What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a modern approach to straightening teeth without unsightly
braces. It uses a custom-made series of clear aligners made for you and only
Wearing the aligners will gradually shift your teeth into place
according to a treatment plan that we prescribe for you. There are
no metal wires, no metal brackets, and none of the discomfort
associated with regular braces. You simply pop in a new set of
aligners every two weeks and you will be on your way to achieving
a healthy and beautiful smile. All the while, no one will know you
are straightening your teeth!
How much does Invisalign cost?
At our office, Invisalign ranges from $4,500 to $5,500 depending on the
complexity of the case.
We also offer monthly financing
which allows you to break up your expense into affordable monthly
payments. For example, a $5000 treatment financed over 12 months
would work out to about $417 per month. It involves a simple
on-line application and approval is received within seconds.
Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign is clear. You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
Invisalign is removable. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want
Invisalign allows you to brush and floss normally to maintain good oral
hygiene thereby eliminating plaque buildup, periodontal disease and tooth
Invisalign is completely free of wires, rubber bands and metal. Patients
experience less dental irritation and require fewer adjustments
The Invisalign process has been proven effective in clinical
research and in orthodontic practices worldwide.
How does it work?
A treatment plan is formulated based on your treatment expectations and
Dr. Tappuni's assessment of your teeth and bite.
Impressions, X-rays and pictures are taken of your teeth and sent to Invisalign.
Align Technology uses proprietary 3-D imaging technology to produce a 3-D
virtual representation of your teeth from the impressions and X-rays.
Your 3-D virtual teeth are loaded into Align Technology software
that allows us to visualize and plan the movements of your
teeth, show expected final results and track the movements of
teeth during treatment.
The treatment planning phase is critical to the success of
Invisalign treatment, and often involves several iterations of
collaboration between Dr. Tappuni and Align Technology
technicians. It is here that Dr. Tappuni uses her knowledge of
biomechanics and experience to ensure that the aligners are well
Once Dr. Tappuni is happy with the alignment plan she will order your aligners.
Each set of aligners are worn for two weeks. Average treatment time is 8 month
to 1 year. You will have to visit us every 6 weeks for a short checkup to make
sure that all treatment is progressing as planned.
