Invisalign® in Columbia
The clear alternative to traditional braces.
Metal braces are uncomfortable and inconvenient, even clear braces too. But they’re no longer the only options for straightening your teeth.
Now, you can achieve a healthier, straighter smile without brackets, wires, and constant adjustments! Our Columbia orthodontists offer Invisalign. It’s the world’s top clear aligner system, treating more than 10 million smiles!
Invisalign trays are made of smooth SmartTrack material…Open a new window to learn more about SmartTrack…, which makes them virtually invisible and easy to remove. Throughout your treatment plan, you can eat and drink whatever you’d like.
Plus, Invisalign technology creates a very predictable outcome. Every set of your custom aligners will gradually move your teeth to the predetermined position by one of our Columbia Invisalign providers. You’ll even get to preview your finished smile before you start treatment!

Invisalign is clinically proven to work and is extremely effective.
Our Columbia orthodontists use 3D computer software to provide a better aligner fit and more successful results.
Check-ups with Invisalign are less frequent than braces. In some cases, Invisalign treatment may even be faster altogether!
Your plan is designed to treat your smile’s unique condition and meet your end goal.
- What can I expect with Invisalign treatment?:
It’s a simple 3-step process:
Your doctor will meet with you to discuss your needs and smile goals. They’ll evaluate your mouth to determine if you’re a candidate for Invisalign.
Take an Image:
We’ll capture a 3D image of your smile with our iTero-Element® scanner. Next, we’ll send it to the Invisalign laboratory, which will create your trays.
Once the aligners are ready, we’ll have you try them on so we can make sure they fit properly. And finally, you’ll leave with your aligners! Wear your trays for at least 20 hours a day and switch to a new set every one to two weeks. Maintain regular check-ups and a proper oral health routine. Our doctors will ensure you’re satisfied with your results before completing treatment.
