What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a series of customized, clear aligners to straighten teeth. Thousands of orthodontists in the United States and Canada use Invisalign to treat their patients. Invisalign aligners are:

  • Almost invisible – Invisalign aligners are hard to see while you are wearing them! Friends, family members and co-workers may never even know you are wearing Invisalign, unless of course you tell them!
  • Comfortable to wear – The aligners are made from a special plastic that has smooth, rounded edges so they are less likely irritate your mouth and tissues than traditional braces.
  • Customized just for you – Your Invisalign aligners are customized to fit your mouth. Drs. Iezman and Osterman use an advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to develop the aligner sequence then each aligner is customized so that it fits your mouth, and over time moves your teeth into the proper position.
  • Removable –Unlike traditional metal braces, you can remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush your teeth, floss and for special occasions. There’s no need to change your lifestyle with Invisalign!

How Does Invisalign Work?

When you begin your Invisalign treatment you will receive several sets of custom fit aligners. Each set of aligners is worn for one to two weeks. Some patients are on a one week change interval and others are on a two week change interval, the doctors will let you know what your aligner change interval will be. After one or two weeks, depending on your interval you can switch your aligners to the next set and continue straightening your teeth. Over time you will notice changes in the alignment of your teeth and in just a few months you will have a straighter, healthier smile!
