Invisalign is an attractive alternative to traditional metal braces. It involves a series of clear, custom-fit removable trays that apply a controlled force to teeth to slowly move them into a straight position. The system provides the same beautiful results as traditional braces but with two main advantages: 1) They are nearly invisible for favorable esthetics and 2) The trays are removable, allowing more comfortable eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
The Invisalign system begins in our office with digital impressions of your teeth. We’re able to show you a digital workup of your case from start to finish before you accept treatment. Once in treatment, patients will switch trays every two weeks to gradually move their teeth. A visit to our office is required every six weeks to closely monitor tracking and progress. Once treatment is finished, a patient will be given a set of retainers to maintain their new smile for a lifetime.
The cost of Invisalign varies according to the complexity of the case. Insurance policies generally cover Invisalign to the same extent that they cover traditional braces.
