What is Invisalign®?
Clear, comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth
Invisalign® is an advanced teeth straightening system and orthodontic treatment. It uses clear, comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth gradually. These aligners are virtually invisible and will not detract from your appearance. They are removable for eating, brushing and flossing. Made of heat-activated plastic called SmartTrack®, these aligners offer gentle wear, but strong and lasting teeth alignment.
Who is a Good Candidate for Invisalign® Treatment?
Most teeth that are out of alignment can be corrected with the Invisalign® treatment. This specialized modern orthodontic system is commonly used for individuals with overbite or underbite, open bite or crossbite and gapped or crowded teeth. It is also successful for general straightening of teeth without use of cumbersome metal dental braces. Your dental specialist will examine your mouth to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign®. If your teeth and gums are generally healthy, you will most likely be a suitable candidate.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
At your evaluation appointment for Invisalign® treatment, X-rays and impressions of your teeth will be made by dental experts of Dentistry at Dove Valley in Cave Creek, AZ. They will be used to produce a 3-D image for designing your treatment plan. A set of thin plastic trays that are free of BPA will be customized for you. You will replace your aligner trays with a new set every two weeks, wearing them for about 22 hours daily, except when eating and when brushing and flossing. Your teeth will gradually straighten for a bright, attractive smile. You may need to wear a retainer to ensure that your teeth hold their new, straight positions.
Typical Length of Treatment
The usual time required for successful correction of misaligned teeth is 12 to 18 months, and most patients will require the full 18 months for successful treatment. Every patient has different teeth straightening needs, and some patients may need to wear a retainer longer than others after treatment. This will ensure that teeth retain their corrected positions for the long-term.
What to Expect During Your Treatment
As a dental patient receiving teeth straightening treatment with Invisalign® from experts of Dentistry at Dove Valley in Cave Creek, AZ, you will be able to view the digital images made of your mouth to see how your teeth will gradually move into alignment. If you wear your clear, comfortable aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day as recommended, removing them when eating and for brushing and flossing, you can look forward to highly successful treatment results with straight, attractive teeth.
What Is the Cost of Invisalign® Treatment?
The cost of Invisalign® treatment can vary significantly. It will depend on the severity of teeth misalignment, the total number of aligners needed during treatment and the duration of treatment. Cost estimates can range from about $3,000 to $6,500. Some dental insurance policies cover partial costs for this treatment, and individual patient payment plans may be arranged by the Dentistry at Dove Valley team in Cave Creek, AZ.
