An Invisalign® treatment at Dr. Appelle’s office will give you your dream smile.  Invisalign® is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth.  

Special occasion coming up? No problem — just take your Invisalign® aligners out for that time and then put them back in when you’re ready. Even when you’re wearing aligners, most people won’t know you’re wearing them, because they are almost invisible!

Invisalign® is ideal for a busy schedule, with few doctor visits required (approximately every six weeks).

Invisalign® Treatment Benefits

  • Dr. Appelle has been an Invisalign® provider for over 10 years.

  • Aligners are aesthetically appealing during treatment, the trays are barely noticeable.

  • Invisalign trays are smooth and comfortable.  There is little to no discomfort, especially compared to braces.

  • Invisalign is convenient and can removed easily for eating, brushing, and flossing.

How Does It Work?

Invisalign® uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.

  • The aligners are made through a combination of Dr. Appelle’s expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.

  • You will wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

  • About every 2 weeks, the aligners are replaced with the next in the series.

  • Each aligner shifts your teeth little by little until they have moved into the correct position as prescribed by Dr. Appelle.

  • Approximately once every 6 weeks you will visit Dr. Appelle to ensure the treatment is progressing as planned.

  • The total treatment time averages 9 – 15 months.  The average number of aligners you need for treatment is between 18 and 30, but, this will vary from case to case.
