What is Invisalign®?

The Invisalign® System is a virtually invisible treatment that uses an innovative approach to gently yet effectively straighten your teeth.

How does the Invisalign® system work?

During your first appointment, your Invisalign®-trained doctor will take photos, X-rays, and digital scans or dental impressions to create your treatment plan.
Using Align Tech’s proprietary Clincheck software, your doctor creates a customized 3D treatment plan based on your dental records. Your 3D treatment plan will depict the expected final position of your teeth and also gives you an indication of the likely length of the treatment.
The customized aligners will be manufactured and shipped to your doctor’s office.
Your series of custom-made aligners will be given to you (typically 3-4 sets at a time) for you to wear every day, and change approximately every 2 weeks.
You will visit your Invisalign®-trained doctor approximately every 6-8 weeks to monitor your progress, and receive the next series of aligners.

Treatable Cases

Invisalign® aligners are clinically proven to treat cases from minor teeth straightening to moderate and severe malocclusions.

  • Gapped Teeth: Gaps between the teeth.

  • Crossbite: Upper and lower jaws are misaligned.

  • Deepbite: Protruding upper teeth.

  • Underbite: Protruding lower teeth.

  • Overcrowding: Not enough room for the teeth.

  • Openbite: Vertical spacing between the front teeth.

After Treatment

The position of our teeth continues to change throughout life. This is a long term process that can lead to changes in the bite or in the alignment of the teeth. In addition, teeth have the tendency to return toward their original position after orthodontic treatment. This is called relapse. Therefore, retainers are provided to minimize this and ensure stability of the treatment outcome. The dentist will provide you with instructions on care and use of the retainers.
