If you are eager into straightening your teeth and making your smile shine but are too put off by the sight of braces, we also offer Invisalign. This orthodontic alternative is a series of clear and nearly invisible plastic aligners that are also removable.
How Does Invisalign work?
An Invisalign-certified dentist or orthodontist constructs an Invisalign treatment plan using the patient’s orthodontist records and impressions. All materials are then sent to Align Technology to construct the invisible aligners.
Align constructs a computer duplicate of patients’ teeth from the impressions. With state of the art 3-D imaging software, Align produces a visual representation of the treatment plan that comes to life like an animated movie displaying your teeth’s journey to a straight and radiant smile!
After reviewing the Align’s treatment plan, the orthodontist then approves the rendering of the treatment . Align will then create a series of clear and plastic aligners that match the motion of teeth in the 3-D movie.
With a new set of aligners every two weeks, Invisalign straightens patients’ teeth millimeter by millimeter each week without having the bulky appearance of braces.
Revolutionary Way To Straighten Teeth
Doctors within the industry have been successfully utilizing removable braces like Invisalign for years, but only to a limited number of people. With the expansion and rising customization of 3-D computer technology, Invisalign makes this clear alternative treatment available to virtually anyone interested in a straight smile.
Benefits of Invisalign
- Nearly Invisible: Straighten your teeth without the bulkiness of braces
- Removable: Eat and Drink whatever you want with no worries of food getting stuck
- Better Oral Hygiene: Easily brush and floss normally for healthy teeth and gums
- Comfortable: Wireless, allowing for less mouth abrasion
Who benefits from Invisalign?
With our professional doctors with years working in the industry, we are able to treat a bulk of the people pursuing a straighter smile. The only requirement for a patient to be given Invisalign treatment is they must still have their second molars. Many American adults have some sort of crooked tooth and would benefit from seeing an orthodontist.
How long is the treatment?
Treatment with Invisalign, like braces, relies heavily on the intricacy of each case, but treatment is usually also estimated to take about a year.
Can any dentist provide Invisalign?
All doctors are required to complete a certification seminar through Invisalign in order to provide Invisalign services to their patients. It is estimated that more than 70 percent of orthodontists in North America have become certified and Align is currently certifying general dentists while also offering doctors the opportunity to continue education through advanced Invisalign training.
How much is Invisalign?
Invisalign is priced by the dentist office, not by Align. There are several elements that go into the cost of treatment, such as current market price in an area or the complexity of the patient’s teeth. After completing a survey of certified doctors across the country, Align determined the average cost for Invisalign ranged from about $3500 to $5500.
Does insurance cover Invisalign?
Most insurance policies that offer coverage on conventional braces, also general cover Invisalign. Furthermore, a majority of the doctors also offer to finance through companies like CareCredit as well as in-Office financing.
With more than 230,000 patients that have entered treatment, Invisalign is rapidly increasing as the go-to solution for crooked teeth. Invisalign has FDA clearance as a Class I device and is becoming the norm amongst orthodontist and the treatment of malocclusion. More details are available at www.invisalign.com.
