Whether you forgot to wear your retainer, or you never had braces as a child, there are countless adults that have issues with the alignment of their teeth.
Did you know that imperfections in how your teeth come together can cause major problems down the road? Broken teeth, night time grinding, bone loss, periodontal disease, and TMJ disorder can all be exacerbated by malocclusion. Small corrections to the alignment of teeth early can prevent a lifetime of tooth damage and pain. Therefore, straight teeth aren’t just about esthetics, it’s about protecting your teeth for years to come.
Invisalign is a series of clear retainers that our patients wear for 2-3 weeks at a time. They move your teeth slowly over the course of treatment. These retainers are virtually invisible and can only be seen from a couple feet away. Clear braces can straighten your teeth in as little as 12 weeks for minor cases. Severe cases are easily treated as well, they simply require more time because of the increased movement.
First of all, invisible braces need to be worn about 22 hours per day due to the complex nature of teeth and the bone surrounding them. If the trays are not worn consistently, the teeth may therefore not move as predictably. We will monitor your progress every four weeks to ensure teeth are moving according to schedule.
Pricing is based on how long treatment will take. In most cases, your therapy costs 2-4 times LESS than traditional braces with an orthodontist.
Following treatment, our patients often wonder what took them so long to improve their smile. Contact us today to see if clear aligner therapy is right for you.
