The Invisalign System straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, instead using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. They are virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth. Invisalign is ideal for both adult & teen patients due to their cosmetic appeal and shorter treatment time.


Clearly Different
The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100- year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign clear aligners are designed to move your teeth in small increments to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.

Your first step is to visit our orthodontic office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. Then, after we send precise treatment instructions to Invisalign, they use advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you’ll be smiling like you never have before!

To ensure the best possible results, only an orthodontist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology (like Dr. Kim here at our office) can diagnose and treat using the Invisalign System. Invisalign is not intended for children and is not appropriate for every adult. Only an orthodontist can determine if this treatment is an effective option for you.
