Invisalign Treatment

Whether you are an adult patient or a teen, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen offer a discreet way to get the straight smile for which you have always hoped. There are many benefits to having this removable, clear teeth-straightening system. Some of them include:

  • The aligners are invisible, so no one has to know you are straightening your teeth!
  • They are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment.
  • Brushing and flossing are much easier.
  • They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
  • You will spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments.
  • Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

What is Invisalign?

  • A practically invisible orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth without braces
  • A progressive series of clear, removable, custom-made trays
  • No metal wires, bands or brackets needed
  • Custom-made for each patient’s smile for an efficient treatment and comfortable fit

How Does Invisalign Work?

You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As each aligner is replaced with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions.

You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months, while the average number of aligners worn during treatment totals between 18 and 30. Both of these figures vary on a case-by-case basis.
