What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign®Opens a new window to the Invisalign website helps to straighten teeth without the use of typical metal braces. It uses a series of clear, removable, and comfortable aligners (trays), which are invisible to everyone around you.
The aligners are designed with 3D computer imaging technology and made from SmartTrack material. This material makes the trays more comfortable, easy to put in, and simple to take out.
They can be used to treat small to complex alignment issues. Invisalign® is custom-made to move your teeth little by little in a more efficient, and gentle way.

Invisalign® has created clear aligners, specifically focused on the needs of teenagers. For example, to make sure your teen wears the aligners the recommended hours, the trays have “compliance indicators.” These colored dots fade over time as the aligners are worn. This indicates whether or not the plan has been followed.
