Invisalign® in Omaha, NE
The Most Advanced Clear Aligner System
The Invisalign clear aligner system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign works from the very beginning of your treatment plan to the end using a series of custom-made clear aligners for your teeth. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved.
Invisalign aligners gently shift teeth into alignment through the placement of controlled force on your teeth. This treatment is a proven and efficient orthodontic solution that comes without the restrictions of traditional braces. One of the many reasons this treatment is so popular is that you are in control of your results. The more you wear your aligners, the faster you’ll see results. Learn more about How Invisalign Works.
Dr. Stevens is a board-certified orthodontist who proudly offers Invisalign in Omaha, NE. This treatment is great for both teens and adults. Contact Braces Omaha today to see if clear aligners are right for you or your child.
Common Issues Addressed With Invisalign
Invisalign is effective for treating many orthodontic conditions, such as:
- Gapped teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Open bite
As orthodontic technology advances, the range of conditions that Invisalign can treat is also growing. Over 1,000,000 patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign.
The Invisalign Treatment Process
The first step in the Invisalign treatment process is a consultation at Braces Omaha. We will create your treatment plan during this first appointment using the latest 3D imaging technology to create a detailed digital impression of your teeth and jaws. These images will allow us to create a series of aligners customized to your mouth.
Preparatory Work and First Fitting
To start your treatment, we will perform preparatory work and provide you with your first set of clear aligners. Some patients require small composite patches on each tooth to help the aligners stay on. We may sand away some enamel of teeth that are crowded to create more space and allow for better movement. If you need any preparatory work, we will provide your first aligners on the same day.
We will place the aligners in your mouth and see how they fit. It’s normal for Invisalign to feel strange at first, but you will get used to having them in your mouth the more you wear them. You can expect mild to moderate pressure each time you start a new aligner.
Wearing Your Aligners
You will wear an aligner for about two weeks before you move to the next set. For most adults, orthodontic treatment time is just under one year, using a total of 18–30 aligners. Treatment times vary depending on your unique situation. Once your treatment has started, you will need to visit our practice about every six weeks for checkups.
Cleaning Your Invisalign Braces
Clean your trays thoroughly at morning and night. You can do this at the same time as your regular brushing. Keeping your trays clean helps remove bacteria and keeps them smelling and feeling fresh. Anytime you remove your trays during the day, you should rinse them with water. Ideally, you should clean your aligners after every meal.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign has many great advantages that sets it apart from traditional brackets and wires, including:
- Virtually invisible
- Eat and drink what you want during treatment
- Remove the aligners to brush and floss without having to clean around oral appliances.
- No metal brackets or wires to cause irritation
- Since your appointments don’t involve metal or wire adjustments, checkups are quicker
- View your virtual results before you start so you can see how your teeth will look when treatment is complete
- You may notice results as fast as two weeks

Who Is Invisalign Suitable For?
Invisalign is suitable for almost anyone looking to improve their smile. Clear aligners can correct most orthodontic issues for teens and improve their oral health as their jaw finishes developing. Most teenagers are wearing braces or aligners at this time, so teens who wear Invisalign can straighten their teeth alongside their peers.
A huge benefit is that it is also great for adults. More adults are taking control over their dental health and correcting their smiles with clear aligners. Invisalign gives adults flexibility and results without the look and maintenance of traditional braces. Learn more about Invisalign for teens and for adults.

Frequently Asked Questions: Invisalign
Can Invisalign fix impacted canines?
In some cases, clear aligners can move teeth to make room for an impacted canine to emerge. Most impacted canines will require traditional braces and oral surgery to help the tooth erupt. Learn more about orthodontics for impacted canines.
Do teeth move after Invisalign?
After you stop wearing your aligners, it’s normal for teeth to shift slightly. This is natural, and some people experience noticeable changes while others do not. Retainers hold your teeth in position after orthodontics, especially in the first few months after you finish treatment. Wear your retainer as much as possible during this time and afterwards to keep your teeth from shifting to their old positions.
When do you start seeing results from Invisalign?
You may see results from your clear aligners in as little as two weeks. Some Invisalign patients notice changes after several months. Remember that changes in your teeth happen over time, not right away. The more you wear your aligners, the faster you’ll see results.
Can Invisalign rotate teeth?
Invisalign can rotate crooked teeth up to 20 degrees. If a tooth requires more rotation or tilting, traditional braces are often necessary.
Do you sleep with Invisalign trays in?
You should wear your trays as much as possible—including when you’re sleeping! Aim for 22 hours per day and only remove your trays to eat and brush your teeth. While you’re asleep, your aligners continue working to straighten your teeth.
