Invisalign hit the market about twenty years ago, and when it did, it changed orthodontics forever. Suddenly, people realized that treatment could be discreet, comfortable, and convenient. Here is what you need to know about Invisalign:
  • It is made from clear, medical-grade plastic, so it is invisible when worn.
  • The shape of the aligner dictates where force is directed, allowing the teeth to be moved quickly and precisely.
  • The aligners are removable, which makes eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing easy.
  • Patients are given multiple aligners at a time, so they can make adjustments by swapping them out; as a result there are fewer appointments.
  • The plastic is smooth, resulting in little to no irritation of the mouth. It is proven effective.

Clear and Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the backbone of orthodontic treatment. They were the first appliance that was widely used and considered effective in straightening teeth. Even today, they are still the most commonly used type of braces.


Messy, gloopy, uncomfortable impressions are quickly becoming a thing of the past thanks to the iTero scanner. This tool creates 3D digital scans that can be used to plan treatment, order appliances, and even determine the need for surgery. Here is what you should know about the iTero scanner.
  • It is an intra-oral scanner that captures thousands of small images of the dental anatomy, including the mouth, teeth, and gums.
  • These thousands of pictures are assembled into a highly accurate 3D model.
  • The laser used is completely safe, using low-grade radiation for imaging.
  • From start to finish, the process takes about 10 minutes.
  • Once done, the 3D model can be used to diagnose oral health issues and plan treatment.
