Clear aligners covering a lower arch of teeth

Invisalign

Orthodontic treatments can straighten crooked teeth, but traditional metal braces are bulky and uncomfortable. 

Invisalign® treatment is a virtually invisible alternative to braces that is comfortable, discreet, and simplified.

Clear aligners covering a lower arch of teeth

The Advantages of Invisalign

A Discreet Option

Invisalign is an effective orthodontic solution that uses a series of removable clear aligner trays - rather than unsightly metal hardware - to gradually shift teeth into their proper positions.

Greater Comfort

The aligner trays are custom-crafted from smooth BPA-free plastic to fit your smile. This offers patients a more comfortable alternative to metal braces, which frequently irritate the soft tissues of the mouth.

Easy Daily Care & No Food Restrictions

Since the aligner trays are removable, patients who choose this solution can brush and floss normally, and no foods are off-limits.

Invisalign Express and Invisalign Teen

There are some exciting variations on this treatment that can make it an excellent fit for patients with very minor misalignment, as well as for younger patients who can benefit from helpful reminders about compliance.

If you want to correct slight imperfections in the alignment of your most visible teeth, you may be eligible for Invisalign Express. If you are getting ready for a big event such as a wedding or graduation, this option can be a great way to achieve a very real and very powerful upgrade in your appearance in just 10 to 20 weeks.

Another specialized option is Invisalign Teen, which is designed specifically for adolescents. Each aligner tray has a blue dot that gradually fades, indicating whether the patient is wearing the aligner for the prescribed amount of time each day. The treatment also includes replacement mouthpieces in case some become lost over the course of treatment.

The Treatment Timeline

Candidacy Consultation

Dr. Bixby will evaluate your case. If he determines that you are a candidate for Invisalign treatment, he will take a digital impression of your teeth and bite alignment.

Planning Your Treatment

Dr. Bixby will create a treatment plan to gradually bring your bite into proper alignment.

Aligner Production

Fabrication of the custom orthodontic aligner trays can take about three weeks. Each individual aligner will be crafted to bring your bite closer to proper alignment.

Begin Treatment

After returning to our Red Bank, NJ, practice to receive your aligners, you will need to wear each one for 20 to 22 hours per day. You will switch to the next aligner tray in the series every one to two weeks.

Check-Ups

About every six weeks, you will visit your dentist so he can monitor your progress. 

Final Results

Patients who follow treatment guidelines should achieve their desired end results within 12 to 18 months. You can maintain your beautiful new smile by wearing your last aligner or a custom retainer at night.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

For a comprehensive case, you can expect treatment to cost approximately $5,000 at our practice. Longer treatments are going to cost more, as they require more trays and more check-ups with our Red Bank, NJ, dentist serving Monmouth County. 

Our practice is a preferred provider with Delta Dental and Aetna, and we work with many insurance plans. We also accept CareCredit® and Chase Health Advance financing options to help patients afford the Invisalign system.

Achieve a Straight Smile

Dr. Bixby has dedicated himself to neuromuscular dentistry and remained focused on how all aspects of your smile work together to achieve health and an attractive appearance. While orthodontic treatment is most widely known for its cosmetic benefits, properly spaced and aligned teeth are beneficial for a number of reasons, especially when a dentist like Dr. Bixby coordinates your treatment.

A properly aligned smile makes brushing and flossing easier, which reduces the risk of cavities and gum disease. Meanwhile, optimizing the alignment of your bite can also help you avoid developing TMJ disorder

The good news is that bulky metal braces are no longer your only choice when it comes to achieving a smile that is not only more attractive, but also easier to maintain. To find out whether you are a candidate for Invisalign treatment, schedule a consultation at our Red Bank, NJ, practice today by contacting us online, or by calling:

Your Role in Achieving Your Goals

For treatment to be successful, it is necessary to follow the guidelines provided by your dentist. Wearing the clear aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day allows the treatment system to achieve the necessary tooth movements. By committing to these requirements, you can be sure that your treatment timeline will proceed as planned.

Once you have completed treatment using your custom series of aligners, it is recommended that you wear your final set overnight each night to maintain the improved positions of your teeth. You can also choose to have a custom retainer made.
