FAQ’s About Orthodontic Technology
Invisalign and Invisalign teen use a series of invisible, removable and comfortable tray aligners that are incredibly discreet. This allows you the confidence to smile more during your treatment.
In recent years, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen have become a much more accurate, more advanced option for all of our patients.
While Invisalign is a great option for most patients, it’s not always a great option for every orthodontic case.
More than anything here at HWH, our goal is to give you what we promised – a great smile – so all of our patients will need a consultation to determine if Invisalign is the best option.
Invisalign Teen is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teen’s teeth without the restrictions that come with metal braces. Rather than wires and brackets, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen use a series of clear, removable aligners that have been custom-made for your teen’s teeth. Simply put Invisalign Teen is Invisalign for teenagers.
You wear each set of aligners for 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, 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 the final position Dr. Larson has prescribed. You’ll visit Dr. Larson about once every 6-8 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
When looking at the cost for braces, we need to assess the severity, age, and complexity of your case. Overall there’s a variety of factors to consider including: length of treatment, type of orthodontia you choose, your insurance provider, and additional needs (tooth extraction).
After your initial consultation visit, we’ll discuss and provide you with an exact estimate for your unique case and information about financing.
