Invisalign®: A Comfortable and Convenient Alternative to Braces

Straighten your teeth with clear aligners that are virtually invisible.

How is Invisalign® Different From Traditional Braces?

Invisalign® straightens your teeth using clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible, so no one has to know they are there. And unlike traditional braces, they are removable! You can remove the clear aligners to brush and to eat and drink. Invisalign® is made of smooth plastic that is comfortable to wear.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

Invisalign® treatment begins with a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate and to answer all of your questions.

We’ll start with x-rays and impressions of your teeth to create a 3-dimensional image. Using this, we can map out the exact movements of your teeth and create a virtual image for you of how your teeth will look. Based on your individualized plan, a series of custom-made, clear aligners are made specifically for you. The aligners are made of BPA-free clear plastic and fit easily over your teeth.  About every two weeks you will begin wearing a new set of aligners, progressing you through to your treatment goals. To make sure things are going well, you will have a check-up in the office every six weeks or so to monitor your progress. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gently and gradually shift into place. Once you have achieved the beautiful smile you desire, we recommend retainers to keep your teeth looking good.

How Long Will I Have To Wear Invisalign®?

While each case is unique, depending on the treatment needed, Invisalign® usually takes approximately one year for adults. For teens, the length of treatment is comparable to that of traditional braces. For fastest results, you should wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours a day.

What About Special Occasions or Playing Sports?

Since Invisalign® is designed to be removable, it is perfectly fine to take out your aligners for a special night or event. Or if you play a contact sport that requires a mouth guard, you can simply replace your aligners with the mouth guard while you play.
