Invisalign® FAQs

What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign uses virtually invisible aligners to gently straighten your teeth. Invisalign uses 3D imaging technology to plan your treatment plan. You can even view your virtual treatment plan! A series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth so that your ideal smile can be reached. Each set of aligners will be worn for about two weeks. As you progress through the aligners, your teeth will move to their final position. Your total treatment time will be determined by Dr. Peter Lee according to your individual needs.

Will Invisalign Disrupt My Lifestyle?

No! You can:

  • Take out your aligners to brush and floss normally
  • Remove your aligners to eat and drink whatever you like
  • Occasionally take out your aligners for a special night out
  • Continue your day-to-day activities
  • Smile with pride with these clear aligners

What Are the Advantages of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so most people will not even notice that you are straightening your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, these removable aligners allow you to eat and drink whatever you like. You can also brush and floss just as easily as normal by removing the aligners. Invisalign aligners do not use metal brackets and wires, so they are much more comfortable than regular braces. In addition, Invisalign requires less visits to OPDSF Orthodontics than traditional braces. Also, Invisalign technology allows you to view your virtual treatment results.
