What is Invisalign?

Invisalign logo

Invisalign relies on a series of clear aligners to gently move your teeth into proper alignment. Each set of smooth plastic aligners is custom made from advanced computer images of your teeth. The trays are changed out every 1-2 weeks until your final smile goals are achieved. The aligners are removable but should be worn up to 22 hours a day for maximum benefit. Invisalign is comfortable, easy to use and virtually invisible to others! Your total treatment time will be determined by Dr. Kincer based on your level of orthodontic correction.

Is Invisalign Effective at Straightening Teeth?

While Invisalign doesn’t use the traditional approach of brackets and bands, it still relies on the tested 100-year old science of orthodontics. Yes, Invisalign is extremely effective in straightening teeth. The system uses gentle, pre-calculated forces at specific points in your treatment to create better alignment within your smile. Invisalign has the proven ability to correct the following types of orthodontic concerns:

  • Gaps
  • Crowding
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Misalignment

What Are the Aligners Made of?

Invisalign aligners are fabricated from a BPA-free thermoplastic material. This material is clear, thin and smooth for optimal patient satisfaction. Invisalign aligners are also custom-crafted for each individual patient to ensure a snug but comfortable fit.

What are the Primary Benefits of Invisalign?

Compared to traditional metal braces, the advantages of Invisalign are numerous and highly valued. Adults and teens using Invisalign can reap the following benefits:

  • Convenience of removing the aligners to brush, floss and eat
  • Freedom to enjoy all of your favorite foods, including those restricted while wearing braces
  • Less frequent office visits (usually only one visit every 6 to 8 weeks)
  • Highly discreet treatment as you transform your smile
  • Comfortable trays that don’t irritate your gums, cheeks and lips like brackets
  • Better oral health since you can brush and floss without the obstacle of brackets and bands
  • Advanced technology that allows you to view your final results before you even begin treatment

How Will Invisalign Fit My Lifestyle?

When it comes to finding an orthodontic treatment that offers a seamless fit for your lifestyle, Invisalign is a top choice. In fact, most patients feel as if they had to sacrifice very little while undergoing this smile-straightening process. You’ll have the freedom to take out your aligners to have a snack or drink. You may even remove them if you’d like a special night out or if you are a teenager playing an instrument in the band. Most of all, you won’t have to hide your smile during Invisalign treatment. Most people won’t even know you are wearing them! Go ahead and continue your day-to-day activities with Invisalign, and you’ll only be required to come in for a brief office visit once every 6 to 8 weeks.

  • We are beyond thankful for Dr. Kincer and his team!! Dr. Kincer is one of the most honest and conservative Orthodontist, which is a VERY rare find in the industry. We moved to south Florida about halfway through our treatment of 18 months and did not switch orthodontists; that’s how much Dr. Kincer means to us! Our daughter’s smile is absolutely beautiful!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the BEST at what he does!!! Both of my girls have been under Dr. Kincer's care, with exceptional results. They both began treatment at age 8, because of their tiny mouths that required Phase I and Phase II treatments. As a result of his recommended treatment plan, our girls will have exceptional teeth for life. Our family is incredibly thankful for Dr. Kincer's meticulous care that resulted in BEAUTIFUL smiles!!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the best. I am almost a year into my treatment and i have nothing but great things to say. He is so kind and his team is amazing. They are simply amazing and truly care for what their customers need and what their teeth need. I highly recommend Doctor Kincer to anyone looking for orthodontics.

  • Excellent orthodontist. Invisalign was the best money I ever spent on myself. Dr. Kincer is meticulous, thorough, has attention to detail, and fixed my flared teeth. Everyone is always complimenting my smile. He is always timely, professional, and his support staff (Jennifer and Lynn) are really caring. He is able to shave down teeth to make them aesthetically fit my smile and proportions. Dr. Kincer and Lynn really make sure their patients are comfortable-- especially when it comes down to removing attachments for invisalign and IPR, when your teeth are already sensitive. I recommended him to my brother and little cousin for orthodontic work and for their retainers :)
