Benefits of Invisalign
How It Works
Straightening Teeth with Invisalign
Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners, which are shaped similar to a retainer or a night guard for teeth grinding. These aligners are designed to fit perfectly over your teeth and exert gentle pressure to shift them toward the proper position.
About every two weeks, you’ll switch to a new aligner, and this process will begin again. Each set of new aligners moves your teeth closer and closer to their ideal position. Your treatment will be developed by Dr. Pizzi and the Invisalign team to ensure that your teeth are moving at the proper rate.

How Long Will I Wear Invisalign?
Most patients can be treated with a series of about 20-24 aligners, which means the average treatment time is about a year. It’s important to note, though, that treatment time can vary. If you only have minor teeth alignment issues, your treatment may be very quick. However, if you have more severe orthodontic problems, you may need to wear Invisalign for longer than a year. For an accurate assessment of your expected Invisalign treatment length, schedule an orthodontic consultation with Dr. Pizzi.
