Do you want straighter teeth without having to endure years of wearing unattractive and uncomfortable metal braces? Invisalign® may be the answer for you. We offer Invisalign treatment in addition to our traditional orthodontic treatments. Invisalign teeth aligners are clear, removable trays made from a custom-fitted plastic that work to gradually and gently shift your teeth into alignment for a straight, healthy looking smile. These teeth aligners are virtually invisible, easy to remove for eating and cleaning and have the ability to straighten your teeth in less time than traditional metal braces.
Invisalign lets you keep showing your confident, metal-free smile to the world as the aligners work to gradually straighten your teeth — without anyone having to know. Enjoy a straighter smile in less time, and with no metal, using the advanced Invisalign orthodontic treatment at Kois Orthodontics.
What Can Invisalign Correct?
- Crowded or overlapping teeth
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
- Overbite or underbite
- Malocclusion (“bad bite”), where teeth don’t meet correctly when the jaw is closed

- Smooth, comfortable, custom-made fit — no metal brackets poking you
- Easy-to-remove alignment trays — eat all of your favorite foods
- Simple to clean — remove to clean the trays or brush your teeth

What to Expect from Invisalign Treatment
An Invisalign orthodontic treatment at Kois Orthodontics will begin with Dr. Brienne Roloff creating custom-made aligners to fit your teeth. Dr. Brie uses a state-of-the-art scanning system that replaces messy and often uncomfortable impressions. Along with oral images and x-rays, this allows Invisalign to create your personalized set of aligners for your treatment.
Once you receive your custom-made aligners, it is important that you wear them most of the day and night of your treatment, removing them only when eating, cleaning or brushing and flossing. Invisalign aligners are discreet and easy to remove and put in, and patients often report that they barely notice they are wearing them.
You will be given a new set of aligners to wear approximately every four to six weeks; these aligners will work to gradually shift your teeth into place over the course of your treatment, with the final result being a beautiful, straight smile. The typical Invisalign patient completes treatment in 12 to 18 months, depending on the severity of crowding.
Will the treatment be painful?
Invisalign tends to cause much less discomfort than traditional bracket braces. Each time a patient changes to a new aligner, there may be some temporary discomfort as teeth are moved into their new position. This is normal and is a good sign that the aligners are working.
