Your Clear Alternative to Braces: Invisalign®

Consider Invisalign “invisible braces” to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A consultation with Dr. Steckel can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

What is it?

Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing, so you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective.

Why would I want it?

Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss more easily throughout treatment. The aligners are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. No metal and wires usually means you spend less time in Dr. Steckel’s office getting adjustments.

Invisalign even lets you view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when treatment is complete.

How does it work?

You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Steckel prescribed.

You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts nine to 15 months, and the number of aligners worn is between 18 and 30, but both numbers will vary from patient to patient.
