A Clear Alternative to Braces
Invisalign® aligners are a series of customized clear trays. Each are designed for individual patients, and as they are switched out, they slowly move the teeth into alignment. Our dentist at Sharda Family Dentistry or your orthodontist will carefully keep track of your progress before, during and after treatment. Because these aligners are not permanent, they can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
Shorter Treatment Time
With Invisalign® aligners, patients can more comfortably straighten their teeth and correct misalignment. Trays are replaced about every other week, gently pushing and moving the teeth. Every few months, Dr. Alok Sharda will check up on your teeth. Usually treatment takes about a year, with a total of 18 to 30 different clear aligners. However, this will vary per patient.
Invisalign Braces: Comfortable and Clear
Each aligner is made of a clear, moldable plastic. This means that they are nearly invisible when being worn and patients can show off their smile even while undergoing treatment. The trays are also removable and can be taken out to eat and drink or for special occasions.

What are clear aligners?
Invisalign clear aligners are a modern way to straighten your teeth. Instead of using metal brackets and wires, the Invisalign® system uses plastic trays that have been customized to your smile.

- Clear and virtually invisible when being worn
- Removable and can be taken out when eating or drinking
