What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment method which straightens teeth without the use of braces. Instead, Invisalign works by using sets of aligners made from clear medical-grade plastic to move teeth into position. These aligners are custom-made to your teeth to achieve the best result for you.

At the start of your Invisalign treatment, your orthodontist uses specialized computer software to design a plan for moving your teeth from their current positions into the best possible alignment. This movement will be broken down into a few dozen stages. For each stage you will wear a different set of plastic aligners to accomplish gradual movement to achieve your smile, your way.

How does Invisalign work?

You wear each set of aligners for about two 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 the final position we’ve prescribed. Total treatment time and the average number of aligners worn during treatment will vary from case to case, but this is something we’ll cover in detail at your initial consultation.
