What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a breakthrough technology that straightens teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible, custom-molded aligners. These aligners replace the wires and brackets of the past, making orthodontic care practically unnoticeable to others. And, unlike braces of the past, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth.
Treatment with Invisalign® is quick and easy. With Invisalign®, you don’t wear metal braces. Instead, your teeth are straightened by wearing a series of clear plastic aligners. The aligners are so inconspicuous that most people won’t be able to tell you’re wearing them. You’ll wear each set of clear aligners for about two weeks at a time, while your teeth move little by little toward the smile you’ve always wanted. The aligners are worn all the time, except when you’re eating, drinking anything but water, brushing, and flossing. Because the aligners are removable, you can eat all your favorite foods.
How Does it Work?
We can’t tell you exactly how long your treatment will take. But, on average, Invisalign® treatment takes about one year. During that time, you will change to a new set of aligners every two weeks. Each set of aligners gently moves your teeth one step closer to their optimal position until you develop a beautiful, healthy smile.
The cost of treatment is similar in cost to traditional braces. In addition, if you have orthodontic coverage, Invisalign® is often covered to the same extent as traditional braces. Dr. Alber also offers a variety of affordable payment plans. Our office will be happy to work with you on all of the insurance and financial details.
Invisalign® vs. Traditional Braces
Unlike traditional braces, few people will even know you're wearing Invisalign®. That's because each aligner is nearly invisible. So you can have the confidence you need while looking great at work, at school, and with friends. It's a new type of orthodontics, helping you look good now to look great in the future!
"I don't want metal braces at my age."
