What Is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. It uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. Invisalign® has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

You wear each set of 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 move little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to their final position.

You'll visit us about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9 - 15 months and the average number of aligners during treatment is between 18 - 30, but both will vary from case to case.

How Are Invisalign® Aligners Made?

The aligners are made through a combination of our expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology. Through Invisalign's advanced computer technology we can determine which teeth need to move in order to achieve the proper smile. From there, each aligner is made to promote certain tooth movements.

Invisalign treatment can address minor to more severe tooth movements, but can’t handle issues that require complicated or complex jaw or tooth movements.

You’ll wear these aligners for about 22 hours out of the day, only removing them to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

Oral Care & Your Invisalign® Aligners

Aligners will need to be properly cleaned, but because they can be removed you won’t have to make any drastic changes to your diet or oral care routine (which you would have to do with braces). You won’t have to worry that certain foods will damage brackets or wires. Just remove your aligners prior to mealtime and you’re all set.

The same goes for your oral care routine. Just remove your aligners prior to brushing and flossing. It’s that simple. Now you won’t have to worry about carefully trying to brush around your traditional braces, where food and bacteria can easily hide. Flossing can also be a challenge with traditional braces, but Invisalign makes it easy to continue caring for your teeth and gums without changing your daily routine. Invisalign fits seamlessly into your lifestyle.
