Clear Aligners (Invisalign) are an alternative to traditional braces and are designed to help guide teeth into their proper position. Using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner (Invisalign) trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten.
You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
The invisalign treatment process is as straightforward as it is technically advanced.
Once your Invisalign Provider has confirmed that you are eligible for treatment, they will take photos, X-rays and digital
scans, or a dental impression, of your teeth. These records will be used to create a ClinCheck 3D treatment plan, just for you.
After being custom-made and shipped to your Provider’s office, you’ll receive a series of aligners to wear every day and
change at home – on average every 1-2 weeks.*
You’ll visit your Provider around every 6-8 weeks to monitor progress and receive new aligners. After finishing your treatment plan, retainers will be required to maintain your new smile.

When you close your mouth and some of your upper teeth are sitting inside your lower teeth — rather than on the outside, like they normally would — your doctor calls this a crossbite.
