Invisalign & Invisalign Teen

Invisalign is a new technology that requires greater skill and planning to use than traditional braces. Your orthodontist not only must design how your teeth are to be positioned, but must also anticipate how your teeth and jaws will respond during the course of treatment. Thus, many orthodontists and non-orthodontists avoid recommending Invisalign as an option, or they cut corners on esthetic and functional goals to make Invisalign less complicated for them to use. Some doctors also cut corners to make their fees appear cheaper when in fact you cheaper when in fact you are receiving a lower level of care.

 

We are the Most Experienced Orthodontists in the region with Invisalign and have patients traveling from across the US to be treated in our office. Additionally, Dr. Scott lectures to orthodontists around the country about Invisalign and helps to establish best practices. At FreySmiles, you can feel confident that you are receiving the highest standard of care.

A Modern Approach to a Beautiful Smile

Using the latest digital technology, we craft your vision for your smile and carefully plan the individual tooth movements from beginning to end to achieve your esthetic and functional goals, whether they are simple or complex. Based on our exact specifications, Invisalign fabricates a series of custom-made tooth aligners out of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic. Wearing these aligners over your teeth removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss, and changing to the next set in the series about every 1–2 weeks will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. The best part is that most people won’t even know your straightening your teeth, and you’ll get the smile you deserve with little interference to your daily life.

There are many tools that we can use to deliver our signature smiles, but when you are deciding on treatment it is important to consider what will work for your lifestyle.

There is minimal interference in how you live, and in the right hands Invisalign produces the same beautiful outcomes as traditional braces.

Invisalign is Not Just For Adults

As a parent you understand how valuable a healthy smile is to your child’s future, but between school, sports, their first job, and even prom, braces may not be the ideal choice to straighten their teeth. With Invisalign you can give your child the confidence of a great smile without all the restrictions of metal braces and let them focus on being a kid.

FAQ

Hover/click the questions below to reveal the answers.

1
Does Invisalign work as well and as fast as braces?

Wearing your retainers is essential to preserving your smile following any comprehensive orthodontic treatment. Since teeth shift throughout life, you will need to wear your retainers at night for as long as you want to keep your teeth straight. The type of retainers you receive depends on your initial malocclusion.

2
How Long Will Invisalign Treatment Take?

The length of treatment depends on the amount of tooth movement required to meet your treatment goals. Most treatments take 10–18 months or less in our office, but ultimately your biology is the limiting factor.

3
How often do I have to wear my aligners?

In order to work as designed, your aligners must be worn at least 20–22 hours per day. To most it becomes second nature.

4
How frequent are my appointments with Invisalign?

Because we are able to digitally design your treatment, frequent appointments are not necessary. This means that there are fewer total appointments and treatment can be designed around your schedule. Most patients are seen every 3 months.

5
Will Wearing Aligners Affect my Speech?

Invisalign typically does not interfere with speech significantly, though it will feel different talking for the first few days.

Will Wearing Aligners Affect my Speech?

Invisalign typically does not interfere with speech significantly, though it will feel different talking for the first few days.

8
Does Invisalign Cost More than Braces?

Not at our office. We do whatever it takes to deliver great smiles and healthy bites.

9
Does Insurance Cover Invisalign?

13
Will I Need to Wear Retainers After Invisalign?

Wearing your retainers is essential to preserving your smile following any comprehensive orthodontic treatment.
