The Discreet Way to Straighten Your Teeth

If you want to straighten your teeth, but you don’t want to wear metal brackets and wires, there’s good news: you don’t have to! Invisalign is a cutting-edge orthodontic treatment that uses see-through, virtually undetectable clear aligners instead. Although they are aesthetically much more appealing than traditional braces, they don’t compromise on effectiveness. In fact, they are just as reliable, and they can deliver results in just one year (sometimes less!). Want to learn more about this cosmetic dental treatment?

How Invisalign Works

Unlike traditional braces that move your teeth with metal brackets and wires, Invisalign guides your teeth into place with clear aligners. In short, Dr. Damon Anderson will provide you with a series of trays that are custom-made to move your teeth from where they are now to their ideal positions. The key is wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours a day and switching to the next tray in the series on the correct day (which is usually between 7 and 14 days). Every six weeks or so, you’ll return to our office so we can ensure your teeth are tracking properly and give you your next batch of aligners.

Indications for Invisalign

Fortunately, Invisalign is suitable for a wide range of patients, including those who are struggling with crowded teeth, gapped teeth, and uneven bites. If you’d like to learn more about the process of addressing these orthodontic issues, read on:

Crowded Teeth

Overcrowding is an extremely common issue that can negatively impact three aspects of your smile: the way it looks, how healthy it is, and how it functions. Luckily, Dr. Anderson can create custom aligners that will place just enough pressure on your teeth to guide them out of their crooked positions and into their properly aligned ones.

Gaps Between Teeth

If you aren’t happy with your smile because of the spaces between your teeth, then we recommend seeing if you’re a candidate for Invisalign! The clear aligners have helped countless patients with this orthodontic concern have the perfectly straight teeth and beautiful smile they’ve always wanted.

Bite Alignment

Bite issues encompass everything from overbites and underbites to crossbites. The good news is that with a few additional orthodontic accessories, like attachments, Invisalign can correct these issues as well, making your smile look and feel better in the process.

The Benefits of Invisalign

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

Simply put, the cost of Invisalign varies. That’s because there are numerous factors that go into making a treatment plan, starting with the complexity of your case. We also need to determine how many aligners you need, if you need to straighten one or both arches of teeth, and if we need to include additional accessories, like rubber bands, to achieve the desired results. The good news is that there is one thing that’s universal: our team will go above and beyond to make understanding the price easy.
