Invisalign® to the Rescue
Invisalign Benefits

Invisalign® corrects many orthodontic issues without the hassles of traditional braces. This means no unattractive metal wire, no uncomfortable glued-on brackets and no annoying rubber bands that can leave your mouth sore. Invisalign® uses a series of clear and custom-fit removable aligners; we are able to straighten your teeth in no time. In most cases, Invisalign® treatment takes about a year.

Did we mention Invisalign® is removable?
Because the aligners used in the Invisalign® treatment process are removable, you can eat the foods you love to eat (steak, corn and bubble-gum don't mix well with traditional braces). Additionally, when you need to brush and floss, you don't have to buy special tooth brushes and flossers designed to fit between the wires and brackets of braces. The full course of treatment involves changing the Invisalign® aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step-by-step, until you have a more beautiful smile.

Not All Teeth Can Be Perfect
Invisalign Fixes Crooked teeth

Having crooked, crowded or gapped teeth can be embarrassing, sometimes painful and often uncomfortable. Generally speaking, when you speak to a dentist, he or she may recommend treating your orthodontic problem with years of uncomfortable and unattractive metal braces. This is the biggest distraction for patients to fix their teeth and enjoy a perfectly aligned smile but here at American River Dental, we want you to know there is a modern way to straighten teeth and even correct misaligned bites without the use of traditional braces. We use Invisalign®!

If you have gapped teeth, an overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite or overly crowded teeth, Invisalign® may work for you! Call us at 916-362-9247 or request an appointment online to come into the Rancho Cordova dental office of American River Dental. We would love to be able to discuss an Invisalign® plan specific to you and get you well on your way to a beautiful straight smile!

Invisalign Teen®

Invisalign Teen® is the only clear orthodontic aligner therapy designed to address the unique concerns of treating non-adult comprehensive patients. Because aligners are removable, patients can continue to eat their favorite foods and brush and floss normally to help keep teeth and gums healthy.


Invisalign Teen® has all the features of Invisalign® Full, plus:
- Compliance indicators track the patient's approximate wear time and help provide reassurance for parents that the teen is being compliant.
- Six free individual replacement aligners are included with Invisalign Teen® to replace lost or broken aligners.
- Many teens present for treatment with erupting permanent dentition, so Invisalign Teen® has been engineered with a feature to help prevent supra eruption of the second molars.

The Invisalign® Process
  1. Treatment Plan
    We will thoroughly evaluate the condition of your teeth by visual inspection as well as taking precise radiographs. This will allow us to determine how to best position your teeth, step-by-step throughout the Invisalign® process.
  2. Custom Aligners
    A high-tech Invisalign® lab designs a series of clear Invisalign® aligners based upon the exact requirements needed to treat your specific case.
  3. Wear A New Aligner Every 2 Weeks
    Depending on your specific situation, the exact time between changing aligners can vary but generally speaking, you will wear your aligners every day (about 20-22 hours a day) and start wearing the next set of aligners approximately every two weeks.
  4. The Big Reveal
    During the final days of wearing your last aligner, congratulations; you have now achieved the beautiful straight smile you were after! IT IS POSSIBLE. Call us at 916-362-9247 and let American River Dental prove to you that Invisalign® can work for you.
How Affordable is Invisalign®?
Invisalign Cost

The total cost of Invisalign treatment is similar to that of traditional braces. Many dental insurance plans cover Invisalign treatment just as they would with regular metal braces. Every unique case has many different factors that can all affect total treatment cost so it's extremely difficult to put a price tag on custom treatment plans.

American River Dental can do all the leg-work for you and will check with your dental insurance provider to see just how much they will cover.
Call our office at 916-362-9247 or request an appointment and come in to be evaluated. Only then will we be able to quote an Invisalign treatment plan, work with your insurance and talk about available payment options. We will make sure there is no guessing and you know how much your specific treatment will be. Most patients are amazed at just how affordable and easy it is to obtain a straighter smile!
