Straighten Your Smile with Invisalign®

All the Benefits of a Straight Smile Without All the Metal



Invisalign, also referred to as clear aligners, has become an extremely popular and wildly effective alternative to traditional metal braces. These discreet clear aligners work in a series of trays, each tray adding slightly more pressure to your teeth in order to gradually guide them into the desired positions. Invisalign is entirely customized for you, with each tray manufactured to represent each completely customized phase of your treatment plan.

Your smile journey doesn't have to be obvious. Learn how you can get the same results braces give with a series of almost invisible clear aligners. 

Why Invisalign?

Invisalign improves your smile and bite pattern using clear, customized, and removable aligners instead of traditional wires and brackets. Teens and adults are opting for this convenient and flexible treatment option. One of the biggest ways Invisalign draws users in is the added benefit of being virtually invisible, and extremely discreet. Clear aligners give you the option to smile confidently and freely, without having to second guess the look of your smile.

Invisalign Teens

Teens love the discreet look of Invisalign. High school and social events can be hard enough without the added stress of braces, and being able to correct a crooked smile in secret can be a huge perk. As a parent, you can track their progress through compliance indicators that show you how much or how little their aligners are being worn, so you know they're getting the most out of their treatment. 

Invisalign for Adults

Adults can benefit from clear aligners, too. If you had orthodontic treatment at a young age and your teeth shifted back, or you're just looking to fix crooked teeth for hygiene and health reasons, Invisalign is a great and comfortable option. Invisalign can give you an edge at work, during job interviews, on dates, and can give you the confidence to pursue your goals and succeed. 

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign lets you achieve your dream smile without the traditional metal brackets and wires that accompany braces. Invisalign can be faster, more comfortable, and far more discreet. Patients love being able to eat whatever they want, smile with confidence, and 

How Do I Get Invisalign Treatment?

Like all orthodontic treatment, your orthodontist will first make sure that you're a proper candidate for Invisalign. The aligners are incredibly versatile with the ability to treat a variety of common dental irregularities, but just to be on the safe side, we'll complete a thorough examination so we know with absolute certainty that Invisalign is right for you.

The Invisalign Process

Our orthodontist will complete a comprehensive orthodontic examination to determine whether Invisalign® is right for you. We'll take x-rays, pictures, and digital impressions of your teeth using an iTero scanner. Our orthodontist will use this information to develop a detailed treatment plan. When you come in for the delivery appointment, our team will show you how to wear the aligners and how to care for them.

5 Reasons to Choose Invisalign® Instead of Braces

Virtually Invisible

The main reason why people choose Invisalign is because they are almost impossible to see unless you know that they are there!

Easier to Clean

Braces are sometimes difficult to clean. Food and plaque get stuck between your teeth making it difficult to clean those hard to reach places. Invisalign is completely removable so you can simply take them out, wash them off and put them back.

No Food Restrictions

Because Invisalign trays are removable, you can remove them before you eat. Popcorn, Gummy Bears and Chewing Gum can all be enjoyed when the trays are out.

Fewer Trips to the Orthodontist

Braces require patients to visit the orthodontist to get their wires tightened while Invisalign patients receive multiple aligners that they switch out on their own. That means fewer trips to the orthodontist!

More Comfortable

Although there is some mild discomfort associated with Invisalign, they are typically more comfortable than braces because there are no sharp edges from brackets that may irritate your cheeks.

The Invisalign Process

Find out if Invisalign® is right for you by learning about what's involved in the process.

Our orthodontist will complete a comprehensive orthodontic examination to determine whether Invisalign® is right for you. You can even view your own virtual treatment plan to see the end result before starting treatment!

Now that you’ve decided to get Invisalign®, our team at City Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry will take x-rays, pictures, and digital impressions of your teeth using an iTero scanner. Our orthodontist will use this information to develop a detailed treatment plan, including each individual tooth movement and the approximate treatment length. A 3D virtual representation of your treatment plan will show you how your teeth are expected to move at each stage of the treatment.

A set of custom-made aligners will be fabricated for you. When you come in for the delivery appointment, our team will show you how to wear the aligners and how to care for them. As each aligner will be worn for one week, our team will give you a series of the trays to keep at home where you can switch the old tray for the new.

As you switch aligners each week, your teeth will gradually shift into the correct position. Every two months or so, our orthodontist will conduct a progress assessment to ensure you are on the right track to achieving your new smile. Our orthodontist will also give you additional aligners at this time as needed.

Congratulations on achieving your goal of a beautiful new smile! In order to keep your teeth in place, our orthodontist will design a set of retainers for you. By wearing them as recommended, your teeth will stay in their correct positions.



As mentioned above, Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear aligners. Each new set puts a little more pressure on your teeth in all the right places, helping to slowly guide them into the desired positions to complete your smile transformation. It's important to wear your aligners as much as possible so each set has the opportunity to fully contribute to the success of your treatment, along with staying true to the desired timeline. 

Our orthodontist will tell you to switch aligners roughly every one to two weeks, depending on the amount of time your specific treatment calls for. Every two months or so you'll have a standing appointment with one of our specialists, who will assess your progress and ensure everything is going according to plan. During these appointments, new aligners may be given as needed for treatment. If everything seems to be going smoothly, you'll be sent on your way and instructed to circle back in two months!

Upon treatment completion, there are still a few more steps before we can send you to live happily ever after with your newfound smile. Sometimes after orthodontic treatment teeth tend to shift back into their old places, undoing all the work you committed to over the last couple years. To ensure this doesn't happen and your new smile remains yours, our orthodontist will design a set of retainers for you that are custom made, just for you. These retainers are to be worn as instructed, usually at night while you sleep, in order to properly maintain your new smile. By wearing these retainers as directed, your teeth will stay in the correct positions.

My daughter (who is 3.5 years old now) has been to this office numerous times to see their Pediatric specialist. She is definitely not an easy child to please, but has done so well each time (did someone say Terrible Twos and beyond?!). I am so amazed by the genuine care and attention the staff and dentists have given us. I can't wait for my son's first appointment coming up soon! Definitely recommend if you are looking for the best care in town 👍🏼👍🏼

Awesome office and staff! Highly recommend! I’m in my late 20’s and I was very embarrassed to get braces at my age, but I felt comfortable at this office, Dr. Saleh and his staff are very knowledgeable and take they’re time to listen to all your concerns. I’m 4 months into my treatment and it’s been a very good experience so far!

We had such a great experience here. My daughter is 2 and a half years old. I tried my best to prepare her for the dentist by showing her pictures of what the rooms would look like. It is great that there are themed rooms because it makes the kids excited to see the dentist. The staff were very friendly, Dr.Caldwell was great with my daughter! He is also a father and had a lot of relatable experiences with his child that he shared with us to give us advice on how to wean her off her soother. He was very pleased with her teeth and said to come back in one year for a follow up. This was a fun experience for both my daughter and I and I believe we found her perfect dentist match. Will be recommending and returning.
