Invisalign - The Clear Alternative to Braces

Invisalign Clear AlignerInvisalign® 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. Dr. Bivens is able to treat a patient of any age with Invisalign, starting at 7 years old at up!

Many patients and parents choose Invisalign for the following reasons:

  1. Invisalign requires about half the total number of visits to the orthodontist compared to braces – we know that you have a busy schedule and we want to help make orthodontic treatment as convenient as possible
  2. Invisalign will never cause an emergency appointment like a broken bracket or a poking wire with braces – again, this reduces the total number of visits, especially visits that are needed on short notice
  3. Invisalign is perfect for anyone who is active or plays sports – the aligners actually protect your teeth, which is the opposite of braces that require a special mouth guard to be worn
  4. Invisalign is removable, so you brush and floss your teeth the same way that you do now – this is very different from braces that require a great deal of extra time brushing and flossing
  5. You can eat anything with Invisalign – this is much more convenient than patients with braces who have to avoid sticky and hard foods to make sure that they don’t break any brackets

Clearly Different

The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with the 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. Each aligner is usually worn for a week 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!
