At Northalsted Dental Spa, our philosophy is that it’s never too late to get the straight, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Whether you’ve never undergone orthodontic treatment, or the beneficial effects of prior orthodontics have become compromised due to tooth movement or trauma, Invisalign provides gentle, discreet treatment to align and straighten teeth. Our talented dentist, Dr. Michael Griffin, has many years of experience helping patients achieve smiles they can be confident in.
What to Expect
During your initial consultation, the informative and friendly team at Northalsted Dental Spa will take X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your mouth, which will then be sent to a laboratory to outline a customized treatment plan. At this time, we will discuss realistic expectations of your treatment, as well as how your teeth will be moved throughout every stage of treatment.
Using our Invisalign treatment simulation, we’ll be able to give you a completely 3-D view of your treatment results! We’ll scan your mouth into our system and can then make changes tooth by tooth until you see the exact results you want! You’ll be amazed at your results before we even start treatment!
Using a series of custom-made plastic aligners, replaced about twice a month, your teeth will then be gently moved and repositioned. Although treatment time varies depending on your unique situation, many patients enjoy the benefits of Invisalign in as little as six months.
Treatment using Invisalign aligners offers results consistent with traditional orthodontics and addresses a range of concerns such as overbite and underbite, crooked and protruding teeth, and noticeable gaps between teeth.
Satisfied Invisalign patients have experienced a number of benefits from treatment, both during and after. The Invisalign experience is very different from that of traditional orthodontics:
- Invisalign aligners are nearly undetectable to others.
- Aligners are removable for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
- Unlike traditional metal braces that may snag and irritate soft tissues, Invisalign aligners are smooth to the touch and comfortable to wear.
- The cost of treatment is typically comparable to that of traditional orthodontics.
Invisalign has an extremely high rate of compliance, testament to its flexible approach to treatment that is easily integrated into a range of lifestyles. Time and time again, our patients have listed Invisalign’s ability to seamlessly blend with their daily activities and habits as the greatest perk. Perhaps you have a job where you meet face to face with clients on a regular basis and would appreciate the discreet option the treatment offers. Not only is your confidence improved by a straighter, more symmetrical smile after your treatment concludes, but your confidence is not compromised during treatment by you wondering whether people are staring at your orthodontics. We work with most insurance providers, and we provide financing options to place the cost of Invisalign within your budget.
After treatment is completed, if you’re looking to add an extra sparkle to your newly improved smile, we offer teeth whitening treatments to add a finishing touch. Many of our patients prefer to combine the two for a truly dazzling result.
If you’ve been putting off orthodontics because you don’t want a mouth full of metal, now you have the perfect solution! Invisalign can get you the smile of your dreams, and often in even less time than regular dental braces.
