Invisalign represents an epic breakthrough in orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry. Using a series of thin plastic trays, our dentists now straighten your teeth in months instead of years. It’s true! Invisalign straightens teeth in up to half the time of traditional braces. Here’s how it works: First, our dentists scan your mouth with a small intraoral camera. We won’t stuff a giant tray full of goop in your mouth or make you gag! Next, dentists carefully plan everything using a 3D software. You then receive customized trays that perfectly snap over your teeth.
The first tray fits snugly and gently nudges your teeth a little closer to the ideal position. After a few weeks, your teeth have moved as far as that tray can take them. Next, simply discard the first tray and start wearing the next. Over time these trays gradually advance your teeth into the planned, perfectly straight position. And you have a beautiful new smile!
Because Invisalign trays are removable, you simply take them out to eat or give an important presentation. In addition, these trays are also completely transparent. This means your friends and colleagues (and strangers you’re trying to impress!) barely notice them. Finally, the trays are so comfortable that most of our patients forget they’re even wearing them. Compared to bulky braces, there’s not much choice.
Our Cosmetic Dentists can accelerate the Invisalign timeline
The dentists in our office can significantly shorten the Invisalign process. There are a few methods or appliances that can be used.
There is Acceledent, a mouthpiece that vibrates that can be used for ten minutes each day. The mouthpiece softly vibrates, exerting less than 20 times the force of an electric toothbrush. These micro vibrations slightly loosen the bone around your teeth, allowing the trays to re-position your teeth faster. This safe and painless technology has been proven to almost halve the treatment time in many cases.
There is also Orthopulse, light acceleration which is delivered to your teeth with a mouthpiece as well for 10 minutes each day. This device works very similarly to light treatment for the rest of the body where it helps with the cell turn over and movement of the teeth in the jaws.
And Propel is also a procedure that can be done in the office by the dentist 2 or 3 times during your orthodontic treatment that could also help accelerate your course of treatment.
Your Invisalign could be 30% Off
Many dental insurance plans don’t cover Invisalign or cosmetic dentistry. This makes us a little angry. Teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and cosmetic bonding are important aspects of dentistry. So… why aren’t they reimbursed? We at Soothing Dental loathe the restrictions imposed by the insurance industry. Moreover, we want to make quality dentistry much more accessible. Therefore, we offer our own Soothing Dental Membership Plans. These straight-forward plans discount your Invisalign treatment up to 30%. Even better, our plans cover additional work. There is no limit or cap!
