Invisalign is a discreet orthodontic treatment that uses removable, clear aligners to guide teeth into their proper position. The majority of orthodontic cases can be treated using Invisalign, including crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, gaps between teeth, and open bites. Each set of aligners is customized to your teeth and your treatment plan.

Benefits of Invisalign:
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign is similar to traditional braces in the way that the systems move teeth, using small, gradual forces to control tooth movement. The clear aligners are made from a strong, plastic material that moves your teeth in very tiny increments until they are in their ideal position.
What to Expect
The process of treatment starts by getting a digital scan of your teeth with our iTero Scanner. Based on this scan, we create a treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth, and we fabricate multiple sets of invisible aligners to fit your teeth. You will wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day and switch out your trays for a new set every few weeks.
Length of Treatment
Your treatment length will depend upon your specific case and its complexity. On average, treatment time can range from 12 to 24 months. Dr. Bo and Dr. Baker will guide you through each step of your treatment and ensure that your trays fit correctly.
The cost of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the level of treatment required, but it typically ranges from $3,000-$7,000. We will provide you with a specific quote based on your treatment plan at your free new patient exam. We will also check your insurance ahead of time, so you will know if you have coverage from your insurance when you leave. Read more about the cost of Invisalign.
You will schedule office visits every 6-8 weeks, where Dr. Bo or Dr. Baker will check your progress, ensure your trays are fitting correctly, and you will receive your next set of trays.
Who is Invisalign For?
Most patients, including teens and adults, are great candidates for Invisalign treatment. If you are looking for a more discreet treatment, then Invisalign may be the perfect fit for you!
Invisalign for Adults
It is never too late to fix your smile, and with Invisalign clear aligners, you do not have to worry about people noticing that you have braces! Learn more about Invisalign braces for adults here.
Invisalign Teen is very similar to normal Invisalign aligners, but the system is designed with the teenager in mind. With school, sports, and busy lifestyles, teens can be more forgetful to wear their aligners and may be more prone to losing them. This is why Invisalign Teen comes with more trays and has a blue indicator dot on each tray that keeps track of how many hours the aligners are worn. Learn more about Invisalign Teen here.
