Invisalign provides an attractive alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. It’s a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth. This treatment uses clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to gradually align them over time.
You can easily remove the aligners for teeth cleaning and eating, but you want to wear them for at least 20 hours per day for optimal results. While you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, the Invisalign aligners should remain in your mouth.

Dr. Workman may recommend an alternative treatment if you have major orthodontic and alignment issues. Schedule an appointment to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
First, Dr. Workman examines your teeth to determine whether Invisalign is right for you. To fully examine your teeth, she needs to either create a physical impression of them or digitally scan them into 3-D images. Dr. Workman uses these to develop a unique treatment plan for you.
Then Dr. Workman customizes clear, plastic aligners that fit your teeth. As you wear them, the aligners smoothly shift your teeth into perfect alignment. To keep your teeth moving in the right direction, she occasionally makes you new aligners. Until your smile is perfect, this process continues.
Six Month Smiles® is an option for straightening the most visible teeth when you smile. It’s a short-term solution that can give you the smile you want, only faster.
