What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a teeth correction system that isn’t like any other method you’ve seen in the past. It uses removable plastic aligners instead of traditional metal brackets and wires. It provides a heap of benefits to patients because of its design.
Though they are not totally invisible braces, the clear aligners appear nearly invisible compared to traditional braces — and are more comfortable. Using current 3D computer technology, each of your aligners is custom made for your teeth. This method gently and gradually moves your teeth until your treatment is complete and you have a beautiful, straight, healthy smile. We have completed specialty certification in Invisalign treatment and are among the leading practitioners in aligner treatment in Oklahoma.
The Invisalign process for teens is the same as the process for adults; however, the features of the aligners are enhanced. The teen aligners include a blue wear indicator that changes from blue to clear to help monitor wear time, and the aligners are designed to accommodate new teeth and molar growth. Plus, we include limited replacement aligners in case your teen loses or misplaces theirs. It’s important to know that not all teens are good candidates for aligners. Dr. Birdwell will help your family decide the best care option.
“Orthodontics” no longer means ‘braces’ to achieve a healthy, beautiful smile, thanks to the variety of technologies available.

Invisalign Treatment Benefits
The aligner system can benefit you in many ways. For one, it can give you the discretion you desire while you receive treatment. The aligners are crafted of a transparent plastic material, which means that no one can see them on you. There will be no need to feel uncomfortable in social situations and your teen won’t need to avoid taking high-school pictures.
Secondly, the plastic design makes the aligners more comfortable in your mouth than some of the conventional devices. Patients have fewer complaints about tightness and abrasiveness. Lastly, the aligners are completely removable. You’ll only have to wear them for 22 hours each day. You can remove them whenever you need to eat, drink, or clean your teeth. That will give you an advantage when it comes to dental hygiene.
Using the plastic aligner system can significantly reduce your treatment time, as well. Some patients have completed their treatment in as few as 18 months or less.
The Cost of Invisalign
The cost of Invisalign can vary depending on your location, the degree of the malocclusion, and your payment method. Our orthodontists accept a wide variety of payment methods, and our finance team dedicates itself to making payment affordable and hassle-free.
