Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.
At North Court Family Dentistry, we are a digital impression office. We utilize the Itero Element 2, a scanning device that allows us to capture the anatomy of the teeth using a small camera. This new technology allows us to eliminate the need for messy impressions that many patients find uncomfortable. With our Itero Element, we are able to view a "simulation" of how your new smile could look in minutes!
The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 10 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for one week (for most patients) and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you'll be smiling like you never have before!

To ensure the best possible results, only a dentist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign. Invisalign is not intended for children and is not appropriate for every teen or adult. To see if Invisalign can help you achieve the smile you've always wanted, contact us to make an appointment.
