Would you like to straighten your smile with state of the art orthodontics? Then explore the benefits of Invisalign, the clear way to beautiful, healthy teeth in Jacksonville Beach. Rick K. Harrison, DMD, PA helps teens and adults with this orthodontic system.

Clear, smooth and removable

Invisalign aligners are all that and more. Custom-made according to your dentition, special scans and your Jacksonville Beach dentist's instructions, Invisalign aligners reposition crooked teeth quickly and comfortably. Plus, they are so clear and thin, no one will notice you're wearing them.

Really, you may ask? Well, it's true. Patented SmartTrack acrylic, combined with your technician's skill and digital artistry, produce appliances which do their jobs without obvious appearance.

Plus, when you eat, brush, floss or want a short break from your aligners, simply remove them! Just remember to wear each appliance 20 to 22 hours a day to keep treatment on track.

Effective and quick

Compared to correction with lingual, ceramic or metal braces, Invisalign takes half the time and works exceptionally well on problems such as:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Openbite
  • Tooth tipping
  • Tooth rotation
  • Gaps
  • Overlapping or crowded teeth
  • Orthodontic relapse (when correct smiles shift position after treatment is over)

Plus, Invisalign patients enjoy all their favorite healthy foods because there are no wires to break or brackets to fall out. Aligners snap in and out easily for meals, snacks, flossing, brushing and special events such as weddings, proms and job interviews.

Is Invisalign right for you?

Invisalign is the front runner in clear aligner technology. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1997, this orthodontic system has helped millions of people across the world enjoy the benefits of healthy, straight smiles.

Dr. Harrison qualifies patients for treatment right in his Jacksonville Beach office. Then, the dental lab crafts the typical 18 to 30 aligner pairs specific to the patient's needs.

Also, if you like easy orthodontic appointments, expect them with Invisalign. Simply come to Dr. Harrison's office every four to six weeks for a quick inspection and to receive your next pairs of clear aligners. When you complete your treatment plan, you'll wear a customized retainer to keep your teeth in perfect alignment indefinitely.
