How Invisalign Works

Invisalign works by using customized clear plastic trays that are made according to the impressions taken of your smile. Delivered as a series of aligners that you are expected to wear throughout treatment, you will be required to wear each set for 20-22 hours each day, 1-2 weeks at a time. When finished, you will trade them for the next in the series until you are finished.

The recommended wear time is essential to allow the trays to use gentle pressure to continually shift your teeth in the right direction so that when completed, you see a new and improved smile that is straighter and healthier.

The Invisalign Treatment Process

The Invisalign journey at Meadow Park Family Dentistry consists of several steps:

  • Initial consultation: During your first visit, Dr. Buchupally will discuss your dental concerns, assess your oral health, and determine if Invisalign is the right solution for you.
  • Digital impressions: Using advanced 3D imaging technology, we’ll take precise digital impressions of your teeth, which are used to create your custom treatment plan and aligners.
  • Custom aligners: Your personalized aligners are made using state-of-the-art technology, ensuring a comfortable and precise fit.
  • Aligner changes: You’ll switch to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, each set designed to gradually move your teeth into their desired position.
  • Regular checkups: You’ll visit Meadow Park Family Dentistry every 6-8 weeks to monitor progress and receive your next set of aligners. These appointments are essential for ensuring your treatment stays on track and yields the best possible results.
  • Post-treatment care: Once your Invisalign treatment is complete, Dr. Buchupally may recommend wearing a retainer to maintain your newly aligned smile. This will be discussed during your final appointment.

The Benefits of Invisalign

If you or a member of your family is considering Invisalign, you may wonder why they are a preferred option over traditional braces. Apart from the lack of visibility that Invisalign offers, this clear orthodontic system also:

  • Makes it easier to keep your teeth and gums healthy and free of food debris.
  • Allows you to eat the foods you love because you don’t have to worry about anything getting trapped in your braces.
  • Reduces the number of times you must meet with your dentist for follow-up appointments.
  • Produces fast results (on average) as opposed to traditional braces (12-18 months versus 2-3 years).

Invisalign for Teens

Invisalign is an excellent option for image-conscious teenagers who want to improve their smile without the stigma of metal braces. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for special occasions, allowing teens to maintain their confidence throughout treatment.

Invisalign Teen is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of adolescent patients, including:

  • Blue compliance indicators: These fade from blue to clear over time, helping both the teen and Dr. Buchupally monitor aligner wear and ensure the treatment stays on track.
  • Room for growth: Invisalign Teen aligners accommodate the growth of new molars, making them ideal for patients with developing dentition.
  • Replacement aligners: Teenagers can be prone to losing or damaging their aligners. Invisalign Teen includes six free replacement aligners to keep treatment on track.

Invisalign Cost and Dental Insurance

The cost of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of your case and the number of aligners required. Dr. Buchupally will provide a personalized treatment plan and cost estimate during your initial consultation.

Many dental insurance plans cover Invisalign treatment, often to the same extent as traditional braces. We recommend contacting your insurance provider to determine your coverage. At Meadow Park Family Dentistry, we also offer flexible financing options to make Invisalign more affordable for our patients.
