Attachments and Elastics
Tools for Better Precision and Bite Correction
Sometimes your smile needs a little more than clear aligners alone. Yes, your aligners will make your teeth straighter, but to achieve your best results we may advise using attachments or elastics.
This is what truly sets us apart from the companies you have seen on TV and on social media. Yes, they may ship aligners right to your door- which is convenient BUT they do not have the capability to address any bite issues you may have. In result, this leaves you with a bite that is uncomfortable and your only solution is to go see your dentist to have your bite adjusted. Which can often times be expensive.
We do not want you to have that experience! We want you to get it done right, the first time around!
Attachments allow us to make complex tooth movements, and help your aligners apply the right amount of force in the right direction. They are tiny, tooth-colored shapes that are temporarily affixed to some of your teeth before and during your INVISALIGN® treatment. Your clear aligners fit over the and they are barely noticeable (see pictures below) also learn more about attachments here. Please remember they are only temporary and they do not do any damage to your teeth while on the tooth or during removal!
Elastics helps us treat more complicated cases, such as those needing underbite, overbite and crossbite correction.
Not everyone who uses INVISALIGN needs attachments and elastics. After we’ve studied your scan, we can help you understand which options will give you the straightest, most beautiful smile.
And yes, if you need these they are all included with treatment for $3,000.00!
Everyone has the same bill, no surprises!
