As an Invisalign Elite provider Dr. Brandon Boggan is among the top 1% of Invisalign specialists and, averaging more than 100 Invisalign cases per year, he handles the highest volume of cases in the state of Alabama. Dr. Boggan and his staff stealthily adjust disordered grills by slipping patients clear Invisalign aligners. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers by relying on advanced 3-D computer graphics to aid in the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of the patient’s mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $4,000–$6,000). View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Wearers only remove aligners when eating, brushing, flossing, or grinding Tic Tacs into toothpaste. In the event that a patient is not a good candidate for Invisalign, the $1,500 credit can be applied toward traditional braces.
