Clearly Different

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that is quickly becoming the go-to option for individuals looking to straighten their teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign uses custom-made, clear aligners that are made from a medical-grade thermoplastic material that is strong, comfortable, and nearly invisible. This makes Invisalign a more convenient and less noticeable option for those who want to improve their smile without the bother of metal braces. At Mountain View Orthodontics, we use our Itero 3-D scanner to take quick and accurate images of your teeth.

What Types of Dental Issues Can Invisalign Correct?

Invisalign is a modern and innovative orthodontic treatment that can help correct common dental issues, such as crowding, spacing, overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite. Crowding is a common problem that Invisalign can easily address. Invisalign can move teeth that are crowded or overlap each other into a more natural alignment. In addition, Invisalign can also be used to close gaps between teeth, improving the uniformity of your smile. If you have an overbite, Invisalign can help adjust the way your upper and lower jaws are positioned, reducing the appearance of the overbite. Invisalign can also be used to address underbites, by adjusting the lower jaw position. Additionally, Invisalign can help correct a misaligned bite, in which the upper and lower teeth do not come together properly. Finally, Invisalign can help adjust the positioning of the upper and lower teeth to create an even bite for those with an open bite. Not all orthodontic issues can be treated with Invisalign, so be sure to schedule an appointment to see if they are right for you!

What’s Involved with Wearing Them?

Are you looking for a discreet and comfortable way to straighten your teeth? Invisalign aligners could be the perfect solution for you. Invisalign aligners fit snugly over your teeth, making them barely noticeable. Plus, you won’t have to worry about food getting stuck in your braces like with traditional metal braces. The aligners should be worn for 20-22 hours a day for optimal results, but they can be easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Every two weeks you will need to wear a new set of aligners, however, they can be taken out for special occasions like weddings or job interviews.

How Much Do Invisalign Aligners Cost?

The cost of Invisalign treatment can vary depending on the complexity and length of the treatment plan. Generally, Invisalign aligners are more expensive than traditional braces, although this can vary according to individual needs. Your dentist will be able to provide an estimate of the cost of treatment after evaluating your individual needs. Insurance plans often cover some of the cost of Invisalign treatment, and our Care Credit offers flexible payment plans with as little as 0% interest over 24 months.

How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?

Invisalign treatment typically takes between 6 to 18 months to complete, although the severity of the misalignment can affect treatment time. Generally, the average length of treatment with Invisalign is 12 months, however shorter times are possible due to the efficiency and effectiveness of the treatment. During Invisalign treatment, progress is monitored via regular check-ups with your dentist or orthodontist to ensure that the treatment is working as planned.
