HOW INVISALIGN WORKS
Your Invisalign treatment consists of a series of custom-made, clear aligners are created specifically for you. These aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces often do. Simply wear them throughout the day, and remove them when you eat or to brush and floss your teeth. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gently and gradually begin to shift into place. Total treatment time averages 6-20 months. And because they’re virtually invisible, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
Approximately every two weeks, you will begin wearing a new set of aligners, advancing you to the next stage of your treatment. During treatment you will visit our La Vista, NE dentist about once every six weeks for a brief progress check and to pick up your new aligners.
ADVANTAGES OVER BRACES
With Invisalign, the aligner trays are not only smooth and comfortable to wear, but they’re also removable. That means you can continue doing all the things you normally would, from brushing and flossing, to eating whatever you like. With traditional braces, brushing and flossing properly can often take up to 30 minutes!
Special occasion coming up? No problem – just take your aligners out for that time and pop them back in when you’re ready. Of course, even when you’re wearing them, most people won’t even know you’re going through treatment, because they are virtually invisible!
Improving your smile is an important investment. Invisalign is comparable in price to traditional braces. Many factors determine the cost of Invisalign including the length of treatment and how extensive the issues are that you want corrected. We offer several different payment options so that you can have a beautiful, straight and healthy smile.
