How Invisalign® Works
Instead of using brackets and wires to straighten teeth, Invisalign® uses a series of custom-made clear aligners. You wear each aligner for 20 – 22 hours each day for about two weeks before progressing to the next. As you work your way through all of your aligners, your teeth gradually shift into their proper positions.
At your first Invisalign® consultation, we evaluate your candidacy for the treatment and take some images and impressions of your teeth. After Invisalign® fabricates your aligners and sends them back to us, you can begin wearing them. You must visit Dr. Palluck periodically throughout your treatment for brief checkups so we can monitor your progress. These appointments usually last just a few minutes.

Invisalign® is made out of patented material that is designed for comfort and precise tooth movements.
