Invisalign® aligners are a great choice for patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for straightening their smile. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will gradually and gently move to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, Invisalign aligners can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our dentists may recommend Invisalign treatment to correct:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite or crossbite
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign aligners are very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed to eat, brush and floss. We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about Invisalign clear aligners.

At Portland Dental, we are approached by many of our patients looking to improve the appearance of their smile as well as their health. Individuals with gaps, spaces, and poor dental arch alignment may avoid talking to Drs. Kaveendra Ranasinghe, Gerald T. Fujii, and Cameron Schwab about their desire for teeth straightening due to the embarrassing appearance of traditional braces. Fortunately, Portland, Oregon, area patients can undergo invisible braces with Invisalign aligners, eliminating the metal from the smile while improving its alignment discreetly and affordably.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment method that uses clear, customized aligners to gently and gradually move teeth into their desired positions. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is virtually invisible and can be removed when eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth. It is also more comfortable than other orthodontic treatments as the custom-made aligners fit snugly over each individual tooth without irritating the gums or soft oral tissue like metal brackets can. Besides straightening crooked teeth, Invisalign can also correct bite problems such as overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
What is the process of obtaining Invisalign trays?
Invisalign treatment usually starts with a digital scan of your mouth so our dentists at Portland Dental can create a detailed three-dimensional image of each tooth. These images are then used to create a customized treatment plan just for you. We will fabricate a series of clear, customized aligners that fit snugly over your teeth and move them into the desired position in small increments. It is vital to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day to stay on schedule with the treatment plan.
