Invisalign

At Sikora Family Dentistry, we offer a wide range of orthodontic, restorative and cosmetic dentistry that can enhance your smile and give your confidence a boost. The Invisalign clear aligner system has been used by more than 4 million people to straighten their teeth and improve their smiles. It’s a great option for patients who don’t require complex orthodontic treatment but want to correct imperfections and achieve a straight, beautiful smile line.

Benefits Of Invisalign

Invisalign can help correct problems such as crooked teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, overcrowding, and gaps between teeth. Correcting these issues not only enhances your smile, it can help decrease your risk of developing dental problems like tooth decay, gum disease, TMJ disorders, headaches and even tooth loss.

The Invisalign system consists of a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually shift teeth until the desired result is achieved. Invisalign is discreet and provides a more aesthetically pleasing look than clunky metal braces. These comfortable, convenient aligners can be taken out for eating, drinking, social occasions, photos and brushing and flossing. Unlike traditional braces that use metal brackets and wire, there are no dietary restrictions or uncomfortable soreness and irritation with Invisalign. Additionally, Invisalign is covered by many insurance providers and is an affordable alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment with braces.

How Invisalign Works

The Invisalign system has been used by more than 4 million people to straighten their teeth and improve their smiles. At Sikora Family Dentistry, our certified Invisalign providers take impressions of your teeth to create a personalized treatment plan that will shift your teeth from their existing position to optimal alignment. This advanced digital technology also allows you to preview your new smile, see exactly how your teeth will move and give you an estimate of how long treatment will take.

The Invisalign lab uses these digital 3-D models to fabricate multiple sets of custom-made polyurethane plastic aligners that fit tightly over your teeth. You will wear these clear aligners 20 to 22 hours per day for two weeks, then move on to the next set of aligners in the series until your teeth are appropriately aligned. Our Invisalign providers will have you come in to the office to check your progress about every six weeks. Each custom-made clear aligner applies carefully controlled force to move your teeth until the desired outcome is achieved. Length of treatment varies, but the average adult case takes about 12 months.

With Invisalign Teen®, blue compliance indicator dots let you know if your teen’s aligners are being worn as prescribed. Invisalign Teen® also features eruption tabs to hold space open for molars that have not yet fully erupted.

Is Invisalign Right For You?

Although Invisalign can be used to fix many orthodontic issues, it’s not for everyone. At your consultation your dentist will do a thorough examination, take X-rays and photos and talk with you about which orthodontic treatment options will best meet your needs.
