What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners & How Do They Work?
Anderson Family Dentist provides Invisalign orthodontics for kids, teens and adults in Findlay, Ohio and beyond! Invisalign® is an orthodontic system that uses a series of clear teeth aligners to gradually straighten the teeth. This advanced orthodontic system uses removable plastic trays that are easy to care for and comfortable to wear. Each set of discreet invisible aligners (removable) are custom-made to fit comfortably over teeth and are to be worn throughout the day and night.
We use digital imaging technology to scan your mouth in order to make multiple sets of clear braces that are designed to be swapped out every two weeks. Each pair is specially customized according to your teeth’ impression for a correct and aligned position as your treatment progresses. Unless instructed otherwise, you will return to our office during treatment so that our Invisalign orthodontist can track your progress and make any necessary adjustments.
If you suffer from the following orthodontic conditions, you could be a great candidate for Invisalign:
- Crooked Teeth
- Gaps or Spaces Between Teeth
- Open Bites
- Crowded Teeth
- Misshapen Teeth
Your Invisalign Consultation
During your consultation, our Invisalign dentist will carefully examine your teeth and jaw using digital x-rays and imaging technologies to determine a correct diagnosis. If you decide Invisalign is right for you, he will take comfortable digital impressions of your teeth and use those impressions to develop your custom orthodontic treatment plan.
Most patients with mild-to-moderate misalignment are generally great candidates for Invisalign. However, if our dentist discovers a more severe orthodontic issue, he may recommend traditional orthodontics to straighten your teeth instead.
Traditional Metal Braces
If you or your teenager suffer from more severe smile misalignment, including crooked teeth, crowded teeth, jaw problems, or a misaligned bite, our orthodontist may recommend traditional metal braces. Even with the broad spectrum of teeth straightening systems on the market today, metal braces are still the most common treatment for orthodontic patients of all ages. Modern metal braces are flatter and smaller, making them much more comfortable than ones worn in the past. And, brackets and bands can even be customized for color-you can show off your team spirit every time you smile!
Retainers & Post-Orthodontic Treatment
Once you've completed your dental braces phase of treatment, Dr. Touhalisky will recommend a retainer to help keep your smile straight and healthy. Lost your retainer? We can help! Just give us a call and we'll help you get a replacement as quickly as possible.
How Much Does Orthodontic Treatment Cost?
Your total out-of-pocket orthodontic treatment costs will likely vary depending on the following criteria:
- The specific terms of your dental insurance coverage
- The necessary length of your Invisalign treatment
- If any preliminary procedures or treatments must be completed prior to you beginning Invisalign
At Anderson Family Dentist, never want your total Invisalign or braces cost to prevent you from receiving the treatment you need. That's why we offer a selection of payment plan options and an in-house discount dental plan to help make it easier for our patients to finance their care!
