Are you looking for an orthodontic treatment option that isn’t braces, but has the same perfect smile result? You’re in the right place. Allow us to introduce you to Invisalign.
What’s the Invisalign Inside Scoop?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment option in the form of a clear aligner made of smooth, flexible plastic that won’t irritate the inside of your mouth. The clear plastic improves your smile discreetly. The aligners are worn over the teeth and are designed to gradually move your teeth into the desired position. Invisalign aligners are even removable – solidifying the claim that they have revolutionized orthodontic treatment. This comfortable alternative to traditional braces has no metal, no wiring, and no food restrictions.
Keep in mind that your aligners should be worn for about 22 hours each day to gradually achieve alignment, bite correction, space closure, or whatever your custom treatment goals are. Trays should only be taken out when eating, drinking, and brushing your teeth. But, it’s possible that you won’t even be able to tell the difference!
Could Invisalign be an orthodontic treatment option dream come true? Maybe! We won’t pick favorites, but these virtually invisible trays are custom-made just for you, and clearly have a lot of positives.
Know What To Expect.
Regardless of what type of orthodontic treatment you decide on, the Lincoln Orthodontics process is easy as 1, 2, 3. There’s no need to complicate something that should be straight-forward!
Invisalign treatment usually takes about 9 to 15 months on average, but keep in mind that every patient’s mouth is different, so no two orthodontic treatment timelines will look the same. Typically, the Invisalign process looks like this:
- Schedule a free consultation with Dr. Willett on a day and time that works for you.
- Dr. Willett will do a comprehensive, oral exam.
- We will take a 3-D X-ray to see where your teeth and jaw are at the beginning of the treatment and determine the underlying foundation and health of those structures
- An airway assessment will be completed to determine the possible impact of orthodontic treatment.
- Dr. Willett will take a digital scan of your teeth with our intraoral scanner to create a 3-D image of your mouth.
- We’ll review the expected treatment outcomes with a treatment simulator.
- Depending on your approval, Dr. Willett will then use that information to create a treatment plan made just for you. This is when your exact timeline will be laid out for you.
There’s no pressure to commit right away! Take some time to think about it if you need to. If you decide to proceed with Invisalign, your custom-fit aligners will be manufactured.
Your assessment and imaging will be completed in your free, one-hour consultation. Quick, easy, and stress-free!
Not Looking For Anything Serious? Try Our Invisalign Touch-Up Treatment.
It’s not uncommon for previous orthodontic patients to eventually need or want a smile touch-up. Remembering to wear your retainer every night can be an easy thing to forget – especially as time goes on. At Lincoln Orthodontics, we get it! Even though we are heavy advocates for wearing your retainer as instructed, at the end of the day, we are all human. Don’t feel bad if your teeth have shifted. Unfortunately, teeth can have a natural habit of doing that anyway, even if you are consistent with wearing your retainer. So, what is the solution for this? Lincoln Orthodontics’ Invisalign touch-up treatment options! Here’s the run-down, cost included:
- Touch-Up 1 is a 1 arch treatment that costs $1080
- Touch-Up 2 is a 2 arch treatment that costs $1880
Both of these options take under three months and are best for mild re-alignment. They can be summed up with three, often favored adjectives: comfortable, convenient, and affordable.
If you’re looking for a “quick fix” prior to special events such as weddings, graduations, interviews, etc., or you’re an adult seeking limited orthodontic improvements, Invisalign touch-up was made just for you!
