What is Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment uses a series of removable, comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to improve your smile without impacting your day-to-day life. Clear aligners gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. Each set of Invisalign aligners is custom-made for your teeth, ensuring maximum comfort and effectiveness.

Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven as effective at tooth movement as traditional metal dental braces.

Why choose Invisalign?

Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are easily removable, so you can eat and drink what you want and brush or floss as needed. They are also comfortable, with no irritating metal used during treatment. This means that you will spend less time with Dr. Payne in his Sacramento, CA office getting adjustments.

  • Discreet: Invisalign’s clear aligners are nearly invisible, meaning you can straighten your teeth without anyone noticing.

  • Removable: You can easily remove the aligners for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.

  • Comfortable: Invisalign aligners are made from smooth, flexible plastic, making them more comfortable than traditional metal braces.

  • Efficient: With Invisalign, you’ll typically spend less time in the doctor’s office, as they require fewer adjustments.

How Much Does Invisalign Treatment Cost?

The cost of Invisalign treatment depends on how difficult it is to straighten your teeth. American River Orthodontics offers a free consultation so Dr. Payne can evaluate the complexity of your treatment and his team can find out what orthodontic benefits you may have on your dental insurance plan. With this information, the team can give you many payment options to make sure it’s as affordable as possible for you.

How Long will Invisalign Treatment Take?

During treatment, you’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your Invisalign treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically requires from nine to 15 months. The number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both estimates will vary from one person to another.
