Invisalign is an innovative system that allows you to straighten your teeth using a set of custom aligners instead of braces. These aligners are removable, invisible, and very comfortable. Invisalign offers you predictable and accurate results in record time.
You will have a digital scan of your teeth taken during your first appointment. These digital images are used to create a 3D render of your teeth. Your doctor will then manipulate the render to map out each movement of your teeth. These movements then become an aligner that applies gentle pressure to your teeth during 1-2 weeks you wear each aligner.
Re-designing a smile is a delicate operation that requires experience, a trained eye, and a high level of training. Invisalign is backed by millions of happy patients worldwide that successfully enhanced their smiles using this treatment. Invisalign will offer you predictable and efficient results using its patented technology, software, and Smartrack material.
We will share the total cost of your treatment at your initial consultation because it will depend on a variety of factors including your diagnosis, the length of your treatment, and your treatment goals. But don’t worry, we will work with you to design a payment plan that fits within your budget using a variety of options including maximizing your orthodontic insurance coverage, offering you the current discounts available, and offering any external and internal financing options available.
The answer to this question will vary depending on the details of your diagnosis, the length of your treatment, your treatment plan, and your orthodontic insurance coverage. During your initial consultation, we can discuss the specific cost of your treatment options, what Invisalign can do for you, and the payment options that can work with your budget.
During your initial consultation, the doctor will review the details of your treatment plan with you, including the length of your treatment. This treatment plan is designed by your doctor to meet your unique needs and no two treatment plans are the same. The length of your treatment will depend on a variety of factors including the amount of correction you require, your diagnosis, your age, your level of oral health, and your commitment to follow your doctor’s instructions.
Your doctor will provide you with detailed instructions that are specific to you and your custom treatment plan. However, in general terms, we recommend that you wear your aligners as much as possible. Only take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
Most healthy individuals with a variety of orthodontic issues are eligible for Invisalign. During your initial consultation, your doctor will perform a comprehensive exam and will determine if Invisalign is recommended for your unique situation.
The answer is Yes! One of the biggest advantages of choosing Invisalign is that you can continue to enjoy all of your favorite foods and drinks, just remember to remove your aligners before eating or drinking. We encourage you to keep a healthy diet and indulge moderately.
You can use your toothbrush and toothpaste to gently brush the inside and outside of your aligners until they are clean. You can also soak your aligners in a denture cleaner. Please remember to avoid exposing your aligners to any heat including the dishwasher, boiling water, etc.
Good news! Invisalign does not require any adjustment appointments, you will only need to come in for progress checks. The frequency of your progress-check appointments will depend on the details of your treatment plan but are typically advised every 6-8 weeks.
Congratulations! You now have the smile you have always dreamed of and your teeth are healthier than ever. However, you are not quite done. After the treatment phase, you go into the retention phase which serves to hold your teeth in their new position long enough for the gums to harden around the teeth. We will offer you a variety of retainers including removable, fixed, visible, and aesthetic options.
