A clear alternative to braces: Invisalign® clear aligners

Consider Invisalign for the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted – without braces. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Michael Payne – an Invisalign certified Preferred Provider – can determine if Invisalign is right for you. Michael H. Payne, DDS, MSD, is a board-certified orthodontist and member of the American Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, California Association of Orthodontists and California Dental Association. He has practiced orthodontics exclusively in Sacramento since 1998.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. You can smile more during treatment and after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven as effective as traditional metal dental braces.

Why Invisalign?

Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are easily removable, so you can eat and drink what you want and brush or floss as needed. They are also comfortable, with no irritating metal used during treatment. This means that you will spend less time with Dr. Payne in his Sacramento, CA office getting adjustments. Invisalign also lets you see how straight your teeth will look when treatment is finished.

During treatment, you’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that everything is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically requires from nine to 15 months. The number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both estimates will vary from one person to another.

Invisalign is great for some teenagers and adults who want to straighten their teeth almost invisibly and discreetly, thus avoiding any embarrassment that may be caused by traditional metal dental braces.
