Invisalign: Clear & Invisible Braces
Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces. This treatment uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners to gradually move your teeth into alignment. These aligners are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear and easy to remove.
Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only and is worn for two weeks before moving on to the next. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your Orthodontist.
Invisalign aligners are removable, which means you can eat, drink and floss with ease.

How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign aligners move teeth with an appropriate placement of controlled movement on the teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign not only controls the amount of movement per aligner, but also the timing of the movement. So at each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, as determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system that moves teeth into the desired prescribed position.
Is Invisalign as effective as braces?
Our Orthodontists will provide you with the best treatment option for your individual case. Most of the time, Invisalign or braces will be a suitable option and you will be able to choose your preference. In a small amount of cases, the Orthodontist may advise one option over the other.
Can anyone have Invisalign?
The majority of orthodontic cases are eligible to be treated with Invisalign. However, there are some complicated cases that cannot be treated with Invisalign. Please contact Lifestyle Orthodontics for an initial exam. We would love to help you determine if Invisalign is the right option for you.
