Las Vegas Orthodontics is a Certified Invisalign® Provider
At Las Vegas Orthodontics, we understand that not everyone can or wants to wear the bulky metal braces that are so very common – especially adults. Despite the reduction in size and discomfort of the new metal braces on the market, there is still a feeling of adolescence about the orthodontic treatment. Those patients who want beautiful, straight teeth without the pain of wearing traditional braces can invest in Invisalign®. The Las Vegas Orthodontics team of professionals are certified to provide Invisalign® to patients. The practice made the decision to include this orthodontic treatment option in its offerings so that patients have a wide range of products to select from, which gives greater autonomy in orthodontic health.
What is Invisalign® and Why Do Patients Want It?
Invisalign® uses a series of invisible, removable aligners to slowly readjust a patient’s teeth. This allows a person to receive high-quality orthodontic care, without having to wear bulky, metal braces. Patients reportedly feel much more confident smiling with the braces in, and enjoy the ability to eat and drink whatever they want because the aligners can be removed during meal times.
The orthodontic treatment option is made with 3D computer imaging technology that makes replications of a patient’s teeth and makes slow adjustments to the aligners so that necessary pressure is provided to move the placement of teeth over time. The technology is so trusted that over 70 percent of orthodontists in the U.S. and Canada are certified at this time with Invisalign®. Because the aligners are also removable, there is never any problem associated with brushing or cleaning teeth. Patients can pop the aligners out of their mouth daily to brush and floss, without having to work around the metal brackets of traditional braces. No metal wire or brackets also means that patients often spend less time in a doctor’s office getting adjustments made. The step-by-step process of teeth movement is tracked with the Invisalign® technology software so that an orthodontist and his or her patient can constantly see the progress being made.
How Much Does Invisalign® Cost?
Patients can achieve a radiant smile through orthodontic treatment cheaper than ever. There are many factors that play into the final cost of treatment, including how extensive are the corrections being made, how long the treatment will last and whether an insurance company will pay for the braces.
