What Is It?

Invisalign is a radical departure from traditional braces. Instead of metal and wire, Invisalign uses convenient, clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. When you come in for Invisalign treatment, we will make several sets of these clear aligners specifically for your teeth.

Each set is worn for two weeks, gradually straightening your teeth over time. By the time you reach your final set of plastic aligners, you will have beautiful, straight teeth.

Who Needs Invisalign?

Designed for teens and adults, Invisalign helps our patients who have crooked, misaligned teeth. Children are discouraged from this treatment option, although exceptions are made in specific cases when the child’s needs warrant Invisalign.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

Adults finish up with Invisalign treatment anywhere between 12 and 18 months. Teenagers may require slightly more time for their treatment to complete. Many of our patients begin to notice improvements in their teeth just two weeks after starting Invisalign treatment.

Call our caring staff at Smile Up Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics today so we can schedule you for a consultation with our skilled dentists. Soon, you can enjoy the benefits of healthier, straighter teeth that will last a lifetime.

What is Invisalign® treatment?

Invisalign® treatment involves wearing clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth without traditional braces. Instead of brackets and wires, you will be getting tooth colored attachments and clear aligners for precise movements.

How does Invisalign® work?

Invisalign® works through a series of custom-made clear aligners that move your teeth into the desired position. Each movement is meticulously designed by Dr. Peter H. Chen or Dr. Yoojin Gina Lee.

How are Invisalign® aligners made?

Invisalign® clear aligners are crafted from a patented plastic material that is FDA approved, free of BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten. These aligners are thin, clear, and fit snugly over teeth, ensuring minimal visibility during wear.

How often do I need to wear Invisalign aligners?

It's advised to wear Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, removing them only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.

How will Invisalign® treatment straighten my teeth?

Dr. Peter H. Chen and Dr. Yoojin Gina Lee create personalized digital treatment plans to map out precise tooth movements. Custom-made aligners apply targeted force to achieve gradual alignment, monitored throughout treatment to ensure progress.

How many people are using Invisalign® clear aligners?

Over 17 million people, including 4.5 million teenagers, have chosen Invisalign® clear aligners to enhance their smiles, reflecting its widespread acceptance and efficacy.

Is Invisalign® treatment painful?

While some patients may experience temporary discomfort or pressure with each new set of aligners, it is typically less pronounced compared to traditional braces.

What's the recommended method for cleaning my aligners or retainers?

You can effectively clean with hand soap or dish soap under running water. Do not use hot water that may deform the aligner or retainer. Do not use abrasive toothpaste and hard bristles that may scratch the surfaces.

How do I get started with Invisalign® treatment?
