The Best Choice for Teeth Straightening
If you’re interested in correcting crooked or unevenly spaced teeth, we invite you to consider Invisalign®. These custom, clear aligners can help you achieve a straighter, healthier, and more attractive smile without the use of metal brackets or wires.
Invisalign® aligners are a great choice for patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for straightening their smile. The Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will gradually and gently move to their desired positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make sure that your smile is progressing as planned.
Contact Skyline Dental to learn more about Invisalign, and to schedule your consultation with our dentist, Dr. Leila Ebrahimpoor.

The Benefits of Invisalign®
Why Choose Invisalign® Over Traditional Braces?
To help you decide whether Invisalign® is right for you, we’ve outlined some of the main benefits of getting Invisalign® aligners compared to traditional braces:
Invisalign® aligners are super discrete and are much less noticeable than the eyesore of having wires and brackets with traditional braces.
When you need to, you can fully remove the aligners from your mouth.
Easier to Clean
You can easily brush your teeth and clean your aligners because they are removable – no need to work around brackets and wires.
Fewer Potential Problems
Because of their simplistic design, you don’t have to worry about potential problems like brackets or wires breaking.
Frequently Asked Questions
Invisalign is designed to slowly and gradually align your teeth in order to minimize discomfort. Results vary from patient to patient depending on how misaligned their teeth are. Some patients can start to notice a subtle difference in the alignment of their teeth within 10 to 12 weeks.
Chewies are only really needed when Invisalign aligners don’t fit correctly. This is common when switching to a new set of aligners. Invisalign chewies are specifically created for clear aligners so they will be very discrete and barely noticeable when they are used.
Invisalign aligners are intended to be worn every day for 22 hours a day. Not wearing the aligners for a day is not recommended as it will risk slowing down the alignment process meaning you will have to wear the aligners for a longer period of time.
Once the Invisalign treatment is complete, we have to ensure that your teeth don’t shift back to their old position. In order to keep this from happening, patients will be provided a retainer to wear for the first 3 to 6 months after completing the Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign is intended to be a permanent solution for straightening teeth. With that being said, it is important to practice proper oral care during and after the Invisalign treatment to get optimal results. Consult your dentist, follow their instructions, and notify them of any major developments throughout the course of your treatment.
