Why Choose Gillis Dental for Invisalign?

How Invisalign Works

If we determine that you are a good candidate for Invisalign, we will use advanced technology to capture a digital impression of your teeth. Invisalign will use that impression to manufacture your custom-made clear aligners. You will wear each aligner for 20 – 22 hours each day for about two weeks before you graduate to the next. Each one will apply gentle pressure to your teeth, gradually moving them closer to their ideal positions. After you work your way through all of your aligners, we will provide you with a retainer to prevent your teeth from drifting back out of place.

Indications for Invisalign

Invisalign can correct most types of mild to moderate dental misalignment, including common problems like crowded teeth, gaps between the teeth, and malocclusion (bite problems).

Crowded Teeth

If your teeth are too close together (or you have extra teeth), you are at an increased risk of cavities, gum disease, and broken teeth. Invisalign, along with possible extractions, can allow each of your teeth to have the space it needs to stay healthy and functional.

Gaps Between Teeth

Large gaps between the teeth are often regarded as unsightly, and they may make it easier for the gums to suffer irritation. Invisalign can gradually move the teeth closer together, resulting in a healthier, more attractive smile.

Bite Alignment

Overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite are some common bite problems that we see in our practice. They can cause TMD, mouth breathing, and a range of other issues. Invisalign, along with other orthodontic accessories, is often able to correct a poor bite.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

The price of Invisalign depends on the severity of your misalignment, how many aligners you will need, and a few other factors. We will provide you with a cost estimate during your complimentary consultation. In some cases, insurance covers part of the cost of Invisalign, and most patients qualify for low-interest financing. Although Invisalign presents a significant investment, the benefits to your oral health and appearance make it a wise use of money!
