Invisalign® – invisible braces are an easy and painless way to straighten teeth; they are especially nice for adults who never had their teeth straightened when they were younger and don’t want a mouth full of metal!

Invisalign uses clear aligners to gradually move your teeth, bringing them into alignment over the course of your treatment. The aligners are custom-made to fit your mouth and are invisible to others. Typically, new aligners are provided weekly, gradually moving your teeth into place.

Treatment generally follows this procedure:

  • Initial consultation with your provider at Woods Dentistry determines whether Invisalign is right for you.
  • Your dentist uses either a physical impression or a digital scanning system of your teeth, used to create a treatment plan for you.
  • Your Woods Dentistry provider maps out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will take.
  • You wear your aligners 20 – 22 hours a day for the best results; take them out to eat and to brush and floss to maintain good oral health.
  • At the end of your treatment your teeth and smile are ready for the world!

Straight teeth are important for more than esthetic reasons; when your teeth are crooked or your bite isn’t correct, cleaning and flossing may not be able to get to the difficult spots to clean in your mouth. Thus, oral care can be compromised. Invisalign allows for crooked teeth to be straightened, thus keeping your teeth clean is more easily accomplished.

Crooked or overlapping teeth also contribute to gum disease. Beyond the cosmetic benefits of Invisalign, oral health is greatly enhanced by teeth straightening using Invisalign.

Among payment options, many insurance providers cover a significant portion of your cost. Check with your provider to see if coverage for orthodontia covers Invisalign treatment.
