Invisalign is revolutionary clear aligner system for straightening crooked teeth and realigning bites. Invisalign is ideal for teen and adult patients looking for a discreet and comfortable way to straighten their mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. Invisalign eliminates the discomfort, stigma, and increased tooth decay associated with metal braces. The removable, clear aligners allow for thorough oral hygiene and do not irritate the soft tissues in the mouth.

“In my restorative practice, I use Invisalign® to improve esthetics, occlusion and periodontal health. It sets the stage for optimal restorative design—improving arch form, tooth alignment, occlusal landmarks, inter-occlusal space and gingival tissue levels.” -Dr. Doray

Invisalign & Advanced Dental Technology

Dr. Doray utilizes the 3M True Definition Scanner to provide quicker, simple and more accurate impressions for the fabrication of your Invisalign retainers. Digital impressions take less time and are less messy than traditional impression trays. The True Definition Scanner makes the impression phase more comfortable and less time consuming for our patients. Digital impressions are a “green” practice that eliminates excess materials and packaging and reduces cost. The impressions are highly accurate and reduce the time between getting your impressions and starting your treatment.
