Invisalign®.  Clearly, you’ve heard about it.  You just might not have seen it.  It’s the biggest thing in the world of orthodontics since braces!  It is the product that makes everyone who had to suffer through braces, jealous!  The revolution of Invisalign allows you to move your teeth closer to your perfect smile, almost invisibly.


The advantages of Invisalign® are obvious, but in case there are skeptics out there, let’s go down the list.  We’ll start by tackling the only real question that could cause hesitation: COST.  


According to “the cost of Invisalign treatment is comparable to traditional braces cost, and in the U.S., can range from $3,000 – $8,000.”  Many insurance plans cover Invisalign treatment as it would braces or visits to the dentist.  Your Flexible Spending Account through your insurance provider can be used as well!   Don’t believe it?  Just ask Dr. Huerter, or check out the Invisalign Cost Calculator yourself at:


Now, let’s discuss the fun part of Invisalign®.  Yes, you read that correctly!  Never before has straightening your teeth been fun, until now.  Invisalign is the comfortable, removable and nearly invisible solution!  No one wants a crooked smile.  You would not be reading this if you did not want your teeth or your child’s teeth straightened, to give them the smile and confidence that everyone deserves.  Therefore, the question is clear.  It’s the ultimate orthodontic match up:


Braces vs Invisalign

Old School vs New School




Brushing your teeth twice a day is simple again.  You don’t need to do the extra work and inspection with traditional braces.  Not having to floss in between wires saves time as well.    Simply brush, rinse, floss and move on with your day!  



Remove your Invisalign aligners when you eat.  This means you do not have to worry about food getting stuck in traditional braces.  Another problem is solved!  Snack foods such as: candy, popcorn and pretzels; amongst others, are notorious for this.  



Invisalign® is proven to be as effective as traditional braces.  Change your aligners roughly every two weeks and visit your doctor roughly every two months for check ups.  That means less visits to your orthodontist!



Most contact sports require athletes to wear protective mouth guards.  Invisalign® makes it simple.  Just swap out your aligner for your mouthguard.  A mouthguard is standard again, instead of being bulky, and even larger, when worn over braces.  



Confidence is key!  Have an important meeting, sporting event or the big dance coming up?  With Invisalign, you can remove your aligners at a moment’s notice, giving you the confidence to move forward without hesitation.  But remember, Invisalign® is virtually invisible already!  Most likely, when you are wearing your Invisalign aligners, you are the only one that notices it.  The choice is clear!
