Dr. Kelly now offers Invisalign treatment as an
alternative to braces. Invisalign can achieve mild to moderate tooth movements
without braces in less time and at lower cost than traditional braces.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, acrylic tooth aligners to reposition the
teeth. The aligners are worn continuously except when eating or brushing
and guide the teeth into a new position. After about two weeks, a new
aligner is worn to further guide the teeth into position. The number of
aligners needed depends on the amount of tooth movement needed. The
aligners are very difficult for others to see while they are being worn and are
very comfortable. The Invisalign process is generally faster than
traditional braces - usually tooth alignment is achieved in 8-12 months.
Invisalign will usually cost less than traditional braces as well. Our
office generally charges between $4500 and $5500 for Invisalign depending on the
number of aligners needed. Braces usually cost $6000 to $7500.
