Invisalign

Adults and teens love Invisalign because, in less time than regular braces, this treatment straightens teeth using clear, comfortable, removable aligners. How would you feel about your appearance if your teeth were correctly aligned, and your smile looked sensational? How would your life change? A study conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that individuals with an attractive smile are deemed more intelligent, friendly, and successful than those with a sub-par smile. Imagine knowing that you look great when you smile! All this is now possible, without having to wear bulky metal braces for two years.

To learn about Invisalign clear orthodontic aligners and find out if you’re a good candidate for the procedure, call Lane Family Dental in Wasilla, AK today at 907-393-2200.

The Appliances

The Invisalign system has improved significantly since its inception in 1997. In the past, these custom-made aligners were only recommended for mild orthodontic issues. Today, Invisalign can correct a wide range of problems, including crowding, overbites, and gaps between the teeth. Fabricated from BPA-free thermoplastic materials, Invisalign trays are sleek, comfortable, and virtually invisible.

The Consultation

During your initial consultation at our practice, Dr. Lane will perform an assessment of the teeth, gums, jaw joints, and surrounding structures. He will also talk with you about your personal oral health and cosmetic goals. Patients considering Invisalign should be free from tooth decay or gum disease, as both could seriously hinder the success of your treatment. If these issues are present, restorative procedures will be recommended before moving forward with orthodontic treatment.

If Dr. Lane determines you are eligible for Invisalign, he will take digital impressions of your teeth. These images will be sent to our trusted dental lab, where your custom aligner trays will be fabricated. Dr. Lane will work closely with the lab during this process to ensure optimal results.

The Treatment

Once your Invisalign trays arrive at our office, we will schedule you for another appointment. During this visit, Dr. Lane will try in your first set of aligners and make sure they fit properly. He will then provide you with a detailed list of instructions. These guidelines will include information about when to switch out your trays, how often to wear them, and how to properly maintain them.

Invisalign is only effective when worn as directed. In order for the teeth to move properly, the aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours every day. Patients should only remove them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Approximately every two weeks, your current aligners will be switched out for the next set in the series. As you move through the progression of aligner trays, the subtle differences will gently guide your teeth into their desired positions over time.

Treatment times can vary significantly depending on the case. Patients with mild misalignment may achieve a straighter smile in just a few months, while those with complex cases may need much longer. On average, Invisalign treatment can be completed in about 18 to 24 months.

Schedule Your Invisalign Consultation

Invisalign could change your smile, your self-confidence, and the impression you make on others, at work and at play. Call Dr. Lane today at 907-393-2200 to schedule an Invisalign consultation, so you can learn more about this innovative treatment.

About a year or so ago I discovered Lane Dental. Due to circumstances in my life I hadn’t been to a dentist in a really long time. They were very caring and kind. Since then I’ve had some teeth removed and am currently having a partial made. They have been patiently working with me and my insurance. Asia has been wonderful to work with for my scheduling and Dr. lane has been so kind and gentle. His assistants have been a real pleasure also. Thank you to the entire staff ?

The best dentist I’ve had in my 60 years. Absolutely impeccably clean facilities. New facilities. The latest techniques and strategies to provide excellent dental care. And most of all the least amount of pain I’ve ever felt at the dentist.

Fantastic customer service! Everybody there is very friendly and easy to talk to. They explained everything that was going on with my teeth, provided a plan to get them back in good shape, and cleaned em up real nice. It may have been a while since my last trip to a dentist, but I don't remember the visits being so relaxing.

Great atmosphere, staff, and dentist. I had a bad experience the last time I went to the dentist so I was petrified to go in but this place was totally relieving. Me and my family will always be coming here with our dental needs.

My husband and I recently found Lane Family Dental. We are both so pleased with their professionalism, modern equipment and outstanding care. The people at the front and Dr. Lane's dental assistant are bright, cheeful and professional as well. Living in Talkeetna we are so pleased they have two offices, one being in Willow which is quite convenient. Thank you Lane Family Dental for providing such great care to the Mat-Su Valley.

I'm pretty self conscious about my teeth, when I went into Lane Family Dental I felt very comfortable, and welcomed as soon as I opened the door. The staff here are amazing! I also enjoy how customer based the office is with refreshments, massage chairs and Netflix. After 10 years of trying to find a good dentist, Dr. Lane is by far the best.

I had so much built up anxiety from not going to regular dental check ups like I probably should have but the staff was phenomenal! They all made me feel comfortable, didn't judge me, and had great hospitality. The hygentist was sweet, and gentle. I have not experienced that in a long time. I'm actually excited to go back in a few months for another cleaning. From the time I walked in to the time I left I felt like I chose the right place to go.

This is the second time I’ve gone here and I’m still blown away by the service and attention to detail. Prior to these guys, I used to dread dental visits. At this office, they go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and happy. We just had our first child three weeks ago and I had to bring him with. I hoped that he would sleep through, but of course he woke up as soon as I showed up for the appt. He was hungry, but instead of getting upset with sticking to time schedules, they encouraged me to make sure he ate enough and burped before we started. He was still fussy, so their receptionist (she is amazing) held him while their dental hygienist (she was also awesome) did my x-rays and then we tucked him in the chair with me during the cleaning. Love it! My teeth are super shiny clean and both this mamma and her baby are very satisfied customers. ^_^
