What Is Invisalign?

ACE Dental of Temple is excited to offer the Invisalign teeth-straightening system to patients in our community. Teeth that are well-aligned not only offer a more attractive appearance for your smile — they are generally healthier, easier to clean, and often more comfortable. An improper bite and crooked teeth may lead to future dental problems that can cause other oral health concerns and may be more challenging or expensive to repair. To help patients achieve straighter, healthier smiles, our certified Invisalign dentists offer orthodontic treatment with this clear aligner system. These teeth aligners can be removed to help patients clean their teeth with greater ease and enjoy their favorite foods. If you are looking for a more discreet alternative to traditional braces, we invite you to meet with our Temple, TX team, and explore the option of Invisalign!

Are You a Candidate for Invisalign?

Tooth misalignment may be the result of childhood thumb-sucking, genetics, physical injuries, or tooth loss. When teeth are not properly aligned, the result may lead to worn or broken teeth, jaw pain, functional issues, and even lower self-esteem. Adults and teens interested in straightening their teeth without the look of traditional braces may be good candidates for Invisalign, as well as those who play sports or musical instruments. Invisalign may be ideal for addressing orthodontic concerns, such as:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Narrow dental arches
  • Overbite or underbite
  • Open bite or crossbite
  • Spaces between teeth

The Treatment Process

Invisalign accomplishes teeth straightening through a series of custom teeth aligners that gradually move teeth into proper alignment. To begin the process, we will use iTero technology to take digital impressions of your teeth, which will be used by the Invisalign lab to create your mouth trays from a clear, comfortable material. Once they are ready, we will have you return to our office to receive your aligners, along with instructions for use and care. You need to wear your aligners for 20 – 22 hours every day, ideally removing them only before eating or brushing and flossing. You will move to the next set of aligners every 1 – 2 weeks as they gently shift your teeth into their proper position.

After Orthodontic Treatment

Our team will help you schedule orthodontic visits at our practice every other month so our Invisalign dentists can track your tooth movement. While every individual case is different, Invisalign treatment generally lasts from six months to two years on average. When your teeth reach ideal alignment, it is important to keep them from moving back to their former locations. We will then take another impression and have Invisalign Vivera® retainers made for you of the same clear material. Wear and care instructions for your retainers will also be given to you. Our dentists will monitor your teeth alignment and bite during routine dental exams at ACE Dental of Temple.

Is Invisalign Covered by Insurance?

A portion of Invisalign orthodontic treatment may be covered under some dental insurance plans. Our team will review your benefits with your provider and let you know of any remaining costs. ACE Dental of Temple offers several affordable forms of payment if you are not using insurance. During your Invisalign consultation, we can discuss your out-of-pocket costs and how our office can help to make your treatment more affordable with payment plans and medical financing.
