We are a Platinum Invisalign Provider
Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with our doctors can determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.
What is it?
Invisalign treatment, whether Invisalign, Invisalign Teen or Invisalign First, uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective treating numerous types of cases. While most offices have an increase fee for Invisalign, at Higginbottom Orthodontics, Invisalign and Braces are the same cost. Let this esthetic option guide you to the smile you have always wanted without everyone knowing that you are undergoing treatment.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem, and actually easier than with braces. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time in your doctor's office getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners 22 out of 24 hours for approximately one week, removing them only to eat, drink anything but water, 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 positions. You'll visit us about once every 2-3 months to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 18 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment will vary from case to case.
