The Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear, snap-on, custom fit, removable mouth trays that apply a controlled amount of force to your teeth, forcing them to shift. The system provides the same beautiful results as traditional braces, but since the trays are made of clear plastic, they are virtually invisible. In addition, because Invisalign trays are removable, they can be taken out while eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
The Invisalign System works begins by first creating a series of trays that will each moving your teeth gradually until the end result is achieved. At the end of each two-week period, you will switch trays. Throughout the process, you will visit Dr. Mallonee every six weeks to ensure treatment is progressing as planned. Once your treatment is complete, you will likely wear a clear retainer to ensure your new smile stays in place.
As with all orthodontic appliances, the cost of them varies according to the complexity of the case. However, Invisalign clear braces are generally more expensive than traditional braces. Insurance policies generally cover Invisalign to the same extent that they cover traditional braces.
We continually strive to provide the best orthodontic treatment for our patients. We are delighted to offer PROPEL, which “accelerates” orthodontic treatments in conjunction with Invisalign. This technology allows us to get most patients finished in half the time.
