Since Invisalign was introduced, over 250,000 people have been treated successfully with Invisalign. The Invisalign removable braces system uses a series of clear aligners to gently and slowly move your teeth to the desired positions.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign works like traditional metal dental braces. The series of custom-made Invisalign aligners presses directly on the teeth to exert slow pressure and gradually move the teeth into place.
How is Invisalign different than wire braces?
The big difference is the clear factor -- Invisalign braces are transparent and virtually invisible to the naked eye. Invisalign can be used for virtually any type of malocclusion with positive results.
Here are the advantages of Invisalign braces over traditional wire braces?
1. Chair time is greatly reduced. You'll see Dr Chaiken every four - six weeks when he will check your progress and deliver your next aligners and monitor your progress.
2. Oral hygiene is improved. Unlike traditional braces, you can remove your Invisalign aligners when you eat, drink, brush and floss. That means your teeth are less likely to trap food and act as a catch-all for dental plaque.
How can I afford Invisalign at North Dental Professionals?
If you have dental insurance, we will contact your provider to find out if your plan covers Invisalign braces. Many plans do offer coverage for teens and adults. Your dental insurance may pay a portion of your Invisalign treatment.
If you do not have dental insurance, we have a variety of payment options including CareCredit which allows patients to make monthly payments.
