Do you wish you could straighten your teeth without bulky metal braces? Traditional braces can take away from the beauty of your smile and draw unwanted attention to your teeth. With Invisalign®, you can effectively straighten your teeth in a discreet manner – and often in less time than traditional orthodontics.
Using a series of clear plastic aligners, Invisalign® gently guides your teeth into their ideal position without the use of brackets or wires. In addition, since the Invisalign® aligners are removable, this innovative treatment allows you to avoid many of the hassles associated with traditional braces, including eating restrictions or difficulty while cleaning your teeth.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF INVISALIGN®?
Your Invisalign® aligners can be custom-designed to address a wide variety of orthodontic concerns such as tooth misalignment, crowded teeth, gaps, spaces, or bite issues. This state-of-the-art treatment can offer many benefits compared to traditional orthodontics, including:
- Clear aligners that are nearly invisible when worn
- Removable aligners that allow you to eat, drink, brush, and floss with ease
- Fewer dental appointments throughout the duration of your treatment
- Reduced overall treatment time
THE INVISALIGN® PROCESS
After Dr. Trichas determines you are a good candidate for Invisalign®, he will take impressions of your teeth to begin the customization of your aligners to address your individual needs and goals. Each set of custom aligners are worn for approximately two weeks and then replaced with a slightly modified set as your teeth gradually move into proper alignment. Though these aligners are removable for easy cleaning and maintenance, it is important that you wear them whenever you are not eating or cleaning your teeth. Patients typically begin to see noticeable results within the first six months of treatment. For most of our patients, treatment with Invisalign® is completed within 9-15 months.
