We are a Certified Invisalign® Provider
Since 2012, we are pleased to have earned the distinction of being a “Premier Preferred Provider.” This means that Drs. Koufos and Albright have treated more than 600 patients using Invisalign.
Orthodontic Specialists is proud to be considered a leading Invisalign provider in NW Indiana! Our experience has shown that many professional adult and teen patients have met the criteria and enjoy using the Invisalign product. Patients especially love our iTero digital scanner to make upper and lower impressions, without the mess, to assist in creating their custom aligner trays.
In order to keep current with the latest in clear aligner technology, Dr. Koufos has traveled to Costa Rica to meet directly with the technicians at the Invisalign production facility. He has also attended the Invisalign Summit Conferences over the past six years. Dr. Koufos is impressed with their innovation and use of technology to make continuous improvements in the strength of their product.

Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful, straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with us can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
What is it?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. The aligners are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
No metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign 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, and remove 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 your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts nine to 15 months, and the number of aligners is between 18 and 30, but both numbers will vary from case to case.
