- $549 for $2,000 toward Invisalign services
Invisalign straightens teeth with a series of clear, removable, and custom aligners. The process begins at the dentist’s office, where, during an initial consultation, the doctor recommends Comprehensive or Express treatment, or determines that the patient is not eligible at all. Comprehensive treatment costs an additional $3,400 and Express treatment costs an additional $2,400.
If the patient continues with treatment, the doctor gathers records—such as x-rays and impressions of the upper and lower teeth—which are then submitted to Invisalign. In the Invisalign lab, technicians craft a set of up to 48 transparent aligners made to the patient’s exact specifications and makes the final determination on Express or Comprehensive treatment. Patients wear the removable aligners for 6–18 months, changing them every two weeks and only removing them while eating or brushing.
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.
At Premier Dental, Dr. Saghatchi and his staff help safeguard smiles with the latest dental technology. To keep mouths free of disease, the team employs digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, which can provide an in-depth look at tooth health without exposing patients to unnecessarily-high doses of radiation. Meanwhile, soft tissue lasers take the place of traditional drills during procedures like gum surgery or wisdom tooth removal, helping to keep clients comfortable and relaxed and resulting in less swelling and pain. For patients who are particularly anxious, the office can also offer sedation therapy, which can include nitrous oxide, general anesthetic, oral sedatives, or telling boring, long-winded stories until the patient falls asleep. In addition to providing general dentistry services, Premier Dental is also a certified Invisalign provider, and can provide periodontal treatment as well as cosmetic services such as implants and teeth whitening.
