You may have heard the buzz over the last few years about Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign has been in the business of straightening teeth differently for years. With over 6 million smiles straightened (and counting), Invisalign is the trusted clear aligner of Collins Dental. Instead of traditional brackets and wires, at Collins Dental we offer a more subtle and comfortable way to straighten your teeth.
First, you come in for your Invisalign consultation. Our skilled doctors will determine if you’re a good candidate. If so, we will take a digital scan of your teeth and show you what your new smile will look like. We’ll send your information to Invisalign where your custom sets of aligners are made. Once your aligners are in-office we walk through all the details — from how to put them in, to when to move on to the next aligner in the series.
Once you start your Invisalign journey you’ll notice how convenient clear aligners are. You can enjoy all your favorite foods and drinks without worry. Simply remove your aligner to eat or drink, then brush your teeth and put them back in. You will wear each aligner for 22-24 hours a day and each one for one to two weeks, depending on your treatment plan. You will check in with us, in office, every 6-8 weeks to ensure your teeth are moving correctly and there are no issues.
“Wonderful Team, knowledgeable, experienced and keeps abreast of the most current information and treatments. The office could not run better. I would refer anyone to this practice in a heartbeat!”

Clear aligners aren’t just for adults anymore! With Invisalign Teen, your teen can enjoy all the benefits of clear aligners. No more worry about sports injury due to brackets and wires or embarrassing prom photos. For parents, Invisalign Teen aligners come with blue indication dots, to let you know if your teen has been wearing their aligners like they should.
If your teen or tween’s upper and lower jaws don’t line up properly — Dr. Collins may want to move the jaw prior to straightening the teeth. With Invisalign clear aligners with mandibular advancement, we can move the lower jaw without the need of bulky appliances.
