Quick Results

Invisalign can often align your smile in less time than traditional braces, allowing you to achieve your desired results faster.

Invisalign Treatment Process


At your initial consultation, Dr. Geoff will assess whether Invisalign is a suitable option for you. The first step is examining your oral health to detect any gaps or crowding and check that your gums are healthy enough for treatment. Additionally, we will discuss your smile goals and together determine a treatment plan that is tailored to meet your specific needs and lifestyle.

Digital Impressions

Next, our staff will take impressions of your teeth and bite using digital imaging technology. After the impressions are made, Dr. Geoff will review them for accuracy and make any necessary adjustments before sending them off to our trusted dental lab. At the lab, skilled technicians will craft your first few sets of aligners to precisely fit your teeth and guide them toward the desired position.

Fitting & Next Steps

After we receive your Invisalign aligners, you will return to our office, where Dr. Geoff will carefully check their fit and make any necessary adjustments. You will receive detailed instructions on how to wear and take care of your new aligners. Most patients will wear each set for approximately 2 weeks, at least 20-22 hours per day. About every 6 weeks, you will return to our office to pick up your next few sets of aligners. During those visits, we will check to ensure that your smile is progressing as planned.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

How do Invisalign work?

Invisalign use custom-made aligners to gradually shift your teeth closer to their ideal placement. Each aligner tray is worn for about two weeks and gently shifts your teeth. Treatment time can vary from several months up to two years, depending on the severity of the misalignment. Most patients wear their Invisalign aligners for about a year.

Is Invisalign safe?

Absolutely! Invisalign aligners are made of BPA-free, medical-grade clear plastic for your comfort and continued health.

Is Invisalign faster than traditional braces?

Invisalign can often provide quicker results than traditional braces. The aligners gently shift all teeth faster than traditional braces, which push or pull on each tooth individually. However, every case is different, so treatment time can vary depending on your unique needs. It’s important to follow your dentist’s instructions for wearing your custom-made clear aligners to achieve the results you’re looking for in the least time possible.

What is the difference between Invisalign and traditional braces?

Invisalign use barely noticeable plastic trays called aligners to gently and discreetly shift your teeth. Traditional braces rely on metal or ceramic brackets that are secured to each tooth and connected by metal wires. Invisalign are also more comfortable than traditional braces because there are no sharp points to cause discomfort, and they are easily removable for meals, photos, and other functions. However, clear aligners aren’t suitable for more complex issues like malpositioned jaws or severely misaligned bites, for which braces are a more versatile type of orthodontic treatment.

How much do Invisalign cost?

The cost of Invisalign can vary from patient to patient depending on factors like the aligner brand and insurance coverage. To get an estimate of the cost for your Invisalign aligners, schedule a consultation with our office.
