What is Invisalign?
Invisalign clear aligners are an orthodontic system and are the modern way to straighten teeth without metal or wire. Invisalign aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing; and you can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth: and there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions. Many of our patients had never considered traditional braces but are now happily and comfortably improving their smiles with Invisalign.

The Invisalign Process
The Invisalign process begins with Dr. Hakim taking an impression or mold of your teeth that shows how your teeth are currently misaligned. The impression is scanned into a computer that uses special software to make a series of 3-D models of your teeth. Each model shows how your teeth will need to move in order to become properly aligned. The plastic aligners will be designed based on each of these models so that, when worn in the proper order, they can slowly shift your teeth into their proper positions. Most people will need between 18 and 30 aligners, changed every two weeks or so, to complete treatment.
- You’ll wear each set of Aligners for about two weeks.
- You’ll Remove them only to eat, drink, brush and floss.
- Your teeth will move gradually each week.
