Invisalign Treatment in Reno, NV
Invisalign clear braces have dramatically changed the way we approach the problem of misaligned teeth. Not only does Invisalign move your teeth faster than traditional orthodontics, but the material used to make Invisalign trays is also comfortable and discrete. Nobody ever has to know you’re going through treatment unless you tell them!
Dan Barrett DMD is committed to providing you with the most updated treatments available. Invisalign is one example of the way in which we use advances in dental technology and materials to bring our patients state-of-the-art dental treatments.
Advantages of Using Invisalign
We choose Invisalign for our patients because it offer several advantages over traditional orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are:
Comfortable – Invisalign aligners are made using a clear, flexible plastic that’s customized to conform comfortably to your teeth. Unlike traditional orthodontics, there are no wires or brackets to irritate the tender tissue inside your mouth.
Discrete – Since the material used for the aligner trays is virtually invisible, you can smile confidently because no one will even notice you’re wearing them!
Convenient – Going to a wedding or reunion and don’t want to wear the aligners? No problem! Treatment involves wearing the aligners every day for at least 22 hours. This allows time for you to take the trays out for eating, oral hygiene, and special events!
The Invisalign Treatment Process
Dr. Barrett starts by taking x-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth. He then inputs this information into Invisalign’s patented 3-D-imaging software that’s designed to develop a treatment plan just for you.
The same software is then used to fabricate a set of clear plastic aligners that straighten teeth over time. Approximately every two weeks, you will receive a new set of aligners to keep your teeth moving in the right direction. You will stay motivated through treatment because you will see progress every time you change to a new set of aligners.
Every case is unique, but you can be confident that within six to eighteen months, you will enjoy a beautiful smile.
We Work with Your Specific Needs
The team at the office of Dan Barrett, DMD, is committed to providing our patients with dental care that is customized specifically for them. In the case of minor misalignment problems, we may find that there’s a better treatment option for you. Dr. Barrett may recommend a simple esthetic procedure like crowns or veneers that conceal the problem without the need for orthodontic treatment.
Choosing Invisalign clear braces is a big decision, and you can be confident that we will support you and provide you with all the information you need. Many insurance companies cover a portion of treatment as they would for traditional orthodontics. We will be happy to prepare a pre-treatment estimate so you know exactly what to expect. If you’re not insured, we can help you apply for interest-free financing through CareCredit.
