Why Invisalign instead of metal braces?
Instead of metal braces, Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, comfortable aligners that give you more freedom during the process of straightening your teeth. Made using state-of-the-art 3D computer imaging technology, Invisalign has been proven just as effective as traditional metal braces for straightening teeth.
In addition to being invisible, the aligners are easily removable. You can eat and drink what you want and brush or floss as often as you want. With no irritating metal used during treatment, Invisalign is also more comfortable. You spend less time getting adjustments and less time visiting the dentist.
During treatment, you’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure progress. The total treatment time typically lasts from 9 to 15 months. The total number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both numbers can vary greatly from one person to another.
Why Dr. Glazer?
Dr. Melissa Glazer is an Invisalign Elite Preferred Provider. That designation means she is among the top 1% of all Invisalign providers throughout North America. Her experience and skill mean she can treat more people – including many of those who have been told that they are not good candidates for Invisalign.
Invisalign is great for adults who want to straighten their teeth almost invisibly and discreetly. They can wear the aligners at home, at work and at play until their teeth are straight and beautiful.
