Invisalign®, Straighten your teeth without braces!

Led by four talented dentists, our friendly and skilled team at Summit Dental Group is excited to take the beauty and health of your smile to new heights from across Boise and throughout our corner of Treasure Valley and southwestern Idaho. We do so with a blend of truly caring care and cutting-edge capabilities. Invisalign® shines as a technologically driven, comfortable, and discreet alternative to conventional fixed orthodontic treatment that uses silver-colored metal braces to correct crowded, crooked, and otherwise misaligned teeth and jaws.

The Invisalign® process

Instead of braces, Invisalign® uses a series of oral appliances to reposition the teeth gradually. These aligners are made from a transparent, flexible, smooth, and BPA-free thermoplastic. They are customized to fit your mouth perfectly. Simply pop them in and out when you eat meals and brush and floss your teeth. Wear and clean them as directed by one of our dentists, Drs. Mooney, Studebaker, Ritchie or Richardson. Compliance is essential to ensure your treatment stays on the right track.

Doctor is Showing Dummy Tooth to Patient

Intrigued? Call us! The process starts with an Invisalign® consultation. We can show you exactly how your teeth will be repositioned throughout treatment. You can even see how your results will look afterward. This is where the “tech” part comes into play. Invisalign® uses special software to render a three-dimensional model of your mouth. This model simulates the straightening process. This precise information is also used to fabricate each of the aligners you will wear throughout treatment.

Each aligner is associated with a different phase of treatment. So, it is also important to wear the aligners in the correct order. Generally, you will wear an aligner for one or two weeks before moving on to the next aligner tray in the series. Visit our office in Boise, Idaho, periodically. We will check that everything is progressing as it should be. Treatment can be completed in six months, depending on the nature and severity of misalignment or bite problems. And patients see a noticeable improvement in the appearance of their teeth just after a few weeks.

Invisalign is a discreet orthodontic treatment using clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Custom-crafted for each patient, the aligners gradually shift teeth into the desired position. They are virtually invisible and comfortable and can be removed for eating and oral hygiene, providing a convenient and aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional braces.


The key benefits of Invisalign include discreet treatment, improved aesthetics, comfort, and convenience, as the aligners are removable for eating and oral care. Invisalign also generally involves fewer visits to your Boise, Idaho, orthodontist and may have a shorter treatment duration.


To clean Invisalign aligners:

  1. Gently brush them with a soft toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste, or use the Invisalign Cleaning Crystals
  2. Rinse with lukewarm water
  3. Avoid hot water to prevent warping
  4. Store them in the provided case when not in use

Regular cleaning and proper storage maintain clarity and hygiene.
