Invisalign® FAQs

The Invisalign system is a series of clear aligners used to straighten teeth.

Will Invisalign treatment fit my lifestyle?

  • Time for a snack? No problem. Take out your aligners to eat or drink whenever you want.
  • You can remove your Invisalign aligners so you can brush and floss regularly, and keep your teeth and gums healthy.
  • You can occasionally remove your Invisalign aligners to enjoy a special night out.
  • There’s no need to change a thing. Continue your day-to-day activities while still straightening your teeth.
  • Be yourself with Invisalign aligners. Since they are clear, you don’t have to hide your smile while going through treatment.
  • With Invisalign treatment, it’s easy to make your smile picture-perfect for that special occasion.
  • Invisalign treatment appointments work with your schedule. Most visits are in and out, with a quick progress check once every six weeks.

What is the Invisalign system?

The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign treatment uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to depict your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.

Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth — and your teeth only — to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved.

Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your doctor based on your specific needs.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign aligners are clear, which makes Invisalign treatment a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others. Invisalign aligners are also removable. Unlike braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment simply by removing the aligners when you eat. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign treatment does not use metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth. In addition, you’ll spend less time in the doctor’s chair and scheduling appointments, and more time out doing the things you love.

Lastly, Invisalign treatment technology allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment, so you can preview how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.

How many patients are in Invisalign treatment?

More than 5,000,000 patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign aligners. The number of Invisalign smiles grows daily. At your next appointment, we can answer any questions you might have, and get you started on the smile you’ve always wanted.

Invisalign and the Invisalign logo, among others, are trademarks of Align Technology, Inc., and are registered in the U.S. and other countries.

The staff was super friendly. It was almost like they invited us into their home. My daughter and I were very comfortable and both Dr. Bruno and Kristie were knowledgeable, patient and took the time to answer all of our questions. This was our first consult. We will come back and review again next year when we have been there longer. For now, we couldn't have asked for a better introduction to the practice. We're thankful three separate friends gave us recommendations.
