How Invisalign Works

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to move your teeth into proper alignment. You’ll wear each set for at least 22 hours a day and they’ll shift a small section of your smile at a time until your pearly whites are in the desired position. Most patients are instructed to wear their set for two weeks before advancing to the next one. Throughout your treatment, you’ll visit our office regularly to ensure everything is moving according to plan.  

Indications for Invisalign

Invisalign has become one of the most popular orthodontic solutions because it can address several issues. Some of those include:

Crowded Teeth

Do you feel like you have too many teeth in your mouth? If so, you may have crowding issues. This must be addressed as soon as possible as it can interfere with your cleaning routine and increase your risk of issues like decay and gum disease. With Invisalign, your aligners can shift your teeth into a more ideal position.

Gaps Between Teeth

Having gaps in your teeth doesn’t just feel unappealing – they can make you more susceptible to cavities and infection. That’s because food particles can get stuck in the spaces between your teeth, leading to decay and bad breath. Luckily, Invisalign can push your teeth closer together into a healthier position.

Bite Alignment

Underbites, overbites, crossbites, and open bites are all types of malocclusions. These issues can place unnecessary pressure on your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and potentially cause a TMJ disorder. The good news is that Invisalign can address these problems to make your mouth more comfortable.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

Because Invisalign isn’t a one-size-fits-all treatment, it’s impossible to provide an accurate cost estimate until you come in for a consultation. During your appointment, our team will review your dental history and assess the extent of your dental misalignment before providing a price quote. Rest assured – we’ll also explain your financing options to help you avoid breaking the bank!
