Looking for a solution that will quickly fix your crooked teeth? Maybe you’ve been putting off treatment because you don’t want to deal with the inconvenience of spending years in metal braces.
Invisalign clear braces are an orthodontic treatment that is appropriate for older teens and adults. Invisalign is a popular alternative, because the aligners work quickly and are easy to wear. The clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible and much gentler on your mouth than metal braces.
Another important advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners are completely removable, so you don’t have to give up your favorite foods during treatment. Since you can remove the aligners, effective oral hygiene is easy.
How Invisalign Works
Your Invisalign clear braces are created using state-of-the-art 3-D computer imaging technology. This allows you to see how your smile will be transformed when your treatment is finished.
Once we plan your treatment, you will receive a set of custom aligners. You'll wear each for about two weeks and then move to the next set in the series. As you go through treatment, you’ll actually be able to see your teeth move into their correct position.
We’ll make appointments to see you once every six weeks so we can check on your progress. Treatment with Invisalign usually takes about a year for adults, and treatment time for teens is about the same as with traditional braces.
With Invisalign, you can actually see and feel the progress as your teeth gradually move into correct alignment. When you first start wearing your new aligners, you’ll notice that they are snug and don’t seem to quite fit your teeth perfectly. This is how Invisalign works – each set of aligners is designed to gently move your teeth into proper position as treatment progresses.
Convenient, Personalized Care
Our goal is to provide you with personalized care that takes your oral health, lifestyle, and budget into account. We encourage you to be a part of the process because we want you to be in control of decisions about your treatment. Our dental team will take all the time you need to talk to you about your goals so that you’re thrilled with the results.
A wide number of dental insurance plans cover the cost of Invisalign treatment just as they would other orthodontic treatments. However, dental coverage can be complicated, and we’ll be happy to take the time to guide you through the process.
We want you to know exactly what costs you’re responsible for so that there are no surprises after treatment. We participate with almost all insurance providers, and if you don’t have insurance, we also offer CareCredit interest-free financing.
Our accommodating hours make it easy to schedule appointments that fit your family’s busy schedule. Our North Center dental office is open every Saturday so you don’t have to take time out of the school or work week to receive the best dental care.
