About Invisalign®

Get the beautiful smile you want without the fuss of metal brackets or wires. The groundbreaking Invisalign® system is designed to gently straighten your teeth using a series of custom-made, clear aligners. They can be easily removed allowing you to eat, play sports, or enjoy social occasions. Each aligner provides just enough pressure at exactly the right time to move your teeth into their optimal positions.

The virtually invisible aligners are made from a proprietary blend of durable thermoplastic materials to safely and gently move your teeth into their proper alignment, eliminating the need for metal braces.

How It Works

Each Invisalign aligner is slightly different.  The aligners work by applying the ideal amount of pressure, at exactly the right time to shift your teeth.  The aligners then gently move the teeth in the sequence your doctor determines is correct for you. Each aligner is used for approximately two weeks before moving to the next one in the Invisalign series.

Because the aligners are virtually invisible, Invisalign allows you to discreetly create your ideal smile without slowing you down. Each aligner should be worn for 20-22 hours each day to achieve optimal results.  They can, however, be removed easily, allowing you to eat and drink your favorite foods or play sports.

The atmosphere at Maddux Orthodontics is friendly and very much family. When Dr. Maddux is working with me one-on-one, he’s very soothing and very gentle, and explains everything very well. This is definitely the orthodontist for everyone in the Virginia Beach area.
