Invisalign®

Invisalign® aligners prove that effective orthodontic treatment doesn’t have to be difficult. Invisalign® is the modern, discreet, and easy way to straighten your teeth and get a better-looking smile.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners in Twin Falls, ID

Invisalign® clear aligners offer a subtle and efficient solution for orthodontic care, serving as an excellent option compared to traditional metal braces. These aligners are designed to be worn over the teeth, gently modifying the spacing and alignment over time. Patients transition to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, each one progressively moving the teeth closer to their desired arrangement.

Invisalign® aligners are tailored specifically for you, crafted from digital impressions of your teeth to ensure precise control over the straightening process. The Invisalign® ClinCheck system enables us to map out each phase of your treatment from start to finish, allowing you to preview the ultimate results you can expect.

How Much Does Invisalign® Cost?

Many insurance policies cover the cost of Invisalign® aligners, just as traditional metal braces. The total cost of Invisalign® treatment depends on how long it takes you to finish the process, which is determined by the extent of correction your teeth need. At our Twin Falls office, the typical price for our comprehensive Invisalign® treatment is $5,500.

If you have any financial inquiries, please reach out to our office. We’d be happy to review your insurance details or explore other payment possibilities.

Invisalign® Process at Mint Dental Care

  1. Consultation & Exam. Dr. Funk will examine your teeth to ensure you are a good candidate for Invisalign® clear aligners, given the severity and type of correction needed. Dr. Funk will also ensure you have healthy teeth and gums that respond well to Invisalign®.
  2. Records Appointment. To plan out your Invisalign® treatment and ensure eligibility, the next step is taking digital X-rays, scans, and photos of your teeth. These will be the baseline for creating your first set of Invisalign® clear aligners.
  3. Plan Overview & ClinCheck. Approximately two weeks after your records appointment, Dr. Funk will meet with you to review the final plan once your treatment plan is complete.
  4. Begin Treatment. After approval, we’ll create your first set of Invisalign® aligners and schedule regular appointments so new aligners can be provided to you as needed. We’ll monitor your progress throughout treatment and provide instructions on proper use and maintenance.

Common Questions About Invisalign®

  • How long does Invisalign® take?

    Invisalign® treatment length depends on how much work needs to be done on your teeth and how regularly you wear your aligners. Most patients wear a set of trays for two weeks at a time for approximately two years. More minor corrections will take less time. The only way to be sure of the length of time necessary is to schedule a consultation.

  • Who is eligible for Invisalign®?

    Invisalign® is designed for teens and adults who need mild to moderate orthodontic corrections. Invisalign® is an excellent orthodontic treatment for bite corrections and gap teeth.

    Anyone with adult teeth can get Invisalign®. Patients appreciate Invisalign® because you can get it without the stigma or self-consciousness of wearing metal braces.

    There is no upper age limit for Invisalign®. People of all ages, who have adult teeth, are able to get Invisalign®. Many people find Invisalign® appealing because it lets adults receive orthodontic treatment without any of the stigma or self-consciousness associated with wearing metal braces. This is just as true for someone in their 20’s as in their 60’s.

  • Invisalign® vs. braces—what's the difference?

    Invisalign® aligners and traditional metal braces differ significantly in their design and convenience. Invisalign® is made from clear, transparent plastic, making it less visible, and can be easily removed by the wearer, allowing for greater flexibility in eating and oral hygiene. In contrast, metal braces consist of visible wires and brackets and require professional removal, often leading to dietary restrictions and a higher risk of mouth injuries due to their sharp edges.

  • Does Invisalign® hurt?

    Invisalign® typically causes less discomfort than traditional metal braces. While patients may experience mild pressure and temporary discomfort each time a new set of aligners is introduced, this sensation usually subsides within a few days. The smooth, plastic design of Invisalign® aligners also minimizes the irritation to the gums and cheeks often associated with the sharp edges of metal braces.

    We recommend putting in your new aligner set at night so that you can sleep through the initial discomfort of a new aligner set.
