How Invisalign Works

Invisalign’s discreet design has quickly made it one of the most popular treatment methods in orthodontics. Many of our patients enjoy their results and wonder, “How does Invisalign work?”

Invisalign uses a series of custom-made aligner trays that apply consistent pressure to your teeth over time. Each new set gradually guides your teeth into the proper position. We will bond small, clear attachments to your teeth to help the aligners be as effective as possible.

The aligners trays are removable, so you can eat your favorite foods and brush with ease. It is essential that you wear your aligner trays for 20-22 hours per day to get the most out of your treatment.

Is Invisalign Right for Me?

Invisalign can effectively treat moderate orthodontic conditions, and some complex conditions, including:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Open bites

When you have your consultation, Dr. Ron or Dr. Jesse will examine your teeth using our advanced Itero Element 3D scanning system. If your condition is severe, they will discuss whether Invisalign or braces are best suited to improve your smile.

Invisalign Adult

More adults than ever are investing in the long-term health of their smiles. Invisalign can help you if you have trouble chewing, swallowing, or talking due to your orthodontic condition.

Invisalign can help you look your best and ensure you have a healthy smile for years to come.

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign can help boost your teen’s confidence and provide them with a healthy smile that will last a lifetime. Orthodontic treatment can help if your teen avoids smiling because they feel self-conscious about their teeth.

Invisalign’s SmartTrack® material has been shown to help teens get faster results!

It is important that your teen wears their aligners consistently and keeps track of the trays by placing them in their carrying case. Your teen will need to wear their aligners for 20-22 hours daily to experience results.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

Like any orthodontic treatment, Invisalign is an investment worth making. The cost of your Invisalign treatment will depend on many factors, including:

  • The severity of your condition
  • The duration of your treatment
  • Your compliance with the treatment plan

We will have a much better idea of the potential cost after examining your teeth. That said, Invisalign treatment can range from $2,800-$7,500. This estimate does not factor in the cost of insurance. 

We believe everyone should have access to quality orthodontic treatment, which is why we offer various payment options, including insurance, Flex Plan payment plans, and major credit cards. We also offer discounts for payments made in full. 

We will review your insurance and provide a detailed breakdown of treatment costs during your complimentary consultation.

Caring for Your Invisalign Aligners

Every type of orthodontic appliance increases the risk of collecting food particles and bacteria on your teeth. To prevent tooth decay and gum disease, you should brush your teeth twice per day and floss at least once a day.

You can also use your toothbrush and a fluoride wash to gently clean your Invisalign aligners. Caring for your aligner trays will also prevent you from having to order new ones too soon, which will save you money and keep your treatment on track.
