Many of our patients are unfamiliar with what Invisalign is, and exactly how it works. Invisalign appeals to many of our patients because it is a clear and customized alternative to braces.  While traditional braces will utilize wires and brackets to shift your teeth, Invisalign instead uses clear aligners that gradually move your teeth, and these aligners are unnoticeable by others.

The Invisalign Process

The Invisalign System is an impressive treatment option, as it effectively straightens teeth using modern technologies, including 3-D computer graphics. Treatment consists of a series of customized aligners that you will replace about every two weeks. Each of these sets of trays will move your teeth gradually, making way for straight teeth and a stunning smile. Here’s exactly how it works:


First, you will visit your Bloomington and Lincoln, LI orthodontics office, Bowers Orthodontic Specialists. Here, we will determine if you are eligible for Invisalign.

Next, if you are a good candidate for this treatment, Dr. Bowers will send over an individualized treatment plan to Invisalign’s labs, allowing them to build your customized aligners using their advanced and streamlined technology. Typically, you will end up with about 12 to 48 aligners.

Third, you will begin to wear your custom aligners! You should wear each set for about two weeks, and strive to have them in for approximately 22 hours a day. They should only be taken out when eating or brushing and flossing your teeth.

Finally, your smile will begin changing! You will see your teeth shift gradually until they are in their proper positions. You’ll be pleased with your beautiful new smile.
