Invisalign – Virtually invisible aligners
Invisalign® straightens teeth using a series of clear, virtually invisible aligners
Invisalign utilitzes a series of virtually invisible clear thermoplastic aligners that will gradually and gently move teeth in a desired position. It’s all done without visible wires and brackets. Most people won’t even notice that you’re wearing braces. Invisalign aligners are removable so you can brush and floss and eat as you normally would.
Plan to visit us every 6-8 weeks. Treatment time is anywhere from 6 months to two years.
How does Invisalign Work?
The virtually invisible thermoplastic aligners are custom-made for you, according to your personal treatment plan. They move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor. One set of aligners is used for about two weeks before moving to the next set of custom made aligners following your treatment plan.
When do I need to wear my aligners?
You should wear them for 20-22 hours every day. You should only remove them for eating, brushing and flossing.
Do aligners affect my speech?
They may temporarily affect the speech of some people. During the first two or three days you may have a slight lisp. When you get used to the aligners in your mouth, the lisp should disappear.
How much do they cost?
The price is comparable to the cost of traditional braces.
Does my insurance cover Invisalign?
Dental benefits differ from policy to policy, you should check with your insurance provider. Invisalign should be covered to the same way as conventional braces, if you have any dental coverage.
Does Invisalign really work?
Orthodontists developed Invisalign and it is used in dental practices worldwide. A wide variety of dental challenges of over 1.5 million patients have been treated successfully with Invisalign.
