Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable transparent aligners. It has been proven effective in both clinical research and in practices nationwide. So whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing braces, you'll have a new reason to smile. Upon your initial exam the doctor will create a treatment plan for you. In using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology you will be able to see the step by step headway as well as the final result, before you even start wearing your aligners. Because there are no metal wires and brackets, Invisalign is comfortable. And because it is removable, eating, brushing and flossing is no problem. You can still enjoy your favorite foods and smile with out holding back.
Q: How does Invisalign work?
A: Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign translates your doctor's instructions into a series of nearly undetectable aligners. You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, moving your teeth gradually week by week, millimeter by millimeter until you've achieved the desired result.
Q: Is Invisalign effective?
A: Invisalign is very effective for a wide range of people whose teeth are crowded or have spaces between them, as well as for those whose teeth may have shifted after having worn braces in their youth.
Q: How often will I have to wear my aligners?
A: Invisalign only works while you are wearing the aligners. It's recommended that you wear your aligners full-time, day and night, except to eat, brush and floss your teeth or as directed by your doctor.
Q: How long does Invisalign take?
A: The duration of treatment depends on the severity of your case, which determines the number of aligners you need. During you initial visit the Doctor can determine the length of your treatment, which in most cases is between 9 to 15 months. Invisalign takes about half the time of traditional braces.
Q: How much does Invisalign cost?
A: As with traditional braces, the cost will be based on the complexity of your case and the length of treatment. However, if your dental insurance plan covers traditional braces, it will typically cover Invisalign to the same extent.
Q: How do I get started?
A: Getting started with treatment couldn't be easier. In fact, you can be on your way to straighter teeth and a beautiful smile within weeks of visiting your orthodontist or dentist
