About Invisalign


Mairead M O’Reilly and Associates are Elite Premier Providers of Invisalign. This recognition puts Drs O’Reilly and Muench into a group of select practices who have achieved an exceptional level of Invisalign experience.

Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted – without braces. A complimentary consultation with Dr O’Reilly can determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you.

Invisalign uses a series of transparent, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing so you can smile more during treatment and beyond. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven very effective in creating beautiful, confident smiles. Our practice is also proud to announce that we provide Invisalign Teen treatment as an esthetic treatment option for our adolescent patients!

Not only are the aligners transparent, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing methods are exactly the same because you simply remove your aligners to brush and floss. The aligners are comfortable and cause very little irritation during treatment.

How does it work?

You wear each set of upper and lower aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will continue to move into the proper position. Treatment length depends on the number of aligners prescribed and can vary depending on the severity of the bite and extent of tooth movement required. During your Invisalign treatment, you will visit Drs O’Reilly and Muench approximately every 8-12 weeks for regular adjustments.

At Dr O’Reilly’s office, we have made Invisalign treatment even easier and more proficient with the use of an iOC Digital Impression Scanner. This state-of-the-art technology allows our well trained clinicians to take highly accurate digital, 3D images of the topographical characteristics of your teeth. By taking these 3D scans, we eliminate the need for an impression as well as speed up the process of getting our Invisalign patients started with treatment.

The iOC Scanner is all about patient comfort. It delivers a digital dental impression that is even more accurate than our routine dental impressions. During the scan our patients remain comfortable and are able to breathe and swallow naturally. Much like our digital X-ray system, the iOC Scanner does not expose our patients to any sort of radiation and is completely safe.

But the best part of all is that the iOC Scanner is FAST! Using the scanner at Dr O’Reilly’s office results in a faster delivery time of your personalized Invisalign or Invisalign Teen aligners. This will allow you to start creating YOUR beautiful smile even sooner!
