Why Choose Invisalign?

Virtually Invisible

Your friends will hardly notice you’re wearing the smooth, clear, plastic aligners.


With no brackets and wires to get in the way, Invisalign is extremely comfortable.


The aligners are removable so you can take them out to eat and brush and floss your teeth.


In the hands of an experienced provider like Dr. Scramstad, Invisalign is effective for teens and adults.

Kids Can Join Our 7&Up Club!

Did you know, age 7 is the recommended age for kids to have their first orthodontic evaluation? At this point, your child’s erupting teeth and jaw positions can be evaluated. If early orthodontic treatment isn’t needed, your little one will have the chance to join our 7&Up Club and Dr. Scramstad will keep an eye on their growth during regular maintenance visits. As a club member, your kiddo will also be able to take advantage of prizes, contests and a whole lot of fun!
