Invisalign® / Invisalign® Teen
Invisalign is a treatment that can address many dental concerns, such as crowding, spacing, over bite, under bite, deep bite and open bite.
Invisalign consists of a series of clear, custom fit, removable aligners (trays) that apply a controlled amount of force to your teeth, causing them to move over time into the desired position. The system provides the same beautiful results as traditional braces, but since the trays are made of clear plastic, they are virtually invisible. In addition, because Invisalign trays are removable, they can be taken out while eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
iTero Element Digital Scanner
At your consultation we will take a 3D digital scan of your teeth and bite and use this as your impression to make your invisalign trays. Yes, that’s right no more messy goopy impressions!
After your scan is completed (about 10 minutes) you will see a Smile Simulation with our technology. No more guessing or trying to imagine how your teeth and smile will look once your teeth are aligned properly. Only a few general dentists in Las Vegas have the latest technology – The iTero Element Digital Scanner in their office. Dr. Racanelli is proud to be one of them.
Benefits of this technology are:
- No more messy impression trays
- Faster start times as your case is submitted electronically
- See a preview of how your teeth could look at the end of treatment
- Better fitting trays
Invisalign works by creating a series of trays that will move your teeth gradually until the end result is achieved. Traditionally your aligners are changed every 14 days to the next one in the sequence. But you can reduce your treatment time by as much as 65% with Propel! This is part of our Invisalign Accelerated Package.
Propel Accelerated Orthodontics Technology
Dr. Racanelli is a certified provider of Propel Accelerated Orthodontics. Propel is a revolutionary procedure that speeds up your treatment time with more predictable results. He is a pioneer in this amazing treatment and one of just a few dentists and orthodontists in the Las Vegas area that offers it to his patients. Propel allows for 5 day Invisalign aligner intervals (time with each aligner) compared to the traditional 14 day interval. The shorter time in each aligner allows you to complete your Invisalign treatment much quicker – up to 65% less time.
For example, a case that would require 25 trays (one years worth of treatment) could potentially be completed within 5-6 months time with Propel.
Throughout the process, you will visit Dr. Racanelli every six – eight weeks to ensure treatment is progressing as planned. Once your treatment is complete, you will likely wear a clear retainer to ensure your new smile stays in place.
As with all orthodontic appliances, the cost of Invisalign varies according to the complexity of the case. Insurance policies generally cover Invisalign to the same extent that they cover traditional braces.
We invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation, visit our office and meet with Dr. Racanelli and his professional staff. He will personally discuss your goals for your smile, come up with a custom plan to meet them and make sure all of your questions are answered.
Our Office Manager and Treatment Coordinator, Rachel can discuss with you the specifics of your case and give you an accurate cost based on your individual needs.
