If you or a loved one is interested in straighter teeth, talk to your dentist about Invisalign invisible aligners. Clear orthodontic aligners can make it possible to straighten your teeth without the eye-catching or irritating metal brackets of traditional braces.
The Invisalign process and cost are comparable to standard braces, but with several distinct advantages. Invisalign aligners are designed to be as accessible as possible, regardless of age or budget. Are Invisalign clear aligners right for you? Read on to find out!
What Is the Invisalign® System?
Invisalign aligner trays are smooth, clear aligners that fit closely over a patient’s teeth. The aligners serve the same purpose as traditional braces and fit comfortably in the mouth.
An Invisalign patient will start with an original aligner that closely mirrors their current bite. The patient gradually transitions to new aligners each week or two, depending on the treatment plan. Invisalign aligners are designed to gradually and painlessly shift the wearer’s teeth into a straighter position.
What Is the Process of Receiving Invisalign Aligners?
If you’re interested in learning more about Invisalign aligners, the first step is contacting your dentist. We can arrange an appointment for you to learn more about the Invisalign process and to make sure Invisalign aligners will work well with your teeth.
After checking your teeth and making sure Invisalign aligners will work for you, your dentist will take x-rays and impressions of your teeth. The digital images are used to make your first Invisalign aligners. As described above, this set of aligner trays fit snugly against your teeth while gradually straightening your teeth for a dazzling new smile!
You’ll wear the first set of aligners for as long as recommended by your dentist before you receive a second set of aligners. Regularly wearing your aligners can give you a straight smile you’ll be proud to share!
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign Aligners?
Invisalign invisible aligners can straighten your teeth just as effectively as traditional braces, but there are several advantages Invisalign aligners can offer than traditional braces can’t:
- Smoother, more comfortable material.
- Clear aligner trays can go virtually unnoticed.
- Straighten your smile in a shorter period of time.
- Keep eating the foods you love.
- No special dental tools are required to clean your teeth.
- A confident smile throughout your treatment.

Cost and Treatment Time
First, you can expect your Invisalign aligners to cost approximately the same as traditional braces. If you’re concerned about the cost of Invisalign treatment, come to our office and we’ll talk about our payment options. We do everything we can to make your Invisalign price affordable for you and your budget.
An Invisalign treatment is also timely. On average, an Invisalign patient only needs to wear the Invisalign aligners for 12–18 months. Depending on your teeth, this might be a notably shorter treatment time than treatment with standard braces.
Ease of Use
Invisalign aligners work well for patients of all ages—just keep in mind that they work more efficiently when you can wear them at least 22 hours each day.
Invisalign clear aligners are easy to remove, so an Invisalign patient can take them out as needed. This is a definite advantage when it comes to brushing or flossing your teeth or eating foods that can damage traditional braces.
Invisalign aligner trays make cleaning your teeth easier, but cleaning the Invisalign aligners is also simple. You can remove the aligners, clean them with a toothbrush just like you would clean your teeth, and you’re ready to go. You can also use Invisalign cleaner for a more comprehensive clean.
