order aligners may sound appealing, but they can worsen your bite and cause gum & bone damage.
  • Versatile- With the most advanced technology available, Inivsalign can be used to treat a variety of complex issues including open bites, underbites, overbites, extraction cases and more.
