What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign provides a more comfortable (and discreet) orthodontic treatment option compared to conventional metal braces. It uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually improve the position of your teeth and jaw.
Invisalign aligners are made from a durable thermoplastic called SmartTrack®. The material doesn’t contain gluten, latex, or BPA, so it’s safe for individuals with allergies as well as pregnant people.
What types of issues can Invisalign correct?
At DentAlign NYC, Dr. Kakosian uses Invisalign to correct various alignment issues, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Overlapping teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Misaligned and malpositioned jaws
You might also benefit from treatment with Invisalign if you have an abnormal bite that increases your risk of TMJ or makes it hard to keep your teeth clean.
What does orthodontic treatment with Invisalign involve?
At DentAlign NYC, orthodontic treatment begins with a review of your dental health history, an oral exam, and a series of oral X-rays. If Dr. Kakosian determines you have an alignment issue that can benefit from treatment, he takes digital scans of your mouth and uploads them to a computer-aided design (CAD) program.
Dr. Kakosian uses the program to develop an orthodontic treatment plan that maps out the movements of your teeth and jaw. After explaining the entire process, he sends your scans to an Invisalign laboratory that manufactures your first set of custom aligners.
During the course of orthodontic treatment, you visit DentAlign NYC every two or three weeks. At each visit, you transition to a new set of aligners, and Dr. Kakosian monitors your progress. Make sure to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours each day, only removing them to brush your teeth or eat.
How long does orthodontics with Invisalign take?
Orthodontics with Invisalign often takes 6-12* months, but it might take longer depending on your oral health history and treatment goals. To ensure the process goes smoothly, attend each checkup, follow Dr. Kakosian’s instructions, and clean your aligners at least once a day.
How much does Invisalign cost?
The cost of Invisalign depends on various factors, including your insurance coverage and the alignment issues treated. Even so, the average cost of care at DentAlign NYC is $2,999 (limited time offer).
If you’re interested in undergoing treatment, Dr. Kakosian can develop an estimate following a comprehensive oral exam and in-office consultation.
