What does your smile say about you?… Whether we like it or not, our smile tells others a lot about us – the good and the bad. Eighty percent of us suffer from some level of malocclusion or crowding that not only leaves us embarrassed to smile, but often results in decay, bone loss, and ultimately tooth loss.
The Connection Between Your Health and Misaligned teeth
Misaligned teeth can lead to premature wear, tooth loss, gum disease, and the buildup of bacteria that can lead to bigger problems, including heart disease.
Painful Gums and Gum Disease
Poorly aligned teeth can put stress on teeth and the jawbone, this can lead to gum disease, receding gums, bone loss, tooth loss, sensitivity and chipped teeth.
When your teeth are properly aligned, the health benefits are clear; healthier gums, improved hygiene, and less wear and trauma.

Forget everything you’ve heard about teeth straightening. Invisalign lets you get the smile you always wanted without bands, brackets, or wires in less time.
A clear alternative
By using a series of clear removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every two weeks or 3 to 5 days with Dr. Berik’s acceleration treatment, and your teeth will move little by little, week by week until they have moved to the final position Dr. Berik has prescribed. Comfortable to wear, the aligners are also removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss as usual.
Less treatment time
Start by coming in for a comprehensive evaluation by Dr. Berik. She will use Invisalign’s advanced 3-D computer-imagining technology to depict your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.
A typical Invisalign case takes about a year from start to finish. However, Dr. Berik is specially trained in Accelerated Orthodontics and she can shorten your treatment time to 4-6 months with this exciting technology. You’ll see Dr Berik every six weeks to see how you’re progressing. Every few visits, you’ll be given additional aligners to continue your treatment.
Invisible. And comfortable
Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution. So you won’t draw undue attention to your mouth while in treatment. In fact, virtually no one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell. Comfortable to wear, our aligners are also removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss as usual.
Is Invisalign for me?
Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign is the solution of choice. It’s successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, underbites and even crossbites. With straight teeth you will have a correct bite which in is the answer for longevity, health and beauty of an enduring smile.
