How does Invisalign treatment work?

Your invisalign clear aligners are custom made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth.

Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.

When you change to the next step of aligners your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by us.

Only Invisalign clear aligners are made of proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack material to gently shift your teeth into place.

Boomers` failure to recognize that oral health holds valuable clues could negatively impact their overall health.
