What is Invisalign?
In our office, each clear aligner tray is worn approximately 20-22 hours per day for 2 weeks each* (our standard instructions). Each patient will progress through a certain number of aligner trays until the desired final tooth positions are achieved.

Invisalign was launched in 1999 as a clear alternative to metal braces. Dr. Passamano was one of the early adopters and continues to be one of the most proficient users of Invisalign by having the highest Invisalign doctor level of Elite Provider of Invisalign and Invisalign Teen. This means our competency and complexity of our cases is one of the best in North America. Dr. James believes in Invisalign so much that he did Invisalign treatment on himself.
Together, Drs. James and Robert Passamano and their personal Invisalign certified technician (in Costa Rica), custom-design and manufacture a series of clear aligner trays especially for you. Both Drs. Passamano pride themselves on achieving the same quality of Invisalign orthodontics as regular braces orthodontics. Our goals and outcome of orthodontic treatment is always the same regardless of the methods we choose (Invisalign or Braces).
In 2012, we introduced the new iOC Invisalign Teeth Scanner system as part of our Invisalign process. We offer Invisalign without messy molds or gaggy impressions. This new method of Invisalign allows us to digitize your teeth instantly to achieve more accurate custom Invisalign trays, quicker turnaround times (by 1-2 weeks), no more re-do’s, and an all-around better patient experience!
Drs. Passamano continue to maintain the highest Invisalign doctor-level as Elite Preferred Invisalign and Invisalign Teen Provider. Drs. Passamano are members of the Orange County Advanced Invisalign Study Club, comprised of Orange County’s top Invisalign doctors. In 2013, Drs. Passamano were award the Invisalign Award for clinical efficiency and case complexity. We in the top 1% of all Invisalign doctors in the world.
