You may have seen or heard commercials for Invisalign clear aligners as an alternative to traditional metal braces. But do they work? At Horan & Phillips, we can show you how these amazing—and comfortable—plastic devices absolutely work over time to straighten teeth, address overbite and underbite issues, and much more to give you a smile you can be proud of! Ready to get started? Just get in touch with our team for a consultation. 

What Is Invisalign®, and How Does It Work? 

Invisalign is a combination of technology and physical straightening devices administered by an experienced dental care professional that helps correct many different smile concerns over the course of months.  

As a treatment system, Invisalign is designed to replace traditional metal braces for many people. It works in three distinct phases: 

Smile Design with Your Dentist 

Visit us for a consultation, where you’ll receive a sneak peek at your new smile. Our dentists will make a 3D scan of your teeth and map out your unique treatment plan with Invisalign. 

Fitting & Routine Aligner Wear 

Get your aligners, wear them according to your dentist’s recommendations, and start to see results. You’ll have regular check-ins during treatment to trade out aligners as needed. 

Results & Smile Maintenance 

Invisalign treatment can take as little as 6 months to complete, though you’ll likely see results sooner! After treatment, your dentist will prescribe retainers to keep your smile in shape. 

There are other aligner systems in the marketplace. However, Invisalign® was the original—and we feel it’s still the best—which is why we offer Invisalign® treatment at Horan & Phillips. We invite you to visit Invisalign’s website to get a sense of the range of dental issues these aligners can fix. 

Answers to More Invisalign FAQs

Is Invisalign treatment available for kids? 

Yes, though in many cases, traditional metal braces will still be the best course of treatment. Invisalign is available to correct straightening issues in growing children as young as age 6, like crowding, spacing, and narrow dental arches. However, many considerations inform our recommendations on whether braces or Invisalign treatment are better for kids, tweens, and teens. Our experienced pediatric dentists at Horan & Phillips can help parents weigh their orthodontic options. 

Is Invisalign treatment expensive? 

Invisalign treatment costs about the same as traditional braces. Most dental insurance plans will cover a portion of the cost of treatment, similar to how they reimburse for orthodontics. While Invisalign is an investment, there are many convenient ways to pay for treatment over time. Please call our office at (717) 293-2784 to learn more or book an Invisalign consultation today.

“Absolutely wonderful experience and an even better staff. Warm and friendly, they really listen to their patients’ concerns. I highly recommend this office.”

Brandon E.

“The upfront staff was pleasant and accommodating, the dental hygienist , Heather, was professional, proficient, and very relatable. Dr. Phillips is a kind and gentle type, which is extremely valuable since going to the dentist is not usually a pleasant experience. Never thought I’d rate a dentist with a 5 star, but they have my vote. I went home happy and healthy.”

Melanie M.

“I went to Horan and Phillips on the recommendation of a friend as I was unhappy with my current dentist. I was not disappointed. Very friendly and professional. Probably the least painful extraction I’ve ever had. Dr. Horan was very attentive to my comfort. I will be switching to this practice for all my dental needs and will recommend them to everyone.”

Mark W.

“Broke a tooth and called in for an emergency appointment; happily I got one the same day. Dr. Horan was personable and professional. His assistant was kind, courteous, and efficient. They explained the what and why of the procedure and I was out of there in an hour. Love the greenery in the rooms!!”

Catherine W.

“Outstanding! You will find respect, courtesy, honesty, skill, and a clean environment. You will not find humiliation, pressure, or a lack of compassion. I am happy to have found them. They are the best around.”

Stu B.

“My 3yo son and I have gone to Horan & Phillips twice now and it has been a great experience each time. My son enjoys going to the dentist! Highly recommend.”
