Invisalign® offers an alternative to traditional metal braces by using clear aligner trays to help gradually straighten your teeth. Most of the time, people assume this is a cosmetic therapy, and they’re not wrong – Invisalign can help move teeth into a beautiful, perfect, arch. At CPW Dentistry, we believe the benefits of Invisalign are more than just cosmetic.
Invisalign can correct a host of problems caused by “malocclusion” a.ka. a misaligned bite. The literal Latin translation is “bad bite” but we don’t want you to feel bad about it. Your misalignment may be inherited, or stem from losing teeth early or having an accident. Malocclusion isn’t always obvious. Even if your front teeth may look completely straight, the teeth in your upper and lower jaws might not meet properly. Here are some examples of how misalignment can cause issues and how correcting those issues can lead to healthier teeth:
Other clear aligner systems may attract attention with lower prices but with Invisalign treatment, you get the most advanced clear aligner system in the world and individual attention from your provider and our team.
Your Treatment Coordinator will work with you to determine the very best financial arrangement for you, based on your budget, credit history, and treatment plan.

CPW Dentistry's very own hygienist Cailin recently completed Invisalign treatment, so we asked her a few questions:
Q: What's something you were surprised to learn when you started treatment?
A: That if I forgot to put my trays in right after eating, they would feel super tight again from my teeth starting to shift so quickly.
Q: What was the most challenging part of the treatment for you?
A: Brushing my teeth after eating before I put my trays in (you have to do this to help prevent cavities) and then being offered a snack the minute my trays were back in!
Q: Are you happy you chose to do Invisalign?
A: Yes! I always liked my smile, even before I started Invisalign, but afterward, I couldn't believe how big my smile seemed! I just wish I'd done it sooner.
