What Is Invisalign?

An Innovative Solution

Invisalign is a discreet orthodontic solution designed to address all types of misalignment, gapped teeth, and more. The treatment system uses a series of custom-made clear aligners to straighten your smile gradually over time. Each aligner is worn for one or two weeks, before being swapped out with a new set of aligners. Thanks to its many advantages, such as its cosmetic appeal, comfortability, and effectiveness, Invisalign has become one of the most popular options in dentistry.

Did You Know? A Straighter Smile Has Many Health Benefits

Invisalign aligners are well-known for providing outstanding cosmetic upgrades. But they can also provide important health benefits:

Prevent Wear

Misaligned teeth can grind against each other when you chew, causing teeth to become worn. The results of Invisalign can prevent dental wear.

Better Hygiene

When teeth are crowded, it can be difficult to brush and floss them properly. Straight, evenly spaced teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of decay or gum disease.

Fewer Headaches & More Sleep

Straighter teeth can align your jaw properly, reducing joint aches and headaches. An aligned jaw can also reduce sleep apnea symptoms.

Invisalign Timeline

Patients who go through Invisalign treatment at our dental practice usually achieve their final results in 12 to 18 months. How long your treatment will take will depend on the severity of your dental misalignment. A typical Invisalign experience proceeds according to the following timeline:

If you are interested in orthodontics, schedule a free consultation with Designing Smiles in Hackensack, NJ. During your consultation, Dr. Mamah will examine your bite to determine your candidacy for Invisalign. If you qualify, she can discuss details like cost and how long your orthodontic treatment will take.


If you and Dr. Mamah agree to proceed with Invisalign, we will use our advanced iTero technology to create a digital model of your bite. Dr. Mamah will use this model to design your personalized treatment plan.


Dr. Mamah will send her design for your series of clear aligners to a certified Invisalign lab. The lab will create your aligners so that they will fit precisely over your teeth at every stage of treatment. This fabrication process usually takes a few weeks, and then the aligners can be mailed directly to you or to our offices in Hackensack, NJ. 

Wearing Your Aligners

For the best results, it is very important that you wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. You should only remove the aligners to eat, drink anything besides water, brush, or floss. You will switch from one set of clear aligners to the next about every two weeks.


During your treatment, you will periodically return to our office in Hackensack, NJ, so we can monitor your progress. These check-ups typically occur every six weeks.  

Final Results

If you follow all orthodontic guidelines and commit to wearing your aligners for the proper amount of time, you should experience a completely straightened smile in 18 months or less. However, we will recommend you wear a retainer at night after treatment to keep your teeth from shifting out of alignment over time.

Is Invisalign Right

for Everyone?

Request a Consultation to See if You're a Candidate

If your misalignment is substantial, Dr. Mamah may suggest traditional braces to correct your smile. You might also like the fact braces don't require you to avoid damaging or misplacing an appliance. There are many factors to consider when deciding what orthodontic option is right for you.

Schedule a consultation at our Elm Ave. or Main St. offices in Hackensack to find out which option will work best to achieve your smile goals:

Invisalign FAQs

Is Invisalign treatment painful?

As your teeth gradually shift, you may feel some minor discomfort similar to a toothache. This isn't cause for concern, as it means your treatment is working. Over-the-counter pain medication can help you handle this side effect. Keep in mind that according to a study, Invisalign patients reported lower pain levels in the first few days of treatment than patients with a fixed appliance, like braces.

Is Invisalign treatment faster than braces?

Sometimes. The timeline for your orthodontic treatment will vary based on how severe your misalignment concerns are and other unique factors contributing to your smile alignment. Treatment times may look similar for braces and Invisalign, but treatment may feel shorter with Invisalign because you have the freedom to remove them for 2-4 hours a day. For patients with more minor alignment issues who want a quick solution, we offer Six Month Smiles®, an aligner-and-clear-braces system. 

Are Invisalign aligners just the same thing as retainers?

No, retainers are used to keep your newly improved smile held in place. Invisalign aligners are used to shift your teeth into this correct position by gently guiding your teeth and jaw. While retainers are exact molds of your teeth, Invisalign aligners aren't a perfect mold of your current teeth, as they're designed to gently apply pressure to move certain teeth.
