Happy & Healthy Beyond Just Straight Teeth: Our New Invisalign® System

Posted .

In the quest for a perfect smile, traditional braces have long been the go-to solution. However, modern advancements in orthodontics have brought about innovative alternatives like Invisalign® treatment, offering a discreet, comfortable and highly effective way to achieve straight teeth. Our new Invisalign system goes beyond merely aligning your teeth; it promotes overall dental health and boosts confidence, ensuring you feel happy and healthy inside and out.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign® is an advanced orthodontic solution that straightens your teeth using a series of personalized, transparent aligners. The process involves:

  1. Consultation and Customization: Your journey begins with a comprehensive consultation with our orthodontic providers. We use advanced 3D imaging technology to create a precise digital model of your teeth. This allows us to design a personalized treatment plan, mapping out the exact movements your teeth will make over time.
  2. Creating the Aligners: Based on the digital model, a series of clear, BPA-free plastic aligners are fabricated. Each set of aligners is designed to be worn for about one to two weeks, gradually shifting your teeth before you move on to the next set.
  3. Wearing the Aligners: The aligners are practically invisible and fit snugly over your teeth. They are easily removed so you can eat, drink, brush and floss with ease, making them a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles. For the best results, you should wear the aligners for 20-22 hours a day.
  4. Monitoring Progress: Regular check-ups with our orthodontic provider are scheduled to monitor your progress and ensure everything is on track. Adjustments can be made to your treatment plan if necessary.
  5. Completion and Retention: Once your treatment is complete, you’ll receive retainers to maintain your newly aligned teeth and prevent any potential relapse.

What the Cost of Invisalign Treatment Depends On

The cost of Invisalign treatment can vary based on several factors:

  1. The complexity of the Case: The severity of your dental issues significantly impacts the cost. More complex cases requiring extensive movement of teeth will typically be more expensive.
  2. Duration of Treatment: The length of time you need to wear the aligners affects the overall cost. Longer treatment plans generally cost more due to additional aligners and extended monitoring.
  3. Orthodontic Provider Expertise: Experienced and highly specialized orthodontists may charge higher fees for their expertise and the quality of care provided.
  4. Geographical Location: The cost of living and demand for orthodontic services in your area can also influence the price of Invisalign treatment.

Is Invisalign Right for Your Smile?

Determining whether Invisalign is the right choice for your smile involves considering several factors:

  1. Types of Dental Problems: Invisalign can address various dental concerns such as crowding, spacing, overbites, underbites and crossbites. Nonetheless, more severe or complicated cases might necessitate traditional braces or alternative orthodontic treatments.
  2. Age: Invisalign is suitable for both teens and adults. For younger patients, compliance is crucial as the aligners must be worn consistently to achieve the desired results.
  3. Lifestyle: If you lead a busy lifestyle and prefer a discreet orthodontic option, Invisalign is an excellent choice. The removable aligners allow you to maintain your usual oral hygiene routine and partake of your favorite foods without restrictions.
  4. Commitment: Success with Invisalign requires a commitment to wearing the aligners as directed. If you’re diligent and follow our orthodontic provider’s instructions, you can expect fantastic results.
