$2,475 for Complete Invisalign Treatment ($4,950 Value)
Invisalign straightens teeth with a series of clear, removable custom aligners. The process begins at the dentist’s office, where, during an initial exam, the doctor snaps x-rays and takes impressions of the upper and lower teeth. In the Invisalign lab, technicians craft a set of up to 48 transparent aligners made to the patient’s exact specifications. Patients wear the removable aligners for 6–18 months, changing them every two weeks and only removing them while eating, brushing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
Throughout the treatment, patients return to the dentist's office for routine checkups to ensure teeth continue to shift into their proper places. Read the Invisalign FAQs here.
A Shop For Smiles
A Shop For Smiles’ Dr. Richard Hagstrom cares not only for his patients, but also for his community and the environment. All of his in-office procedures are designed with the patient's comfort in mind. As a charter member of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS), he specializes in treating clients who suffer from dental anxiety.
Reaching out beyond his practice’s patients, he donates services to raise money for charitable children's organizations via the Smiles for Life Foundation, and has sponsored a Little League baseball team for kids with disabilities. He has traveled as far as the Dominican Republic to tend to teeth in need.
He and his team understand that their practices can have a greater impact on the earth, so they maintain eco-friendly practices such as recycling printer cartridges and keeping water-compressor switches in the "off" position.
In keeping with the commitment to Mother Nature, the office is decorated with a surf-shop theme, featuring a miniature boogie board, a wooden coconut tree, and chairs whose intricately woven, white dental-floss patterns look a lot like wicker.
