Dr. Allie is Invisalign certified and has been treating adults and teens with nearly invisible retainers for several years. The Invisalign® system is a wonderful and convenient option for adult and teen orthodontic treatment today. This system uses clear retainers rather than conventional metal braces. Invisalign® can give you great results at about the same cost as traditional braces.
The Invisalign® system straightens your teeth with custom-made aligners made of a clear, thin, medical- grade polymer that is virtually invisible when worn. Since they are removable, you can eat, brush and floss normally. Our patients really love this!
Each aligner moves your teeth little by little until you get to the end of treatment and a new beautiful smile. Invisalign® is very comfortable and often less painful than traditional orthodontics.
A great feature of the process is the use of advanced 3D computer technology. Invisalign® combines proven orthodontic science with 3D computer graphics to project teeth movement. Each one of your aligners is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit snugly over your teeth and gently move them through every stage of your treatment plan. You and Dr. Allie can view your treatment plan on the computer, from beginning to end, even before you begin treatment. All in the Family Dental also uses a 3D intraoral scanner to take a digital impression of your teeth rather than the traditional gooey impressions. This is an extra awesome bonus for Invisalign patients!
Invisalign® fees are comparable to traditional braces, and orthodontic insurance usually covers Invisalign® to the same extent as traditional orthodontics.
Invisalign® has been proven effective in both clinical research and on thousands of patients in private practices worldwide. More than 100,000 patients have gone into treatment with Invisalign®.
Health Benefits of Straight Teeth
You may be surprised to know that the benefits of having properly aligned teeth extend far beyond a confident smile. According to the American Dental Association, straightening your teeth can actually significantly affect your overall dental health. Think about it — a smile can hardly be perfect if it's not a healthy one. Fortunately, with Invisalign®, having a confident smile and reducing your risk for tooth decay and gum disease go hand in hand.
The Invisalign Process at All in the Family Dental
1) Initial Exam:
If you are interested in Invisalign contact our office and schedule your FREE invisalign consult appointment. Dr. Allie will carefully examine your mouth and determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign. If you are a candidate you will return for a Records appointment.
2) Records Appointment:
At the records appointment we will take a series of photographs and we will use our 3D scanner to scan your entire mouth. Your case will be electronically sent to Invisalign.
3) Patient Approval Appointment
After Dr. Allie has treatment planned your case and she is happy with the clinical set up you will return for a patient approval appointment. At this time Dr. Allie will discuss the course of treatment and estimate the time it will take to complete the case. If the patient is on board we will approve the case and the patient will return to start treatment!
Dr. Allie carefully evaluates each patient case and if invisalign is not the best option for tooth movement she will happily refer to an orthodontist for the most ideal treatment!
