What is Invisalign Invisible Braces?
Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without orthodontic wires or brackets, using a series of clear, removable aligners. You wear each set of clear aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed. You’ll visit your orthodontist or dentist about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. OVER 1.7 MILLION INVISALIGN PATIENTS ARE NOW SMILING WITH CONFIDENCE.
How long will it take to straighten my smile with Invisalign?
Total treatment time averages 3-6 months for the Express plan and 9-24 months for the full treament. The average number of aligners worn during treatment is 5-10 for Express and between 18 and 30 for the full treatment, but both will vary from case to case.

Invisalign Frequently Asked Questions
Who is Invisalign for?
Invisalign can treat a broad range of dental and orthodontic conditions, which, in the past, were usually only treated with traditional braces: overly crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, cross-bites overbites and underbites.
How does Invisalign work?
An Invisalign-trained dentist will utilize 3D computer imaging technology to demonstrate the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position. This imaging technology is then used to design an individualized series of custom-made aligners. The patient wears the aligner for about two weeks while the teeth move incrementally. After two weeks, the current aligner is replaced with the next one until the final position is achieved.
What do aligners look like?
Aligners are clear and nearly invisible. If you’ve ever seen clear tooth-whitening trays, that should give you a good idea of what the aligners look like. Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit and move your teeth.
Will the treatment be painful?
Each time you change to a new aligner, there may be some temporary discomfort while your teeth adjust to their new position. This is completely normal, and is a good sign that the treatment is working.
Will wearing Invisalign aligners affect my speech?
Some people are affected more than others, but most adjust in a short period of time to the feeling of the aligners and do not have permanent changes in their speech.
How often will I have to wear my aligners?
Invisalign only works while you’re wearing the aligners. It’s recommended that you wear your aligners full-time, day and night, except to eat, brush, and floss your teeth.
How much does Invisalign cost?
Cost is always a concern, and only your doctor can determine the price of treatment. It is typically in the same range as ordinary metal braces, starting from $1,995 depending on the requirements of your case.

Does Invisalign really work?
Yes. In orthodontic and dental practices nationwide, Invisalign has been proven effective at straightening teeth. Over 1.7 million people have improved their smiles using Invisalign invisible braces.
Does insurance cover Invisalign?
Yes, any insurance plan that covers orthodontics should cover Invisalign.
