Invisalign® in Columbia
The clear alternative to traditional braces.
Straighten Your Teeth Without Wires
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 11 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 the Nonrestrictive Method
No stress; no interference with your life.
Instead of goopy impressions, your Columbia orthodontist uses an iTero-Element® scanner…Open a new window to the iTero website… to capture a 3D image of your smile. This helps us create your aligners precisely and plan a successful treatment plan.
Your Invisalign expert can prescribe specific tooth movements in each of your trays. Every one to two weeks, you’ll swap to a new set, and you’ll only need to visit us every 8-12 weeks to get your next set of trays. This also helps us monitor your progress throughout the treatment.
Invisalign trays are removable, unlike traditional braces. Take out the aligners whenever you wish to eat and never have to worry about food getting caught in your braces. You’ll also brush and floss your teeth as usual.
Is Invisalign Worth it?
I've been self-conscious about my smile my entire life, and being an adult now, I was able to actually do something about it. Lucas Orthodontics Group made me feel so welcome and put my nervousness at ease. They even worked with me to better afford the Invisalign, erasing the guilt I felt for spending so much money on myself.

Questions About Invisalign?
- 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.
