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.

Reviews From Our Invisalign Patients
"I started my smile journey about three and a half years ago. I had a very large overbite. I had crooked teeth on the top and bottom, some missing teeth. I had a lot of work to do, so I just went step by step through that process. I thought, well it was probably the nicest thing I could do for myself. When I first walked through the door, I felt extremely welcomed and always greeted with a smile. They just made me feel like they were going to take really good care of me, and they did. I knew from the very beginning that I was in good hands with Dr. Nicole. I'm extremely happy with the progress and the outcome of my treatment plan. I used to cover my mouth when I laughed, and now I find myself laughing out loud all the time. I smile a lot, I greet everybody, I hold my head up more, so the change in my confidence and the level of my self esteem is a direct effect of what I have been able to achieve here at Nalchajian Orthodontics and with this team. I would give Nalchajian Orthodontics five stars."
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."
Tamara Reviews Her Invisalign Procedure
"Our family heard about Nalchajian Orthodontics through some good friends. From the moment you step in at the front desk, the ladies are so welcoming, so professional. They make you feel like you’re the only patient that they have. Having put three children through braces and Invisalign—I actually had Invisalign and braces myself—and I continue to spread the word of Nalchajian Orthodontics to all my friends because of just the great experience that we had as a family here. It’s wonderful to come to a place where you have confidence in the staff and in your doctors. If you are searching for great orthodontic care, I want to encourage you to call up Nalchajian Orthodontics. They have their Fresno and Clovis office, and I promise you: you’re going to be excited about the orthodontic care that you and your family will get."
"Prior to my treatment, I was just a little frustrated with how my teeth were getting so crammed. As soon as my dentist recommended Nalchajian, I came in here. I was immediately comforted. I knew I was in the right place. I just knew these people were going to be perfect for me. When I first walked through the door, I felt super welcomed. The team here is so compassionate. They're always concerned with what's going on, how your treatment's been going, and if you've had any troubles. Dr. Greg—you can tell he really knows what he's doing, and he's really experienced. He's been doing it for a long time. I always feel confident when I bring both of my sons in here. Dr. Nicole and Dr. Greg like to explain everything to you. They show you what's going on. They're always very informative but very welcoming. They want the whole family involved. They want you to be very clear on what's going on, what needs to be done, what's coming up, things like that. The treatment here was so easy. I had no idea how easy the Invisaligns were. Everyone was just going crazy over my teeth, so it was really exciting, and I get a lot of compliments still. If anyone is looking for an awesome orthodontist, I highly recommend Nalchajian Orthodontics."
Andrew Reviews His Invisalign Procedure
"When I first walked through the door, it felt really inviting. The front desk—they were great people, really polite, so I felt welcome. Dr. Nicole made me feel great. She would always ask how my day was, and it was a really nice experience. Dr. Greg was great. You could really tell that he cares. Me having straight teeth will definitely help my confidence. It’ll help me smile more. It’ll help me be more outgoing with my friends. It’s really a great thing to have. I would give Nalchajian five stars, for sure. They were really great with everything, every single aspect of it. For any of my friends or family that need Invisalign, I would definitely 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!
