What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a patented approach to straightening teeth that differs from traditional braces. Often referred to as "invisible braces" or "clear braces", Invisalign uses a set of removable aligner trays (custom-molded just for your specific mouth) which are comfortable and made of smooth plastic. You simply wear these over your teeth, and because the trays are clear, letting the color of your natural teeth come through. Thus, they look virtually invisible to everyone else. Invisalign has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide, including great successes in Doctor Emma's own practice in Garden City.

How Does Invisalign Work?

  • Each set of aligners is worn for about 2 weeks
  • Aligners are removed to eat, brush, & floss
  • As each aligner is changed with the next in the series, your teeth move slightly
  • You’ll visit our office about every 6 weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned.
  • Total treatment time averages 9-15 months
  • Average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30

Approximately 6% of all U.S. dentists are certified to treat patients with Invisalign®. Of this group, only the top 1% have been named an Elite Preferred Invisalign Provider.
