What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® uses a series of clear aligners that are custom-molded to fit your teeth. The virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a smile you’ll be proud of. Teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced can create unhealthy conditions, including swollen gums, redness and pocketing, all of which are signs of periodontal disease.
As Invisalign® invisibly straightens your teeth, it can also do great things for the health of your mouth.
