Invisalign®: An Alternative To Metal Braces
Our Tulsa, OK Invisalign® Treatment
Having straight teeth is important not only for children, but for adults as well. As we grow older, our teeth tend to grow inward, creating crowding – a common problem for many teens and adults. As a result, it may be difficult to keep teeth clean and healthy. Straightening your teeth with the Invisalign® system can treat the crowding and thereby help you maintain your dental health. It can also help you get the smile you’ve always wanted!
Invisalign® treatment is a technique that straightens your teeth without braces, using a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-modeled to fit your teeth. The virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a smile you’ll be proud of.
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign® clear aligners are used to correct a multitude of dental problems such as widely gapped teeth, overcrowding, or some combination of both in an unnoticeable way.
Invisalign® is made to fit your lifestyle
- Clear, virtually invisible aligners

Not all teens and adults are candidates for the Invisalign® aligner system. Please contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Robert J. Herman to see if the Invisalign® system is right for you.
How Long Do I Have To Wear Invisalign®?
Around every week, you will be given a new set of clear aligners that must be worn for 22 hours a day. This will ensure the fastest and best results possible throughout the Invisalign® treatment process. We also suggest scheduling a follow-up appointment with Dr. Robert Herman every 12 weeks to see how your teeth are progressing.
The treatment may vary from patient to patient; however, we typically see that on average, it would take approximately 9 to 15 months. If you combine your Invisalign® treatment with AcceleDent, it may be possible to reduce this time by 50%. Once the treatment is complete, you will need retainers to maintain your new beautiful and perfect smile.
