How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is an advanced orthodontic treatment that uses transparent aligners to gradually shift the teeth into better alignment. The trays are custom manufactured using advanced digital technology that maps the position of your teeth in great detail. Each tray is numbered, and designed to progressively straighten the dental arches over time. Once complete, you will be given a special retainer to wear at night to maintain your results, which can last a lifetime with proper care
Like all good things, orthodontics take time. However, with Invisalign, you do not need to feel embarrassed about your smile throughout treatment. Dr. Nordhus can help you transform your appearance and self-confidence with this discreet orthodontic system.

The Benefits of Invisalign  Revolutionizing Orthodontic Treatment

Greater Comfort

Traditional braces rely on metal brackets that use wire to hold teeth together. With an aligner, you can distribute gentle pressure evenly over the surface of a tooth. The resulting treatment is much more comfortable and pleasant.

Safer Treatment

Patients who play contact sports or lead particularly active lifestyles may find Invisalign to be safer than braces. The aligners lay flush along the surface of your teeth so you do not run the risk of cutting the inside of your mouth. Patients can perform at their best without worrying about potential injury. 

Photo-Friendly Progress

It can be daunting to commit to years in braces, especially in our photogenic culture where photos and selfies are an omnipresent part of daily life. While traditional orthodontics can be embarrassing for teens and adults alike, Invisalign is virtually undetectable, giving you the confidence to correct a crooked smile. 

Patented Excellence

Invisalign leads the clear aligner industry in terms of reliability using their patented SmartTrack material gently but effectively shifts the position of teeth. The system continues to be so popular due to its reliability and consistently successful results.

No Dietary Restrictions

While traditional braces restrict patients from eating certain sweet and sticky foods, Invisalign allows patients to undergo treatment without dietary restrictions. Patients have the freedom to remove their aligner trays while eating and continue to enjoy all their favorite foods.

Invisalign treatments can be enjoyed by all age groups. In fact, many of our patients who undergo this cosmetic treatment at our practice are teenagers or senior citizens. 

Invisalign Teen Ensuring Accountability and Stunning Results

If you have a teenager, you might worry about them consistently wearing their aligners. Fortunately, we offer Invisalign Teen® to help hold younger patients accountable for proper use. The state-of-the-art aligner system has a built-in button that tells parents if the teenager has worn the trays for the required 22 hours per day.

While this system is a great way to track consistent use in younger patients, people of all ages can benefit from monitoring the time they spend in their aligners to ensure proper treatment and accurate results.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

The cost of Invisalign is similar to the cost of traditional braces. On average, the price of treatment typically falls between $3,000 and $5,000, depending on the complexity and extent of your orthodontic issues.

However, those figures are not necessarily what you will pay out-of-pocket. Some dental insurance plans do cover parts of treatment the same as braces. Meanwhile, any remaining expenses can be easily managed with low to interest-free plans through CareCredit.

Schedule Your Free Consultation Today!

Invisalign is a highly customized procedure, meaning the cost can vary significantly from one patient to the next. In order to get an accurate personal estimate, Dr. Nordhus will need to first examine your smile and design your treatment plan. Our friendly team will be happy to discuss your orthodontic options and help you coordinate a payment plan that works within your budget.

There is no downside to scheduling a free consultation at our Wichita office. If you are ready to enjoy the proven results of Invisalign, contact us online or give us a call at:

Digital Imaging

If Invisalign seems like the right fit for you, Dr. Nordhus will schedule a time for you to visit our Wichita dental practice. During your first visit, a digital image or mold of your smile will be made. The impression will be used to manufacture your custom clear aligners.

Receiving Aligners

After a few weeks, your aligner trays will arrive at our office. You will need to make periodic visits to our office so that we can check up on your progress.

Daily Wear

It is important that patients adhere to the 22-hour compliance rule while maintaining good oral hygiene habits. Failure to wear the trays for 22 hours a day may lead to an extended treatment time or less than perfect results. 

Retaining Your Results

When you have completed your orthodontic treatment, you will be given a custom retainer that should be worn every night. The best way to maintain your cosmetic results is to schedule twice-a-year visits to our dental practice while maintaining good oral hygiene habits like brushing and flossing regularly.

Are there any risks associated with Invisalign?

Treatment Is Safe and Effective

Under the professional guidance of Dr. Nordhus, clear aligner treatments are completely safe. We highly discourage patients from using DIY or mail-order orthodontic treatments, which do not come with the benefit of oversight from a trained dentist. 

Side effects are rare. Some patients may experience slight discomfort in the hours after placing a new aligner tray. To avoid unnecessary discomfort, we recommend placing new trays before bed so you can "sleep off" the feeling of oral pressure. 

Overall, with proper use Invisalign is very successful and can even be safer than traditional wires and braces for patients with certain lifestyles.

Dr. Byron Nordhus and his team are excellent communicators. They routinely tell you what they are doing and why. Often, Dr. Nordhus calls personally to follow-up with me a day or two after dental work. They appear to have up-to-date dental equipment. Their schedule seems to have some padding in it allowing them to provide friendly, personal service; they don't rush to complete your procedure and start the next one. Of course, this level of service costs more to provide, and their prices do seem to be slightly higher than my previous dentist. Overall very pleased.

Nordhus Dentistry is, by far, the absolute best at what they do! Everyone on their staff is very personable and does a wonderful job explaining procedures and setting expectations. I have a child that ALWAYS had a great deal of anxiety about dental appointments ... but not at Nordhus! Not only have they come alongside him to give him support through teeth removal, x-rays and cleanings, but Dr. Nordhus has personally called us the next day to see how we're doing after our visit. THAT'S CUSTOMER SERVICE! In my son's own words ... "I like them. They're really nice." Music to a mama's ears!
