Why choose Invisalign over Braces?

Invisalign aligners are barely noticeable, you can play sports, eat and drink what you want all the while straightening your teeth.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a systems of clear plastic aligners that straighten your teeth.  Invisalign uses unique SMARTForce Technology to create a series of custom-made removable aligners for you and only you.  All you have to do is to wear these aligners, made of a virtually invisible plastic, over your teeth to gradually move them to the ideal position.

Before you even start with Invisalign treatment we do a 3D computer simulation for each patient.  This simulation will show you what we can do for your teeth. Everyone’s case is different and needs an individual plan depending on your circumstances.

The Video below is a 3D simulation (Clincheck) of a Patient of Dr Mendelsohns.  The video shows where there teeth started and what movement will occur over 20 sets of aligners.
