How Does Invisalign Work To Straighten Teeth?

More than 15 million people to date have trusted Invisalign to give them the beautiful, healthy smile they’ve always wanted. Invisalign uses a series of barely noticeable, removable plastic aligners to transform your smile in a fraction of the time it takes braces to align your teeth.

Invisalign aligners are made from a patented, extremely durable, and comfortable plastic material called SmartTrack. The Invisalign process involves your orthodontist creating a digital scan of your teeth using 3D technology. From that scan, your orthodontist will be able to plan your Invisalign treatment from start to finish, and you’ll get your first set of custom-made Invisalign aligners.

Every two to three weeks, as your teeth gradually shift into their desired positions, you’ll switch out your aligners for a new set. One of the best parts of Invisalign treatment is that you only need to come visit us every 10-12 weeks, so you get more time back in your schedule! The key to the success of your treatment is to keep your clear aligners in for 20-22 hours each day. Because they are removable, you’ll be able to take them out to eat without any restrictions and continue your normal dental hygiene routine. 

The Invisalign Process in 5 Steps

When you come to Markovitz Orthodontics desiring Invisalign treatment, we will guide you through the simple process and educate you on everything you need to know so that your treatment is a success.

Here are the 5 steps you can expect to follow from your Invisalign consultation to your new, beautiful smile.

Initial Consultation

Your journey to a dazzling smile begins with an in-depth analysis of your teeth, bite and dental goals. We'll determine if Invisalign is the ideal treatment for you and discuss the specifics, like treatment duration, which varies, but could be as little as 6 months.

Digital Molding

Using our advanced iTero digital scanner we create a precise model of your dental structure, which is sent to Invisalign labs for your custom-fitted trays.

First Tray Fitting

When your personalized aligners are ready, we may place nearly invisible attachments on your teeth for a secure fit. You'll leave our office with your trays in place and a comprehensive aftercare guide.

Periodic Check-Ins

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign allows for fewer office visits. We'll schedule occasional appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment.

Revel in Your New Smile

After your treatment concludes, you'll enjoy a beautifully aligned smile! All that’ll be left will be to maintain your new smile with custom-fitted retainers.

Invisalign Teen

Navigating the teenage years can be challenging, but achieving a stunning smile doesn’t have to be, thanks to Invisalign Teen. While similar to Invisalign for adults, this specialized treatment considers the unique needs of a teen’s lifestyle and developing jaw. Noteworthy features include a compliance indicator to ensure the trays are worn for the recommended 22 hours a day, and a mandibular advancement feature that addresses jaw and bite issues common among tweens and teens. Invisalign Teen also comes with up to six free replacement trays, making it a practical choice for active young lives. 

Invisalign for Adults

Age is just a number when it comes to achieving the smile of your dreams. With millions of adults opting for teeth straightening later in life, Invisalign offers a convenient and discreet way to fine-tune your smile. These clear aligners gradually correct various dental issues, from gaps to misalignments, all while fitting into your busy lifestyle. Whether you’re in your 30s, 40s, 50s, or beyond it’s never too late to invest in a more confident you. 

For those who need an all-encompassing solution, Invisalign Comprehensive offers ultimate flexibility and amazing results. With no limit on the number of aligners you can receive, it’s ideal for treating a variety of complex cases such as overcrowding, underbites, and overbites. Tailored to your specific needs, this option covers moderate to severe malocclusions, and even pre-restorative complexities.

Falling between the Comprehensive and Lite packages, Invisalign Moderate is a 20-stage treatment designed to be completed in 5 to 12 months. It offers predictable tooth movement for moderate malocclusion cases. Customization options like compliance indicators and precision cuts further enhance treatment outcomes.

Designed for mild to moderate malocclusion, Invisalign Lite is a 14-stage treatment that also comes with one set of additional aligners. This option is perfect for pre-restorative or non-extraction cases, offering the same technological prowess that has made Invisalign a trusted choice in orthodontic treatment.

If you’re looking for a quick and cost-effective way to address minor dental issues, Invisalign Express is your go-to option. With a series of either five or ten aligner sets, treatment can be as brief as 3 months. This package is perfect for those who need minor corrections or who have experienced orthodontic relapse.

Invisalign Frequently Asked Questions

Invisalign is a versatile treatment capable of addressing a variety of dental issues just as efficiently as traditional braces and, often, much quicker. Here’s a list of conditions that Invisalign can often correct in adults, teens, and children:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gaps
  • Open bite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Jaw misalignment
  • Narrow arches

Invisalign offers a convenient and nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth, but it does have some limitations. Here are a few things to consider:

Serious Bite Problems

Invisalign is less effective than braces for severe bite issues.

