Many of our patients did not wear traditional braces when they were young, however, today they seek to have straighter teeth. Another pool of individuals may actually have worn braces at one time but still hope for straighter teeth. Through advanced technology at DentalWorks - Novi Twelve Oaks at Novi, MI, custom straightening trays, such as Invisalign, can correct the teeth. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made aligner trays to gently and slowly move the teeth straight. These almost invisible fit snugly on the teeth and are worn for at least 22 hours a day. They are typically only taken off for teeth brushing, eating, and drinking certain liquids. Invisalign from our dentists at DentalWorks - Novi Twelve Oaks can successfully enhance the teeth for a dazzling smile.

What to Expect
If it is decided that Invisalign is the recommended option for teeth straightening needs, treatment begins with specialized X-rays of the mouth so that the trays can be produced. Our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Novi Twelve Oaks show each patient how to wear and care for their aligners, and explain to the patient about the importance of making sure keep in the aligners in for 20-22 hours a day. Straightening aligners are to be worn for approximately 10-14 days before the next set of aligners are then provided. This is based on the how fast the teeth move. At each check-up at DentalWorks - Novi Twelve Oaks, our dentists will provide the patient an accurate measure of how many more weeks they will need to wear Invisalign.
After the teeth are straightened with Invisalign, it is necessary that the patient wear an Invisalign Vivera retainer device to maximize the results. Most patients need to wear their retainer in place at night. To ensure the teeth remain straight, patients should continue to visit our dentists at DentalWorks - Novi Twelve Oaks twice a year and proactively incorporate a diligent home oral regime.
The fee to cover Invisalign will be determined based on the complexity pertaining to the orthodontic case, and the amount of aligning trays that will be recommended. Insurance may cover a specific percentage of the expense. This varies depending on the patient's coverage. The staff at DentalWorks - Novi Twelve Oaks will check what the patient's benefits are so that an accurate fee can be detailed by our dentists during the patient's initial appointment.
