Invisalign Treatment and Your Health
The connection between your health and misaligned teeth is often overlooked, but can have serious consequences. Gum disease, receding gums, and misaligned teeth don't just wreak havoc on your smile, they can spread to the rest of your body and improve the risk of heart disease, stroke, lung disease, and other serious medical issues.
Invisalign Aligners vs. Braces
Invisalign treatment gradually straightens your teeth with clear aligners that naturally blend in with your smile, while braces use uncomfortable metal brackets, wires, and bands to adjust your teeth. Many people prefer Invisalign aligners because of their non-intrusive appearance and the fact that they are removable.
Invisalign Treatment vs. Other Brands
Doctor supervised orthodontic treatment is not similar to at-home DIY teeth straightening using DTC (direct-to-consumer) aligners that can be purchased online. Straightening your teeth without the supervision of a trained orthodontist can result in thousands of dollars of corrective dental work and even irreversible damage.
Living with Invisalign Aligners
Transform your smile and live your life the way you want - Invisalign aligners are designed to fit your lifestyle, not interrupt it. From wearing your aligners to maintaining your trays between check-ups, Invisalign treatment is a low-fuss, affordable option for straightening your teeth.
How Your Invisalign Treatment Plan is Created
When you choose Invisalign® clear aligners, you're choosing a personalized treatment option for straightening your smile. First, your dentist will scan your teeth with the state-of-the-art iTero® scanner, which provides a 3D image of your teeth. This allows your doctor to pinpoint any issues you may have, such as an overbite, underbite, crooked teeth, etc. Your doctor will then go over the results of your iTero® scan and address any questions or concerns you may have.
Why Choose Invisalign Clear Aligners
For many patients, Invisalign treatment can help them easily and quickly straighten their smiles without the hassle of traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are designed with your comfort, and lifestyle, in mind.

Other Things You Should Know
How to Clean Invisalign Aligners
Because Invisalign clear aligners are removable, patients must take special care to frequently clean and periodically replace their aligners. Aligners should be rinsed and lightly brushed every night and replaced with a fresh, new set every 1-2 weeks for best results.
How Much Does Invisalign Treatment Cost?
Since Invisalign aligners are custom-made, the cost will vary per patient. Most doctors will work with you to make sure that your treatment is affordable. Payment options typically include flexible, affordable payment plans, or financing through CareCredit, a financing program designed for healthcare services so patients can get the treatment they need without worrying about the cost.
Insurance plans also typically cover at least a portion of treatment, but if you're worried about whether you can afford Invisalign treatment, feel free to talk to your doctor and learn more about ’s payment options.
How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take
If worn day and night, and only taken out while eating, brushing, and flossing, Invisalign aligners can provide results in as little as 12-18 months. Although, most people start to see gradual changes only a few weeks after beginning treatment!
