Transform Your Smile with Invisalign.

At Dr. Stuart Katz and Associates, we are proud to offer Invisalign, a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth discreetly and comfortably. With Invisalign, you can achieve the smile of your dreams without the inconvenience of traditional braces. Our experienced team will guide you through every step of the process to ensure a successful and satisfying orthodontic journey.


Invisalign utilizes a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually shift teeth into their desired position. Each set of aligners is custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth and is worn for about two weeks before being replaced with the next set in the series. Over time, this gentle pressure helps to straighten teeth and correct alignment issues effectively.

Invisalign offers numerous advantages over traditional braces, including improved aesthetics, greater comfort, and enhanced convenience. The clear aligners are virtually invisible when worn, allowing you to maintain a natural appearance throughout treatment. Additionally, the removable nature of the aligners means you can easily brush, floss, and eat without any restrictions, promoting better oral hygiene and overall comfort.

During your initial consultation, our dental team will evaluate your oral health and discuss your treatment goals to determine if Invisalign is right for you. If so, we will take digital impressions of your teeth to create a customized treatment plan. Throughout the treatment process, you will wear your aligners as directed by your dentist and attend periodic check-up appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Curious about Invisalign? Here are some common questions and answers to help you learn more about this innovative orthodontic solution.

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of your orthodontic issues and your individual treatment plan. On average, treatment with Invisalign typically lasts between 12 to 18 months, although some cases may be shorter or longer.

Invisalign is effective for treating a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps between teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites. However, severe orthodontic problems may require alternative treatments. Your dentist or orthodontist can evaluate your specific case and determine if Invisalign is suitable for you.

One of the advantages of Invisalign is that there are no dietary restrictions. Since the aligners are removable, you can take them out before eating and enjoy all your favorite foods without worrying about damaging the aligners. However, it’s essential to brush your teeth before reinserting the aligners to maintain good oral hygiene.

For optimal results, it’s recommended to wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, removing them only when eating, drinking (except for water), brushing, and flossing. Consistently wearing your aligners as prescribed ensures that your teeth move according to the treatment plan and speeds up the overall treatment process.

While it’s generally best to wear your Invisalign aligners as much as possible to maintain progress, you can remove them for special occasions or important events. Just be sure to wear them for the recommended number of hours each day and avoid leaving them out for extended periods to prevent delays in treatment progress.

Invisalign aligners may initially cause a slight change in speech patterns for some individuals. However, most people adjust to wearing the aligners within a few days to a week, and any speech difficulties typically resolve quickly as the mouth adapts to the aligners’ presence.

Invisalign is suitable for both teenagers and adults. There is no upper age limit for Invisalign treatment, as long as the patient has healthy teeth and gums. In fact, many adults choose Invisalign as a discreet and convenient orthodontic option to straighten their teeth and improve their smiles.

After completing Invisalign treatment, you will transition to the retention phase, during which you will wear retainers to maintain the alignment of your teeth. Your dentist or orthodontist will provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your smile post-treatment and ensure that your results last for years to come. Regular dental check-ups will also be necessary to monitor your oral health and the stability of your smile.
