Invisalign – Arundel, ME
The Clear Path to a Straight Smile
It’s well-known that crooked, spaced out, and otherwise misaligned teeth can make smiling confidently, chewing properly, and enunciating clearly quite difficult. Despite this, many patients are hesitant to pursue orthodontic care for one reason: they don’t want to wear metal brackets and wires. The good news is that you may not have to! Invisalign was designed to deliver the same beautiful results with see-through, virtually undetectable aligners. To learn more, read on or schedule an appointment with our Arundel cosmetic dentist!

How Invisalign Works
First, you’ll meet with our dedicated dentist, Dr. KwonDuk Jung, so he can determine if you’re a candidate for Invisalign. If you are, then he will use the scans of your teeth to create a custom series of clear aligners. You’ll wear each set for 7-14 days, which will give your teeth enough time to move a step closer to their ideal positions. Remember, wearing your trays for 22 hours a day is important too – if you don’t wear them, they won’t work!
Indications for Invisalign
In addition to being comfortable and clear, Invisalign is also quite versatile! To date, it’s helped more than 12 million patients with the below orthodontic problems:
If your teeth overlap, then it’s harder for your toothbrush and floss to effectively remove food particles and plaque. Fortunately, clear aligners can place just enough pressure on your teeth to guide them comfortably into their ideal positions, improving the look and health of your smile in the process.
Gaps Between Teeth
Since gapped teeth also increase your chances of developing serious oral health problems, like tooth decay, investing in Invisalign can improve more than just your confidence. Plus, you’ll be able to watch the entire transformation process because the aligners are clear and removable!
If your bite isn’t aligned properly, you’re at an increased risk of premature wear as well as TMJ dysfunction. With the clear aligners and other orthodontic tools, like rubber bands, we can create a custom treatment plan to address your underbite, overbite, or crossbite.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Previously, we touched on the fact that more than 12 million patients around the world have chosen Invisalign. Why? Well, here are a few reasons:
- The aligners are see-through, making them hard to detect
- The average treatment timeline is only 12-18 months
- The aligners are removable, which means no complicated oral hygiene regimens
- There aren’t any dietary restrictions
- There are fewer check-in visits
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Many patients are surprised to learn that there isn’t a flat fee for Invisalign. The reason why is that each treatment plan is custom-made! In order to provide you with a price estimate, we need to learn more about your unique dental needs, like if we need to straighten both arches of teeth and if any additional orthodontic accessories are needed. Don’t worry – we will provide you with a number at your consultation and review all of the financial solutions available to you, like CareCredit.
