What is Invisalign ?
Invisalign is the clear way to straighten teeth without braces, using aligners. Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing; and you can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth; there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions.
Will People Notice?
Dr. Marta Baird is certified by Align Technology and has attended various workshops and seminars on the Invisalign system.

Frequently Asked Questions about Invisalign
How much does Invisalign cost?
At Baird Orthodontics, Invisalign costs the same or sometimes even less than traditional braces. We want to help our patients choose the treatment that is right for them.
What do I need to get started?
Our initial exam is offered at no charge and is necessary to determine your treatment plan. Complimentary x-rays and photos are taken so that, if possible, a complete diagnosis can be given that day. If treatment is indicated, an appointment for the iTero scan can be scheduled as soon as possible.
When do I get my aligners?
After the 3D scan of your teeth is taken, the file is sent to Invisalign. Working with Invisalign, Dr. Baird determines how your finished result will be accomplished. Once the treatment plan is finalized, the aligners are fabricated and shipped. The normal time is 5-7 weeks.
How often will I need to be seen for appointments?
Each aligner tray set is worn for approximately two weeks. Dr. Baird will give you 3 to 4 sets at a time, so generally appointments are every 6 to 8 weeks.
