What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a modern and popular option for orthodontic treatment that uses clear trays to treat teeth that are misaligned, including those that are crowded or spaced apart. The trays apply mild pressure to your teeth while repositioning them and appear virtually invisible to other people. Invisalign trays are created through CAD/CAM software using digital imaging in our office, allowing us to deliver an efficient and precise fit.

The Unique Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign

Removable trays

The clear trays can be removed when you eat and drink or brush your teeth. This means that you’ll be able to keep eating all your favorite foods and stay on top of your oral health more easily than with traditional braces.

Invisalign

Comfortable treatment

The thin trays allow for the ability to speak naturally as there are no bulky wires or brackets.

Invisalign

Discreet

Invisalign trays are nearly undetectable, which can be a great advantage for many patients who worry about their appearance. You won’t have to hide your smile during treatment with Invisalign as it will allow you to continue through your daily routine seamlessly!

Invisalign

Affordable

The price of Invisalign treatment is usually comparable to traditional braces. 

Invisalign

Rapid results

Treatment may be quicker than traditional braces as most patients will see their Invisalign treatment completed in a year or less.

The Treatment Process

Consultation & Planning

During your consult, Dr. Van will evaluate your smile to verify that Invisalign can correct your misalignment. If you are approved for treatment, Dr. Van will complete a digital scan to design and fabricate your trays.

Wearing Your Aligners

Your clear aligner trays will be created in the Invisalign labs. They will gradually align your teeth to the correct position as you wear them for at least 20 hours a day. You will receive additional sets of trays, wearing each tray for 1 week.

Check-Ups & New Sets

At several week intervals, you will visit the office for Dr. Van to verify that your treatment is on track and answer any questions you may have. You will also receive your new sets of aligners during these visits.

How to Care for Your Aligners

Cleaning your Invisalign trays is easy, as you can brush them with toothpaste or a gentle hand soap to remove any food particles that may be present. Removing the trays allows you to continue to brush and floss your teeth regularly. In some situations, Dr. Van may even recommend leaving them in while you eat.
