When you live a busy life on the go, traditional braces may get in the way of your lifestyle. If you would like to discreetly straighten your teeth, Dr. George Eifler may suggest that you try Invisalign®. This treatment is a game-changer for patients who want straighter teeth without brackets and wires. Call our office at 602-956-2260 to schedule your consultation for Invisalign in Phoenix, Arizona. During your consultation, our prosthodontist at Valley Dental Group can talk to you about options and whether you would benefit from this treatment.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth through a series of tiny steps toward the desired final position. These appliances are made with Invisalign’s advanced, clinically proven technology to create a smooth, comfortable, medical-grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. And because the aligners are removable, you can still eat and drink what you want during treatment. Additionally, brushing and flossing is quite easy — simply remove the aligners and brush and floss as usual. No need to worry about the hassle of cleaning around metal wire braces.
You will need to wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day in order to see results. The length of Invisalign treatment varies from person to person, but on average, most people complete treatment in about 12 months. It is typically covered by orthodontic insurance in the same way that traditional braces are covered. However, coverage varies from plan to plan, so it is best to check with your insurance provider to see what is covered.
If you are interested in receiving our Invisalign treatment for a straighter smile, be sure to schedule a consultation with our prosthodontist to see if it is the right option for your specific case. We can discuss service options and create a customized treatment plan meant to help you toward a straighter smile.
