Invisalign is the breakthrough technology that lets you have the smile you've always wanted without the hassle of traditional metal braces. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you'll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves bonding tooth colored attachments to some teeth (using filling material that will be removed when treatment ends),changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step-by-step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike traditional braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth. An average Invisalign course of treatment takes about a year.

Invisalign Self Assessment
Invisalign corrects many orthodontic issues without the hassles of traditional braces. This means no unattractive metal wire, no uncomfortable glued-on brackets and no annoying rubber bands that can leave your mouth sore. Invisalign uses a series of clear and custom-fit removable aligners; we are able to straighten your teeth in no time. In most cases, Invisalign treatment takes about a year.
The total cost of Invisalign treatment is similar to that of traditional braces. Many dental insurance plans cover Invisalign treatment just as they would with regular metal braces. Every unique case has many different factors that can all affect total treatment cost so it's extremely difficult to put a price tag on custom treatment plans.
Dickinson Dental can do all the leg-work for you and will check with your dental insurance provider to see just how much they will cover.

For many years when people wanted to straighten their teeth the best option was “traditional” metal braces bonded to their teeth using brackets, wires, and small rubber bands. This allowed dentist to close gaps, rotate and/or pull teeth down into alignment, and correct their biting position. When you hear someone say they are going to the dentist to have their "braces tightened" they usually are just getting a new arch wire or have the position of their rubber bands changed.
