Dr. Steve West, an Invisalign® dentist in Daly City, often recommends an Invisalign® procedure rather than traditional braces. Invisalign® is the breakthrough technology that lets you have the smile you've always wanted without the hassle of braces. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign® straightens your teeth with results you'll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step-by-step, until you have a more beautiful smile. Unlike conventional braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual. An average Invisalign® course of treatment takes about a year.

Invisalign Teen® is the only clear orthodontic aligner therapy designed to address the unique concerns of treating non-adult comprehensive patients. Because aligners are removable, patients can continue to eat their favorite foods and brush and floss normally to help keep teeth and gums healthy.
Invisalign Teen® has all the features of Invisalign® Full, plus:
- Compliance indicators track the patient's approximate wear time and help provide reassurance for parents that the teen is being compliant.
- Six free individual replacement aligners are included with Invisalign Teen® to replace lost or broken aligners.
