Invisalign® is one of the most popular orthodontic treatments available today and McKinney Orthodontics is a top-tier orthodontic provider in Tuscaloosa. We use comfortable iTero scanning which creates a 3D rendering of your teeth. These images are used to create virtually invisible, clear plastic aligners that are custom-made to gently shift your teeth into place. Each aligner is typically worn for two weeks and then swapped for the next one in a series until you have reached your ideal smile.

Traditional braces can make patients self-conscious, and studies show that people with Invisalign® clear aligners are 2x more likely to have a boost in self-esteem.
You can have fewer, shorter office visits and fewer emergency visits.
Invisalign® treatment can give you back family time, because Invisalign® clear aligners don’t need to be manually adjusted by an orthodontist. And you’ll never have an emergency visit due to broken wires or brackets.

The aligners are virtually invisible and easily removable, so you can still enjoy photos, social events, and all the foods you love. Plus, no brackets or wires means sports injuries are less likely. You can even continue to brush and floss as usual for better oral health — and have less cavity-causing plaque than patients with braces.
