What is Invisalign?

Patients from Mission Hills and Hillcrest are asking what is Invisalign invisible braces?


Invisalign braces are a modern and comfortable alternative for straightening teeth. Invisalign invisible braces are a high tech system of clear aligners that fit snugly over your teeth and create pressure that repositions your teeth over a period of time.



The aligners are designed and custom made for your teeth by a specially trained Invisalign dentist. Aligners are worn for a period of approximately two weeks and then you change to the next aligner. Your teeth move gradually with each new tray. Normally they are worn 22 hours a day: mainly any time you are not eating or brushing your teeth. Aligners come with a well-concealed blue dot wear indicator that no one can see when you are wearing your braces. The wear indicator lets you know when its time for your next set of aligners.


Invisalign braces are a fantastic solution for teens and adults that want straighter teeth. Since they are almost invisible, you will have the confidence to smile throughout the treatment period. No more closed mouths or hiding when it’s photo time. You will be more confident in your appearance from the beginning to the end of your treatment.

Say goodbye to ugly wires, painful bands, and brackets. Say farewell to aching gums and mouth sores that result from having a mouth full of uncomfortable metal. Say adios to long and complicated brushing and flossing times, and uncomfortable visits to the orthodontist.

Say hello to a whole new world of freedom. You’ll soon have the freedom to be comfortable, the freedom to eat what you want, the freedom to take your aligners out when you need to, the freedom to spend more time with your friends instead of at the dentist’s office and the freedom to smile broadly – without a mouthful of metal.

The aligner trays are smooth and comfortable to wear and they are removable. This means that you can continue doing exactly the same things you did before wearing Invisalign braces. If you have a special occasion and you prefer not to wear them, you can pop them out and put them back in again after the event is over.

Of course, because they are virtually invisible, you will have little need to have to take them out. What’s more, the system is convenient too! It accommodates the busy schedules of teens and parents on the go.
