The easy way to improve your smile.
Invisalign is proven technology designed to give you the smile you’ve always wanted, without the pain and anxiety associated with metal braces.
Invisible. Comfortable. And Removable.
To help you get a more beautiful smile, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth. You wear a set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each set of aligners with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move until they reach the position the doctor has prescribed for you. The average treatment time is about a year.
Less treatment time.
An average Invisalign course of treatment takes about a year. At regular intervals, you’ll receive a new set of custom-molded clear aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you, determined by the doctor for your course of treatment
Clear. And comfortable.
Since Invisalign is practically invisible, there’s no unwarranted attention to your mouth. In fact, very few people will notice at all – unless you tell them. They’re comfortable to wear and remove easily when you eat, brush, and floss.
Is Invisalign for Me?
Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help. It’s successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, underbites and even crossbites.
Made to fit your lifestyle, not change it.
Because Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to position and straighten teeth, you can keep your active lifestyle during treatment. Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners have no metal bands or wires to irritate your mouth. So go ahead and be as active as you like. Since Invisalign is removable, just take the clear aligners out for special events or if you’re going to indulge in a sticky, gooey snack.
Look your best during and after treatment.
Of course you want to look great, at work, at school, with friends. Maybe you speak to groups or conduct meetings. You still can. Because Invisalign is clear and nearly invisible, most people will never know you’re straightening your teeth – unless you tell them. And when your course of treatment has ended, you can feel more confident, whether in front of people or not. You’re going to have a stunning smile.

Aligners are clear and look similar to tooth-whitening trays, but are custom-made for a better fit to move teeth. Some orthodontists and dentists have referred to them as “contact lenses for teeth.”
For years, orthodontists and dentists have used removable appliances for limited treatment. Today, with the application of computer technology and custom manufacturing, Invisalign treats a broader range of cases with greater precision.
Align Technology Inc, the company that manufactures Invisalign, was founded in 1997. Since then, Align has manufactured over 50,000,000 aligners and 1,780,000 patients have been in treatment.
Worldwide, almost 2,180,000 patients have been treated with Invisalign. The number grows daily.
While Invisalign can be used with virtually any treatment philosophy, specific training is needed. All orthodontists and dentists interested in treating patients with Invisalign must attend training before cases will be accepted from their office. Close to 30,000 orthodontists and dentists worldwide are certified to use Invisalign.
Like brackets and arch wires are to braces, Invisalign aligners move teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on the teeth. The principal difference is that Invisalign not only controls forces, but also controls the timing of the force application. At each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, and these movements are determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system. Invisalign can help to treat a variety of orthodontic concerns including teeth which are crooked, crowded or with gaps – but because it is clear, removable and comfortable, it won’t interfere with your life.
Commonly referred to as an “over bite” and known to dental professionals as “overjet”, an overbite occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. The causes for this may be either genetic, or over development of the bone that supports the teeth. Leading to gum problems and possible irritation with wear on the lower teeth. Painful jaw and joint problems may follow.
Protruding lower teeth past the front teeth, under bite is usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw or overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both. This may result in painful jaw and joint problems. Missing upper teeth can also be an issue that can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars which can lead to tooth wear. Realignment of teeth can remedy this before it becomes an issue and a problem that your Oradi dentist in Northampton can remedy with near invisible braces.
Occurring when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned, cross bite causes upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and may effect both the front and sides of the mouth. This issue can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease, and even bone loss.
Simply put, this occurs when your mouth becomes overly crowded and the number of teeth are unable to fit normally in the jaw. If left untreated, it may prevent the normal function of the teeth and also lead to gum disease.
Irregular continued growth of the jaw bone, when teeth are missing, or other teeth shifting due to extra space, wide spacing issues in teeth can cause some periodontal diseases. Clear braces are an easy to use solution to the problem.
