Find out how Invisalign treatment from Dearborn Family Dentistry can give you a stunning smile.
A Truly Modern Orthodontic Treatment
Why Choose Invisalign Over Another Orthodontic Option?
Here are just some of the reasons why these removable clear aligners are such a popular treatment:
You may hesitate to smile for a photo with noticeable metal braces on your teeth. With these thin, removable aligners, you can feel free to show off your smile and create lasting memories with loved ones.
A safe choice
Every athlete cringes at the thought of being hit in the mouth while wearing metal braces. Because Invisalign clear aligners are made of flexible plastic, you can play sports without any fear of painful collisions between braces and the sensitive tissues of your mouth.
No need for an orthodontist
Because Invisalign is intended to treat a wide range of moderate dental issues instead of severe problems, it does not require an orthodontist to prescribe. While an orthodontist can treat patients with clear aligners, your Dearborn dentist is fully qualified to see you through the Invisalign process.
No dietary restrictions
Patients with traditional braces often have to cut favorite foods and treats out of their diet during treatment, but with removable aligners, you can eat and drink whatever you want on your own schedule.
Reduce nighttime grinding and headaches during treatment
Do you often wake up with a headache because of tooth grinding or jaw clenching during sleep? Invisalign aligners act as a soft barrier between the upper and lower teeth, preventing the pain and wear caused by nighttime grinding.

Invisalign Attachments Make Treatment Possible for More Patients
What are attachments?
Invisalign attachments are tiny resin-based spots carefully placed on the surface of the tooth to help aligners stay in place. These attachments create a stronger bond between a tooth and the aligner to more efficiently straighten teeth.
Will my attachments be noticeable?
Your dentist can precisely match an Invisalign attachment to the natural color of your tooth, making the attachment as discreet as your aligner itself.
Are attachments difficult to place?
Bonding an attachment to the tooth is a very simple process. Your dentist will determine the best location on the tooth for the attachment based on your personal treatment plan, then they will carefully place it and cure it to achieve a stable bond.
Are attachments permanent?
Not at all! Once you have completed treatment with your clear aligners, your dentist will quickly and painlessly buff any attachments off of your teeth, leaving no permanent mark.
Will I need attachments?
Most patients do not require Invisalign attachments to achieve results. Your dentist will only recommend attachments if your treatment plan is especially complicated or if Invisalign would not otherwise be an option for you. If your misalignment is severe enough that it cannot be corrected even with the help of Invisalign attachments, your dentist can refer you to an orthodontist.
A Beautiful Smile at Any Age
Older patients may think that they have missed their opportunity to achieve a straight, beautiful smile. This couldn't be further from the truth! Invisalign can be an excellent orthodontic option for all ages. Skip the "braces phase" and enjoy the benefits of these comfortable, discreet aligners at home, in the workplace, or during a night out. Because Invisalign does not require a background in orthodontics to administer, your dentist can handle the entirety of your treatment, and you won't need to bother with additional visits to an orthodontist.

Your Personalized Path to a New Smile
"Best dentist I've been to."
Best dentist I've been to. My childhood doctor would be hurt if I told him. Lol! The hygienist was a gem. Very respectful and explained a lot. She even took photos of my problem areas so I could see them. I never had that kind of attention before. The dental assistant held my hand when they injected the numbing solution into my gums! The front desk woman even gave me a break down of all the charges before I went through with it. Thanks for the great service. Super nice.View on Google
Honestly...no one better...Dr Mark Luria is by far the most patient, caring, well respected Dentist. He is very kind and gentle and trust me that helps as I was just in for an emergency. The staff there is beyond helpful and understands the needs of the patient! Thank you Dr Mark and staff for staying so late in office on Friday to do my emergency, you all are outstanding!!View on Google
What to Know Before Choosing Invisalign
There are a few important considerations to understand before choosing Invisalign treatment:
Committing to the process
Because Invisalign allows you an unprecedented level of freedom compared to traditional braces or other orthodontic treatments, it requires a deep personal commitment to achieve the best results. Patients must wear their aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
Length of treatment
While Invisalign can transform your smile more quickly than traditional braces, the process can take several months to over a year depending on the original state of your teeth. Our Dearborn, MI, practice can provide an estimated treatment timeline during your initial dental consultation.
In your first few days with Invisalign, you may notice some mild discomfort. This is completely normal and occurs as your teeth adjust to the aligners. When you switch to new aligners throughout the treatment process, the discomfort may return, but it should not last for more than a few days at a time.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
The cost of Invisalign treatment is typically similar to that of traditional braces, but because each treatment plan is customized, prices can vary. The good news is that many insurance plans help to cover the cost of Invisalign just as they would with braces or other orthodontic alternatives. Our Dearborn, MI, team will work with your provider to secure the best coverage available to you. For uninsured patients, we work with CareCredit® and LendingClub®, third-party lenders that offer low-interest or interest-free loans so that you can comfortably afford the cost of treatment.
Save on the cost of treatment with our New Patient Special! We offer initial exams and x-rays for just $29.

How to Care for Your Clear Aligners
Remove when eating
Eating or drinking anything but water while wearing Invisalign can damage your aligner and negatively impact your dental health.
Cleaning your aligners as part of your regular brushing and flossing routine is important for your oral health. Avoid using abrasive materials that can damage plastic.
Avoid extreme temperatures
Because Invisalign aligners are made of flexible plastic, they should never be exposed to very hot water during cleaning. Excessive heat can warp the plastic and interrupt your treatment timeline.
