Straighten Your Teeth with Clear Aligners
Invisalign is a great way to get your teeth straight without the appearance of metal braces. The treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after.
What are the steps in Invisalign?
Your initial complimentary consultation will begin by taking the time to listen to what your goals for Invisalign treatment are. From there, a thorough visual exam will be performed to determine you are a candidate for Invisalign treatment. If you are a suitable candidate, a Treatment Plan will be mapped out with your goals in mind. Then, impressions and pictures of your teeth will be taken for digitization purposes.
The impressions of your teeth are then sent to Invisalign and digitally scanned into the computer. This digital scan is then sent to Dentistry at East Piedmont, where we customize a Treatment Plan to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome.
Once the Treatment Plan has been sent, custom aligners are created by CAD/CAM technology. These aligners are changed out about every two weeks. The average treatment time for Invisalign is 18 months, and most people won’t even notice you are wearing Invisalign trays!
With the exception of eating, drinking, and brushing, you should wear your aligners at all times. Completing your treatment in the timeline determined by you and your doctor is dependent on this. You will go in for occasional checkups to monitor your progress and receive your next set of aligners. During the entire treatment process, you’ll be able to watch your teeth gradually moving into place. Your smile will, little by little, move into something you’d like to show off.
What does Invisalign Cost?
The cost for Invisalign ranges from $5500 to $6000. Financing is available through CareCredit. The consultation to see if you are a candidate for Invisalign treatment is complementary.
