Invisalign is a proven method for treating a range of dental problems related to the bite and cosmetic concerns including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Malocclusion
  • Overcrowding of teeth
  • Over bite
  • Cross bite
  • Underbite

We will evaluate your bite to determine if Invisalign is the best solution for meeting your needs. If a bite problem is related to jaw structure, we may refer you to an orthodontist for further evaluation and diagnostics. Invisalign is an effective treatment option for tooth positioning problems. Treatment can reposition the teeth to improve the function, comfort, and appearance of your bite.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

In addition to discreet treatment, some of the benefits of using Invisalign to treat your orthodontic concerns include:

  • Easy, comfortable treatment: the material used to make the invisible aligners will not irritate your gums and soft mouth tissue.
  • No dietary restrictions: removable aligners allow patients to enjoy their favorite foods while straightening their smile.
  • Normal oral hygiene: patients can remove their aligners daily for thorough tooth brushing and flossing, reducing the risk of gum disease and tooth decay.

Invisalign® What to Expect

Treatment with Invisalign will begin with a consultation and discussion of your dental health needs and cosmetic goals. We will go over all aspects of proposed treatment including costs, timing and expected results.

Invisalign uses digital impressions and CAD/CAM technology to accurately plan your treatment for more predictable results. We will create a custom treatment plan which is sent to the Invisalign lab where your unique set of aligners is made. The number of aligners needed will be dependent upon the desired result and will play a role in the overall cost and length of your treatment.

Patients can expect to change their aligners about every two weeks over the course of treatment. We will monitor your progress at periodic check up appointments and make adjustments as necessary.

We will recommend the use of a retainer after treatment is complete to maintain your new smile for a lifetime.

Invisalign® FAQs

Is Invisalign painful?

Most patients experience minimal or no discomfort during treatment. When changing aligners it is possible to feel some pressure on the teeth for the first day or so, but the aligner material does not irritate the gums.

Is Invisalign teen more expensive than metal braces?

Patients are often surprised to discover that Invisalign is comparable or less costly than traditional metal braces. Because every patient and their crooked teeth issues are different, Dr. Daljeet will go over all costs associated with treatment for your consideration during an initial consultation.

What happens after Invisalign?

After your Invisalign treatment is complete, you will be required to wear a retainer for a period of time. The retainer will help prevent orthodontic relapse, or your teeth from shifting back to their crooked position. It is very important that you wear your retainers. The last thing you want is for your teeth to reject treatment and waste the cost of treatment.
