What is Invisalign®?

We are pleased to offer Invisalign invisible braces at Findlay Dental Arts. Invisalign is a modern way to get the straight, beautiful smile of your dreams without braces.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign uses a series of clear, smooth plastic aligners to straighten your teeth, giving you the beautiful smile you deserve. Your Invisalign aligners will be custom made to fit your smile comfortably, moving your teeth to their ideal positions. Your Invisalign-certified dentist in San Francisco, California, Dr. Findlay, may suggest Invisalign if you are interested in correcting the following orthodontic problems:

  • Problems with the bite, such as overbite, underbite, open bite, or crossbite
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Gaps and spaces between the teeth

As you switch sets of aligners approximately every two weeks, your smile will be guided to its proper alignment. You will also visit our office about every six weeks so we can check on the progress of your treatment. The average treatment time with Invisalign is 9-15 months, with an average of 18-30 aligners worn during the treatment.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign is a wonderful, discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. Dr. Findlay is an Invisalign preferred provider, so you can rest assured that you will receive the best possible care and attention at our dental office. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you will be able to eat, drink, floss, and brush as normal. Invisalign requires fewer visits to our office for adjustments and checkups, meaning that you can spend less time in the chair and more time enjoying your smile.
