What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a product of Align Technology, Inc. and is used as a treatment for
- Invisalign® is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces.
- Invisalign® uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your
teeth without metal wires or brackets.

The Invisalign procedure requires a specially trained dental professional, like
Dr. Uma Patel, who has been certified by Align Technology.
The primary benefits of Invisalign are:
- Clear aligners make Invisalign treatment almost invisible.
- Removable Invisalign aligners mean you can eat and drink
whatever you want and always maintain optimum dental
hygiene by brushing and flossing normally.
- Comfortable Invisalign aligners are replaced frequently so
you may forget you’re even straightening your teeth and
will spend less time in the dentist’s chair having
Your Invisalign treatment will consist of a series of aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is
individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. And since your Invisalign system
is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only, with a plan devised by you and your dentist or orthodontist, you know
you'll end up with a smile that truly fits.
If you're ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign is your answer. Although there are many choices
out there, no other works as effortlessly as the Invisalign system.
Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life. Check out the benefits below:
Will Invisalign work for me?
Not only is Invisalign versatile, helping to correct a broad range of
dental and orthodontic issues, but it really works. And there are
over a million smiles to back that up. But a confident smile isn't the
only benefit of correcting your dental issues with custom-made
Learn more about several common issues below that an
experienced Invisalign doctor can work with you to correct.
Overly crowded teeth: This occurs when there is
simply a lack of room within your jaw for all of your
teeth to fit normally. When left untreated, overly
crowded teeth can cause dental decay, an increase in
chances of gum disease, and can prevent the normal
function of teeth.
Widely spaced teeth: This occurs with abnormal
continued growth of the jaw bone. When teeth are
missing, this issue can also be caused by the other teeth
shifting due to extra space. Spacing issues in teeth can
cause some periodontal diseases.
Crossbite: This occurs when the upper and lower jaws
are both misaligned. It causes one or more upper
teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can
happen on both the front and/or the sides of the
mouth. This issue can cause wear of the teeth, gum
disease, and bone loss.
Overbite: What people commonly refer to as an
"overbite" is known to dental professionals as "overjet."
It occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower
teeth. It's typically caused by either genetics, bad oral
habits, or over development of the bone that supports
the teeth. This issue can lead to gum problems or
irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth and can cause
painful jaw and joint problems.
Underbite: This occurs when the lower teeth protrude
past the front teeth. It's usually caused by
undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the
lower jaw, or both. It can also be caused by missing
upper teeth. This issue can prevent the normal
function of front teeth or molars which can lead to
tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint
An Invisalign Certified Doctor Uma Patel will work with you to create a custom-designed program
that will treat your specific dental or orthodontic issue(s). Your treatment program will consist of a
full set of aligners, made for you, and only you.
