5-Star Reviews "I Have Perfectly Straight Teeth"

I've been a patient here for a few years. Before meeting Dr Thompson I was told I wasn't a candidate for Invisalign. Now, thanks to him I have perfectly straight teeth. The office is very clean and you can tell they pay attention to providing a sanitary environment (I admit, I'm a germ o phobe). Even the office staff is fantastic- especially Jennifer.

I went to Imagecare and Dr Thompson because I was interested in Invisalign invisible braces.  The experience was top-notch! I would highly recommend him and the Invisialign braces!

But does it really work?

Invisalign Produces Great Results

By applying gentle pressure to the teeth, the aligners gradually shift your smile into alignment just like traditional braces. Actually, Invisalign treatment can sometimes produce results even more quickly than braces.

The Typical Invisalign Timeline

If you wear your trays as directed, you should see your desired results within 12 to 18 months.
If you wear your trays as directed, you should see your desired results within 12 to 18 months.

Consultation

If you are interested in any kind of orthodontic treatment, schedule a consultation at our office in Plano, TX. During your consultation, one of our certified providers will assess the condition of your smile to determine whether Invisalign treatment is recommended. More than 80 percent of the cases we see qualify. If we do not think aligners are the right choice for you, we will discuss alternative options. 

Scanning

During your consultation, we will use our sophisticated iTero® Element scanner to capture digital images of your teeth. This allows us to more precisely meet your unique needs.

Planning

With the scans of your bite in hand, our dentists will design a custom treatment plan that helps you achieve a straighter smile. Our doctors have advanced training in occlusion, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, and aesthetics to ensure that virtually every aspect of your smile is addressed through orthodontic treatment.

Fabrication

If you are happy with your proposed treatment plan, we will send it to the Invisalign lab. There, your custom aligners will be fabricated by skilled technicians over the next few weeks. Your aligners will be precisely laser-cut to minimize irritation to your soft tissues.

Start Treatment

Once you receive your aligners, you are able to begin your treatment. For the best results, you need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours every day. You will switch from one aligner to the next in your series approximately every two weeks. Each aligner tray moves you closer and closer to your final results.

Check-Ups

Approximately every four to eight weeks, you will visit our office in Plano, TX, so we can evaluate your progress. The frequency of these appointments is much less burdensome than those of traditional braces, which usually need to be adjusted every month. Also, unlike braces, Invisalign treatment will not require emergency visits to fix broken wires or brackets.

Final Results

If you wear your trays as directed, you should see your desired results within 12 to 18 months. Patients who qualify for Express treatment may have an even shorter timeline. To maintain your results, we recommend you wear a custom retainer or your last aligner each night. At our Plano practice, retainers are included in your treatment.

​Your Teeth Could Be Straightened in One Year or Less Ready to Get Started?

Thanks to the innovation of Invisalign aligners, you can straighten your teeth faster than ever before. However, you can't be done with treatment until you start treatment. If Invisalign treatment is interesting to you, we highly encourage you to schedule a free consultation with Imagecare Dental Group in Plano, TX.

At your consultation, our certified Invisalign providers will examine your bite to determine your candidacy for orthodontic treatment. If you qualify for orthodontics with clear aligners, we will get your treatment timeline started as soon as possible.

What Is Invisalign Express?

There are two forms of Invisalign treatment: Express and Regular. Express simply means your case is less intensive and will only need 10 aligners or less (and less time overall) to make the necessary corrections.

The express method is ideal for patients who only have minor misalignment. Using this approach, plastic aligners can shift your teeth into optimal position in six months or less. Our experienced dentists are experts at determining which treatment method is best for each patient, and they will let you know during your consultation if Express is a viable option for you.

Also, because the cost of Invisalign is directly correlated to the amount of aligners required in the treatment plan, express treatment will cost less than regular treatment.

Can we talk more about Invisalign cost?

We Make Invisalign Affordable

Invisalign is a smart investment.

