Invisalign Aligners in Rochester, MN

What is Invisalign®? Invisalign® is the invisible way to straighten teeth without braces. Invisalign® uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without the hassle of metal wires or brackets. Invisalign® has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic and dental practices worldwide. How does it work? Clear aligners are worn for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As each aligner is replaced with the next in the series, the teeth move little by little until they have straightened to their final position. Checkups with your dentist are necessary Read More →
