Invisalign® in Fresno & Clovis, CA
Straighten Teeth With Clear Aligners—No Brackets Necessary!
Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional braces. Using a series of clear aligners that are virtually invisible, Invisalign straightens your teeth and improves your bite without the restrictions that traditional braces can carry. Since they are removable, Invisalign allows you the freedom to eat the foods you love and brush and floss normally, and the aligners are free of wires or brackets that can cause irritation in the mouth.
Technology continues to advance, which is why Nalchajian Orthodontics continues to implement the most sophisticated technology available today to ensure all of our patients achieve outstanding results. We put forth extra effort to make sure you are comfortable, welcomed, and taken care of every time you step into one of our offices.
Dr. Greg Nalchajian and Dr. Nicole Nalchajian are the leading experts in orthodontic care utilizing Invisalign and teeth alignment services. We offer this service to patients in both our Fresno and Clovis, CA, offices. Contact us to schedule an appointment, and we will create a custom treatment plan to personalize a smile that you or your child can be proud of!
What to Expect With Invisalign Treatment
A comprehensive exam is the first step in any treatment process. You or your child will meet with one of our experienced orthodontists, who will discuss all of your treatment options, including Invisalign. We will map your entire treatment plan virtually during this appointment by utilizing the latest 3D imaging technology to create a digital impression of your teeth and jaws. This technique allows us to create the customized series of aligners you will be wearing throughout your treatment.
In general, each set of clear aligners is worn for 1 week at a time and is only removed to eat, drink, brush, or floss. This usually means that the aligners must be worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day. A new set of clear aligners will be worn for the following two weeks, and so on, until you have achieved your ideal smile.
Most patients complete their treatment after a total of 18–30 sets of aligners over the course of 9–15 months; however, since each Invisalign treatment is customized for every patient, you may find that your specific treatment may vary from these averages. You will need to visit our office approximately every 12 weeks to ensure treatment is progressing as expected, which is less often than you would need to visit for traditional braces.
How Does Invisalign Move Teeth?
Invisalign clear aligners work by using advanced align technology to gradually shift teeth. Every aligner is custom-made to fit your smile, and each aligner in your series is slightly different than the one before it. The changes in your aligners exert pressure onto your teeth in order to fit the new aligner shape. Over time, this moves the teeth into their proper positions.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is a popular treatment option because of its clear, invisible nature. In addition to not being as noticeable as traditional metal braces, Invisalign offers many other benefits:
- They're customized to fit your mouth, making them comfortable.
- They can be removed for eating and brushing, making oral hygiene easy.
- They have smooth edges instead of poking brackets or wires.
- You don't need as many appointments for adjustments as traditional braces.
- You know exactly what to expect out of your treatment and how long it will take.
- Having a straight smile will boost your confidence.
What Conditions Can Invisalign Treat?
Invisalign can treat a broad scope of orthodontic conditions, and many patients who are candidates for traditional braces are happy to find out they are also Invisalign candidates. Invisalign commonly treats orthodontic conditions such as
- Gapped teeth
- Overly crowded teeth
- Open bite
As orthodontic technology continues to advance, the range of problems that Invisalign can treat is also growing. When it comes to the alignment and health of your teeth, the specialists at Nalchajian Orthodontics are experts you can trust.
Cost of Invisalign in Fresno and Clovis, CA
The cost of Invisalign is similar to the cost of braces. If your dental or medical insurance covers a portion of braces treatment, you likely have this same coverage for Invisalign.

During your first visit with us, we will outline the cost of your or your child’s treatment so you know exactly what to expect.

Reviews From Our Invisalign Patients
Kimi Reviews Her Invisalign Procedure
"I came into Nalchajian Orthodontics because I noticed there was a gap in between my teeth and as a performer, I get very self-conscious about my smile on stage, so I wanted to come into Nalchajian to get braces. The treatment went really well. It’s just so great to see the progress of my smile and to be complimented on my smile—it’s just so amazing. The team is so nice. They always make me feel so good about myself from the front desk all the way to the back, they always have a smile on their face. It’s so nice to see the photos of my smile and just to track my progress. It just feels amazing to be confident about myself and my appearance. I would definitely recommend Nalchajian Orthodontics to any one of my friends because it’s just an amazing environment."
Steve Reviews His Invisalign Procedure
"I have two younger boys that had a large gap in between their teeth and first phase, we started out with braces and had a wonderful experience, and Dr. Nicole reminded me that Invisalign was not only for the children but as well as for the parents. After nine months, I feel wonderful and my teeth look great. Overall, my experience has been tremendous. The consistency and level of service that we’ve received over the past seven years is second-to-none. I think Dr. Nicole is wonderful. She always greets you with a smile, and she’s very encouraging. Her services are very much welcomed in this community, and I’m very thankful to have found her and to not only call her my doctor but also a friend. I would give Dr. Nicole five stars."
Chad Reviews His Invisalign Procedure
"My experience has been very good here at the orthodontics practice. The girls at the front are very friendly, so as much as we don’t want to go to the dentist and doctor, they make it as easy and friendly as possible to come here. I first met Dr. Greg, and I like things explained to me, and he takes the time to explain the treatment plan and what’s going to happen, and it makes me feel more comfortable going down that road with Invisalign. Every week, you put in a new aligner, and every week, it gets tighter and tighter, and it straightens out. They’re clear, so people can’t really tell you have them in, and they’re comfortable. I’d be more than happy to refer a friend or client to Nalchajian Orthodontics."
Barry Reviews His Invisalign Procedure
"Hi, I'm Barry, I'm from Clovis, and I had Invisalign done at Nalchajian Orthodontics. It is an incredible environment. The staff is always extremely pleasant. Dr. Greg and the staff here are absolutely wonderful—makes you feel like you're part of the family. My teeth are better, and basically the quality of my life is better as well. The experience at Nalchajian Orthodontics has simply been incredible. For all my friends and family in Easton, Auberry, and Bonadelle Ranchos, I highly recommend Nalchajian Orthodontics."
Ashley Reviews Her Invisalign Procedure
"I'm Ashley and I'm from Fresno, and I have had Invisalign for the last two years. Everything here is efficient, and you get checked in easily, and it is such a pleasant environment. The staff here is a pleasure to be around and really just make you feel right at home. Dr. Nicole is incredible. She is on her game and she knows what she's doing, so I knew I was in good hands. My procedure has been so much easier than I thought. I really just have to say it's been a very pleasant experience. We've gotten great results and it's just been pretty remarkable. I'm glad I just got ahead of it, got it fixed, and now can enjoy straight teeth for the rest of my life. I would highly recommend Nalchajian Orthodontics."
Frequently Asked Questions: Invisalign
Do teeth move back after Invisalign?
It's normal for teeth to shift slightly after you have completed your Invisalign treatment. Teeth are more likely to shift in the first few months after you stop wearing aligners. Wearing a retainer as much as possible during this time and afterwards will keep your teeth in their new positions.
When will I see results from Invisalign?
Treatment times will vary. Some patients see results after just two weeks, while others notice changes after several months. Your teeth will change over time, not right away, so be patient with your aligners. The more you wear your aligners, the faster you will see results.
Can Invisalign fix crooked teeth?
Invisalign aligners can sometimes fix crooked teeth. If a tooth requires more rotation or tilting than 20 degrees, braces are often necessary to correct it.
Should I sleep with Invisalign trays in?
You should wear Invisalign all day and night and only take out your trays to eat or brush your teeth. Your aligners work around the clock to straighten your teeth—including while you sleep!
