Peter Thompson DDS

Invisalign

Invisalign Roswell NMAre you a Roswell resident who wants straighter teeth without the hassle of traditional metal braces? In addition to general dentistry services, Peter Thompson, DDS, offers an alternative to regular orthodontic treatment called Invisalign.

What makes Invisalign special?

While traditional braces require permanent bonding of metal to your teeth for an average of 2-4 years, Invisalign straightens your teeth with removable, metal-free aligners in a fraction of the time. Using a series of clear, nearly invisible aligning trays, Invisalign straightens your teeth gently, comfortably, and discreetly. The result is that you can watch as your teeth gradually become straighter and feel confident about your smile through the entire process. The best part is that Invisalign trays are removable, so that you can brush, floss, eat, and drink normally.

Every 6-8 weeks, Dr. Thompson’s Roswell Invisalign patients visit our office to receive their next aligner and ensure that their treatment is on track.

How long does it take?

Most Roswell folks can straighten their teeth with Invisalign in less than a year.

Each custom, thermoplastic Invisalign tray is worn for two weeks before moving on to the next set. Dr. Thompson recommends wearing your trays for 20-22 hours per day, making sure only to remove them when brushing, flossing, eating, or drinking. While some Roswell residents with Invisalign may experience a slight lisp when beginning treatment, this only lasts for a day or two while your mouth adjusts to the aligners.

Does Insurance Cover Invisalign?

Insurance coverage varies widely according to the insurance carrier and the benefit plan, but Invisalign is usually covered for the same amount as traditional braces, provided orthodontic coverage is included in your plan. Dr. Thompson recommends that Roswell residents contact their insurance providers to find out about their specific benefits.
