- $2,799 for a complete Invisalign treatment and take-home whitening kit ($6,000 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, certified Invisalign provider Dr. Loren Taple snaps x-rays and photos, and takes impressions of the upper and lower teeth. In the Invisalign lab, technicians craft a set of transparent aligners made to the patient’s exact specifications. Patients wear the removable aligners, changing them every two weeks and only removing them while eating and brushing.
Throughout the treatment, patients return to the dentist's office for routine checkups to ensure the teeth continue to shift into their proper places. Read the Invisalign FAQs here.
Dr. Loren Taple's passion for dentistry is almost single-minded. Even after founding Northwood Dental, he served as an adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and in leadership positions of several dental organizations. In 2004, the Minnesota Dental Association even crowned him the Humanitarian of the Year Award for his charitable dentistry practices both domestically and abroad. So it's hardly a surprise that Dr. Taple knows his stuff. While supplying preventative, cosmetic, and implant services with his staff and board-certified periodontist Dr. Ed Rajek, he ensures oral health with a deftness that can only come from a lifetime of experience.
