Straighten Teeth Without Calling Attention To Them

Very few people have naturally straight teeth, and for years braces where the only option. Not any more. We are proud to introduce Invisalign, a new way to straighten teeth without braces. They are so invisible, youll be the only one who knows.
Invisalign uses a series of nearly undetectable aligners instead of brackets and wires, so its really difficult for people to tell youre wearing them, even up close. It can give you the smile youve always wanted without the braces youve always avoided.
These aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces because there are no metal brackets or wires. This also makes it much easier to floss and brush. With traditional braces, you are limited to eating certain foods that wont damage youre brackets or break your wires. Now, worrying about the food you eat while straightening your teeth is a thing of the past.
Upon an initial examination your orthodontist can decide if Invisalign is right for you. You will be given a treatment plan and impressions will be taken of your teeth. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, a series of customized aligners are produced. You then wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, gradually moving your teeth until youve achieved the intended result straighter teeth.
How long does it take?
The duration of treatment depends on the severity of your case, which determines the number of aligners you need. However, the average is about 12 months, but only your doctor can determine the length of your treatment.
How much does it cost?
As with traditional braces, the cost will be based on the complexity of your case and the length of treatment. Many doctors charge the same for Invisalign as they do for traditional braces. Also, if your dental insurance plan covers traditional braces, it will typically cover Invisalign to the same extent.
The Invisalign system has been clinically researched and tested. Since introduced into the orthodontic practice nationwide, it has been more than proven effective at straightening teeth. Consult with an Invisalign-trained orthodontist today to find out more.
