What to Expect with Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign is a clear dental aligner that’s used as an alternative to traditional metal braces. Often time, Invisalign and similar treatments are used when a patient wants to avoid the look and feel of braces. If you’re considering Invisalign, here are a few things to keep in mind before diving in.

  • Over a million patients have been treated with Invisalign! This is a proven method of dental treatment and teeth straightening that orthodontic patients of all ages and backgrounds have chosen. 
  • There are both similarities and differences between Invisalign and traditional braces. 


  • May be more expensive
  • Able to be removed on a daily basis, for meals, etc
  • Less frequent dentist or orthodontic visits
  • Treatment can last as little as 6 months
  • May not be a good option for everyone
  • It is recommended that Invisalign be worn for at least 20 hours daily to achieve maximum results
  • Invisalign aligners are changed every week due to rapid complex improvements to your teeth 

Traditional Braces
