What is Invisalign?
Invisalign® has changed the face of orthodontics. Instead of wires attached to your teeth, Dr. Naz can now straighten your teeth invisibly.
Invisalign® is clear.You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. Invisalign® is removable.Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene. Invisalign® is comfortable. There are no metal brackets or wires as with braces to cause mouth irritation, and no metal or wires means you spend less time in the doctor’s chair getting adjustments.
The Invisalign® process has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthdontic practices nationwide. However, only certified dentist like Dr. Naz can undertake this procedure.
How does Invisalign work?
- A set of aligners are worn for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
- As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position the dentist has prescribed.
- You will visit Dr. Naz approximately once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
- Total treatment time averages 11 months with the average number of aligners worn during treatment between 18 and 30. This of course will vary from case to case.
The aligners are made through a combination of our doctors’ expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology provided by the Invisalign® company.
Designed for Teens

Give your Teens the Gift of a Healthy Smile
Invisalign Teen™ offers the same effective technology that the standard Invisalign system does, straightening teeth with a series of virtually invisible aligners — with additional features that compensate for Teen treatment challenges.
Key among those features is the Compliance Indicator, which monitors wear time, eruption control, and root torque. If you’re not familiar with any of these terms, Dr. Naz will be happy to talk to you about them and their importance for teen orthodontic treatment.
