Invisalign

With treatment up to 2x faster, you’ll be smiling in no time.

Invisalign

Invisalign treatment involves wearing a series of aligners specially made for your individual dental needs. These aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, or special occasions and are made from a patented thermoplastic material to maximize comfort, appearance, and effectiveness.
Each treatment begins with a consultation with your doctor where you will assess your current smile and map out a customized digital treatment plan. Once you approve your plan and your aligners have been created you will continue ot meet with your doctor regularly to check on your progress and make sure everything is going to plan. Invisalign treatment time is 12 to 18 months on average, although exact treatment times vary based on your unique needs.

Invisalign® Teen

Improve your smile without interrupting your life.

Worried about having metal braces for Prom, yearbook photos, or playing sports?

Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible and most people do not even notice them. Since they are removable, you can eat what you want without any worry of breaking a bracket or rubber band. Invisalign aligners do not interfere with your daily life, since they are:
  • Clear – Virtually invisible and do not show up in photos
  • Removable – Eat what you want, when you want
  • Maximum Comfort – Since the aligners gradually shift your teeth, Invisalign is extremely comfortable to wear
  • Customized – Each set is specific to you, so they are optimized for fast results

VPRO5

Simple. Easy. Fast.

Propel’s VPro5™ Technology

We at Invisible Ortho are now the proud provider of vibration technology with Propel’s VPro5™! Used for just 5 minutes per day, the VPro5™ helps ensure that your clear aligners are fully seated.
Did you know?
Proper aligner seating is very important. Improperly seated aligners can slow treatment, forcing patients to backtrack to previous trays. In addition to prolonging treatment, consequences of incomplete aligner seating can include unnecessary refinement.
Ask about the VPro5™ at your next visit!

The VPro5 Approach

How often should I use it?
Utilize the VPro5™ for just 5 minutes a day. Continue use for the entirety of your orthodontic treatment, or as otherwise directed by Dr. Nick.
How much pressure should I apply?
Bite down gently on the mouthpiece. There is no need to bite down or clench any harder than as needed to support the device.
How do I clean my VPro5?
The mouthpiece should be cleaned after each treatment use. Detach the mouthpiece from the oscillator. Rinse the mouthpiece under water and let dry. Do not rinse or submerge the oscillator; however, it may be wiped with a moist towel.
How to Guide
  1. Connect the mouthpiece to the oscillator.
  2. Confirm that the device feels secure and stable.
  3. Depress (apply firm pressure) the white on-switch on the oscillator to activate vibration function. A blue light will illuminate. Device will slowly ramp up to full vibration.
  4. While wearing your aligners, bite down on the mouthpiece and begin vibration therapy.
  5. The device will function for 5 minutes per use and will automatically shut-off after the duration of treatment.
  6. LED Notification Light blinks green 3 times to indicate cycle is complete. After use, clean and charge device as needed.
