Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic solution that uses clear aligners to gradually straighten teeth. The plastic aligners are invisible and can be easily removed for cleaning and eating. Patients are required to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day to receive optimal results. More than three million adults and teenagers around the world have successfully used Invisalign to correct misaligned teeth or fix bite issues.

Dr. Thomas implemented laser technology into his practice in 2015 after receiving extensive training to become a Fellow in the World Clinical Laser Institute. A soft-tissue laser is a tool that assists Dr. Thomas in treating oral sores, performing biopsies and recontouring gums.
