Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom made specifically for your teeth. By replacing each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.

Invisalign Teen® has been created for the image-conscious teenager. Now meaning, your teen doesn't have to worry about the look or hassle of traditional braces in their selfies or Instagram snaps.
Incognito braces are an advanced generation of brace that is hidden discreetly on the back of the teeth, not on the front like conventional ‘train tracks’.
Incognito braces are particularly popular with adults who do a lot of public speaking in their profession, actors and actresses and anyone who does not want people to notice their orthodontic treatment.
Functional appliances are used in growing children and adolescents where there is a disparity between the jaw sizes. They work by stretching the oral soft tissues and the elastic recoil of these tissues generates a force to move teeth and stimulate a redirection of jaw growth.
