What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces, using a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. You wear each set of clear aligners for about two weeks, removing them 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 the final position. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure your treatment progresses as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months, and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

 

The Top 5 Benefits of Invisalign

 

How does Invisalign work?

 

We use 3D computer imaging technology to demonstrate the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position. This 3D model is used to generate a series of custom-made aligners. The patient wears the aligners for about two weeks while the teeth move incrementally. After two weeks, the current aligner is replaced with the next one until the final position is achieved.
