Invisalign Clear Aligner Options
Invisalign treatment is a technique that straightens your teeth without braces, using a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-modeled to fit your teeth. The virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a smile you’ll love.
Invisalign Treatment Can Work for Children and Teens
Imagine a smile transformation without the daily hassle of braces! That’s the magic of Invisalign® aligners—a top choice for kids and teens. While Invisalign treatments for teens can be a tad more intricate than for adults, their effectiveness remains unrivaled. The beauty? Every treatment is tailor-made! Thanks to cutting-edge 3D technology, you can peek into the future and see the dazzling results even before starting.
By using its advanced technology, Invisalign Teen can treat a broad range of dental and orthodontic conditions in teens, which, in the past, were usually treated with traditional braces.
Invisalign for Adults
Imagine a teeth-straightening solution that dances to your rhythm! Invisalign clear aligners can be easily removed whenever you eat, brush, or celebrate those milestone moments—making it the go-to choice for modern adults.
With today’s busy schedules, Invisalign seamlessly fits into your lifestyle. Slide them over your teeth, and you’ll forget they’re even there. Whether it’s dinner with friends or your daily dental routine, these aligners can be conveniently set aside. And when it’s time for that special date or event? Simply pop them out and shine!

How do I clean Invisalign aligners?
- Always rinse your aligners as soon as they are removed from your mouth. It is recommended that you soak your aligner trays with the Invisalign brand crystal cleaning solution every day. This solution removes the bacteria from the aligners.
- Use a soft bristle toothbrush (not your toothbrush that you use daily) to lightly sweep away any debris that remains after the soak.
- After soaking, rinse off the aligners and place back in your mouth.
How long do I wear each set of aligners?
Typically, you’ll wear each aligner set for a week at a time, but it can vary, so it’s important to closely follow our feedback during treatment. Because teeth move at different rates—and teeth respond differently from person to person—we rely on weekly scans to optimize your treatment management. With each scan we review, we’ll determine the correct changing interval for each aligner set throughout your treatment. Thankfully, you can actually do your weekly scans with a smartphone and the Smile Doctors Anywhere app.
Does Invisalign fit an active lifestyle?
Invisalign treatment is a great choice for an active lifestyle! Your aligners can be worn during nearly any activity, removing them only for eating and cleaning. Invisalign aligners can be worn comfortably while playing sports. When it comes to contact sports, you can remove the aligner and wear a mouthguard that your orthodontist may recommend. Invisalign aligners can also be removed for special occasions if you prefer to do so.
What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment is a popular choice because of many benefits:
- Clear aligners for more aesthetic appearance
- Comfortable as it is custom-made to fit your bite
- Affordable (about the same price as traditional metal braces)
- Faster treatment
- Less time spent at the orthodontist
- No restrictions for food
- You can carry out oral hygiene routine much easier than with the traditional brackets and wires
How much time should I plan to spend at the Orthodontist with Invisalign?
This depends on your individual treatment plan and is closely tied to the difficulty of movements being accomplished. With the help of weekly scans, artificial intelligence, and our virtual clinical assessment, we will customize an in-office interval that is best to achieve our goals.
What about Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) and Invisalign treatment? What are they, and will I need them?
Orthodontists used to face difficulties in controlling the adjustment of out-of-place teeth in patients with severe bite problems or missing teeth, as they required external anchor points via unsightly and inconvenient practices like headgear and external braces. TADs (Temporary Anchorage Devices) have since provided a solution.
By attaching an anchor to the jawbone, TADs eliminate the need for uncomfortable treatments and offer more precise orthodontic treatment for patients who need it. Not all patients require TADs. Your Doctor will determine if TADs are suitable for you during your consultation and provide advice.
How much does Invisalign treatment cost?
Invisalign treatment cost varies according to factors including the length of treatment and the total number of sets you will need. We are happy to come up with a payment plan that would best suit your budget and get you the orthodontic treatment you need. Contact us to learn more!
