Why Invisalign Treatment?
Choose the clear aligner system committed to continuous innovation, with 20 years of clinical research and more than 700 patents. No other clear aligner is backed by the data and experience of 8 million cases. With in-person consultations provided by your doctor, your Invisalign treatment will straighten your teeth more predictably and comfortably.
Up to 50% faster treatment times*
With weekly aligner changes, you are on your way to the smile you want even faster. Depending on the complexity of each individual case and the treatment needed, Invisalign can work in as little as 6 months or as long as 12-18 months, compared to up to 24 months of braces.
SmartTrack® material and SmartForce® features are clinically proven to achieve 75% more predictable tooth movement.**
SmartTrack material is designed to work with the Invisalign system to apply gentle force, improve control of the movement of teeth, provide comfort, improve the speed of the process, and straighten your teeth more predictably.
SmartForce® attachments are tiny, barely noticeable, tooth colored shapes that are attached to your teeth before or during your Invisalign treatment to help your aligners apply the right amount of force in the proper direction to make complex movements possible.
Better fit, better comfort
Aligners made from SmartTrack material are more comfortable, better fitting, and easier to put on and take off.***
Effective for a wide variety of cases
Proprietary SmartForce features and SmartTrack material make Invisalign treatment effective for complex cases. With innovations like these, your doctor can move your teeth more precisely.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses clear, removable liners that gradually straighten your teeth, minus the brackets and restrictions that come with metal braces. Your doctor will create a unique treatment plan for your teeth, mapping out the exact movements, and replacing your aligners at the right times based on your plan.
How often do I have to wear my Invisalign aligners?
You will need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results. Aligners for teens contain compliance indicators to help them gauge wear time throughout the day.
Is Invisalign uncomfortable?
A little discomfort is to be expected in the early stages of wearing your aligners. The more you wear your aligners, the more your teeth will move and the pressure will lessen. The longer the period of time between wearing your aligners, the more pressure you will likely feel when you begin wearing them again. Routine check-ins with your doctor will allow them to help you maintain comfortability for each new set of aligners.
How do I clean my aligners?
Rinsing your aligners every night and brushing them gently with your toothbrush will keep them clean. You can also soak your aligners in denture cleaner or hydrogen peroxide to make sure they are clean and free of bacteria.
How often do I need to see the dentist while in Invisalign?
You will need to see the dentist every 6 weeks (on average) in order for them to monitor your progress and make sure you are tracking correctly. Beware of other systems in the market where you pretty much “do-it-yourself” and you are not being monitored closely by a trained dentist on a regular basis. There are many things that can go wrong such as your bite not being right, untreated gum disease leading to tooth loss, or untreated cavities causing pain and sensitivity. Always get a check-up prior to starting orthodontics and keep up your hygiene visits during treatment.
