A Better Smile With Invisalign

We see 100s of families in Apex and we are 100% positive Invisalign should be done by a family dentist. – Dr Draper

By the time children are ready to start Invisalign parents are experiencing orthodontic relapse. This is why “family dentistry” is so important. Orthodontic problems are often genetic. While every patient is unique, Invisalign treatment for one family member can help inform the treatment of another. As dentists we often catch orthodontic problems durning regular cleanings that can easily be treated by Invisalign before they become a time consuming issue. This ensures fast treatment, fewer visits at a more affordable cost.

Cracked Invisalign aligners, missing rubber bands? It is ok because our Apex dentist office offers same day appointment options to help you stay on track. We also offer Saturday hours from 8am to 4pm and driving to our Apex dentist office is simpler than ever. We are conveniently located near 540, US 64 and US 1.

The Cost of Invisalign

Invisalign ranges from $2000 for simple cases, usually caught early, to $6500 for more complex cases. More expensive treatment costs are experienced by patients who also need complex oral surgeries. The average cost for Invisalign is about $4500.

We understand that this is not always possible to pay for expensive dental treatment upfront. If you need to make payment arrangements please develop a payment plan with one of our billing specialist prior to your first Invisalign appointment. We offer 6 and 12 month structured payment plans (down payment required). We also work with Care Credit for patients who prefer to finance their Invisalign treatment with no down payment or prefer a payment structure longer than 12 months.

Choosing to straighten your teeth is a big decision that affects not only your appearance but also your lifestyle. As an adult, you may be looking to improve your smile for business and social reasons, or even for a special occasion like your wedding day. Or perhaps, you are a teen or the parent of a teen looking for an effective, modern answer to the braces conundrum. Either way, Invisalign can provide a simple way to get straighter, more symmetrical teeth without having to put your smile on hold.

Dental Work While Undergoing Invisalign Treatment

At BetterDental we spend hundreds of hours on continued training and state of the art equipment to ensure we are offering Invisalign treatment that goes beyond old school orthodontics. We treat your whole smile with the latest innovations from Invisalign, teeth whitening and dental restorations.

Occasionally other issues surface during your Invisalign treatment. For example, your teenager needs a porcelain filling. Fillings can often make the tooth slightly larger. This makes the Invisalign trays fit poorly in your child’s mouth and negatively effects your child’s treatment. It can cause costly delays. However when children undergo treatment for Invisalign and get their filling at BetterDental we can ensure they stay on track with their Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign aligners are made of a virtually invisible plastic, addressing many of the problems associated with metal braces. As your teeth slowly but steadily move to their desired position, you will be surprised to see how many people will fail to notice that you are undergoing an orthodontic treatment. That means not having to feel self-conscious about how you look while you straighten your smile. One thing people may notice, however, is that you are smiling a whole lot more!

The Invisalign treatment is highly popular among individuals who needed but never received braces in their youth, as well as those who have been postponing their orthodontic work due to aesthetic concerns regarding braces. Studies show that many teens and adults are unhappy with their crooked or asymmetrical smile, but not quite unhappy enough to endure the hassle, embarrassment, and time commitment of traditional braces.

What to expect during Invisalign treatment
