Why Choose Invisalign®

There are so many great benefits to Invisalign! Many patients find that the greatest advantage of this orthodontic option is that the aligners are clear, which means you can keep smiling with confidence throughout your entire treatment process. Many people won’t even be able to tell you’re wearing them!

Another benefit is that the trays are removable, so you can brush and clean both them and your teeth easily, you can still enjoy all your favorite foods, and you can take them out for special occasions. Better still for your busy schedule, you’ll only have to come in every six to eight weeks for a check-in.

Invisalign® FAQ

What can Invisalign fix?

Invisalign is used to correct crowding, spacing, and misalignment. Misalignment includes overbites, open bites, and cross bites. During an Invisalign consultation, we’ll go over how the treatment can benefit you specifically.

What are the aligners made out of?

Invisalign aligners are made from medical-grade, biocompatible, BPA-free plastic. This plastic is smooth on your cheeks and gums.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

While treatment time varies depending on the severity of each unique case, we can say that it’s often significantly less than how long traditional braces might take. With braces, many patients end up having to wear them for a few years, while average Invisalign treatment times are between just 6 months to a couple years.

How much does Invisalign cost?

Like with other treatments that we offer, we can’t determine a good estimate until we go over your specific case and come up with an individualized treatment plan. The complexity of the work needing to be done and how long treatment will take are both factors in the cost. When you come in for an Invisalign consultation, we’re happy to go over financial details with you in more detail.

How do I take care of my Invisalign trays?

Since Invisalign trays are completely removable, you can just pop them out when you’re flossing and brushing your teeth. Before you put them back in, just brush them inside and out, rinse with water, and put them back on! They fit right into your daily routine.

Dear Patient,
We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and we are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

As you may have noticed during your visits to our office, infection control has always been a top priority. Our infection control processes are designed so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We would like to take a moment to tell you about the infection control procedures we employ to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows the infection control recommendations put forth by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We monitor all updates to stay abreast of new rulings or guidelines that are issued. This ensures our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations. Due to these updated guidelines you will see our staff wearing extra protective equipment including gowns and gloves. The ADA has advised all offices to use dental code D1999 to report the excess cost of PPE. Our office will submit code D1999 and charge a flat $10 to cover the excess cost. If your insurance does not reimburse this added cost of PPE, the $10 charge will be applied to your account.

We have made some changes around the office to help protect our patients and staff. These changes include:

  • A new Patient Screening Form to ask questions regarding COVID-19. This will be done over the phone and when you arrive in the office.
  • We ask you to kindly call us from your car when you arrive to see if your room is ready. Please do not enter the office unless our staff confirms this with you. We are limiting the number of patients in the office and must clean rooms thoroughly before another patient may enter.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available when you enter and you will be asked to sanitize your hands. You will also find bottles available throughout the office. Please use these often to maintain clean hands.
  • Your temperature will be taken when you first arrive at the office.
  • If you are over the age of 10, you will be required to pre-rinse with 1% hydrogen peroxide
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys, and other items that are difficult or impossible to disinfect.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. This may mean different time options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area.

These steps are being taken to keep you safe in our office. We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have. To make an appointment, please call our office at (757)484-4197 or visit our contact page.
