Unlocking the Secret of Invisalign

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that uses a series of custom-made, clear aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. This makes them a discreet and comfortable option for individuals seeking to improve the appearance of their smile. The aligners system is designed to be a more convenient and efficient alternative to traditional braces, offering a range of benefits that have made it a popular choice among patients of all ages.

How does Invisalign work?

The aligners process begins with a comprehensive consultation with one of our experienced orthodontists. During this initial appointment, they will carefully assess the current state of your teeth and bite, and develop a personalized treatment plan to address your specific needs. Using advanced digital imaging technology, your orthodontist will create a 3D model of your teeth and plan the precise movements required to achieve your desired smile.

Once the treatment plan is finalized, a series of custom-made, clear aligners will be fabricated. Each set of aligners is designed to gently move your teeth a little bit at a time, gradually shifting them into the desired position. You’ll wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next in the series, gradually transforming your smile throughout your treatment.


How long does Invisalign treatment typically take? The duration of aligner treatment can vary depending on the complexity of your case and the degree of tooth movement required. On average, most patients complete their Invisalign treatment within 12 to 18 months.

Is Invisalign more expensive than traditional braces? The cost of Invisalign treatment can be comparable to or slightly higher than traditional braces, depending on the specifics of your case.

Can I eat and drink while wearing aligners? One advantage of Invisalign is the ability to remove the aligners for eating. This allows you to maintain your regular dietary habits and oral hygiene routine without the restrictions often associated with traditional braces.

How often do I need to visit the orthodontist during Invisalign treatment? During your Invisalign treatment, you’ll typically see our office every 4-6 weeks. These visits will be to check for a progress check and to receive your next set of aligners.

Can aligners be used to treat all orthodontic issues? Aligners are a versatile system that addresses many orthodontic concerns. Some cases may require traditional braces or other specialized treatments.
