About Invisalign® Clear Braces
Invisalign® Treatment is a proven technology designed to give you the smile you’ve always wanted, without the pain and anxiety associated with metal braces.
INVISIBLE, COMFORTABLE AND REMOVABLE
To help you get a more beautiful smile, Invisalign® Treatment uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move your teeth. You wear a set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each set of aligners with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move until they reach the position the doctor has prescribed for you.
LESS TREATMENT TIME
An average Invisalign® Treatment course takes about 11 months. At regular intervals, you’ll receive a new set of custom-molded clear aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you, determined by the doctor for your course of treatment.
CLEAR AND COMFORTABLE
Since Invisalign® Treatment is practically invisible, there’s no unwarranted attention to your mouth. In fact, very few people will notice at all – unless you tell them. They’re comfortable to wear and removed easily when you eat, brush and floss.
Invisalign® Treatment Reviews
"If you are thinking of getting Invisalign, DO IT with Saratoga Springs Family Dentistry! I just finished the process and I can't stop showing off my new and improved smile! Chanel, the Clinical Care Manager, goes above and beyond. She walked me through everything from start to finish. From the initial consult to taking the 3D images (so cool!) to scheduling appointments, checking in to see how the process is going, explaining next steps, ordering trays, and so forth-she does it all! Chanel is incredibly personable, knowledgable, and organized throughout the process, she couldn't have made it any easier. Dr. Dodd and his team were amazing as well. Dr. Dodd took his time to explain everything and answer questions that I had. He makes you feel comfortable and the visits needed during the process were very quick. I can't say enough great things! Thank you Dr. Dodd, Chanel, and team for such a positive experience. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Definitely deserving of a 5 star review!!"- M.G. / Google / Aug 02, 2022

Invisalign treatment FAQs
Are Invisalign aligners covered by insurance?
Most major dental insurance providers do not offer coverage for Invisalign treatment, but it depends on your unique coverage and plan. Saratoga Springs Family Dentistry can review your insurance benefits to determine what is covered. We also provide information about payment options to help you find the best path forward.
Do I need to wear a retainer after treatment?
The short answer is yes. It's normal for your teeth to shift immediately after Invisalign treatments, and it’s important to prevent these problems from reversing your results. Retainers provide stability and make sure your investment lasts. We'll show you how to wear and care for your retainer so you can keep your beautiful smile long-term.
How do I clean my clear aligners?
It's important to clean your Invisalign aligners every day, but it's easy! Just brush them with regular toothpaste and water. Be sure to rinse them well and air dry. Store them in the case provided — so they don't get dirty or damaged. If you have any other questions about care, our dental team in Saratoga Springs, NY, can provide helpful answers.
MADE TO FIT YOUR LIFESTYLE, NOT CHANGE IT!
Because Invisalign® Treatment uses clear plastic aligners to position and straighten teeth, you can keep your active lifestyle during treatment. Unlike braces, Invisalign® aligners have no metal bands or wires to irritate your mouth. So go ahead and be as active as you like. Since Invisalign® clear braces are removable, just take the clear aligners out for special events or if you’re going to indulge in a sticky, gooey snack.
LOOK YOUR BEST DURING AND AFTER TREATMENT
Of course, you want to look great, at work, at school, with friends. Maybe you speak to groups or conduct meetings. You still can!

And when your course of treatment has ended, you can feel confident, whether in front of people or not. You’re going to have a stunning smile. All across the country, people like you now have great smiles and straighter teeth, thanks to Invisalign® clear braces. Why not join them?
