Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of! Dr. Graf will depict your complete treatment, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then, a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, until the final position of your teeth is achieved.
What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?
- Invisalign aligners are practically clear. You may go through your day-to-day interactions without anyone noticing you are wearing them!
- Invisalign is removable. Unlike braces, you have the ability to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
- Unlike braces, Invisalign contains no metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation in your mouth. Your office visits will also be much faster, because Invisalign requires no adjustment of wires or brackets!
- And finally, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
Frequently Asked Invisalign Questions
Does Invisalign really work?
Yes. Developed with orthodontists and used in dental practices worldwide, Invisalign has been highly effective at straightening teeth. Over one million patients have been treated world-wide!
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign creates a cast of your teeth, Dr. Graf will then create a map of your treatment from start to finish. Using this map, a series of custom aligners will be created. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and is then replaced by the next aligner in the series. This process gradually moves your teeth to their final positions.
How much does Invisalign cost?
Fortunately, the Invisalign system is often similar in price to traditional braces. Treatment costs vary from patient to patient based on factors that include the complexity of your case and the length of the treatment.
Do Invisalign aligners contain Bisphenol-A (BPA)?
No. Invisalign aligners and Vivera Retainers do not contain Bisphenol-A or phthalate plasticizers. These aligners and retainers are made with USP Class VI medical grade, high molecular weight, polyurethane resins. Tests have been conducted to determine the biocompatibility of these materials, and show that they are biocompatible and pass all applicable regulatory requirements and thresholds for human wear in the mouth. Of course, as with any medical device, you should consult with your health professional about your aligner or retainer treatment and any applicable risks of use.
