Dr. Scott Elder can consult with you to determine whether InvisalignⓇ is right for you. Call us today to schedule a consultation or to ask us any questions you may have about Invisalign – (801) 278-7100.
What Is InvisalignⓇ?
InvisalignⓇ is a treatment that involves wearing clear, flexible plastic aligners to straighten your teeth over time. They are made of a patented thermoplastic material called SmartTrackⓇ that fit over your teeth.
This treatment is good for orthodontic problems, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Overbites, underbites, or crossbites
- Gaps in teeth
- Open bites
- Other small correction to straighten teeth
Since InvisalignⓇ is clear and removable, many teens and adults prefer this treatment over traditional braces and wires that are visible and semi-permanent.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Invisalign is comparable to braces and may be partially insured if you have dental insurance. When you schedule your consultation with Dr. Elder, we will provide you with an estimate once we analyze your individual case. There are many variables that will have an impact on the final cost of your treatment.
What Is The InvisalignⓇ Treatment Process Like?
During your first consultation with Dr. Elder, he will take X-rays and assess your overall oral health. Then, he will use an iTero ElementⓇ scanner to take a painless 3D digital scan of your teeth. This will be used to map out your custom plan for your InvisalignⓇ treatment.
Once your scan is processed, your custom aligners are made. You will have a follow-up appointment with Dr. Elder to ensure that your aligners fit snug against your teeth and are comfortable for you to wear.
Next, you will be expected to wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours each day for the best results. You will receive multiple sets of aligners and will need to wear them for the prescribed amount of time before switching to the next set. Each time you pick up a set of aligners from our office, Dr. Elder will check your progress.
How Do I Take Care Of My InvisalignⓇ Aligners?
Caring for your aligners is much like taking care of the traditional retainers. Rinse your aligners at night and before wearing and brush them with a soft toothbrush. You will be given an InvisalignⓇ cleaning system to keep your set clear.
After your InvisalignⓇ aligners are in, you won’t need to wait to eat or drink. You may feel some pressure and soreness each time you switch to new aligners, but you may take ibuprofen and apply ice to the area to alleviate any pain.
Continue to practice good oral hygiene which includes brushing and flossing your teeth.

“I have a phobia about the dentist. I was so impressed with this place for a first-time visit. They came highly recommended and really took care of me. I couldn’t be happier with my experience. I definitely recommend anyone looking for a dentist to give them a try.”
