        The Invisalign system is a series of clear aligners used to straighten teeth without the metal braces.

Why do you need to straighten teeth?

        Crooked teeth or misaligned bite can cause many health and esthetic challenges. If not treated, they may:
       1)Interfere with proper chewing.
       2)Make keeping teeth clean more of a challenge, increasing the risk of tooth decay, gingivitis and periodontitis, heart disease, stroke, and many other health problems.
       3)Strain the teeth, jaws, and muscles, increasing the risk of breaking teeth.
       4)Make people feel self-conscious about their appearance and affect their self-esteem.



What is Invisalign?

       The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you've always wanted. Using advanced 3-D computer imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom made for your teeth - and your teeth only - to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by Dr Shi based on your specific needs.


What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?

        Invisalign aligners are clear; no one may even notice that you're wearing braces, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others.
        Invisalign is removable. Unlike braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment simply by removing the aligners when you eat. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
        Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign does not use metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth. In addition, you'll spend less time in the doctor's chair , and more time out doing the things you love.
        Lastly, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment, so that you can preview how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.
