What is Invisalign® treatment?

Invisalign® treatment is a set of small, clear aligners that straighten your teeth without the need for traditional brackets and wires. Using sophisticated 3-D imaging technology, Invisalign® clear aligners are created specifically for your teeth, which means better and more predictable results.

Is Invisalign® treatment right for me?

If you’re looking for a more discrete and effective way to improve your smile, then Invisalign® treatment is definitely a great choice. Both teens and adults benefit from Invisalign® treatment, too. Teens particularly appreciate how discrete Invisalign® clear aligners are and how much easier they are to maintain than standard braces. Invisalign® aligners are made out of clear plastic, so your smile can still shine through during the duration of your treatment. Also, there’s no need to worry about getting food stuck in your brackets or figuring out how to floss around wires. Adults certainly appreciate these aspects of Invisalign® treatment too, and furthermore find that it works better with a busy lifestyle. In fact, you can leave Invisalign® clear aligners out completely for up to two hours per day.

How long do I need to wear Invisalign® aligners?

The amount of time you need to wear Invisalign® clear aligners depends on your specific case. McKenzie Family Dentistry in Hannibal will help create a plan tailored to your needs and answer all of your questions. Some people only need to wear Invisalign® aligners for six months to achieve their perfect smile. Better still, you may start to see results in only a matter of weeks!

How much does Invisalign® treatment cost?

The cost of Invisalign® treatment is similar to that of standard braces. At McKenzie Family Dentistry, we’ll give you an estimate based on your individualized treatment plan. Insurance may cover some or all of the cost of Invisalign® treatment, similar to policies that cover standard braces. McKenzie Family Dentistry also offers flexible payment options. Come in for a consultation and we’ll answer all of your questions about cost and payment options.

What are the steps to get Invisalign® treatment?

Once you’ve decided that Invisalign® treatment is right for you, we’ll use our iTero Element® scanner to make a 3-D image of your teeth. Then, the Invisalign® aligners are customed-made specifically for your mouth and for your desired outcome. Once it’s time to pick up your aligners, we’ll make sure they fit correctly and equip you with everything you need to know about what to expect from your treatment.

What happens when I’m done with Invisalign® treatment?

What happens after you’ve completed your Invisalign® treatment depends on your specific needs. One option is the Vivera® retainer. Vivera® is up to 30% more durable than standard retainers, and just like Invisalign® clear aligners, it’s custom-fit just for your smile. It helps the fantastic results of Invisalign® treatment last even longer.
