Most of us are not born with that bold-and-beautiful celebrity smile. In fact, most well-known celebrities are not born with their smile either. However, that fantastic smile is now within reach in Sacramento County, CA with the help Dr. Michael Payne and the team at American River Orthodontics.

Invisalign clear aligners

Adults are often reluctant to wear braces as a method of orthodontic treatment. Dr. Payne can prescribe treatment with Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign is virtually invisible, are removable by the wearer, and cause less irritation for the wearer than traditional methods for straightening teeth.

What can Invisalign do for me?

Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces that can help you get the smile you’ve always wanted. The Invisalign treatment option is available for anyone who is a candidate for traditional braces and can be used to treat all types of orthodontic issues. However, before you decide on a treatment plan with Invisalign, it is important to contact an orthodontist in Sacramento County, CA and ask their team these important questions:


  1. Are you certified by Invisalign?
  2. How long have you been using Invisalign to treat your cases?
  3. Do you prefer to use Invisalign or braces in my or my child’s case?
  4. Do you use the latest advancements in technology, like Invisalign, to obtain the best results?
  5. Do you have before-and-after pictures of your patients who have used Invisalign?

The Invisalign system, using a 3D computer imaging system, creates precise scans of your bite. The American River Orthodontics team will then use those scans to design your personal Invisalign aligners for each step as your treatment progresses.
