Invisalign is a series of clear, removable aligners that straighten your teeth. Throughout the treatment you’ll change the aligners approximately every two weeks. This moves your teeth into the straighter position step by step. With Invisalign®, you can remove the clear aligners for eating and brushing your teeth.
Invisalign treatment takes about a year for most people. You’ll have an appointment with your Invisalign® Certified Orthodontist every six to eight weeks for adjustments. You’ll receive your custom clear aligners at regular intervals throughout your treatment. How many of clear aligners depends on your specific case.
