Having crooked teeth can cause people to feel embarrassed but wearing braces to straighten your smile may not seem much better.

Karski & Spokane Orthodontics offers Invisalign®, a popular orthodontic alternative that uses clear aligners to subtly align teeth.

If you're interested in a comfortable, discreet form of orthodontics, book a free Invisalign consultation at our Beaver Falls, PA, office.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign clear braces

The Invisalign orthodontic system uses a series of custom aligners to gradually bring your teeth into alignment. They exert gentle pressure on the teeth without using obvious metal brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners can help you correct a range of orthodontic concerns, including:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overly crowded teeth
  • Rotated teeth

Invisalign treatment can take 6–18 months depending on a patient's degree of dental misalignment. The average treatment time is around 12 months. Throughout the course of your treatment plan, you'll wear your clear aligners for 20–22 hours each day, removing them only to eat and brush.

Our orthodontists will typically schedule you for checkup appointments every 10–12 weeks so they can monitor your progress. Patients can visit our office in Beaver Falls or any of our other five convenient locations in the Pittsburgh, PA, area.

3 Reasons to Choose Invisalign

Traditional braces are a tried-and-true orthodontic treatment, so why give Invisalign aligners a shot? Take a look at the benefits:


Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, flexible plastic. They're custom-made for your smile, ensuring a more comfortable treatment experience. Bulky metal braces can irritate the inside of your mouth, but that's never an issue with Invisalign. These aligners are even safe to wear during contact sports.


Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible against your teeth. It's likely that others won't even know you're wearing them. Whether you're in a business meeting, taking family photos, or out on a date, rest assured that the attention will be on your confident smile rather than your orthodontics.


Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners are completely removable. This means that you can brush and floss like you normally would and eat without any dietary restrictions throughout your treatment. Caring for your aligners is simple, too. Just brush them with a mild cleansing solution, rinse, and put them back in.

My Dentist Offers Invisalign Why Should I Visit an Orthodontist?

It's true that many dentists around Beaver Falls and the entire Pittsburgh, PA, area now offer Invisalign orthodontics in addition to traditional dental services. This may leave you wondering why you should bother visiting an orthodontist for treatment at all. There are important reasons to undergo Invisalign with the help of an orthodontist, especially those like Dr. David C. Spokane and Dr. Melissa R. Karski.

While all orthodontists are dentists, few dentists are orthodontists. To become qualified, a dentist must pursue an additional three years of specialized training in the positioning of the teeth and jaws. This gives them the expertise to provide more precise orthodontic treatment for a greater range of issues.

Additionally, our orthodontists, Dr. Spokane and Dr. Karski, are VIP Diamond Providers of Invisalign. This places them among the top tiers of all Invisalign providers. They have helped hundreds of patients like you achieve excellent results with personalized Invisalign treatment plans.

Aligner Creation

Your 3D models will be used to guide the fabrication of your custom clear aligners at a certified Invisalign laboratory.

Aligner Fitting

We'll receive your aligners from the lab in about two to three weeks. Then you'll return to one of our offices for an aligner fitting appointment. Your orthodontist will ensure they feel comfortable in your mouth before you leave with your first set of trays.

"Highly satisfied with my child's ortho procedure. The entire process has been seamless even with the pandemic. The website and patient portal is user friendly, but should you need to call the office for any reason, a staff member always answers in a friendly manner.  The Ambridge office is stunning, it's like waking into a super hero museum.  Everybody's favorite super hero can be found.  Dr. Spokane has a great chair side manner, upbeat and friendly.  My child was nervous at first but his fear quickly went away with the super comfortable atmosphere.  I recommend Dr. Spokane to all my friends and family."
