Invisalign® is an attractive alternative to traditional metal braces. It is a series of clear, custom-fit removable mouth trays that apply a controlled amount of force to your teeth, slowly straightening them. The system provides the same beautiful results as traditional braces, but is virtually invisible. Because Invisalign® trays are removable, they can be taken out while eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
Invisalign® treatment begins in our office by taking molds of your teeth to design your custom Invisalign® trays. You will switch trays every two weeks to slowly shift your teeth. The system requires a visit to our office every six weeks so the treatment can be monitored. Once treatment is complete, you will likely be given a retainer to maintain your new, straight smile.
The cost of Invisalign® varies according to the complexity of the case. However, Invisalign® is generally more expensive than traditional braces. Insurance policies generally cover Invisalign® to the same extent that they cover traditional braces.
