Invisalign – Levittown, PA
The Metal-Free Way
to a Straight Smile
For a long time, the only way to straighten spaced-out, overlapped, and otherwise misaligned teeth was to wear metal brackets and wires. Naturally, image-conscious teens weren’t exactly thrilled by the prospect of wearing noticeable braces. The good news is that there is now a considerably more discreet alternative: Invisalign. To learn more about this innovative orthodontic treatment, keep reading or schedule a consultation!

How Invisalign Works
The entire teeth-straightening process begins with a consultation with our dedicated orthodontist, Dr. Aieman Jazaierly. At this appointment, they will take the necessary X-rays and examine the position of your child’s teeth to determine if they are a candidate for Invisalign. If they are, then a custom treatment plan will be made to guide their teeth from where they are now to where they should be. This is accomplished with a series of clear aligners, which must be worn for 20-22 hours a day.
Indications for Invisalign
Over the years, Invisalign has continued to advance, making it a great fit for patients with all sorts of orthodontic problems. Here are a few of the most common ones:
Overcrowded teeth can do much more than negatively impact your child’s self-esteem; it can impact your child’s oral health! The good news is that the clear aligners can gently guide their teeth into the properly aligned positions, improving the look, health, and function of their smile in the process.
Gaps Between Teeth
Spaced-out teeth are similar to overlapping teeth in the sense that they create unique crevices where food particles and plaque can hide. With Invisalign, we can close these gaps in an average of just 12-18 months. So, your child won’t have to wait long to see the results!
If your child has an overbite, underbite, open bite, or crossbite, it’s important to bring them in. From there, we can determine if Invisalign can effectively align their bite. Often, this requires the use of other orthodontic accessories, like buttons and rubber bands.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Hands down, the biggest draw of Invisalign is that the aligners are see-through, making orthodontic treatment more discreet than ever before. However, there are other benefits that are equally as noteworthy, including:
- No dietary restrictions
- Shorter average treatment timelines
- Fewer check-in visits
- Comfortable trays
- Hassle-free oral hygiene
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Parents are often surprised to hear that there isn’t a flat fee for Invisalign. The reason why is that each treatment plan is custom-made! Before determining the price of your child’s orthodontic treatment, we need to consider the complexity of their case, how many aligners are needed, if rubber bands need to be included, and more. With all of that said, we will provide you with an estimate of the price at their appointment and share all of the ways you can prevent additional costs from coming up down the line.
