Every Treatment Journey Is an Individualized Experience

The Invisalign® system uses a succession of personalized, removable plastic aligners, which you update approximately every two weeks. With each successive set of aligners meticulously adjusted, your teeth undergo a gentle and gradual repositioning process, ultimately achieving your ideal, radiant smile.

Our skilled dentists expertly craft your unique treatment plan by leveraging Invisalign’s patented ClinCheck® technology. This advanced software empowers them to meticulously refine your custom aligners, precisely tailoring them to enhance your treatment outcomes.

Clarity on your future smile

Invisalign® dispels the uncertainties of teeth straightening through its cutting-edge technology. In your initial consultation, we employ the Invisalign iTero® Element scanner to capture a precise 3-D image of your teeth. This revolutionary tool empowers us to craft comprehensive previews of your smile, ensuring you’re well-informed about the transformation that awaits you throughout your treatment journey.

Precision in Pressure Management

Central to the Invisalign® tooth straightening system is applying meticulously controlled pressure on your teeth. This pressure is intentionally calibrated to be both gentle and unwavering. Such an approach guarantees a remarkably comfortable journey as your teeth gently and steadily transition into a more optimal alignment.

Innovative Material for Invisalign® Trays

While your Invisalign® aligner trays may resemble ordinary plastic, they are crafted from SmartTrack®, an FDA-approved, medical-grade thermoplastic. This advanced material is free from latex, gluten, and any trace of bisphenol-A or bisphenol-S, exemplifying our commitment to your health and safety throughout your treatment journey.

Swift Results with Invisalign®

Clear Dental AlignersOpting for teeth straightening with Invisalign® ensures a rapid transformation that exceeds expectations. Your desired smile can become a reality up to 50% faster than the timeline associated with traditional metal braces. This remarkable acceleration is attributed to Invisalign® aligner trays, which can gently shift your teeth by up to one-third of a millimeter every two weeks. Throughout your treatment journey, you wear your personalized aligners for 20-22 hours each day, contributing to your treatment’s expeditious and gratifying progress.

Invisalign® for a Healthier You

Discover an unexpected benefit of Invisalign® – it can help you achieve a slimmer waistline. While your removable aligners conveniently allow you to enjoy meals and beverages, it’s crucial to prioritize cleaning your teeth and aligners before reinserting them. This additional step might encourage you to reconsider that afternoon snack. Additionally, we encourage staying well-hydrated while wearing your Invisalign® aligners by consuming abundant water. By following this practice, you can ensure the freshness and moisture of your mouth while also enjoying extra benefits for weight loss.

Efficient and Seamless Office Visits

Throughout your Invisalign® treatment journey, the attentive J Street Dental Group team conducts regular progress assessments approximately every six weeks, ensuring your trajectory toward success. Thanks to the Invisalign® system’s wire-free and bracket-free design, appointments are both swift and uncomplicated, enabling you to quickly resume your daily activities with minimal interruption.

Invisalign®: Effective for All, Even After Braces

Whether you are wearing or have experienced braces, transitioning to the discreet Invisalign® aligners is typically seamless. Our experienced team at J Street Dental Group collaborates closely with you during your consultation to ascertain the potential of Invisalign® in achieving your desired flawless smile.

Invisalign®: A Celebrity-Approved Smile Enhancer

Invisalign® isn’t just a favorite among dental professionals; it’s also a sought-after treatment for numerous individuals, including celebrities, aiming to elevate their smiles. Since its debut in 2000, Invisalign® has captured the attention of notable figures like Justin Bieber, Tom Cruise, Eva Longoria, and Oprah Winfrey, who appreciate its discreet approach to teeth straightening.

Invisalign®: A Versatile Solution for Complex Cases

Invisalign®’s ingenious design extends its capabilities to tackle many intricate dental issues. Whether addressing gaps between teeth, managing to crowd, aligning overbites, underbites, open bites, or crossbites, Invisalign® excels. Suppose you find yourself in any of these categories. In that case, the odds are high that Invisalign® holds the potential to deliver remarkable results for you.

Clear Dental AlignersWhile Invisalign® is a remarkable solution, it’s important to note that it may not be suitable for addressing significant jaw issues or severely rotated teeth. Additionally, the effectiveness of removable aligners might be impacted if you’ve undergone dental procedures like crowns, veneers, or bridgework.

They offer a comprehensive dental examination to ensure you’re an ideal candidate for Invisalign®. If Invisalign® isn’t the perfect fit for your circumstances, the team can expertly outline an alternative treatment strategy that aligns better with your unique needs.
