Invisalign is a proven alternative to metal braces and has been used by dentists for over 15 years to straighten teeth and adjust bites.
Instead of attaching unsightly, uncomfortable metal brackets and wires to your teeth, Invisalign uses clear plastic trays called “aligners” to straighten your teeth and correct your bite.
Dr. Pakiz is a Preferred Provider of Invisalign, and received special training at the Invisalign headquarters from one of the top Invisalign experts in the country. He has many years of experience straightening his patients’ teeth using this revolutionary system.

There are many reasons why the Invisalign system is better than traditional metal braces, including:
Dr. Pakiz will take iTero digital impressions, photos and X-rays of your teeth, which are then sent to the Invisalign lab and used to create 3D images of your teeth. These images are used to map out the exact treatment plan needed in order to move your teeth into the correct position. Dr. Pakiz will show you a virtual representation of how your teeth will move during each stage of treatment.
The Invisalign lab will make a series of custom, clear aligners made of a smooth, BPA-free plastic. These aligners are virtually invisible and very comfortable, so you should experience almost no mouth irritation.
We recommend you wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day, and only take them out as needed—for example, to brush your teeth, eat or floss.
Once you receive your aligners, you will take them home and change them out every two weeks. Each set gradually shifts your teeth closer to their final position. Dr. Pakiz will meet with you once per month to monitor and evaluate your progress.
Invisalign can treat a number of alignment issues, from mild cases of crooked teeth to serious bite issues. Here are some of the main conditions Invisalign has helped patients fix:
Spaces or gaps between teeth – Gaps or spaces can be caused by missing teeth that encourage adjacent teeth to shift. They can also be caused by abnormal continued jawbone growth. Gaps and spacing issues can increase your risk of gum disease.
Overly crowded teeth – a condition resulting from not having enough space for your teeth to fit comfortably in the jaw. Especially common with the lower teeth.
Overbite – a condition where one or more of your upper teeth bite over your lower teeth. This can cause painful jaw and joint problems as well as gum irritation and wear on your teeth.
Underbite – the opposite of an overbite, underbites occur when one or more of your lower teeth protrude past your upper teeth. This can cause joint problems as well as place undue stress on your teeth.
Open Bite – an open bite occurs when some of your teeth are unable to make contact with the corresponding teeth on the opposite jaw for a proper bite. This can cause joint issues and create chewing problems.
Crossbite – this occurs when one or more of your upper teeth bite on the inside of your lower teeth, which can cause tooth wear, bone loss and periodontal disease.
If you are suffering from one of these conditions contact us so we can schedule you for an Invisalign consultation. Dr. Pakiz will evaluate the current condition of your mouth and create a customized treatment plan for you.
