Invisalign® straightens teeth using a series of clear, virtually invisible "aligners", Invisalign gently and gradually straightens your teeth. Most people won’t even know you’re wearing Invisalign and the aligners are removable so you can eat whatever you want and easily brush and floss as you normally would.

How does Invisalign Work?
The invisible aligners look similar to teeth-whitening trays. A series of aligners are custom-made for you, to move your teeth in the sequence determined by Drs. Wu and Jolley. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks before moving onto the next set. It is necessary that you wear your aligners for 22 hours per day and only remove them for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.

Will wearing Invisalign aligners affect my speech?
Invisalign aligners may temporarily mildly affect speech of some people for a short time. However, as you get used to having aligners in your mouth, this should disappear.

Does insurance cover Invisalign?
In general, if a patient has orthodontic coverage, Invisalign should be covered to the same extent as conventional braces.

Does Invisalign really work?
Yes. Over 4 million patients worldwide with a variety of orthodontic problems have been treated with Invisalign.
