Reclaim your smile confidence as low as $99 down!
Remember the days of metal braces with all the food restrictions and the pain of having wires in your mouth? Modern technology in orthodontics has produced an alternative, a new method of straightening teeth. Invisalign uses smooth plastic aligners which are custom made for the individual. These plastic covers go over the teeth and move them a little at a time in accordance to the orthodontist’s specifications. More comfortable than traditional metal braces, clear Invisalign braces are removable so you can maintain good oral hygiene. Also the fact that they are removable means that you are able to eat the foods you love during therapy. You won’t be in the dental office as much either as with metal braces because there are no wires to be adjusted.
One of the really nice advantages to wearing Invisalign braces is that they are virtually invisible. This is especially nice for the younger set who always seem to be so self-conscious. Another perk of this system is having the ability to actually see beforehand what your completed therapy will look like. You do not need to use your imagination to figure out how you will look with straight teeth. You will be able to see for yourself by way of a computer generated image.

A system of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign® is an innovative alternative to traditional metal braces that can address a wide range of dental issues. Crooked, crowded, or gap teeth can make you feel self-conscious. Crowded and misaligned teeth can also cause plaque to form on teeth, leading to gum disease. Even worse, misaligned teeth, an overbite, or an underbite can be the cause of serious conditions like temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, or TMD. While traditional metal braces used to be the only option to straighten teeth, today there is Invisalign®.
By using a series of aligner trays, Invisalign® can gradually shift the position of your teeth into a more aesthetically desirable and better functioning location. Each tray is custom-designed to move your smile a little bit closer to your goal. Invisalign® trays are clear and removable, so you can take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Patients typically wear each aligner for about two weeks and then switch to the next one in the series. Our dentists will follow your progress and adjust the treatment plan as necessary to achieve the optimal outcome.
Timeline on Treatment
The amount of time it will take to complete your treatment will depend on several factors, including the type and severity of the misalignment, how consistently you wear the aligners, and your individual rate of movement. Most patients can achieve their goals in as little as 9-15 months, which is often a shorter period of time than with traditional metal braces. You can help keep treatment time brief by wearing your trays at least 22 hours per day. If you’re not eating, drinking (water), or brushing and flossing, the aligner should be worn. If you notice any damage on the aligner, let us know right away so we can keep your progress on track.

Investing in a Straighter Smile
One of the many benefits of Invisalign® teeth-straightening is that it often costs about the same as traditional metal braces, although with this system you can enjoy more discreet and comfortable treatment. If you’re considering Invisalign®, our dentists will develop a customized program that optimizes your results during your initial consultation. During this evaluation and planning stage, they will review the cost of treatment based on your needs and goals. Since the plan is designed individually, the price will vary from person to person. Some of the factors that go into determining the final cost include the complexity of your case, length of time required to achieve the discussed outcome, and the number of aligners that will need to be used. The average Invisalign® user can expect to spend between $1,800 and $6,500, depending on their unique characteristics. The best way to receive an accurate quote is to schedule an appointment with our dentists, where we will provide a detailed account of what to expect.
Both traditional metal braces and Invisalign® have similar goals: to straighten teeth. The right technique for your needs can vary depending on the complexity of your treatment plan as well as personal preferences. Many patients prefer Invisalign®, as it can provide a more comfortable experience. Invisalign® has no metal or wires to dig into the soft tissues of the mouth, and the trays can be removed for pictures or special events, if desired. The trays are also low maintenance and virtually invisible, while braces require considerable upkeep and can be quite noticeable, even if clear or white ceramic brackets are used. As with all procedures, we will discuss your options during your consultation so you can make the best decision for you.

BENEFITS OF Invisalign (CLEAR ALIGNERS)
Teens love Invisalign Teen aligners. The aligners are so subtle that no one knows you are wearing them so your teeth are slowly moving into place all the while you are interacting with friends. There are no metal parts to be embarrassed or self-conscious about. Teens love eating out with their friends and thanks to Invisalign Teen, they can enjoy all the foods they want with their friends. Popcorn and caramel apples can stay on the list of edibles because the aligners can be taken out. Not only that, but your teen can maintain good oral upkeep with brushing and flossing with removable aligners. This also means less chance for tooth decay or periodontal problems.
