Invisalign® treatment for adults
Want to straighten your smile, but worried about the look of braces? Well, you can smile all the way through treatment thanks to barely there, Invisalign® treatment for adults.
What is Invisalign® treatment?
Invisalign® treatment doesn’t require any metal brackets or wires to shape your smile. Instead, it uses a series of custom clear plastic trays called aligners to guide your teeth into alignment. The aligners are extra discreet, making them a popular choice with client-facing professionals and parents.
One of the best things about Invisalign® aligners is that they are removable. This means you don’t have to adjust your diet during treatment, and can brush and floss your teeth as usual. You can even remove them for special events, as long as you wear them for 22 hours a day.
How does Invisalign® treatment work?
During your free consultation with Smile Health Orthodontics, we will use our cutting-edge intraoral scanner to make a 3D model of your smile – without the need for any messy bite molds. Dr. Solomon will use this model to design your custom treatment.
You will be given a series of custom aligners, each shaped a bit differently, that will guide your teeth into optimal positions over time. To move through treatment, you will switch to a new aligner set from home as directed instead of coming in for adjustment appointments.
Invisalign® treatment just got easier
Our team prides ourselves on using the latest technology to make your orthodontic journey more convenient. That’s why we are so excited to offer Dental Monitoring to our Invisalign® patients. This app allows us to check your progress remotely so you can skip the trip to our office.
Best yet? If you have any questions or concerns about treatment, you can check in with our team at any time through the app. The aligners are more comfortable than metal braces.

FAQs about Invisalign® treatment for adults
Am I too old for Invisalign® treatment?
As long as you have teeth, you are never too old for Invisalign treatment. We have many patients in their 70s!
Will I need to miss work during Invisalign® treatment?
At Smile Health Orthodontics, we try our best to work around your schedule. We offer evening appointments Monday through Thursday, as well as remote treatment monitoring through the Dental Monitoring app – so you don’t need to visit our office as often.
Will Invisalign® treatment affect my speech?
No, your aligners shouldn’t affect your speech. You may find that you sound a little different for the first couple of days as your mouth adjusts to the new appliance, but this should be temporary.
How will I need to adjust my diet with Invisalign® treatment?
In most cases, you won't need to adjust your diet at all! Because you take your aligners out for meal times, you can continue to eat regularly throughout treatment.

Your Invisalign® treatment is completely custom – and so is the associated cost. We won’t know the precise cost of your treatment until we see you for your free consultation. If the cost is a concern, rest assured that we have flexible payment plans to assist you.
