What is Invisalign

Since 1997, Invisalign has been billed as “the clear alternative to braces.” Invisalign serves the same function as traditional braces, moving your teeth and reshaping your smile, but without the metal frames and wires. It is an excellent option for both adults and teens, and more and more insurance carriers have begun to cover it.

Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gently move your teeth. Treatment begins with a personalized consultation during which your dentist will use 3-D computer imaging to design your entire treatment plan. A series of customized aligners are then created.

You will wear each aligner for two weeks. You can change aligners yourself, minimizing the number of office appointments that are required. Adult treatment often takes approximately one year, while teens might need a little longer.

Aligners are fully removable, simplifying oral care and allowing you to eat your favorite foods. Your dentist will explain how to properly care for your aligners, and how long you must wear them each day.
