Custom made to fit comfortably and meet your aesthetic goals, Invisalign® clear aligners are more attractive and comfortable than metal orthodontics.

"Let's start off by saying I'm 23 years old haven't been to the dentist and 12 years needed quite a bit of work done.. when I came to this location a week ago I was very nervous and scared not knowing what's to come and afraid of the judgment of my teeth condition, but on my first visit was very surprised on how welcoming and nice front woman were Kelly and Jessica made me feel very welcomed. I was called to the back to meet Doctor Barrett and ms Gracie both amazing women getting right to work while making you feel right at home but also being like a mother and telling you what you need to do lol.. on my second visit I came in to get a root canal and three fillings I was there for 3 hours because it was very busy, it didn't feel like it though I was being talked to Non-Stop and they engage very well into their customers long story short they fixed my three front teeth cavities so now I can smile without feeling judged in a root canal that was needed I feel amazing and I love this location will never go to any other one...."- J.S. / Google / Nov 30, 2019

Several factors will influence the alignment of your teeth: sucking your thumb as a child, genetics, missing one or several teeth, or a traumatic injury to your lower face. The misalignment of your teeth often leads to other oral health problems, like dental malocclusion (a bad bite), abnormal enamel wear, trouble speaking and chewing, as well as jaw pain and toothaches. If your MINT dentist notices signs or symptoms of one of these issues during your dental exam, we may recommend an orthodontic treatment, like Invisalign®.
Orthodontic treatments like Invisalign® are wonderful for both adults and teens who want straighter teeth without the hassle and appearance of traditional braces. Although they do need to be worn most of the time, Invisalign® can be taken out in order to eat and brush your teeth, as well as for special events and playing sports. Far more discreet than metal braces, other people usually will not be able to tell that you are wearing your aligners.
What to Expect
After your consultation, your first Invisalign® trays will be created using digital impressions taken by your MINT dentistry team. When they are ready, you will come back to receive your first aligners and instructions from one of our skilled doctors. You should to wear your aligners the majority of the day for the process to work effectively, ideally taking them out only to eat and brush your teeth. In time, you will move to the next set of aligners as they gently move your teeth closer to their final alignment. You will need to schedule appointments every 4 – 6 weeks to have the fit of your aligners checked and have more digital impressions taken, which will be used to make your next set of aligners. The length of time that you will use Invisalign® will vary based on the original position of your teeth and your cosmetic goals, but most patients wear aligners for around 10 – 18 months.
When your bite is aligned and you are done with your Invisalign® trays, it's important to keep your teeth in place while your gums and jaw adjust. Invisalign® Vivera® retainers help to hold your teeth in place using the same comfortable material as your aligner trays. Each retainer will be made custom at the Invisalign® dental laboratory based on digital impressions taken after your teeth are in the right position. Your dentist will explain how often to wear your retainer and how to care for it once it is shipped to our facility from the Invisalign® dental lab. We will continue to check your bite and alignment at your annual dental exams to ensure they remain straight.
The MINT Commitment
Typically, a portion of the cost your Invisalign® treatment is covered if you are using dental insurance. Our front office will confirm your benefits and calculate your remaining bill. We take most payment methods for patients who don't have dental insurance. During your consultation, we will estimate your treatment costs and ways to make your treatment fit your budget, including flexible payment plans and medical financing. It is important to keep in mind that a confident smile is an investment in yourself. We are committed to helping you find an affordable way to get sexy teeth.
