What is invisalign Treatment?

Well-aligned, straight teeth are not just beautiful, they are more comfortable and healthier. An improper bite and crooked teeth may lead to future dental concerns that may be expensive to fix and painful. This is why our skilled team of dental professionals is happy to provide advanced Invisalign treatment — clear, removable aligners for our patients in Hartford County. Made custom to fit your teeth and your unique goals, Invisalign aligners are more comfortable and attractive than metal orthodontics because they may be taken out to make eating and cleaning your teeth easier. If you are interested in experiencing healthier teeth with advanced Invisalign technology, make an appointment at Rosenberg Orthodontics to get more information.

Who should get clear aligners?

There are multiple factors that may determine the alignment of your teeth: if you sucked your thumb, genetics, missing a tooth or teeth, and physical trauma to your face. If your teeth are misaligned, it may cause more oral health concerns, such as a bad bite (dental malocclusion), uneven wear on the enamel, difficulty chewing and speaking, plus jaw pain and toothaches. If our team finds one of these concerns in your annual dental examination, we can suggest an orthodontic procedure, like Invisalign orthodontics.

An Invisalign treatment is ideal for both teens and adults who would like straighter, healthier teeth without the hassle, pain, and look of braces. Even though the aligners should be in place for the majority of the day, your aligners may be removed for cleaning your teeth and eating, plus for special occasions and physical activities. Much less obvious than traditional orthodontics that poke and cut the inside of your cheeks, your family and friends will probably not realize that you are using your Invisalign aligners.

How does Invisalign Treatment work?

The initial Invisalign aligners will be made with impressions at Rosenberg Orthodontics. When they are ready, you will come back to receive your initial trays with instructions from a member of our team. You should keep your aligners in for at least 20 hours every day for your treatment to work, ideally taking them out only for cleaning and eating. In time, you will move on to your next set of aligning trays as they carefully shift your teeth closer to proper alignment. You need to attend appointments around every 4 – 6 weeks at Rosenberg Orthodontics to have your aligning trays evaluated and to get new impressions done so your next set of trays can be ordered. How long you need to use the Invisalign system will differ, considering the initial condition of your teeth and your goals; however, many patients need to wear trays for around a year.

What happens after clear aligner treatment?

As soon as your bite is aligned, it is vital to prevent your teeth from shifting into their original position. Vivera® retainers by Invisalign are created using the same materials to keep your teeth in position once your Invisalign treatment is complete. Every retainer is made custom at the Invisalign dental lab based on impressions taken after your orthodontic treatment is done. Our team will discuss with you how long to wear your retainer, as well as how to clean it after it is sent from the laboratory. Additionally, we will keep watching the alignment of your teeth and bite during your dental examinations to make sure your teeth stay in their new place.

Does insurance cover Clear Aligners?

A portion of Invisalign treatment may be covered under dental insurance. Our team can determine your coverage and figure out your remaining fees. Rosenberg Orthodontics accepts many forms of payment if you are not using insurance. At your Invisalign consultation, Dr. Rosenberg will talk about how much your treatment may cost and how our office can help to make your Invisalign treatment fit into your budget with payment plans and medical financing.

Invisalign FAQ

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

The length of time it takes to complete Invisalign treatment depends on the complexity of each individual case and a patient’s compliance with following the treatment plan. On average, Invisalign treatment may take between 1 – 2 years. During your consultation, our Rosenberg Orthodontics providers can discuss the estimated timeframe for your care.

What happens if I don’t wear my aligners for 20 hours each day?

Wearing your Invisalign aligners for 20–22 hours each day is crucial to staying on track with your treatment plan and targeted completion date. If you fail to follow the recommended protocol, it can take longer to complete your care, and may require additional treatment if your teeth move back to their previous positions.

What if I break or lose an aligner?

If you happen to damage or lose one of your aligners, it's very important to contact our office promptly. Our Invisalign dentists will provide you with additional instructions and will work quickly to order a replacement aligner for you.
