If you want to straighten your teeth without affecting your appearance, Invisalign® clear aligners are a discreet and comfortable orthodontic method. Griffin Orthodontics in West Allis, WI, offers Invisalign® for a variety of patients. Dr. David J. Griffin can use the virtually-invisible aligners to address concerns such as an overbite, underbite, gaps, and overcrowding. As a preferred provider, Dr. Griffin is able to provide Invisalign® Teen, as well as Invisalign® Lite, enabling us to customize treatment to fit your needs.
Invisalign® treatment consists of a series of clear, BPA-free plastic aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth. By applying precise and consistent pressure, Invisalign® gently moves your teeth into their appropriate location. Each new set of aligners are engineered to fit snugly and apply the right amount of force needed to achieve the next adjustment of your treatment process.
Invisalign® can treat many of the same conditions as traditional braces, including:
Dr. Griffin prescribes Invisalign® to treat mild to complex cases of misalignment. However, Invisalign® may not be the right treatment plan for your needs. We will conduct a comprehensive examination of your misalignment at our office and recommend the optimal orthodontic treatment for you.
Once it is determined that you qualify for Invisalign®, Dr. Griffin will use the iTero® digital scanning system to create 3D digital images of your teeth. Using this information, he can design a precise treatment plan and map out the exact movements of your smile.
At this point, he can provide you with an estimate of how long your treatment will take. The iTero® scanner also allows you to preview the results of your expected smile. Dr. Griffin will then send your digital impressions to Invisalign®, where your aligners will be fabricated out of their virtually-invisible SmartTrack® material.
By applying precise and consistent pressure, Invisalign® gently moves your teeth into their appropriate location.
During treatment, you will need to wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours every day, removing them only to eat, brush, and floss. About every two weeks, you will exchange your aligners for a new set. You will also need to visit our office about every six weeks, which allows Dr. Griffin to monitor your progress and provide you with additional aligners.
Treatment with Invisalign® is more comfortable and convenient than traditional metal braces. Since the aligners are removable, your orthodontic treatment will not significantly affect your daily life. You can remove Invisalign® before brushing or flossing, making oral health care easier. Additionally, there are no limitations on what foods you can eat during treatment. With Invisalign®, you can continue to enjoy the food you love while straightening your teeth.
If you are looking for a discreet way to straighten your teeth, Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible and fit comfortably into your smile. At Griffin Orthodontics, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the orthodontic treatment best suited to their needs, goals, and budget.

Not surprising that all reviews are 5 star! Dr. Griffin is competent, professional and friendly to all patients. Staff is nothing less than terrific, as well. Adult patients, like me, are welcomed and made to feel part of their family. No exceptions! Very happy I chose Invisalign and delighted I chose Dr. Griffin and his team.
