  • What is Invisalign treatment?

    Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear aligners which are removable that gradually straighten your teeth. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces.

  • What are Invisalign clear aligners made of and what do they look like?

    Invisalign clear aligners are made of flexible plastic — specifically patented thermoplastic material . Invisalign clear aligners contain no BPA, latex, or gluten. They are thin, clear, and fit snugly over your teeth, making them virtually invisible.

  • How will Invisalign treatment straighten teeth?

  • What are the benefits of Invisalign treatment?

    Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible — people may not notice you are wearing them. You can remove them to eat and to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break, sending you to an emergency visit.

And, thanks to a discreet blue dot on the outside of teen aligners, parents can be sure their child is wearing their clear aligners enough.

  • How long will treatment take?

    The length of treatment depends on multiple factors, like how complex your case is and how often you wear your aligners. We will determine exactly how long your treatment will take based on your specific needs. On average, Invisalign treatment time is 12 to 18 months, though you can start seeing results in a matter of weeks.

  • How often will I change aligners?

    This can vary based on your individual treatment plan. We recommend changing Invisalign clear aligners weekly or every other week.

  • How many hours per day should I wear my aligners?

    For the best results, wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day, taking them out just for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.

  • My doctor mentioned "attachments." What are they and why would I need them for my Invisalign treatment?

    Attachments are small tooth-colored shapes that are attached to your teeth. These shapes serve as handles, giving the aligners something to gently push on in order to move your teeth with the right amount of force, and are what make complex tooth movements possible without braces. Invisalign clear aligners fit smoothly and tightly around them, so they are barely noticeable.
