Dr. Nicholas Rafaill is a Certified Preferred Provider of Invisalign in Shelby Township!
Invisalign treatment involves the use of clear, invisible aligner trays that you wear on your teeth to straighten your teeth. There are a number of different trays that are slightly different from each other, made from Dr. Rafaill’s prescription, that gradually straighten your teeth. Each set of aligners are worn for a two-week interval before being swapped out for the next in the series. You’ll need to wear your Invisalign aligners 22 hours out of a 24-hour day to get the very best results possible.
Because of Dr. Rafaill’s thorough, long-term, and exclusive experience with Invisalign treatment, nearly all patients are a candidate—even if there are malocclusion issues. If you are committed to wearing your aligners for the prescribed amount of time each day, Invisalign could be a great option!
Why choose Invisalign for yourself or your teen?
- They are invisible, so you can feel free to smile with confidence while you’re still in treatment.
- There are no diet restrictions, just take your aligners out when you eat and drink.
- Brushing and flossing your teeth is much easier than trying to manipulate around braces that are glued onto your teeth!
- Usually, the length of treatment is shorter than traditional braces! On average, treatment takes less than 12 months!
- Invisalign for teens includes built-in indicators in each aligner that monitor your teen’s compliance.
- If your teen misplaces any aligners, Invisalign will provide up to six replacement aligners at no additional fee.
We understand that schedules are so hectic nowadays, which makes Invisalign treatment even more convenient. You’ll only need to visit our Shelby Township orthodontic office once every six to eight weeks when you start treatment so Dr. Rafaill can monitor your progress and give you new aligner trays. After that, you can go even longer between appointments!

Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted — without braces. A consultation with our doctor can determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.
What is it?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to administer Invisalign treatment.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time in your doctor's office getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You'll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
