What are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Invisalign clear aligners are an orthodontic treatment designed to align your teeth more comfortably and discreetly. They are an excellent alternative to traditional braces, eliminating the need for metal brackets and wires and working to correct all the same orthodontic issues, including:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped and spaced teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Bad bites (such as overbites, underbites, open bites and crossbites)

The Process of Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign treatment relies on a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. These aligners are specially designed using advanced computer technology, ensuring that they fit your teeth and mouth perfectly. Each set of aligners makes small changes to the positions of your teeth, and as you continue to wear the aligners (switching to a new set of aligners every few weeks as directed by our dentists), your teeth will gradually move into their ideal positions.

Invisalign aligners offer many benefits, including:

  • A nearly invisible treatment that allows you to enjoy the natural beauty of your teeth while also aligning your smile
  • Aligners made of smooth, thin plastic, ensuring your comfort during treatment
  • Removable aligners which allow you to eat, brush and floss normally

We welcome you to call us today to schedule your personal consultation and learn if you are a candidate for Invisalign clear aligners!

FAQ

What Is Invisalign® Treatment?

Invisalign is a clear aligner treatment that can gradually correct misalignment or bite issues in your smile. Using a series of removable aligners made of a thin, clear plastic, this treatment can give you a straighter and healthier smile without the metal brackets or food restrictions can accompany traditional braces.

How Does Invisalign Work?

After your initial consultation with our dentists, our team will use digital impressions of your smile to create a treatment plan that predicts the movement of your teeth over time and helps us design a series of clear aligners that are customized to your needs. When worn correctly, these aligners can help you achieve a beautiful new smile, and our dentists will be with you throughout the treatment to answer any questions you have, monitor your progress, and ensure that each aligner fits you correctly and comfortably.

Why Choose Invisalign?

Invisalign clear aligners are popular amongst teens and professional adults since they are virtually invisible when worn. Since Invisalign aligners are removable, they make eating, drinking, flossing and brushing easier than any other orthodontic treatment, and they can be removed for special occasions. They also save you the hassle of metal brackets or wires that may break or irritate the soft tissue of your mouth.Unlike other clear aligner treatments, Invisalign is made of a patented SmartTrack material, making them fit better for a more comfortable experience.

What Can I Expect From Invisalign Treatment?

Your Invisalign experience will start with a consultation with our team. Since every smile is unique, the effectiveness of different orthodontic treatments will vary from patient to patient. Our dentists can give you a reasonable expectation of what your results will look like, though he cannot guarantee a specific outcome. It is important to discuss your aesthetic and oral health goals with our team in detail so we can give you the most accurate information during your consultation and provide the best advice for treatment.

Is Invisalign Right for Me?

Invisalign is a great option for teens and adults alike, and it is ideal for patients looking for discreet orthodontic care. While clear aligners can be used to address almost all common bite and alignment issues, our dentists can give you more customized treatment recommendations during your consultation.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

The length of your clear aligner treatment will depend on the complexity of your case. Some cases are completed in as little as 6 months. Most patients begin to see results in as little as a few weeks.

Is Invisalign Covered by Insurance?

Most dental insurances have the same coverage for Invisalign as they do for traditional braces. They may cover part of the cost of your treatment or reimburse a set dollar amount. Talk with our team about your insurance coverage to know what to expect.

What Makes Invisalign Different From Generic Clear Aligners?

The Invisalign treatment uses SmartTrack material to make their aligners, making the experience more comfortable and predictable than other aligner systems. They are also the only aligner treatment completed in an official dental office with professional monitoring throughout. Because they are offered only by dental professionals, they can also use tooth-colored attachments to make certain tooth movements faster and more comfortable than aligners alone would.
