How Invisalign® Works

Posted .

Do you want to align your smile, but are unsure of the best way to do it? If so, then you have come to the right place! Here at Alexander Orthodontics in Queensbury, New York, we care about your smile and oral health, which is why we are proud to offer Invisalign® and to talk to you about how it can help your smile.


Invisalign is a unique system set up to align your smile discreetly. It is a system of clear aligners that are custom-made to fit over your existing teeth. Every two weeks, you come back in to visit our office and switch out your previous aligner for a new one. Over time, these aligners will gently move your teeth into the ideal alignment.


With Invisalign, the appliances are clear and very thin, making them hard for others to notice them. They simply snap on and off when you want to eat, so you can eat your favorite delicious foods or drinks guilt free! However, Invisalign needs to be worn for at least 22 hours per day for you to stay on track for your treatment period.


If you feel you are ready to have a smile you can be proud of, or if you still have questions and would like to learn more, please call Dr. Steven Alexander today to schedule an appointment at 518-793-8511. Our friendly staff is happy to help you achieve positive oral health and the smile of your dreams.
