Invisalign® Clear Aligners

For adults and teens looking to straighten their smiles, Invisalign offers a smart alternative to traditional braces. As a proud Diamond Plus provider, Hess Orthodontics provides superior care for your smile. Start your smile journey with a complimentary consultation now!


What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

For over two decades, the Invisalign clear align system has given over 3 million patients a convenient and comfortable solution to braces. Invisalign substitutes metal hardware and rubber bands for a clear plastic appliance specifically molded to make small, gradual movements to your teeth. Over time, new aligners are changed out as the patient progressively achieves their desired results. 

Invisalign is an attractive alternative for adults and teens alike. Consult with our expert team of orthodontic professionals to learn if clear aligners are the right for you! Schedule your complimentary consultation today!

What Are The Benefits of Invisalign Treatment?

Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible in appearance and allow the patient to enjoy the perks of an ideal smile. Invisalign wearers enjoy flexible treatment plans with aligners that the patient can easily remove when eating or drinking. These benefits allow for a cleaner and more comfortable treatment experience.

Remove With Ease

Invisalign clear aligners are not stationary appliances. Therefore you can remove them quickly. During treatment, you will need to commit to wearing your aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours per day.

Low Visibility

Invisalign aligners are made out of pliable, transparent acrylic material that fits neatly over your teeth. This custom-fitted tray gives your smile a more natural look, allowing you more peace of mind during your day. 

Comfort That Fits Your Lifestyle

With Invisalign, you don’t need to worry about rubber bands or metal wires scratching the inside of your mouth. The smooth, custom-fitted aligners are tailor-fitted to your smile; no poking or prodding.

How Does Invisalign Get Results?

Over the last 20+ years, Invisalign has revolutionized orthodontic technology. Using a series of clear plastic trays, Invisalign users get to enjoy a comfortable and discreet treatment. Many people are surprised to learn that invisalign can handle severe irregularities like overbites, underbites, gapped teeth, and crowded teeth.

During your complimentary consultation, one of our team members will create a 3D image of your teeth. This process will help your team make a plan that will monitor and strategize your ideal alignment. We will then share this information with you, even giving you a digital preview of how your teeth will change over time. Dr. Hess has used Invisalign to get extraordinary results. 

If Invisalign isn’t right for your needs, don’t worry! We offer many options, including clear braces, Damon Braces, and traditional metal braces. 

After receiving your first Invisalign aligner, you’ll need to check in with the team at Hess Orthodontics roughly every 12 weeks. Many appointments will be as simple as switching to the next Invisalign aligner set.

Getting ideal results requires wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours a day. While easy to remove, we encourage you only to take the aligner out when necessary, as prolonged periods without wearing your aligners may delay treatment.

How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?

Every set of teeth is unique, just like you! There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all treatment. You may need different levels of intervention depending on your needs. However, many patients complete their treatment time within 12 to 18 months. But don’t be surprised if you notice results in as little as six weeks! 

After your treatment is done, patients will be required to use a retainer as instructed by their doctor. Schedule a complimentary consultation with Hess Orthodontics today.
