What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a popular method for straightening
teeth that uses a series of comfortable, invisible, removable aligners to
gently guide teeth into place. Using 3D computer imaging technology, your
doctor will design a treatment plan that’s unique to you. A series of clear,
custom aligners are created according to your treatment plan, which gently
shift the position of your teeth until your smile is perfect.
Getting Started with Invisalign
Drs. Gruelle and Dempsey design every Invisalign treatment plan for their patients. Once your treatment plan is established, you’ll receive a series of Invisalign aligners. Patients wear each set of aligners for 7 days or less, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
We recommend regular appointments to check your progress about every ten weeks. During treatment most patients will use between 40 and 60 sets of aligners and finish treatment in 9 to 15 months.

patients typically appreciate is that because the aligners are removable,
eating, brushing, and flossing is completely unaffected during treatment. For a
lot of people, the aligners are also more comfortable than metal brackets and
wires. A lot of patients also like the 3D imaging used to create the treatment
plan because it allows them to see the final results before they even get
The impression-less iTero™ digital imaging system is also a favorite of our patients. No more goopy impressions!
