Invisalign for Straight Teeth

Invisalign® is the 21st century way to straighten your teeth without conventional braces. These days the only people who need to know that you are wearing an oral appliance are you and your dentist thanks to the remarkable invisible solution to wires and brackets.

If you want straighter teeth, Invisalign® can help. Rotated, tipped, and crooked teeth along with small spaces between the teeth can all be fixed with the clear alternative to conventional braces.

With Invisalign® you can have a beautiful new smile in as little as six months with the average time being 12 to 18 months, however, there are a few other reasons that you may want to consider clear plastic aligners for straight teeth.

Time Factor

Conventional braces need to be worn up to two years. With Invisalign®, you don’t have to wait months or even years to have a Hollywood Smile. The clear plastic alternative to braces requires dental visits every six weeks. With conventional braces, you need to see your dentist every couple of weeks for adjustments.

Oral Health

Because old school braces cannot be removed, it makes it difficult to brush. Invisalign® is removed when you eat, brush and floss, making you less susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease.


Conventional braces are uncomfortable. Wires and brackets need to be adjusted, which can cause pain. Invisalign® aligners are made from clear plastic and are very comfortable; in fact, you may even forget that you are wearing them.

If Dr. Schaefer gives you to the go ahead for straighter teeth, pictures and impressions will be taken of your teeth. Once your aligners are ready, you will take them home. You may receive anywhere between 11 and 31 sets of aligners for your customized Invisalign® plan.

Having a beautiful smile is easy with Invisalign®. Call or click and schedule your appointment for straighter teeth with Dr. Schaefer today.
