If you're looking for a way to straighten your teeth without the hassle of traditional metal braces, Invisalign may be the perfect solution for you. Invisalign is a type of clear aligner that gradually shifts your teeth into their correct positions. Not only are they virtually invisible, but they're also removable, making them a more convenient and comfortable option.
However, not all Invisalign providers are created equal. That's why we highly recommend Dr. Doug and Dr. Raff for your Invisalign treatment. Both of them are Invisalign Gold Providers, meaning they have a wealth of experience and expertise in using this technology to help their patients achieve straighter teeth.
What's more, both of them have diplomas in aesthetic and restorative dentistry. This means that they not only have the technical skills to straighten your teeth, but they also understand how to create a beautiful and harmonious smile that complements your facial features.
With Dr. Doug and Dr. Raff's expertise in Invisalign and aesthetic dentistry, you can trust that your smile will not only be straighter, but also more beautiful and healthier than ever before.
Don't let crooked teeth hold you back from feeling confident and happy with your smile. Contact our practice today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Doug or Dr. Raff to see if Invisalign is right for you.
Invisalign is a cutting-edge orthodontic treatment that uses clear, custom-made aligners to straighten teeth. The aligners are made from a smooth, BPA-free plastic that is comfortable to wear and virtually invisible, which makes them a great choice for people who are self-conscious about their appearance.
Unlike other clear aligner treatments, Invisalign is backed by years of research and development, and it has a proven track record of success. The aligners are precisely designed to apply gentle pressure to the teeth, gradually shifting them into the desired positions over time. This makes Invisalign a highly effective treatment for a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps, overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
Invisalign is also incredibly convenient. The aligners are removable, which means you can take them out when eating, brushing, and flossing. This makes it much easier to maintain good oral hygiene than with traditional braces, which can be difficult to clean around.
Overall, Invisalign is a highly effective, convenient, and discreet orthodontic treatment that can help you achieve a straighter, healthier smile.

Having straight teeth not only improves your smile but also has a significant impact on your oral health.
When your teeth are straighter, it becomes easier to maintain good oral hygiene, which can prevent many dental issues. Straight teeth are less likely to accumulate plaque and bacteria, reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. A healthy mouth also leads to better overall health and well-being.
Aside from the dental benefits, having straighter teeth can also boost your self-confidence. Additionally, straighter teeth can improve your bite, which can alleviate jaw pain and headaches. Misaligned teeth can put pressure on your jaw muscles, leading to pain and discomfort. Straightening your teeth can relieve this pressure and improve your overall dental function.
Finally, orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth can also improve your speech. Crooked teeth or a misaligned jaw can affect how you speak, leading to difficulty pronouncing certain words or sounds. Straightening your teeth can correct these issues, leading to clearer speech and improved communication.
Overall, the benefits of straighter teeth are numerous and far-reaching, from improved oral health to increased self-confidence and better overall well-being.

Invisalign treatment can vary in length depending on the complexity of your case, but on average, it takes between 12 and 18 months to complete. Some patients may see results in as little as six months, while others may need treatment for up to two years. It's important to follow your dentist's instructions and wear your aligners for the recommended amount of time each day to ensure the best results in the shortest amount of time. Your dentist will also schedule regular check-ups to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
One of the most common questions that people have about Invisalign is whether it is painful.
The short answer is that Invisalign is not usually painful, but you may experience some mild discomfort during the treatment process.
When you first start wearing Invisalign aligners, you may feel some pressure or tightness as your teeth begin to move into their new positions. This is a normal part of the process, and the discomfort usually goes away within a few days. Some people may also experience some soreness or irritation on their gums or tongue from the edges of the aligners.
However, it is important to remember that you can take your aligners out at any point if you are experiencing any discomfort!
You should wear your aligners for a minimum of 22 hours each day.
Invisalign can treat a huge range of cases, however there will be a select few patients for whom we will advise traditional braces be used.
Yes, it is highly recommended to wear your retainers after finishing Invisalign treatment. Retainers are an important part of the orthodontic treatment process as they help maintain the results achieved with Invisalign.
After completing your Invisalign treatment, your teeth will have been moved into their new positions. However, they will not be fully settled in their new positions and will have a tendency to shift back to their original positions if not held in place. This is where retainers come in.
Retainers help prevent teeth from shifting back to their original positions by holding them in their new positions. Depending on your specific case, your dentist may recommend wearing your retainers full-time for a certain period, followed by wearing them only at night.
It's important to follow your dentist's instructions on wearing your retainers to ensure that your teeth remain in their new positions. Neglecting to wear your retainers as instructed can cause your teeth to shift back, undoing the progress made during Invisalign treatment.
In summary, wearing your retainers after finishing Invisalign treatment is an essential step in maintaining the results achieved with Invisalign. Follow your dentist's instructions on wearing your retainers to ensure that your new smile stays beautiful and healthy for years to come.

"Had Invisalign Go treatment with Dr. Doug Macmillan. Very professional dentist who kept me at ease and gave me an even better end result than I could have hoped for. His dental nurse Yogi was just as kind and professional also. The practise itself is modern and immaculate and all the staff are very kind and knowledgeable. Would 100% recommend
