A modern approach to straightening teeth, Invisalign® invisible plastic aligners gradually shift teeth into place.
Over the years, research and development have made the once embarrassing wearing of braces a less traumatic experience. If your dental health requires braces for either structural or cosmetic conditions, you now have the option to select clear braces.
Distinctive Dentistry offers a new solution to the old wires and metal braces with Invisalign – a way to straighten teeth by the use of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. The Invisalign system achieves the same results as embarrassing metal braces that used to correct teeth if they were too crowded, too far apart, or too crooked. Invisalign has proved to be effective in clinical research and dental practices to straighten teeth nationwide.
Dr. Streit or his dental hygienists makes an impression of your teeth and develops a treatment plan. The office then submits your information to Invisalign and with their 3-D computer technology, Invisalign creates your sets of customized aligners. By wearing each set of the aligners over a two-week period, you move your teeth gradually producing a straighter set of teeth. During your treatment, you can remove the clear braces and eat, brush, and floss as you normally would.
You want to wear your Invisalign clear braces full-time, day and night, because the aligners only work when you wear them. Remember, Dr. Streit created a treatment plan for your individual dental requirements. Your dental situation determines the number of clear braces sets you need and how long you need to wear them; however, most treatments produce desired results in 12 months or less.
Yes. Dentists across the United States treat patients with Invisalign clear braces. Dr. Streit may suggest clear braces if your teeth are too crowded, have spaces, or have shifted since wearing braces at an earlier age, and you want to feel more confident during the aligning process.
You begin by making an appointment with Distinctive Dentistry to schedule a careful examination of your teeth. Trained and certified in Invisalign orthodontics, Dr. Streit will determine if Invisalign is the right product for you.
As with the old, embarrassing, metal braces, the cost of Invisalign clear braces varies. The complexity of the treatment determines your expense. Most dentists charge the same price for Invisalign clear braces as they do for traditional, metal braces. Normally, if your dental insurance provides for traditional braces, clear braces are covered, as well.
