Invisalign by Align Technology

Invisalign is a revolutionary system involving clear aligners that effectively straighten teeth over time. Unlike traditional orthodontics, which require metal braces, Invisalign trays are nearly invisible. That’s why many teenagers and adults prefer this subtle system for correcting their misaligned or crooked teeth.

The Invisalign system by Align Technology is the most advanced clear aligner system, with over 12.2 patients worldwide. Dr. Amy Shoumer is an Invisalign-trained dentist with all the tools and experience needed to effectively use their system of aligners to enhance the smiles of her patients.

How Invisalign Works

The Invisalign system is progressive. Dr. Amy Shoumer examines the current structure and alignment of your teeth and creates a goal for the final, beautiful, and straight appearance of your smile.

To help you achieve your best final look, you will wear a series of Invisalign trays. Each tray will help move your teeth slightly for a week before you switch to a new tray, which continues to alter your teeth slightly more.

The complete process usually lasts for less than two years but may take as little as six months, depending on how much the alignment of your teeth needs to be corrected.

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign is nearly invisible, which makes it a desirable alternative to metal braces. The trays are also comfortable to wear, with no painful metal pieces or wires. Patients usually have no trouble wearing the trays for the recommended 22 hours a day.

Additionally, because the trays are removable, it’s very easy to keep your teeth clean with good oral hygiene habits, including routine brushing and flossing.

Finally, straightening your teeth is important not just for your outer appearance but also for your oral health. Misaligned teeth, for example, can be challenging to keep clean and may even impact your ability to chew your food properly. 

Invisalign helps you achieve a beautiful and functional smile, so you feel confident and stay healthy.
