At Reva Dental, we are delighted to offer Invisalign clear braces to our patients. Invisalign complements our existing Six Month Smiles orthodontic treatments and means that we offer a broad range of effective, affordable solutions for people whose teeth are too crowded, crooked or have spaces between them, as well as for those whose teeth may have shifted after having worn braces in their youth.
Invisalign treatment is a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign shows you your complete treatment plan from the initial position of your teeth towards the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth to move them little by little.
Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, gradually moving towards the projected final position. The treatment time depends on your specific needs and will be decided by your dentist.
WHAT IS INVISALIGN?
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign aligners move teeth through a series of carefully controlled movements. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign treatment not only controls the amount of movement that each aligner delivers, but also the timing of the movement. So, at each stage, only certain teeth can move, following the Invisalign treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible and typically hardly anyone notices that you’re wearing them. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would to maintain your normal oral hygiene routine.
Unlike traditional fixed braces, there are no metal brackets or wires. This means that in most cases less time is spent in your Invisalign Provider’s practice for adjustments.
And finally, the Invisalign System allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you begin treatment, so you can see how your teeth are expected to look when your treatment is complete.

How long does the Invisalign treatment take?
The duration of treatment depends on the severity of your case, which determines the number of aligners you need. However, the average is about 12 months, but only your dentist can determine the length of your treatment.
Are there restrictions on what I can eat while in treatment?
No. Unlike traditional wires and brackets, with the Invisalign® System you can eat whatever you like while in treatment because you remove your aligners to eat and drink. This also makes it simple to brush and floss your teeth after each meal to maintain good oral hygiene, before re-inserting your aligners.
