The Clear Choice
Misalignment can lead to difficulties with the appearance and function of your smile. As an alternative to metal braces Dr. Calcagno and Dr. Brodersen offer an orthodontic solution that will help you maintain your professional image: Invisalign. Made of clear plastic, Invisalign aligners fit over your teeth like a retainer and are almost undetectable allowing you to achieve an attractive smile discreetly. Dr. Calcagno is one of the few Invisalign Preferred Providers in the country, meaning she’s received official recognition for her work on both simple and complex cases of misalignment. If you qualify for Invisalign, then treatment starts at $99 per month with no interest (with good credit).
Invisalign in Rochester, MN
As an Invisalign Preferred Provider, Dr. Calcagno has performed a larger number of cases than other Invisalign providers. Once your Rochester, MN, dentist has determined you are a candidate for Invisalign, she will take photographs, X-rays, and impressions of your teeth, which will be sent to the makers of Invisalign – Align Technology. Using 3-D computer models, Invisalign techs will create a set of aligners designed to move your teeth in small increments. After wearing each aligner for about two weeks, you will switch to the next aligner in the series, which moves your teeth a bit more than the last one. Little by little, your teeth will shift into proper alignment. Treatment times vary, but most cases take about a year to achieve straight teeth.
Benefits of Invisalign Clear Braces
Invisalign addresses a number of common alignment issues, including spaces between teeth, overlap, and crooked or crowded teeth. Correcting alignment issues can improve oral health, as uneven teeth provide a number of places for bacteria and stray food particles to hide. As a result, you can experience an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease which threaten the health and beauty of your smile. After correcting your smile with Invisalign, flossing and brushing will be easier, allowing you to remove stray food particles and bacteria with ease.
In addition, improving alignment can improve smile function by easing strain on your jaw joints which can limit the risk of bruxism and TMJ disorder. Invisalign not only improves the appearance of your smile, but your dental health and function, as well.
