The school year is coming to a close, and summer is just around the corner. For many families, this time of year means graduations, summer parties, family gatherings, and more! Now is the perfect time to start your alignment journey so that you can have a lifetime of beautiful smiles.
Are you worried about shiny braces showing up in photos, restricting your food, or getting in the way of life? Invisalign® could be your answer! Read on to discover how Invisalign works and why patients and orthodontists love it.
How Invisalign transforms smiles
Invisalign uses a series of clear, retainer-like aligners to guide the teeth into place—tray by tray and week by week. These plastic aligners are made with advanced 3D computer imaging technology to fit your smile perfectly. Aligners are worn 20-22 hours every day during treatment, and every week or two, you’ll swap trays and get one step closer to your dream smile!
As much as we love seeing our patients, we know you are busy—especially during this time of year. Invisalign means fewer trips into our office and more flexibility within your schedule. With Invisalign, you will visit us for periodic checkups. We will ensure treatment is going smoothly during these visits, make any adjustments to your plan if needed, and provide the next batch of aligners.
Why patients and orthodontists love Invisalign
Just like the name implies, Invisalign is nearly invisible! You can undergo orthodontic treatment and achieve a straighter smile without noticeable brackets, wires, or metal. Discreet treatment means you can take all your graduation, summer, and party pictures without worrying about braces taking center stage. Since aligners are removable, you can take them out to enjoy any foods you want at the community barbecue, summer wedding, or pool party. (Always brush after snacking and pop your aligners right back in!)
With braces, patients may find brushing and flossing more difficult as bits of food become lodged or stuck in the appliances. Having fully removable aligners makes oral hygiene a breeze so that you can enjoy a healthy, happy, and beautiful smile journey.

Having an aligned smile can change your life! A study conducted by Invisalign found that 92% of respondents felt much more confident after they transformed their smiles.
