Dr. James Herbst is pleased to offer Invisalign® clear aligners to straighten your teeth and improve your smile. This nearly invisible orthodontic treatment works to enhance your appearance and your oral health in the most discreet manner possible, providing you with a treatment option that is both comfortable and effective.

If you are considering orthodontic treatment but want a more discreet option than traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners are the solution for you! This orthodontic treatment uses a system of custom-made clear plastic aligners to adjust the position of your teeth – no wires or brackets necessary! Invisalign treatment can correct all the same issues as braces, including:

  • Crooked and crowded teeth
  • Gapped and spaced teeth
  • Bad bites, such as overbites, open bites, underbites and crossbites

Your treatment will begin with an imaging process during which our dentist and team will capture high-quality images of your teeth and supporting structures. These images are then used to design your aligners, ensuring they fit perfectly. You will switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks, as directed by our dentist. Each set of aligners will make small adjustments to your teeth, gradually and gently moving them into their ideal positions.

Your aligners are made from smooth, clear plastic. This ensures that they are virtually invisible as well as comfortable to wear. We do recommend that you clean your aligners regularly, however, as dirty aligners can cause your teeth to appear discolored. Your aligners are also removable, which allows you to eat, brush and floss with ease. We recommend that you only remove your aligners for these activities – ideally, you should wear your aligners between 20-22 hours each day to ensure that your treatment progresses as planned. Invisalign clear aligners are available for patients of all ages.
