The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Using advanced 3-D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth – and your teeth only – to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, until the final position of your teeth is achieved.
Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your doctor, based on your specific needs. The treatment will consist of a series of aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place.
Advantages of Invisalign
Precise impressions will be taken and then the aligners will be customized to your teeth.
Even before your Invisalign treatment is finished your teeth alignment will improve and you’ll begin enjoying the benefits of a better smile.
You can remove Invisalign aligners to eat, drink, brush and floss or for special occasions.
With Invisalign, the edges are smooth so they won’t irritate your gums or cheeks.
Invisalign is virtually invisible so hardly anyone will even know you’re straightening your teeth.

Your orthodontist plans your tooth movements throughout the Invisalign treatment timeline.
