We definitely recommend Modern Family Dentistry. Today, my son had two teeth that were hurting him and couldn’t eat. We called and they fit us in the same day and my son was a new patient. The dentist and staff were kind, caring and explained everything clearly. They will be our first call for all of our families dental needs. Thank you for everything!

I went here after seeing another local Dentist. I’m so glad I switched to here ! The office staff is super friendly and helpful. The Dentist is very approachable and wants to do everything they can to save teeth. As a Dentist should be ! The previous dentist only seemed to care about money. Told me to just have all my top teeth pulled and get dentures. Here they gave me a thorough exam along with a plan and I’m optimistic I will get my smile back by working with them!

    For a Beautiful Smile and a Healthy Lifestyle

    While having straight teeth undoubtedly enhances your appearance, it also plays a crucial role in avoiding costly dental and medical issues. It may seem surprising, but proper teeth alignment is essential for a healthy life. You might think crooked teeth are not a big deal if they’re not bothering you, but correctly aligned teeth are vital for proper function and longevity.

      A significant number of people—nearly 9 out of 10—experience some form of crowding or misalignment, which can lead to various problems, including:
    • Chipped front teeth or tooth loss
    • Food particles getting trapped between teeth
    • Difficulty in flossing and cleaning between teeth
    • Increased risk of cavities in interdental spaces
    • Gum disease, which is linked to heightened risks of systemic health issues like heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, and increased risk of stroke

    If you’re experiencing any of these issues, it’s crucial to consult with a dental professional for an oral health evaluation.

    When is the Best Time to Start?

    If you’ve been considering straightening your teeth—whether you’ve just received a recommendation from your dentist or you’ve been thinking about it for a while—delaying the decision can lead to further dissatisfaction, increased risks of dental breaks, and related health complications. Additionally, teeth continue to shift over time.

    The longer you wait, the more misaligned your teeth may become, potentially extending the duration and cost of treatment. It’s generally easier, faster, and more cost-effective to begin correcting teeth alignment before severe misalignment occurs.

    Don’t let concerns about costs deter you. The full payment isn’t required upfront, and our office provides several flexible payment options that many of our patients find manageable.

    What to Expect When You Start Your Treatment

    At our clinic, we are committed to helping our patients achieve both optimal health and a stunning smile, starting with a solid foundation of properly aligned and functioning teeth. Remember, it’s never too late to benefit from straightening your teeth.

    Your Treatment Plan

    Your journey begins with digital scans of your teeth, which are used to craft a personalized treatment plan. Utilizing Invisalign’s advanced software, we can precisely forecast how your teeth will adjust over time using the aligners. We’ll even provide you with visuals showing the expected progression of your teeth at various stages, all the way through to the conclusion of your treatment. Once your digital plan is approved, your custom aligners are created using Invisalign’s cutting-edge printing technology.

    The First Set of Aligners

    Upon receiving your aligners, we might attach special fasteners to your teeth. These are temporarily bonded to ensure your aligners fit securely. Though mostly invisible, these fasteners are easily removable and will be taken off at the end of your treatment.

    Follow-Up Appointments

    You will receive a set of clear aligners to wear for approximately two weeks each. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will gradually shift into their designated positions. We schedule follow-up visits about every one to two months to monitor your progress and ensure the treatment is proceeding as expected. These check-ins are crucial to achieving the best results and making any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.

     

    Starting this treatment can be a significant step towards not only improving your smile but also enhancing your overall dental health.

    Understanding the Cost of Invisalign in Crystal River

    Invisalign is a popular choice for straightening teeth due to its effectiveness and discreet appearance. The cost of Invisalign can vary based on several factors, but here’s what you can generally expect:

    With Insurance Coverage

    If you have dental insurance that covers orthodontic treatment, the out-of-pocket expense for Invisalign typically ranges from $3,000 to $5,000+. After an initial oral exam, we can provide a precise quote, helping you understand the coverage from your insurance plan and your actual out-of-pocket costs.

    Without Insurance

    For those without orthodontic coverage, Invisalign treatment generally costs about $4,000 to $6,000+. The specific cost can depend on various aspects of your treatment.

    Factors Influencing the Cost of Your Invisalign Treatment:

    • Oral Health Status: The current condition of your oral health can affect the complexity and length of the treatment
    • Degree of Adjustment Needed: How much your teeth need to shift to achieve the desired alignment
    • Treatment Duration: The overall length of time required to complete the treatment

    Each smile is unique, which is why a personal consultation is essential to determine if Invisalign is the right solution for you and to provide an accurate cost estimate. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your personal goals, examine your teeth, and develop a customized treatment plan tailored to meet your needs.

    Treatment Possibilities

    Our clinic is equipped to handle a variety of cases, from express adjustments to more complex functional and cosmetic situations. If your needs exceed our scope, we will refer you to a specialist who can provide the necessary care.

    Regardless of your age or the complexity of your dental goals, it’s worth exploring your options. We offer solutions for every unique situation, ensuring that each patient can achieve a straighter, more confident smile without letting misaligned teeth affect their self-esteem or health. Don’t hesitate to reach out and schedule a consultation to learn more about Invisalign and other available treatment options.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Invisalign uses a series of custom-made, clear aligners that fit snugly over your teeth. These aligners are designed using advanced 3D computer imaging technology to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving on to the next set in the series, gradually moving your teeth towards their final, corrected positions.

    Invisalign is effective for treating a wide range of orthodontic problems, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, gap teeth, and crowded teeth. However, there are some severe cases where traditional braces might be more effective. A consultation with an orthodontist is the best way to determine if Invisalign is suitable for your specific case.

    The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case and how often you wear your aligners. On average, treatment can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months, but you might start seeing improvements in just a few weeks. For the best results, aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day.

    Invisalign aligners require daily cleaning. It is recommended to rinse them every night and brush them gently with a toothbrush and water to keep them clear and free from food debris and bacteria. Avoid using hot water, as it can warp the aligners. Additionally, you should continue practicing good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing your teeth before reinserting the aligners.

    Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, so there are no food restrictions. You can remove the aligners while eating or drinking anything other than water. However, it’s important to brush your teeth before reinserting the aligners to maintain proper oral hygiene and prevent staining the aligners.
