Invisalign®

Our office provides the most state-of-the-art procedures available, ensuring optimal results for our patients. Invisalign® aligners are a revolutionary system that utilizes 3-D computer graphics to design and manufacture customized clear appliances called removable "Aligners". Invisalign appliances are virtually undetectable, easy-to-use and comfortable to wear. Invisalign effectively treats the vast majority of adults and adolescents with narrow arches, crowding, space closure, relapse, and anterior intrusion.

The invisible way to straighten your teeth, without braces. Invisalign can give you the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted. It works through a series of invisible, comfortable and removable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing. So you can smile more during treatment as well as after.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How much does Invisalign cost?
A: As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign depends on the complexity of a patient's case. The Invisalign cost is generally slightly more expensive than traditional braces, but find out what your treatment involves by contacting our office for a complimentary appointment. We also do not let finances stand in the way of getting a beautiful smile. We offer a number of payment plans that make any treatment fit our patient's budget.

Q: Does Invisalign really work?
A: Yes. In both clinical research and in orthodontic and dental practices nationwide, Invisalign has been proven effective at straightening teeth.

Q: Does insurance cover Invisalign?
A: Many insurance companies cover Invisalign to the same extent as traditional braces. However, orthodontic benefits do differ significantly from policy to policy. We recommend verifying your individual benefit with your insurance company.

Q: What are aligners made of?
A: Removable Aligners are made of clear, strong medical grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn.

Q: What do aligners look like?
A: Removable Aligners are nearly invisible and look similar to clear tooth-whitening trays, but are custom-made for a better fit to move teeth. Some orthodontists and dentists have referred to them as "contact lenses for teeth."

Q: How does Invisalign effectively move teeth?
A: Like brackets and archwires, Invisalign Aligners move teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on the teeth. The principal difference is that Invisalign not only controls forces, but also controls the timing of the force application. At each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, and these movements are determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system.

Q: What is the minimum age of a patient that a doctor can treat with Invisalign?
A: Doctors can use Invisalign to treat a vast majority of patients with fully-erupted molars.
