What is Invisalign®?
The classic image of a mouth-full of metal, uncomfortable braces is a thing of the past! Improvements in technology over the years have made correcting the alignment of your teeth far less painful and much more effective.
One of the most effective options available today is Invisalign®.
Invisalign® is a clear, custom-fitted aligner for your teeth. Once properly fitted, Invisalign works its magic while you go about your daily routine. The aligner slowly moves your teeth into their proper positions, adjusting bite and alignment.
Invisalign® effectively addresses:
- Abnormal spacing
- Overbites (upper teeth overlap lower front teeth)
- Underbites (lower front teeth extend outward farther than the upper front teeth)
- Crossbites (upper teeth and lower teeth don’t meet correctly)
Invisalign® clear retainers are comfortable and removable. There are no restrictions on what you can eat, and you can take them out at any time to eat, brush and floss.
Adults love Invisalign because no one will know they are wearing “braces”! But it can be used for children, too.
When you get Invisalign® aligners, you’ll have regular checkups with us throughout the treatment, which generally lasts nine to fifteen months.
At each visit, we will usually give you a new aligner that meshes with your current stage of teeth shifting. Broken or lost aligners are easily replaced with a visit to the office.
Most major insurance policies include coverage for Invisalign. You can also use CareCredit® for if needed.
