Collins Orthodontics is a 2017 Preferred Provider

If you are looking for an orthodontic treatment that is more discrete than traditional metal braces, Invisalign may be for you!  During your complimentary consultation with Dr. Collins,  you can determine if clear aligners are right for you. Even if you have previously been told that you were not a candidate, the technology has improved significantly and we encourage you to consider coming in for a complimentary smile exam.

WHAT IS IT?

Treatment uses a series of clear, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to straighten your teeth without everyone knowing. Invisalign clear aligners are crated using 3D computer imaging technology and have provided smiles for hundreds of thousands of patients.

THE PERKS

The nearly invisible aligners allow more flexibility for eating and drinking your favorite things and they’re also removable! Brushing and flossing are also easy since there are no brackets or wires to clean around, making them more comfortable than traditional braces. You can also view your own digital treatment plan own virtual treatment plan once you start so you can see how your smile will look when your treatment is complete.

HOW DOES INVISALIGN 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 their final positions. You'll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9 to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but varies from case to case.
