Invisalign is a clear, removable alternative to metal braces. It straightens teeth using a series of custom-made aligner trays that are virtually invisible. Each tray is worn for about two weeks, then replaced with the next in the series. You must remove the trays to eat, brush your teeth and floss, and you will visit your orthodontist every six to eight weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as expected.

Invisalign works by putting tiny amounts of pressure on the misaligned teeth, slowly moving them into place and thereby correcting your smile. Some patients may require SmartForce attachments, which are small dots that adhere directly to your teeth and help to distribute the pressure more evenly throughout your smile.
