We believe that every patient deserves to be happy with their smile, and that’s why we offer Invisalign at Smileplicity Dentistry. This innovative orthodontic treatment gradually moves your teeth into a desired position without the inconvenience or unattractive appearance of traditional metal braces. If you’re interested in Invisalign, call us today to learn more about how these clear aligners can improve your smile!
Invisalign involves a series of clear plastic aligners that a patient wears in sequence to straighten crooked, overcrowded, or gapped teeth. During your initial Invisalign consultation, Dr. Atari will take digital impressions of your teeth to create your custom aligners. As you wear each set of aligners, pressure is applied to your teeth and they are gradually moved into proper position, creating a beautiful, straight smile. You will wear each set of aligners for two weeks, and come in for check-ups with Dr. Atari every six weeks to make sure your treatment is progressing successfully.
Proper oral hygiene is essential to keeping your Invisalign aligners clean, clear, and odor-free, so it’s important to brush and floss regularly during treatment. For the best results, you should wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day. When you do take your aligners out, brush them gently to make sure that saliva and bacteria are thoroughly cleaned off. And don’t hesitate to call us if you have any questions about how to care for your aligners!
The cost of Invisalign varies, and depends on the extent of your treatment as well as how many sets of aligners you will need. During your consultation and treatment planning, Dr. Atari will go over the cost of care, and offer patient resources to help bring Invisalign within your budget. Call us today at (919) 298-2308 if you have any questions, and our knowledgeable, friendly team will be happy to help!
