You may have seen or heard commercials for Invisalign clear aligners as an alternative to traditional metal braces. But do they work? At Horan & Phillips, we can show you how these amazing—and comfortable—plastic devices absolutely work over time to straighten teeth, address overbite and underbite issues, and much more to give you a smile you can be proud of! Ready to get started? Just get in touch with our team for a consultation.
Invisalign is a combination of technology and physical straightening devices administered by an experienced dental care professional that helps correct many different smile concerns over the course of months.
As a treatment system, Invisalign is designed to replace traditional metal braces for many people. It works in three distinct phases:
Visit us for a consultation, where you’ll receive a sneak peek at your new smile. Our dentists will make a 3D scan of your teeth and map out your unique treatment plan with Invisalign.
Get your aligners, wear them according to your dentist’s recommendations, and start to see results. You’ll have regular check-ins during treatment to trade out aligners as needed.
Invisalign treatment can take as little as 6 months to complete, though you’ll likely see results sooner! After treatment, your dentist will prescribe retainers to keep your smile in shape.
There are other aligner systems in the marketplace. However, Invisalign® was the original—and we feel it’s still the best—which is why we offer Invisalign® treatment at Horan & Phillips. We invite you to visit Invisalign’s website to get a sense of the range of dental issues these aligners can fix.
Yes, though in many cases, traditional metal braces will still be the best course of treatment. Invisalign is available to correct straightening issues in growing children as young as age 6, like crowding, spacing, and narrow dental arches. However, many considerations inform our recommendations on whether braces or Invisalign treatment are better for kids, tweens, and teens. Our experienced pediatric dentists at Horan & Phillips can help parents weigh their orthodontic options.
Invisalign treatment costs about the same as traditional braces. Most dental insurance plans will cover a portion of the cost of treatment, similar to how they reimburse for orthodontics. While Invisalign is an investment, there are many convenient ways to pay for treatment over time. Please call our office at (717) 293-2784 to learn more or book an Invisalign consultation today.
