What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is designed to be invisible. Invisalign uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners for your orthodontic treatment. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your orthodontist uses X-rays, pictures, and impressions to create precise 3-D images of your teeth and to configure your aligner trays accordingly.

Why Would I Want Invisalign?

If you are an adult, or have a teen who tends to be self-conscious, Invisalign may appeal to you. The fact that the aligners are removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss more naturally may be desirable. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you begin treatment so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How Does Invisalign Work?

The Invisalign teeth straightening system works through the use of plastic aligner trays that gradually move the patient’s teeth over time. After completing an initial consultation with the patient and an assessment of the patient’s orthodontic needs, the orthodontist creates a personalized treatment plan, which consists of a series of customized trays the patient changes every two weeks over the course of treatment. Unlike traditional braces, the Invisalign system does not require wires or metal, so the trays can be more comfortable to wear.


Real Reviews

What patients are saying about Invisalign…

I am absolutely, positively thrilled. The fact that I was done with it in less than a year, and really had no inconveniences whatsoever, makes me wonder why I even hesitated.

– Vivian, Age 53, Nurse

 

At my age, to have the big metal train tracks in your mouth, I just figured, in person with people, I just wouldn’t feel as comfortable as I would with something that was truly invisible. I really believe in the product. I’m kind of a walking, talking billboard for it.

– William, Age 31, Investment Broker

 

I would not have gone the regular braces route because I am in a customer-facing position. I’m in the hi-tech industry, with a lot of people around me that are young and hip and moving and shaking. To be in management, in a hi-tech company with a mouthful of braces in front of customers and prospects and other executive partners, it just wasn’t an option.

– Gina, Age 31, Analyst Relations

 

What I like best about Invisalign is the fact that I can take them out and floss and brush my teeth and put them back in. So it’s not like I’m working around all this metal in my mouth, trying to get the toothbrush and floss in there.

– Breanna, Age 20, Waitress & Student

 

I definitely smile a lot more. Even though I’m still in treatment, it has given me more confidence. It’s given me something to look forward to. I feel good about myself. I feel good that I have taken the steps to get these braces.

– Daniel, Age 38, Chauffeur

 

The reason I went with Invisalign is because I’m not a kid anymore. I didn’t want to look like a kid with braces on, and have the hassle of keeping them clean. There is a lot of work to keeping your teeth in good health when you have traditional braces.

– Ione, Age 58, Administrative Assistant

 

Everybody comments on my new smile, even when I’m wearing the aligners. Plus, I can remove them at any time, so they don’t affect my lifestyle.

– Teresa, Age 39, Consultant

 

At first, I was skeptical about whether or not to use plastic aligners to straighten my teeth, but I am very glad I decided to make the investment. In just about nine months my teeth were straightened using the clear, comfortable, and easy-to-remove aligners. I’m a busy guy, and using Invisalign fit right into my lifestyle.

– Alex, Age 26, Disneyland Entertainment

 

I always wanted to have straight teeth, but never thought my smile would look this great. Plus, no one even knew when I was wearing them. I couldn’t be happier!

– Gina, Age 26, Media Buyer

 

I wanted my teeth straighter, but I didn’t want to be in pain. My aligners are so comfortable, compared to the metal braces I had when I was a kid, that sometimes I forget I have them on.

– Martin, Age 28, Financial Analyst
