Invisalign/ Clear Aligners

Straighten Your Teeth With Invisalign/ Clear Aligners

What are Invisalign/ Clear Aligners?

Invisalign/ Clear Aligners are a treatment that gently move teeth into place. The trays are worn in a series over time to create a beautiful smile. Invisalign/ Clear Aligners are a popular alternative to traditional braces, and do not have any brackets or wires. The aligners are discrete and are comfortable when worn, and do not cause any mouth or gum irritation.

The clear aligner trays are worn anywhere between 20-22 hours a day. The time worn each day depends on the patient’s treatment plan and the level of correction needed. Invisalign/ Clear Aligners are easily removable for drinking and eating, and have a blue indicator to let patients know when they have worn the trays for the required amount of tine each day. The blue indicator is great for teens using the clear aligners, and helps parents know if their child has worn the trays for the correct amount of time.
