One of the more popular orthodontic treatment solutions is Invisalign. Our office is a Preferred Provider for Invisalign and we have deep experience with their products. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Dr. Lachica and Dr. Patterson will determine if your bite can be adequately addressed with Invisalign. For those who do not qualify for Invisalign treatment and who desire a more aesthetic treatment appliance, we utilize clear ceramic braces to diminish the visibility of appliances during treatment.

Invisalign® uses a set of clear aligners to give you a smile of which you can be proud. We know that you will probably have some questions, so here is a list of frequently asked questions
Will Invisalign® fit my lifestyle?
Many people don’t want braces because of the inconvenience. However, Invisalign® is perfect for anyone and everyone.
They are removable so you can take them out and eat whatever you want. You can also take them out to brush your teeth so that you don’t have to worry about missing any spots. This will keep your teeth healthy through your whole procedure.
You can still do whatever you want when you wear your Invisalign® aligners. You can go to fancy places and no one will know. You can still work, go to school, play sports, and do whatever else you enjoy doing. You can even smile without worrying about others noticing your braces. They won’t even know.
You won’t have to have follow-up appointments as often, though each treatment plan is different. However, you won’t be going to the orthodontist’s office quite as often as you would if you were wearing braces.
What is Invisalign®?
The Invisalign® system is the clear way to straighten your teeth and give you a smile of which you can be proud. It uses advanced, 3D computer-imaging technology to create your whole treatment plan from where your teeth are now to where they need to be.
Then clear aligners are custom made for your teeth. The aligners will start to move your teeth in the right direction. Every two weeks, you will get new aligners which will move your teeth a little bit more until we achieve the desired result.
Since each mouth is different, treatment times will vary depending on your needs.
What are the benefits of Invisalign®?
Since Invisalign® is clear, you can get the results you deserve without anyone even knowing you are getting treated. You can still perform all of your normal daily tasks while simultaneously working on your smile.
You can also remove the aligners when you eat so you can still eat whatever you want. You also don’t have to worry about your oral health. You can remove the aligners whenever you brush and floss your teeth.
Invisalign® is also more comfortable than traditional braces since the aligners are custom made for your mouth. Traditional braces often cause irritation.
With Invisalign® braces, you will spend less time at the dentist’s office because you won’t have to have as many follow-ups.
Using the latest technology, we can show you exactly where you are and what your mouth will look like when you are done. Many people enjoy seeing a visual before they get started.
How many patients are in Invisalign® treatment?
More than 3,000,000 patients have invested in Invisalign® clear aligners, and more get started every day.
