Invisalign - The Clear Alternative to Braces

Developed with orthodontists, Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution, so you can smile both during treatment and after. In fact, almost no one will know you are wearing them unless you tell. By using a series of clear, removable aligners that are changed about every two weeks, Invisalign gradually moves your teeth toward the smile you've always wanted.

Clear, Removable, Comfortable

Invisalign is comfortable to wear and easy to live with. You visit your doctor every month or two to check your progression and get new aligners. Average treatment time is about a year. Because the aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favourite foods. And you can brush and floss normally to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Treatment Options

Not only is Invisalign versatile, helping to correct a broad range of dental and orthodontic issues, but it really works. An experience Invisalign doctor can work with you to correct:

  • Crowding (not enough room for the teeth)
  • Spacing (spaces between the teeth)
  • Overbite (Protruding upper teeth)
  • Underbite (Protruding lower teeth)
  • Deep Bite (Upper front teeth hide lower)
  • Open Bite (Back teeth are together but space is present between the front teeth)

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Does Invisalign really work?
A. Yes. Developed with orthodontists and used in dental practices worldwide, Invisalign has been effective at straightening teeth. Over one million patients with a wide range of dental challenges have been treated with Invisalign worldwide.

Q. How does Invisalign work?
A. Invisalign uses 3-D computer imaging technology to map the complete treatment from start to finish. From this plan, a series of custom-made aligners unique to your treatment is produced. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, and is then replaced by the next aligner. Gradually, the teeth move toward their final position.

Q. How much does Invisalign cost?
A. Fortunately, the Invisalign system is often similar in price to traditional braces. Because treatment costs vary from patient to patient based on factors that include the complexity of your case, the cost of your treatment will be determined during your initial consultation with a trained Invisalign provider.

If your family's dental insurance includes orthodontic treatment, Invisalign may be covered. Talk to your insurance provider to determine the extent of coverage for your treatment.

Ask your doctor about affordable financing options that may be available to fit any budget. In addition, you may choose to use your Flexible Spending Account, if your employer provides it.
