If you desire straighter teeth but shy away from the idea of metal braces, consider Invisalign — a custom-made clear aligner from Align Technology Inc. Dr. Binkowski has significant experience at providing Invisalign treatment; he has attained Invisalign® Preferred Provider status. We submit Invisalign impressions digitally from our intraoral 3D scanner, which cuts the time between impressions to ClinCheck from 10 days to 24-48 hours. Most patients don’t realize it, but all Invisalign-certified dentists and orthodontists use the same company to create orthodontic treatment plans as well as manufacture the aligners. In the interest of improving access to the revolutionary orthodontic treatment we offer the treatment to patients and non-patients of record at a substantially more affordable price levels than most providers in Central Iowa. Additionally, at Story City Dental, you can take advantage of payment plans that allow you or your child to start using Invisalign clear aligners without having to pay the full fee right away. Please contact our office to learn more about financing options or visit www.invisalign.com to find out more about how the aligners move teeth.
Invisalign manufactures clear aligners that are designed specifically to move your teeth to where they physiologically should be step-by-step. The aligners are programmed to align, level and derotate all teeth much in the same way traditional braces do. You’ll receive a series of aligners to help gradually transform your smile week by week.
Invisalign clear aligners are perfect solutions for abnormal alignment, functional issues and esthetic dental problems; it is not just limited to simple orthodontic cases. We use Invisalign for more than a beautiful smile, though — these aligners can help move teeth into the right position before we perform a large esthetic crown case or help to create space where a tooth is missing to place an implant.
Our staff at Story City Dental have the capability to create digital impressions with a 3D intraoral scanner rather than taking a traditional impression of your mouth. The scanner takes about two minutes per arch and speeds up the ClinCheck by several days. With this technology, you will also be able to see a simulation of your outcomes (Clincheck), week by week, to ensure we reach your goal of straight, even teeth.
