Show the World Who You Really Are!
Invisalign makes it easy to straighten teeth without bands, brackets, or wires.
A Clear Alternative
Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution so you can smile during as well as after treatment. In fact, virtually no one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before you eyes. Change them about every two weeks and your teeth will move—little by little---towards the smile you have always wanted.
Invisible Removable Comfortable
Invisalign is comfortable to wear and it doesn’t require you to change you busy lifestyle. You visit Dr. Tenaglia every month or two to check progression and get new aligners. Average treatment time is only about a year. Because aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favorite food while brushing and flossing normally to keep you teeth and gums healthy.
Invisalign Has Been Proven Effective in Dental Practices Worldwide
Ask Dr. Tenaglia how Invisalign can work for you. Dr. Tenaglia is a certified Invisalign dentist and offers free consultations. Hundreds of thousands of people have already discovered Invisalign. Maybe it's time you were one of them.
Your custom-made smile program
Your treatment plan begins with a consultation with an experienced Invisalign provider. During that consultation, you and Dr. Tenaglia will discuss the options to treat your particular issue. Once Dr. Tenaglia confirms that your issue can be corrected with the Invisalign system, she will write a detailed treatment plan that determines how each of your aligners will change throughout your program. When you begin treatment, you'll wear each set of aligners in approximately two-week increments. The aligners gently move your teeth into position, and at the end of each two-week period, you "graduate" to the next set of custom-aligners.
Before you schedule your consultation with an Invisalign provider, it's a good idea to take the self-assessment to figure out if the Invisalign system is for you. Then take the results with you to your initial consultation.
So how long will it take to finish your treatment? For most adults, treatment time is just under one year. Of course, your total treatment time depends on your particular situation, so it's important to speak with Dr. Tenaglia about how your situation and goals fit into an Invisalign treatment program.
Not only is Invisalign versatile, helping to correct a broad range of dental and orthodontic issues, but it really works. And there are over half a million smiles to back that up. But a confident smile isn't the only benefit of correcting your dental issues with custom-made Invisalign aligners—your health can be positively impacted as well.
Overly crowded teeth: This occurs when there is simply a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can cause dental decay, an increase in chances of gum disease, and can prevent the normal function of teeth.
Crossbite: This occurs when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and/or the sides of the mouth. This issue can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease, and bone loss.
Overbite: What people commonly refer to as an "overbite" is known to dental professionals as "overjet." It occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. It's typically caused by either genetics, bad oral habits, or over development of the bone that supports the teeth. This issue can lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth and can cause painful jaw and joint problems.
Your Invisalign treatment will consist of a series of aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. And since your Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only, with a plan devised by Dr. Tenaglia, you know you'll end up with a smile that truly fits.
