Welcome to the world of digital Orthodontics! Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear aligners to comfortably give you a beautiful and confident smile. Most individuals, both teens and adults are candidates for this exceptional Orthodontic technique.
Here are just some of the benefits of Invisalign:
Comfort- there are no rough braces or pokey wires to annoy lips and cheeks. Additionally, tooth movement occurs in a gradual and steady fashion to achieve great results with optimal comfort.
Oral Hygiene- aligners are removed for brushing and flossing, presenting no obstacles for effective cleaning.
Diet- since aligners are removed during meals, no dietary restrictions are present. The cook of the household can still make all their favorite dishes.
Emergencies- there are few to no emergencies, since broken brackets and pokey wires are no longer present, therefore less school and work is missed. If an aligner is lost, you can most often move on to the next set.
Safety- Invisalign clear aligners are essentially a thin upper and lower mouth guard that does provide a protective layer over your teeth. This is beneficial both during sports as well as protection from nighttime grinding and tooth wear.
Of course, in addition to the above benefits, Invisalign is a very discreet way to achieve a beautiful smile utilizing the latest in technology. Doctors Krieg and Jezdimir have extensive experience utilizing this innovative technique and are Elite Invisalign providers.

Our practice now offers the iTero Impressionless Scanner in our office. The innovative iTero Impressionless Scanner is an advanced technology used to take oral impressions for Invisalign®, appliances and retainers. Impressionless scanning uses confocal imaging to digitally capture the shape of teeth and gums, while using real-time digital display, assuring accuracy and comfort.
iTero Impressionless Scanners have several benefits over traditional impressions. First, a patient’s movement does not distort the scan while eliminating the invasiveness and discomfort caused by impressions. Second, the real-time digital display of scans allows for immediate adjustment, assuring accurate scans the first time. Finally, the image quality of impressionless scans is superior to conventional impressions.
Acceledent® is a small hands-free device that uses softpulses (vibrations) that initiate rapid bone remodeling, thus making tooth movement faster and often more comfortable. You simply hold the mouthpiece between your teeth for 20 minutes daily, while you are wearing Invisalign or braces. Studies have found that treatment time can be reduced by 50%.
We are happy to also offer an additional vibration technology with Propel’s VPro5™! Used for just 5 minutes per day, the VPro5™ helps ensure that your clear aligners are fully seated.
Did you know?
Proper aligner seating is very important. Improperly seated aligners can slow treatment, forcing patients to backtrack to previous trays. In addition to prolonging treatment, consequences of incomplete aligner seating can include the need for additional stages and refinements to complete treatment.
