Our dentists are Preferred Invisalign® Providers, which means you’ll be receiving care from highly-trained orthodontic professionals.

Experiencing the Invisalign® Therapy Process

diagram showing the benefits of Invisalign clear alignersYour Invisalign experience will begin with an initial consultation. Your dentist will utilize our high-tech iTero® Intraoral Scanner to create digital models of your teeth as well as examine your oral health. These scans will be sent to a lab to create your custom aligners. It’ll take a couple of weeks until your trays are ready. You’ll return to our Madison Heights, MI office once they’re delivered so that your Invisalign dentist can ensure they fit.

You’ll swap out your Invisalign trays every two weeks. It’s crucial that you wear these aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours each day and only remove them when eating eat. You’ll also have to return to our office during treatment to track your progress.

Am I a Candidate for Invisalign®?

Invisalign is the perfect treatment for people looking to solve minor to moderate issues with misaligned teeth. It may be more beneficial to undergo traditional orthodontics if you suffer from more severe problems. Some issues that Invisalign can help correct include:

  • Misshapen teeth
  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • Issues with your bite’s alignment
  • Open gaps between your teeth

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Invisalign® safe for my teeth?

Invisalign won’t ruin your teeth’s health. In fact, by correcting your misalignment issues, these aligners can improve your smile’s structure. Under the supervision of an experienced dentist, you’ll face even fewer risks. During your monthly visits, your dentist will conduct regular Invisalign checkups to ensure your treatment goes smoothly without any issues.

Will Invisalign® change my face’s shape?

Depending on the severity of your alignment issues, Invisalign may change your face’s shape while your teeth are straightening. This is mainly due to your bite’s alignment slowly coming into place. Sometimes, you may not even notice the changes in your face until you compare photos from before and after your treatment or until you realize it while looking in the mirror.

Can I still eat while wearing my Invisalign®?

You’ll have to remove your aligners each time you want to eat or drink anything other than water. Eating while wearing Invisalign can damage or stain your aligner. If that happens, contact your dentist to get a replacement tray. Stained aligners still straighten your teeth, but they affect your smile’s appearance and make them look discolored.

Does insurance help cover Invisalign®?

Most dental insurance companies cover Invisalign therapy the same way they cover metal braces. Your insurance may pay a certain percentage of your Invisalign treatment or a specific dollar amount. It’s recommended that you contact your provider to get a better understanding of your coverage. Be sure to ask your dentist if they also offer any financing options.
