Invisalign is an orthodontic system that helps teens and adults correct alignment issues without the use of traditional metal or ceramic braces. Instead, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear plastic trays or aligners to move teeth into their correct position. The trays are removable, and their clear plastic design means they’re virtually invisible while you’re wearing them.
Today’s Invisalign aligners are more versatile than ever, correcting an array of issues like:
Invisalign offers aligners that are ideal for adults as well as teens whose adult teeth have not finished erupting.
Once Dr. Singh has evaluated your teeth and determined that Invisalign is a good choice for you, your treatment begins with X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth. These provide important information that helps ensure your aligners fit your mouth perfectly.
Your aligners are made at a dental lab that specializes in Invisalign aligner fabrication. At the lab, the impressions are scanned into a computer that uses computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to create a series of virtual models of your teeth that show how your teeth need to move during treatment. Then your aligners are made using those models, so they fit securely and comfortably.
The number of aligners you’ll need depends on the issues that are being corrected, but most people need at least 10-12 sets.
One of the biggest benefits of Invisalign compared to traditional metal and ceramic braces is its invisible design. Since the aligners are clear plastic, they’re almost impossible to detect while they’re being worn so you can feel more confident during your treatment. Other benefits include:
After your aligners are made, you wear each set of aligners for about two weeks then you’ll exchange that set for the next set in the series so your teeth continue to move in the right directions. During treatment, you can expect to visit the office about every six weeks to check on your progress.
At Sunny Smiles Dentistry, we understand that the cost of even the most basic dental care may be prohibitive for some of our patients. However, we believe that no patient should have to forgo dental treatment because cost is a concern. We offer convenient financing vendors and payment options so that even the most advanced dentistry treatments are within the reach of each of our patients. We also make it a point to fully inform patients of the cost of treatment before we begin a procedure, so patients will never suffer "sticker shock" when they receive their bill.
