Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten teeth, using a series of clear, removable aligners, without the need for traditional style braces that reveal unsightly metal wires everytime you smile.
Each set of aligners are worn for two weeks, and are fully removable to allow for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. As we replace each set of aligners with the next in the series, your teeth will move a little, week by week, until they have straightened into their final position, as predetermined by your dental practitioner.
During the initial consultation, your dental practitioner will discuss the issues you have with your teeth and explore what kind of results you're hoping to achieve. If Invisalign is suitable for you, a treatment plan will be mapped out with your goals in mind. Your dental practitioner will take digital impressions of your teeth using an intraoral scanner and will send this electronically to the Invisalign laboratories for processing.
This will enable Invisalign to produce a Clincheck which will show you your result for the planned treatment.
Signs of periodontal disease, such as swollen gums and redness, can surface due to teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced. Clinical studies have shown that when teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit tighter around the teeth, which can lead to better gum health.
One of Invisalign's best qualities is that it uses no metal bands, brackets, or wires that may trap food and plaque like traditional braces. The removable nature of Invisalign allows you to maintain good oral hygiene, reducing the chances of plaque build-up, tooth decay, and gum disease.
When you leave incorrectly positioned teeth and jaws untreated, it can lead to speech difficulties and uncomfortable chewing issues. Invisalign treatment can improve both of these problems by better aligning teeth and jaws.
Misaligned teeth and jaws can result in abnormal stress. This can cause painful trauma to supporting bone and jaw joints, as well as abnormal wear on your teeth. Invisalign treatment can improve the alignment of your teeth for more natural and comfortable jaw movements.
Improving your smile is a personal investment, of which the benefits are many. A confident, radiant smile is within your reach.
We understand price is an important consideration. Unfortunately, no definitive cost can be determined until you visit us for an initial consultation.
The cost of Invisalign is dependent on the specifics of your individual needs. These factors can include the complexity of your case and how long your treatment will take, but it is generally comparable to the cost of traditional fixed braces.
