Invisalign Braces

Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible, customized aligners.

INVISALIGN – The clear alternative to metal braces.

Invisalign Clear Orthodontics has helped us to transform the way we straighten teeth and improve smiles. Dr. Barton and his team utilize Invisalign’s patented medical imaging technology to manufacture clear aligners that rapidly straighten teeth.

For many of our guests, Invisalign has become the first healthy step to a powerful smile. For some, it is the primary solution.

A powerful smile is not only aesthetically appealing, it also promotes good health:

  • Teeth that are straight and properly aligned create a more perfect bite, which can reduce excessive stress, headaches and strain on your supporting bone and tissue.
  • Teeth that are straight and evenly spaced are easier to keep clean, leading to better oral health. Better oral health can reduce the incidence of heart disease, gastrointestinal disease and other health conditions.
  • Teeth that are properly aligned chew more efficiently, which aids in proper digestion.

Using a precise 3 dimensional analysis of your teeth and adjacent tissue, we will custom craft aligners to fit the unique structure of your mouth and jaw. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and can be removed to eat, brush, floss and for brief special occasions. During wear, your teeth are gently moved to their ideal position. The length of the process depends on your specific situation and desired results.

Does insurance cover Invisalign?

How else can I get help for Invisalign?
Many companies allow pre-tax contributions to be set aside in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA). Orthodontic treatment is considered a qualified treatment that can be reimbursed using your FSA. Many doctors also offer flexible and affordable in-house payment plans.

Why should I choose Dr. Barton for my Orthodontic treatment?
Dr. Barton has had extensive training in the art and science of occlusion. Occlusion is the relation between the upper and lower teeth when the jaw is closed and their surfaces come in contact. Orthodontics is not just about creating straight teeth; it is also about establishing a healthy, long-lasting biting position for the teeth. Crooked teeth often result in excessive wear to teeth that can result in a variety of long-term problems. Dr. Barton understands the importance of function and aesthetics.

In addition, many people choose Dr. Barton for teeth straightening prior to proceeding with cosmetic veneers. His ability to establish proper bite positioning before making the final cosmetic enhancement significantly improves one’s chances of achieving the most natural looking, long lasting results.
