Interested in straightening your teeth? Contrary to popular belief, you do not need metal braces to accomplish this goal! Invisalign clear braces are a tried-and-true, FDA-approved orthodontic system that uses a series of clear, customized aligners to gradually reposition the teeth. By using three-dimensional computer imaging, a patient’s entire treatment plan can be precisely mapped out before it even begins, ensuring success. On this page, you can learn more about Invisalign and how it may benefit you.
We will provide you with a series of custom-made tooth aligners. You will wear each aligner for 20 – 22 hours each day for about two weeks. The aligners will apply gentle pressure to your teeth and move them little by little. After you work your way through all of the aligners, your teeth should be in their correct positions. You will visit out office for periodic checkups throughout your Invisalign journey.
Invisalign is able to address most types of dental misalignment. Whether you want to straighten your teeth for purely cosmetic reasons, or you are aiming to improve your oral health, Invisalign might be ideal for you.
Teeth that are too close together are both unsightly and dangerous to your oral health. Invisalign, along with possible extractions, may be able to alleviate crowding and give you more attractive, more functional teeth.
Large gaps between your teeth may make you feel self-conscious. Invisalign can gradually move your teeth closer together, resulting in a more confident, more comfortable smile.
If you have an overbite, underbite, or other type of malocclusion (bite problem), your teeth are at a higher risk of breakage. Invisalign is often able to shift the teeth in a way that results in a more comfortable, more functional bite.
When you commit to Invisalign, you can expect to receive numerous benefits, including:
When you visit Dr. Graicerstein for your Invisalign consultation, he will evaluate your dental misalignment and map out your treatment plan. Then, our team will be able to give you an accurate estimate for the cost of your treatment. In many cases, dental insurance is willing to cover at least a portion of the cost of Invisalign. We can also help you to apply for low-interest financing through CareCredit if necessary.
