Dr. Dunegan is a Diamond Invisalign Provider – Among the Top 1% in the Nation!

We know that the wires and brackets found in traditional braces aren’t for everyone, which is why we are pleased to offer Invisalign clear aligners. Metal braces are still an extremely popular way to straighten any smile as they are suitable for people of all ages and have shown to be highly effective.

Invisalign aligners are comfortable, low profile, custom-made clear plastic trays that most people don’t even know you are wearing. As your teeth change and your smile improves, you will change aligners regularly, wearing them for 20-22 hours a day.

Invisalign® effectively treats the following cases:

  • Crowding
  • Spacing
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite
  • Underbite

How does it work?

Invisalign® uses the latest in cutting-edge orthodontic technology to move your teeth into the position designated by our orthodontists. Using special computerized imaging, we create a treatment plan that will be used to make a series of customized aligners that you’ll wear for two weeks at a time for a minimum of 20 hours per day. After two weeks you’ll move onto the next aligner in the series and repeat the process until your treatment is complete.

STEP 1

Visit our office to determine if Invisalign® is right for you. Our orthodontist will examine your mouth and jaw to determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign.

STEP 2

Invisalign® uses advanced computer technology to create precisely calibrated and manufactured aligners to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.

STEP 3

Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained.

What are the Advantages of Invisalign?

Some other advantages of Invisalign & Invisalign Teen include:

  • Improved Oral Hygiene — Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you’ll be able to properly brush and floss during treatment and maintain optimum oral health.
  • Virtually Invisible —Gone are the days of metal wires and brackets! Many adults and teens are self-conscious about wearing braces, but with Invisalign, no one will have to know you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.
  • No Food Restrictions — Traditionally, wearing braces meant cutting back on your favorite crunchy, chewy foods. During treatment with Invisalign, you can remove your aligners, and still eat all your favorite foods.
  • Comfort — Invisalign is made from a soft flexible material that won’t irritate your mouth and gums like traditional metal wires and brackets.
  • Teeth-Grinding Protection — If you have a habit of grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw while you sleep, Invisalign can function as a thin night guard that helps protect your teeth from excessive wear.
