Invisalign®

Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It's virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you're straightening your teeth. Best of all, the aligners are removable, so you can still enjoy your favorite foods without having to limit your diet.

Clearly Different

The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.

Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners - as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss.

As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually - week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you'll be smiling like you never have before!

To ensure the best possible results, only an orthodontist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign. Invisalign is not intended for children and is not appropriate for every adult. Only an orthodontist can determine if this treatment is an effective option for you. To see if Invisalign can help you achieve the smile you've always wanted, contact us to make an appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How should I care for my Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign aligners are easy to care for. Here are some tips to help you care for your aligners:

  • Rinse your aligners and your teeth before reinserting the trays
  • Place your aligners in a protective case when you’re not wearing them
  • Brush your teeth and your aligners in the morning
  • Soak your Invisalign once a day

  • While Invisalign treatment requires little maintenance, following the above-mentioned guidelines will ensure you avoid damaging your trays and get the most out of your treatment.

    Is everyone a candidate for Invisalign?

    Even though millions of people have straightened their teeth with the Invisalign system, it’s best suited for patients with mild to moderate tooth misalignment. It can also fix overcrowded teeth, gapped teeth, over/underbite, and crossbite-- for some patients,  it can even improve the shape of your teeth.

    To find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, schedule a consultation with Dr. Katz by contacting our Greensboro office by calling (336) 286-5800 or our Eden office at (336) 627-1537.  During your consultation, he can evaluate your oral health and determine an appropriate treatment plan for you.

    Is Invisalign painful?

    When you swap out your trays every two weeks, you may feel some discomfort for the first few days.  This is because the new trays are working to gradually shift your teeth into the proper position. As your teeth adjust to the new trays, any discomfort will fade quickly.

    What if I lose, break, or damage an aligner. What should I do?

    If you lose, break, or damage an aligner, be sure to contact our office immediately. We’ll contact the lab to order you a replacement set so you can stay on track with your treatment plan.

    In the meantime, you can use your previous set of aligners to ensure your teeth aren’t shifting out of place. Don’t try to fix the aligners at home, as this typically doesn’t work and may only set you back on your projected treatment time.
