Trusted Professionals Providing Invisalign in Baton Rouge

Are you self-conscious about gapped, crooked, or misaligned teeth? Do you dread the idea of braces? Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces. Having straight teeth will not only boost your confidence and attractiveness, but it will improve your oral health too.

The Benefits Of Straight Teeth Are More Than Just A Pretty Smile

Did you know that misaligned teeth can lead to oral health problems? It’s true. Teeth that are crooked or crowded, along with any bite issues that are left uncorrected can make oral care and hygiene difficult.

Misaligned teeth and improper bites can sometimes lead to:

What Is Invisalign?

Sometimes called “Invisible braces” or “clear braces”, dentists and orthodontists commonly call them “clear aligners”. Clear Aligners are a technological advancement that has made orthodontic treatment less obvious while moving teeth and aligning jaws to create a healthy, beautiful smile.

Invisalign treatment consists of a series of plastic aligners created using initial impressions or digital scans of your teeth as the starting point. The aligners are plastic replicas of your teeth. Wearing them puts gentle pressure on the teeth, ever-so-slightly repositioning them over time. Each set of aligners is worn for a week or two before going to the next set. Over time, teeth reach their ideal clinical alignment.

What Are Attachments?

Some patients need to wear attachments or ridges in order to ensure that their teeth move into place perfectly. An attachment is a clear bump that is made of an enamel-colored composite and secured to the teeth. Bumps on your aligners will grip them in order to hold the aligner in place. Ridges work in a similar way only an indent is created instead of a raised bump. This can be necessary for more complicated cases to ensure that a particular tooth, or several teeth, move into place like they should.

Schedule a Consultation

Organize a consultation with Dr. Luong or Dr. Nguyen will take a 3D impression of your smile. This will outline your treatment plan and give you an estimated timeline and cost. You’ll also get to see what your smile could look like.

Wear Your Aligners

Based on the customized treatment plan developed for you by our doctors, a series of custom-made, clear aligners will be fabricated. These aligners are made of smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that is comfortable to wear. Simply wear them throughout the day and remove them to eat or brush and floss your teeth.

As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. You’ll receive a few sets of aligners at each checkup, roughly every 6-8 weeks. You’ll wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day, switching to the next set every 1-2 weeks.

Reveal Your Smile

Once you’re happy with your new smile, you’ll complete treatment and receive a retainer to keep your straight smile for life. We can also discuss more ways to boost your smile, like teeth whitening.

How Long Will I Be In Treatment For?

For most patients living in the Baton Rouge area, treatment can take around eight to twelve months. The exact timeframe will depend on your situation, and only our team can tell you how long they will need to be worn. Overall, the treatment time can be less than with metal braces. This is in part because you do not have to schedule appointments to keep your teeth moving. Simply pull out a new aligner.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

There are many factors that determine the cost of your Invisalign treatment:

  • how extensive the issues you want to be corrected,
  • how long your treatment plan will last,
  • and the specific treatment details prescribed by your doctor.

Since Invisalign aligners are custom-made, the cost will vary per patient. At Elements Dental Spa – Baton Rouge Dentist & Aesthetics Spa, we strive to make Invisalign affordable to everyone! Payment options for Invisalign typically include flexible, affordable payment plans, or financing through CareCredit, a financing program designed for healthcare services so patients can get the treatment they need without worrying about the cost.
