Invisalign® Clear Aligners

You can wear a series of clear, acrylic trays that will gradually straighten your teeth like braces.  These systems allow you to remove the trays while eating, drinking, brushing and flossing, making them the most convenient and comfortable way to straighten your teeth. These aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth scrapes during treatment. Find out more about the Invisalign® clear aligner system offered in our office by clicking here.

Invisalign® FAQ

How long does it take for the aligners to straighten teeth?

Everyone’s smile is different, so the amount of time differs depending on the need for clear aligners. For patients needing slight straightening, the process can be as short as six months. The average time for Invisalign treatment is about 18-24 months. As long as you are maintaining your scheduled appointments at Meason Orthodontics, and wearing the aligners as directed, you should see results in a matter of months!

What is the Invisalign® process

First, our team will scan your teeth to take pictures, and then create a mold of your smile. We then send the images and impressions off to Invisalign, where they will create the trays needed. Then we will have you back to fit you with your first aligner. After that, you will need to come and see us every 2-6 weeks, depending on the treatment plan we develop.

To see the best results using Invisalign aligner trays, we advise that you wear your aligners 23 hours a day, taking them out to eat, drink, and brush your teeth.

Can you eat with Invisalign® in?

Unlike standard braces you can take your aligners out during the day. It would be best if you did so while eating and drinking dark-colored liquids to not break or stain the aligner. After eating, we advise that you brush your teeth before putting the aligners back in your mouth to avoid food sticking to the inside of the tray. At Meason Orthodontics, we also advise that you do not eat sticky foods with or without the aligners on. If you have any questions on how to take care of your Invisalign trays, contact us today!
