What is Invisalign® Treatment?

Invisalign uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that almost no one can tell you’re wearing. With Invisalign, you can smile just as much during treatment as after you complete treatment. Made with 3D computer imaging technology, Invisalign aligners have been proven extremely effective for mild to moderate cases.

More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign aligners. However, TDR Orthodontics with clinics in the Detroit metro area is in the top 1% of all Invisalign providers in the country and is proud to be the #1 Invisalign provider in Southeast Michigan. Having traveled to various states and countries to teach other leading Invisalign providers, our orthodontists at TDR Orthodontics are truly leading the field, and their vast experience and knowledge allow our team to treat cases that most orthodontists could not.

Why Would I Want Invisalign®?

Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, but they are also removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth irritation during treatment. Additionally, no metal and wires usually mean you spend less time in your orthodontist’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your finished smile will look when your treatment is complete.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

With Invisalign treatment, you wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to their final position. During treatment, you’ll visit our office about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 12-24 months, and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

Invisalign® Frequently Asked Questions

What is Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign treatment is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses clear, nearly invisible aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are custom made for your teeth and gradually shift them into position. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, comfortable, and require few adjustments. They’re also virtually invisible, making them a popular choice for those who prefer a more discreet orthodontic treatment.

Is Invisalign treatment more expensive than braces?

The cost of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of your case, the duration of treatment, and the orthodontist’s fees. That said, the cost of Invisalign treatment is often comparable to that of traditional metal or ceramic braces, and in some cases, Invisalign treatment can be more affordable than braces. We recommend checking with your insurance provider to see if they cover Invisalign aligners, as some plans may help cover the cost.

Will my insurance cover my Invisalign treatment?

Many dental insurance plans now cover Invisalign treatment, but the exact amount of coverage varies based on your provider and your specific plan. We recommend contacting your insurance company directly to find out if you’re covered. At TDR Orthodontics we also offer flexible financing options and payment plans to make Invisalign treatment more accessible and affordable for our patients.

How will Invisalign aligners straighten my teeth?

Invisalign aligners work by applying gentle and consistent pressure to your teeth, which gradually moves them into the desired position. Your orthodontist will create a customized treatment plan that outlines the exact movements your teeth need to make in order to achieve a straighter smile. Over time, you’ll receive new sets of clear aligners that will continue to straighten your teeth until they’re in the correct position. Invisalign clear aligners are an effective orthodontic treatment for correcting a range of issues, including overcrowding, gaps, and bite problems.

How often should I wear my Invisalign aligners?

Consistency is key when it comes to Invisalign treatment. For optimal results, it is recommended to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, removing them only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. The more consistently you wear your aligners, the more effectively they can guide your teeth into their desired positions.

How is Invisalign treatment different from other at-home clear aligner options?

Invisalign treatment is the most advanced and clinically proven clear aligner system on the market. Unlike other at-home aligner systems, Invisalign clear aligners are tailored to the specific needs of each patient by orthodontic professionals. Our orthodontists hold years of experience in correcting orthodontic issues using Invisalign aligners, allowing them to create a personalized treatment plan customized for your needs. Over the course of your treatment, you’ll receive regular check-ins and progress updates from our orthodontists, adding an additional layer of assurance and accountability that you won’t find with other clear aligner options.

Are there any restrictions on what I can eat with Invisalign treatment?

With Invisalign treatment, there are no restrictions, allowing you to enjoy all your favorite foods without worrying about damage or compromising your progress. Simply remove your clear aligners before eating and drinking, and make sure to brush your teeth and aligners afterward prior to putting them back in.
