What is Invisalign?

Invisalign allows you to straighten teeth by using a set of trays (called aligners) that are custom-made to fit your mouth. As the teeth move, you graduate to a new set of aligners about every two weeks until your teeth are straight. Invisalign is a wonderful alternative for braces and continues to be a highly requested treatment here at Del Mar Family Dentistry.

Is Invisalign right for you?

We invite you to consult with Drs to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. Dale Trudeau or Thomas Fitzpatrick. Our team is here to evaluate your smile and decide if Invisalign would make an excellent treatment for your unique needs. Most patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth and bite will find Invisalign a reliable and easy way to achieve the desired results!

What are the pros and cons of Invisalign clear braces?


  • Aligners are nearly invisible.
  • Aligners are comfortable.
  • Removable.
  • Eat whatever you like.

Possible drawbacks:

  • Must be worn regularly for results.
  • Aligners must be taken out for eating.

How long does Invisalign take?

Typically, most Invisalign cases take about 6-12 months to straighten teeth.

How much does Invisalign cost?

Invisalign can run between $5000 and $7000. This is usually much less than that of orthodontic braces.
