Invisalign

Invisalign makes it easy to straighten your teeth without bands, brackets, or wires

Forget everything you’ve heard about teeth straightening. Because a proven technology now exists that lets you straighten your teeth-invisibly.

A Clear Alternative

Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution so you can smile during as well as after treatment. In fact, virtually no one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them every two weeks and your teeth will move little-by-little toward the smile you have always wanted.

Invisible, Removable and Comfortable

Invisalign is comfortable to wear and it doesn’t require you to change your busy lifestyle. You visit your doctor every month or two to check your progression and get new aligners. Average treatment time is only about a year. Because aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favorite foods while brushing and flossing normally to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:Does Invisalign really work?

A: Yes. In orthodontic and dental practices worldwide, Invisalign has been effective at straightening teeth. Nine out of ten patients arc “very or extremely satisfied” with their Invisalign experience.

Q:How does Invisalign work?

A: Invisalign uses 3-D computer imaging technology to map the complete treatment from start to finish. From this plan, a series of custom-made aligners unique to your treatment is produced. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and gradually moves your teeth, before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.

Q:How much does Invisalign cost?

A: Only your doctor can determine the cost for your specific treatment. It depends on the kind of treatment you need, how long it takes, and even where you live. Invisalign treatment is often similar to the cost of traditional braces. In addition, if you have orthodontic insurance coverage, Invisalign is normally covered to the same extent as conventional braces. Many doctors also offer affordable monthly payment plans. Be sure to inquire about your options with your preferred provider.

Dr. McKenna and his staff are the best dental office I've ever regularly visited in my 59 years. I feel lucky to have discovered them. I'm part of their dentistry "family" now (I've been a patient for over 10 years, but I felt welcomed and at home on my first visit). I have 100% confidence in their skills - from the dentists to the hygienists to the bookkeeping staff and front office. I'm not even afraid of major dental work anymore, because IT DOESN'T HURT!
