By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth
with results you'll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves
changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter
position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike braces,
these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual.
Less treatment time.
An average Invisalign course of treatment takes about a year. You'll see your Invisalign
Certified Orthodontist or Dentist every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments and to check
progress. At regular intervals, you'll receive a new set of custom-molded clear
aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners
is specific to you, and we will create a custom treatment plan for your aligners.
