Invisalign®

If you have always wanted straighter teeth but cringe at the idea of getting braces, Invisalign® could be the perfect treatment for you. Invisalign® is a modern teeth-straightening solution that uses clear trays specifically molded to improve your unique smile. Dr. Kevin Sands has used Invisalign® to transform the smiles of countless patients. With Invisalign®, you can achieve a perfectly straight, attractive smile without the unsightly appearance and discomfort of metal braces.

Who Can Benefit
From Invisalign®

Why Choose
Invisalign® Over Braces?

Better Appearance

Braces are known for their unappealing appearance. Most patients are only willing to tolerate braces because they want the attractive smile that braces can help them achieve. Invisalign®, on the other hand, is almost undetectable. Invisalign® patients can enjoy virtually invisible teeth straightening so that the smile will look increasingly more inviting throughout the course of treatment.

Maintain Oral Health

EBraces make oral hygiene habits more difficult to maintain. Even with vigilant effort, flossing and brushing are much more challenging and can fail to adequately remove food particles from between the teeth and wires. Invisalign® allows you to brush and floss normally so that you can maintain the best oral health throughout your treatment.

More Comfortable

Braces consist of sharp metal pieces that can irritate your cheeks and gums, causing discomfort and pain. Invisalign® is made of a smooth, comfortable plastic that greatly improves patient comfort while realigning and repositioning the teeth.

No Dietary Restrictions

With braces, foods such as nuts, popcorn, and sticky or hard candy must be avoided. Other foods such as lettuce or seeds can easily get stuck in the braces. The Invisalign® trays are removed when eating, which means that you can eat whatever foods you desire.

A More Flexible Schedule

While most patients with braces typically need to visit their orthodontist once per month, patients with Invisalign® only need to make office visits every four to six weeks. This makes Invisalign® a more flexible treatment so that you can continue to manage your many appointments.

Your Concerns

The Treatment Process

Invisalign® treatment can be broken down into the following steps:
  • Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for Invisalign®, then X-rays, pictures, and impressions will be taken of your teeth to create 3D digital images. Using these images, Dr. Sands will devise a precise treatment plan for you.
  • Custom-made, clear Invisalign® trays are given to you to wear for at least 20 to 22 hours every day. You should only remove them to eat, brush, or floss. Invisalign® will gradually and gently cause your teeth to shift and straighten.
  • Every few weeks, you will switch to a new set of alignment trays to advance your Invisalign® treatment. Checkups every four to six weeks allow Dr. Sands to monitor your progress.
  • Once treatment is complete and your beautiful smile has been revealed, retainers may be devised to ensure that your smile retains its newly improved appearance.

Treatment Length

Invisalign® treatment for most adults takes approximately one year, though every case is unique. Invisalign® for adolescents is comparable to the length of time required for braces.

Costs

Invisalign® is an investment into your future and can give you an attractive, straight smile and better dental health throughout your lifetime. The total financial cost will be determined during your personal consultation. In some instances, your dental insurance company may pay for Invisalign®.

Maintaining Results

To maintain your smile after treatment with Invisalign®, be sure to:
  • Wear your retainer as instructed
  • Brush and floss regularly
  • Continue visiting the dentist for regular treatments
  • Avoid harmful habits such as biting your nails or using your teeth as tools
