We are Proud to be a Certified Invisalign Provider

Invisalign is a brilliant, new method of getting those beautiful, straight teeth you have always wanted, without the need for braces.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a system that uses a series of invisible, removable and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth.  Unlike braces, with Invisalign, no one can tell you’re even wearing any sort of appliance in your mouth, so you can smile happily both during and after your treatment.  Invisalign is made with 3D imaging technology and has shown lasting and proven effectiveness.

Why Invisalign? 

Invisalign aligners are invisible and removable.  You can eat and drink, with no problems, during treatment.  With ordinary braces, brushing and flossing can be troublesome and the bands and wires can cause all sorts of trouble in getting your teeth fully clean.  With Invisalign, you simply pop out the appliance and brush and floss normally.

Invisalign is also comfortable, with no little pieces of metal causing abrasions during treatment.  And without all those wires, you will spend less time in the office getting adjustments.

Since the Invisalign plan is based on a 3D computer model you can see your own virtual treatment plan when you start and know how straight and wonderful your teeth will look when treatment is completed.

How Does the Invisalign System Work?

With the Invisalign System, you wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks, removing them only to brush, floss, eat and drink.  Each time you replace an aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move, and little by little, your teeth are moved into perfect position.

You’ll visit our office every six weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing smoothly and exactly as planned.  Total treatment time depends on your unique situation, however, the average is nine to fifteen months.  The usual number of aligners worn in this period is between eighteen and thirty.

Come in for a complimentary consultation with one of our doctors and find out if Invisalign is right for you.

A few words from our patients:

Four or five years ago, my son’s mother was not getting him to the dentist, and I only had him on the weekends, so I needed to find a dentist that had weekend hours. There are not many out there, and when I found EFD, I was pleasantly surprised. They have three or four dentists, but we have only ever seen Dr. Kanin. I like my other dentist as well, but the Saturday hours are what sold me on EFD. They also have a lot of evening hours available. Very convenient.

Dr Feeley and staff has given great care for the past 6 years. What impresses me most is their reliance on technology…from playing Sirius for their music to taking digital X-rays, the technology is top notch. The staff is friendly and a pleasure to deal with. I have 5 kids and take three of them here and two of them elsewhere.

This office is wonderful! They are so nice and professional, and sensitive to those who have had past bad experiences (me) or are timid about the dentist (my daughter). I finally found a good dentist in the area!
