Start smiling more. Choose the nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth.
Nearly everyone who needs straighter teeth can be treated with Invisalign. Alone or as part of a combined treatment plan for adults and mature teens. Get the beautiful smile you've always wanted. Invisalign® is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners.
The latest technology makes it possible. In both Dental Practices and clinical research nationwide, Invisalign has been proven effective at straightening teeth. Thousands of doctors have already been trained and certified with Invisalign, and these certified doctors treat using Invisalign. Upon examination, Dr. Ruintan decides if Invisalign is right for you. He will write a treatment plan, and take an impression of your teeth, which will be submitted, to Invisalign. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign translates Dr. Ruintan's Instructions into a series of precisely customized aligners. Each set is worn about two weeks, moving your teeth gradually - week by week, millimeter by millimeter until you've achieved the intended result. Benefits: No wires and brackets . . . Invisalign is comfortable. Because it's removable, eating, brushing, and flossing is no problem.
