Invisalign® is the clear choice for many adults and teens who would like to straighten their teeth and improve their smile. Invisalign® is nearly Invisible and is removable—so no one knows you’re wearing them. It’s just as effective as metal braces, and it’s much more comfortable, too. Best of all, it’s affordable, with different financing options available through Dr. Gutiérrez’ office.
Invisalign® is a state-of-the-art orthodontic device that gently positions and straightens your teeth. The difference between Invisalign® and metal braces is significant because Invisalign® uses a series of transparent, removable plastic retainers instead of metal brackets and wires. They’re also custom-made for your mouth and teeth, which gives our patients a comfortable experience as their teeth are being positioned. Invisalign® takes about as long to properly straighten teeth as traditional metal braces do but is much easier to use and provides excellent results.
Invisalign® uses state-of the art technology to ensure a customized fit. First, your orthodontist will obtain impressions of your teeth and then take pictures and X-rays of your teeth and mouth. Invisalign® uses this information in its digital 3-D imaging system that will help your orthodontist determine your treatment plan. Using this technology, your orthodontist will be able to show you just how your teeth will be repositioned and can even show you how your smile will look after your invisalign® treatment is finished.
Invisalign® then makes a series of customized, transparent aligners based on your treatment plan. Each aligner will position your teeth for about two weeks, and then you’ll put the next set of aligners in. About every 6 weeks, you’ll meet with your orthodontist to make sure that your treatment plan is on schedule.
Invisalign® treats a wide range of dental issues and can be used to correct:
Since Invisalign® is customized for each individual patient, the cost depends on your specific treatment plan, the length of time you’ll be using the aligners, and what particular dental problems you may have. Gutiérrez Orthodontics makes Invisalign® treatment affordable by offering financing and low monthly payment options, plus CareCredit and Flexible Spending Accounts.
