There are a lot of options to straighten your teeth. Invisalign® is a great solution for adults and teens looking for a way to improve their smile without brackets or metal wires. Invisalign® treatment uses the most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Teeth move by wearing a series of clear aligners to gradually straighten them by applying a constant gentle force. The aligners are custom-fitted clear trays that are virtually invisible, making the treatment seamlessly fit into your lifestyle.
With Invisalign, teeth move 50% faster than other aligners on the market due to its patented innovative material. Your orthodontist or dentist creates a custom digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements to straighten your smile. All you have to do is wear your aligners as your doctor prescribes. Prior to starting Invisalign® treatment, begin with a full check-up and periodontal exam to make sure your gums and teeth are healthy for orthodontic treatment.
Patients always tell me the end result was worth it. Your doctor determines the cost of your treatment based on how complex your case is and how many aligners you need. Because every patient’s smile is different and requires a different amount of treatment, the cost of Invisalign® varies per person with payment plans starting as low as $50/month. The results are priceless!
With digital technology, you get a virtual before-and-after image of your smile that allows you to see the change before you begin. The iTero Element scanner provides a digital model of your teeth that eliminates dreaded dental impression for the fabrication of the aligners. The iTero Element scanner is only available with Invisalign.
After completing Invisalign® treatment, most patients use a retainer to prevent teeth from becoming crooked again. As with all orthodontics, the use of a retainer is the key for you to keep the new smile you love straight!
Invisalign® is the most researched, tested, trusted, and proven aligner system in the world. With 20 years of research, over 900 patents, the world’s largest 3-D printing operation, and nearly 6 million smiles treated, you can trust Invisalign® clear aligners to give you the perfect smile you always wanted.
