A Clear Alternative to Braces
Invisalign is a new, state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment. Clear aligners are used to straighten teeth and correct other common orthodontic issues. Dr. Perry commonly utilizes Invisalign to treat crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, and gaps in the teeth. With two decades of continuous innovation, and more than 8 million treatments performed successfully worldwide, Invisalign is known as the most popular way to improve your smile.
The Invisalign before and after pictures show the results achieved from actual patients near Patchogue, NY. As with all cosmetic dentistry, patient results will vary.* However, each patient seen achieves a smile transformation with the revolutionary orthodontic treatment. During a consultation at Harbor Family Orthodontics, Dr. Perry Iacovetti assesses your case and listens to your aesthetic teeth concerns. He then customizes your Invisalign® treatment to fit your specific needs.
The Invisalign invisible aligners involve two steps. First, you have your consultation with Dr. Perry, a certified Top 1% Diamond Invisalign Orthodontist. During this consultation, your dentist takes a precise 3D digital scan of your teeth using an iTero Element® scanner. After this, the dentist uses the sophisticated ClinCheck software perfect for customizing a plan that shapes your new smile, specific to your needs and aesthetic goals.
Once your plan is in place, the custom clear aligners are constructed at Invisalign’s 3D printing facility. At your first fitting, your dentist checks the aligners to ensure they are precise and comfortable.
Each aligner set is slightly different from the previous pair. Each provides a custom fit to move your teeth into place gently. You visit your dentist for an in-person checkup at regularly prescribed intervals to assess your progress and receive the next batch of aligners.
Once you complete your teeth straightening plan, you can wear a retainer. This retainer preserves your newly positioned teeth to ensure your picture-perfect smile lasts.
In addition, Invisalign corrects or straightens both baby teeth and adult teeth. This is why invisible braces are great solutions for kids, teens, and adults.
Invisalign’s braces are constructed of a thin, clear, flexible plastic called SmartTrack® (a patented thermoplastic material created specifically for this treatment). This aligner has FDA approval and contains no BPA, BPS, gluten, or latex.
At Harbor Family Orthodontics, Invisalign costs exactly the same as traditional braces. We want our patients to make the best choice for them. However, there are additional ways to save on the cost of clear aligners. This includes dental insurance, paying with pre-tax dollars from your Health Savings Account (HAS,) and Invisalign specials. When you come in for a free consultation with Harbor Family Orthodontics, Invisalign prices are discussed in detail. In addition, we offer in-office payment plans with 0% interest to ensure our patients can receive affordable Invisalign treatment.
When searching for the best place to receive Invisalign treatment on Long Island, New York, patients select Dr. Perry Iacovetti of Harbor Family Orthodontics in East Patchogue. Dr. Perry is proud to be an Invisalign Diamond provider in 2022. His Diamond status means he is in the top 1% in the country for performing successful Invisalign treatments. When you select Dr. Perry for your clear braces, you receive top-notch care from a prestigious Invisalign dentist.
Most dental insurance will cover Invisalign, at least in part. Invisalign is considered an orthodontic device just like metal braces. Before your free consultation, we will contact your insurance provider to understand what your Insurance will cover.
Invisalign cost really depends on a case by case basis. We recommend visiting Harbor Family Orthodontics for a free consultation to get a better understanding. We do NOT charge more for Invisalign vs. traditional braces because we want all our patients to get the best treatment for them, without price as a factor. We also offer 0% financing.
Rinsing your aligners right after you take them off is the best way to clean your aligners while avoiding bacterial accumulation. You can also brush the aligners to give them a more thorough clean. Some people also use cleaning crystals which remove plaque in minutes. To learn more about cleaning crystals check out our blog.
Invisalign attachments, also known as Invisalign SmartForce attachments, are tiny pieces of dental bonding material which apply additional force to help focus the patient’s treatment plan while better controlling teeth movement. The attachments are nearly invisible. Feel free to learn more about attachments on our blog.
When your treatment is complete you are given an Invisalign Vivera retainer, which is also clear. As with the aligners, you’ll wear the retainer nearly full time at first but will gradually taper your retainer wear time. Eventually, you’ll wear the retainer only while sleeping.
It can vary from one patient to another, based on the complexity of the case and your specific bite problems. The average wear time is around 12-18 month.
You should always remove Invisalign when you eat and drink as food and liquid can stain or damage your aligners while chewing.
