Invisalign is a breakthrough technology that straightens teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible, custom-molded aligners. These aligners replace the wires and brackets of the past, making orthodontic care practically unnoticeable to others. And, unlike braces of the past, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth.
The average Invisalign course of treatment takes about a year. During that time, you will change to a new set of aligners every two weeks. Each set of aligners gently moves your teeth one step closer to their optimal position until you develop a beautiful, healthy smile.
Unlike traditional braces, few people will even know you’re wearing Invisalign. That’s because each aligner is nearly invisible. So you can have the confidence you need while looking great at work, at school, and with friends. It’s a new type of orthodontics, helping you look good now to look great in the future!
A patented, award winning device invented by a dentist that uses vibration to block the sensation of pain. So when you get a shot, you don’t feel it. DentalVibe is gentle, fast and safe. There are no pills to take, no gas to inhale, no drowsy after-effects to worry about. Research shows that when vibration is simultaneously applied as a counter- stimulation to an anesthetic injection, its sensation reaches the brain first, blocking the feeling of pain.