Improperly-Shaped Teeth 

Misshapen teeth can disrupt the alignment, making Invisalign less effective.

Severely-Rotated Teeth

Invisalign can only rotate teeth up to 20 degrees.

Very Large Gaps Between Teeth

Invisalign is not recommended for gaps larger than 6mm.

Raising And Lowering Teeth

Invisalign has limited capacity for “extrusion” and “intrusion,” meaning it’s not able to produce enough vertical force to move teeth up or down.

Invisalign aligners offer a flexible and nearly invisible alternative to traditional metal braces, with several key advantages:

Eat What You Want

Easily remove your aligners while eating, allowing you to enjoy any food you like.

Uninterrupted Lifestyle 

Engage in regular activities without the worry of damaging your aligners, thanks to their removable nature.

Easy Oral Hygiene

Brush and floss without any hindrance, maintaining a clean and healthy mouth effortlessly.

Comfort and Aesthetics 

Custom-made for a snug fit, Invisalign trays are virtually invisible and more comfortable than metal brackets and wires.

Fewer Office Visits

Invisalign treatment often requires fewer check-ups compared to other orthodontic options, saving you time and effort.

At Markovitz Orthodontics, we aim to make your Invisalign journey as smooth as possible, that includes the payment process. We’re happy to work with most PPO insurance plans from major carriers, ensuring that you get the most out of your coverage. 

We also offer no-interest monthly payment plans. After an initial down payment, you can spread the cost of your treatment over several months. During your complimentary consultation, our Treatment Coordinator will collaborate with you to create a personalized payment plan that suits your budget and needs. 

Feel free to call us at (410) 659-0770 and speak to our Insurance Coordinator to ask any questions you may have about coverage or financing options.

Invisalign is a versatile treatment option suitable for both adults and teens seeking a discreet way to improve their smiles. It can address a range of teeth-straightening and bite issues, making it a practical choice for many.

Previous braces wearers who’ve noticed their teeth shifting back can benefit from an Invisalign “tune-up.” Ideal candidates should also be responsible, as the aligners need to be worn up to 22 hours a day for maximum effectiveness.

Additionally, good oral hygiene is essential, not only to maintain the aligners but also to reduce the risk of oral infections. Before starting with Invisalign, it’s crucial to resolve any existing dental issues like cavities or gingivitis. So if you maintain good dental health and are committed to the process, Invisalign could be the perfect fit for you.

Maintaining your Invisalign aligners is simple but essential for both your dental health and the effectiveness of the treatment. You can clean them in several ways:


  • Brushing: Use toothpaste and a soft-bristled brush to gently scrub both the inside and outside of your aligner. Always rinse it with lukewarm water afterward.
  • Denture Cleaner: Another option is to use a denture cleaner tablet. Dissolve the tablet in warm water and soak your aligner for the time recommended on the package.
  • Cleaning Crystals: Specially designed for Invisalign trays, these crystals dissolve in water and offer a hassle-free way to keep your aligners sanitized without brushing.
  • Antibacterial Soap: A clear antibacterial soap can also effectively clean your aligners. Just ensure you rinse them thoroughly afterward.


Remember, the golden rule is clean teeth plus a clean aligner. Inserting a clean aligner on dirty teeth can lead to dental issues like cavities and gingivitis. Make cleaning your aligners a daily routine to ensure optimal results.

During your Invisalign treatment, you’ll generally need to see Dr. Markovitz approximately once every ten weeks. These regular check-ups are important to ensure that your aligners are effectively guiding your teeth into their proper positions. Your orthodontist will evaluate your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan to keep you on track toward a beautiful, straight smile.

After your Invisalign treatment is complete, you’ll need to wear a retainer to maintain your newly aligned smile. Retainers help prevent your teeth from gradually shifting back to their original positions, a phenomenon that can happen after any type of orthodontic treatment, be it traditional braces or Invisalign.

Yes, having crowns doesn’t necessarily disqualify you from getting Invisalign. If you have one or two teeth modified with crowns, you can typically still undergo Invisalign treatment or other teeth-straightening methods. However, the specific number of crowns and their placement could affect your eligibility, so it’s best to consult with Dr. Markovitz to determine if Invisalign is the right option for you.

Invisalign aligners are crafted from a cutting-edge, flexible plastic known as SmartTrack®. This material was explicitly engineered to facilitate Invisalign treatments, ensuring a snug, comfortable fit while actively shifting your teeth into their ideal positions. Importantly, these aligners are FDA-approved and free from any BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten, prioritizing both your oral health and general well-being.
