Invisalign is a new, state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment. Clear aligners are used to straighten teeth and correct other common orthodontic issues. Dr. Perry commonly utilizes Invisalign to treat crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, and gaps in the teeth. With two decades of continuous innovation, and more than 8 million treatments performed successfully worldwide, Invisalign is known as the most popular way to improve your smile.


Why select Invisalign invisible braces? Straightening teeth and improving your smile should not be an awkward experience. It should also never be inconvenient or painful. Invisalign accomplishes that. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign’s clear aligners are virtually invisible. As a result, they are more comfortable compared to the metal brackets and wires of regular braces. They also require fewer dentist visits. Furthermore, the aligners are removable. This allows patients to eat or play sports without/kids-braces/ restrictions commonly experienced with metal braces.

We also serve patients living in the surrounding communities of Bellport, Sayville, Holtville, Ronkonkoma, Medford, and Moriches.

As with all cosmetic dentistry, patient results will vary.* However, each patient seen achieves a smile transformation with the revolutionary orthodontic treatment.

How do the Invisalign Invisible Aligners Work?

The Invisalign invisible aligners involve two steps. First, you have your consultation with Dr. Perry, a certified Top 1% Diamond Invisalign Orthodontist. During this consultation, your dentist takes a precise 3D digital scan of your teeth using an iTero Element® scanner. After this, the dentist uses the sophisticated ClinCheck software perfect for customizing a plan that shapes your new smile, specific to your needs and aesthetic goals.

Once your plan is in place, the custom clear aligners are constructed at Invisalign’s 3D printing facility. At your first fitting, your dentist checks the aligners to ensure they are precise and comfortable.

Next, you wear the aligners daily to transform your teeth. The invisible retainers should be worn for 20 to 22 hours each day. You can remove the aligners when you eat or brush your teeth. After 1 to 2 weeks, you switch the aligners for a new pair, as directed by the dentist.

Each aligner set is slightly different from the previous pair. Each provides a custom fit to move your teeth into place gently. You visit your dentist for an in-person checkup at regularly prescribed intervals to assess your progress and receive the next batch of aligners.

Once you complete your teeth straightening plan, you can wear a retainer. This retainer preserves your newly positioned teeth to ensure your picture-perfect smile lasts.

Invisible Braces Applications

Invisalign corrects issues from crooked teeth to more complex orthodontic issues. These include:

In addition, Invisalign corrects or straightens both baby teeth and adult teeth. This is why invisible braces are great solutions for kids, teens, and adults.

What are Clear Invisalign Aligners Made of?

Invisalign’s braces are constructed of a thin, clear, flexible plastic called SmartTrack® (a patented thermoplastic material created specifically for this treatment). This aligner has FDA approval and contains no BPA, BPS, gluten, or latex. 

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

At Harbor Family Orthodontics, Invisalign costs exactly the same as traditional braces. We want our patients to make the best choice for them. However, there are additional ways to save on the cost of clear aligners. This includes dental insurance, paying with pre-tax dollars from your Health Savings Account (HAS,) and Invisalign specials. When you come in for a free consultation with Harbor Family Orthodontics, Invisalign prices are discussed in detail. In addition, we offer in-office payment plans with 0% interest to ensure our patients can receive affordable Invisalign treatment.

When Will I See the Results with Invisalign Treatment?

Invisalign straightens crooked teeth just as efficiently and sometimes faster than metal braces. Most Invisalign patients see noticeable improvements in their smiles within weeks of starting the treatment.* Treatment length depends on unique factors specific to the patient. These include the case complexity and patient adherence to the treatment plan. Some people enjoy complete treatments in as little as 6 months. However, the average Invisalign treatment timeline is between 12 and 18 months.*
As with any cosmetic dental treatment, experiences will vary.*

Frequently Asked Invisalign Questions.

Most dental insurance will cover Invisalign, at least in part.  Invisalign is considered an orthodontic device just like metal braces. Before your free consultation, we will contact your insurance provider to understand what your Insurance will cover.

Invisalign cost really depends on a case by case basis.  We recommend visiting Harbor Family Orthodontics for a free consultation to get a better understanding.  We do NOT charge more for Invisalign vs. traditional braces because we want all our patients to get the best treatment for them, without price as a factor.  We also offer 0% financing.

Rinsing your aligners right after you take them off is the best way to clean your aligners while avoiding bacterial accumulation. You can also brush the aligners to give them a more thorough clean. Some people also use  cleaning crystals which remove plaque in minutes.  To learn more about cleaning crystals check out our blog.  

  • After a free consultation at the Harbor Family Orthodontics which includes an evaluation of your bite using state-of-the-art 3D digital imaging system, you’ll receive a step-by-step projection of your smile progression before you get started!
  • Next, your custom fitted Invisalign aligners are made in the Invisalign laboratory. When your aligners are ready, they are double checked to make sure the fit is secure and you are comfortable. 
  • You will wear the aligners for 20-22 hours each day and will change to a new set of aligners every one to two weeks.

Invisalign attachments, also known as Invisalign SmartForce attachments, are tiny pieces of dental bonding material which apply additional force to help focus the patient’s treatment plan while better controlling teeth movement. The attachments are nearly invisible. Feel free to learn more about attachments on our blog.

When your treatment is complete you are given an Invisalign Vivera retainer, which is also clear. As with the aligners, you’ll wear the retainer nearly full time at first but will gradually taper your retainer wear time. Eventually, you’ll wear the retainer only while sleeping.

It can vary from one patient to another, based on the complexity of the case and your specific bite problems. The average wear time is around 12-18 month.

You should always remove Invisalign when you eat and drink as food and liquid can stain or damage your aligners while chewing.
