Invisalign® Clear Aligners in Birmingham, MI
A Discreet, Convenient Alternative to Braces
For many years, metal braces have been the most common and reliable treatment for misaligned teeth. However, many patients try to avoid braces due to their noticeable appearance and the many hassles that come with wearing them. If you’re one of these patients, our Saad dental team is happy to offer Invisalign clear aligners as a less-invasive alternative.
Invisalign aligners are clear and removable, allowing you to eat without restrictions and smile with confidence. Best of all, Invisalign treatment works up to two times faster than traditional braces.
Invisalign vs. Braces
Invisalign provides several unique benefits that metal braces can’t match, including:
- Discreet — The clear aligners are nearly invisible.
- Removable — You can take your aligners out before eating meals or playing sports, allowing you to live without restraint.
- Fast — Invisalign aligners can straighten your teeth in just 12 months, up to two times faster than metal braces.
- Comfortable — Each set of aligners is customized to fit your teeth perfectly, and you won’t have to worry about painful bracket adjustments or metal wires poking your gums.
The Invisalign Treatment Process
The first step of the Invisalign process is visiting our practice for a consultation. During this visit, one of our dentists will examine your teeth and determine if Invisalign will be an effective treatment for you. We’ll also make a 3D digital impression of your smile and send this data to a laboratory, where it’ll be used to craft your customized aligners.
After you receive your first set of aligners, you’ll switch them out for new trays roughly every two weeks. Each set is designed to only influence certain teeth, gently shifting them into proper position until your desired results are achieved. In most cases, we’ll be able to complete your Invisalign treatment in just 12 to 15 months.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Invisalign hurt?
Since the aligners are customized to fit your teeth, Invisalign is much more comfortable than traditional braces. You also won’t have to worry about painful bracket adjustments, or metal wires poking your teeth and gums. You may experience some mild discomfort when you first start treatment, but this should fade within a few days.
Is Invisalign covered by insurance?
With most insurance providers, you’ll get the same coverage for Invisalign that you would for braces. Typically, this means at least a portion of your treatment will be covered, depending on the terms of your plan. If you have any questions about your insurance benefits, our team will be happy to assist you.
How do I clean and maintain my aligners?
Invisalign aligners are much easier to keep clean than metal braces. All you need to do is brush your aligners every morning when you wake up and every night before you go to bed. It’s also crucial that you remember to take out your aligners before meals and brush your teeth before putting them back in. This will prevent food crumbs and bacteria from getting trapped in your teeth and causing an infection.
Can I remove my braces and get Invisalign?
In most cases, yes! Many patients who are tired of the hassles that come with metal braces ask if they can switch to Invisalign. The only way to find out is by scheduling a consultation at our Birmingham, MI practice. During this visit, one of our dentists will examine your teeth and determine if Invisalign will be an effective treatment for you.