Misaligned teeth can lead to a host of oral health and function issues. Because crooked teeth are harder to clean, tooth decay and infections become more likely. Also, bite misalignment puts unnatural pressure on the jaw muscles, which can lead to painful TMJ disorder. By investing in orthodontics now, you can save yourself pain and thousands of dollars in future dental work.

Invisalign costs the same as traditional braces.

The cost of clear aligners is comparable to that of braces. If you are on the fence between plastic aligners and braces, don't let cost be a difference-maker. Qualifying patients might as well choose the orthodontic option that is more discreet, more comfortable, and more convenient.

Financing can make treatment only $99 a month.

If you have dental insurance, it may cover a portion of your orthodontic treatment. Our office can assist you with filing and ensuring you get the most out of your benefits. To cover any out-of-pocket costs, we can also help you finance your treatment with CareCredit® or LendingClub. By taking advantage of all of our helpful payment options, many patients are able to go through Invisalign treatment at our practice for as little as $99 a month.

We Offer Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen is a clear-aligner system designed with teenagers in mind. This system includes special accommodations for teens, including:

  • A special blue dot on the back of the aligners which allows our dentists to track if the aligners are being worn enough
  • A special design that leaves room for permanent molars to come in
  • Up to six free replacement aligners

The teenage years are a great time to go through orthodontic treatment, but self-conscious teens usually aren't excited about unsightly braces. This option allows them to straighten their smiles while staying confident in their appearance.

Do I really need to straighten my teeth?
 

Why Orthodontic Treatment Is Important

Fact #1: Crooked teeth aren’t just a cosmetic problem

A number of underlying issues can cause crooked teeth. Some of the major ones are:

  • Over Crowding
  • Wide Spacing
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite
  • Underbite

Left unchecked, these issues can lead to many other health problems that can affect your speech and chewing, as well as increase your chances of periodontal disease (swollen gums and redness) and dental decay. In contrast, straighter teeth can allow the gums to fit more tightly and comfortably, reducing the risk of periodontal disease. Also, when your teeth are not aligned properly, it can put stress on the jawbone and joints, leading to more potential problems down the road.

Fact #2: Crooked teeth aren’t just a physical problem

No one likes to look in the mirror when they know their teeth aren’t straight.

When crooked teeth aren’t corrected, it can affect people’s emotional state – even to the point they can appear unfriendly to others – simply because they become too self-conscious and embarrassed to smile.

If you are an adult, you may have developed ways to try to cope with this discomfort so it doesn’t hold you back in your personal or professional life. For example, when you smile you might not show your teeth and try to cover them with your lips. Or maybe you don’t smile at all.

Any of these tactics can unconsciously send messages to the people around us that suggest:

“I’m not very happy.”

“I’m not fun to be around.”

“I’m reserved and boring.”

Without our knowing it, we can be sabotaging our relationship efforts. This is a huge problem since almost everything we do involves relationships somehow.

Teens may have other, more immature, ways of acting out their self-consciousness which parents and teachers may not recognize.

Fact #3: Traditional braces don’t solve these problems

In fact, they can seemingly make it worse...

Invisalign Aligners vs. Braces

Clear Aligners Braces
Appearance Plastic aligners are transparent and difficult to detect when worn. Because they can be removed, food should never get stuck in aligners. Braces are made of bulky, dark metal that makes many patients feel self-conscious about their smiles. Also, food often gets trapped in the brackets, which can be unsightly and cause bad breath.
Comfort Invisalign aligners are made from soft plastic that fits snugly over the teeth and does not poke or scratch the soft tissues of the mouth. Patients with braces often complain that the wires and brackets poke or scratch the cheeks, hurt the tongue, or cause puffy, irritated gums.
Convenience Because aligners are removable, you can brush and floss normally and continue to eat all of your favorite foods. Patients with braces need to adjust their oral hygiene habits to properly brush and floss around the wires and brackets. Also, patients need to avoid crunchy, sticky, and other types of food.
Effectiveness Invisalign aligners apply gentle pressure to your teeth to move them into position in an average of 12 to 18 months. Traditional braces apply pressure to teeth to move them into position in an average of 16 to 24 months.
