The Invisalign system is a revolutionary technology that straightens
your teeth without the appearance of metal brackets and wires.
Instead, Invisalign aligners are made of transparent, flexible
plastic, designed for your unique case, to carefully and precisely
move your teeth into their correct positions. When worn, they are
Using patented SmartTrack™ material, the aligners are comfortable
and biocompatible, fitting snugly over your teeth. Most treatments
use a top and bottom aligner, each designed by your orthodontist to
safely shift your teeth. You’ll receive a new set every 1-2 weeks,
and then will swap out for a new set. Each one shifts your teeth
closer to their correct positions.
Depending on your case, your doctor may also use SmartForce
attachments, which are tooth-colored holds that affix to certain
teeth to give the aligners added grip. You may also use rubber
bands, which connect the top and bottom teeth to further assist the
precision movement of your teeth into their correct positions.
When your treatment is complete, you’ll be provided with retainers,
which will help protect the results of your Invisalign clear aligner
treatment. You’ll wear retainers every night for the first few
months, and then a few nights a week after that.
