Certified Invisalign Providers in Livonia and Farmington Hills, MI

Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation at Laurich Dentistry can determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.

What is it?

Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to administer Invisalign treatment—including Drs. Dennis and Matt Laurich.

Why would I want it?

Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time at our Livonia or Farmington Hills, MI dental office getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How does it work?

You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit our Livonia or Farmington Hills dental offices about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

Do I need to wear a retainer?

The most important aspect of all orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign, is wearing a retainer. Eighty percent of orthodontic treatment will relapse if a retainer is not worn. If you want to keep your straight teeth, you need to wear your retainer!

What makes Invisalign at Laurich Dentistry unique?

Getting Invisalign at Laurich Dentistry is not only a commitment to getting a straight smile; you’ll leave our office with a healthy smile as well. Drs. Dennis and Matt Laurich will monitor the health of your teeth and gums at each visit to make sure you don’t get any cavities or show signs of gum disease.

At an Invisalign consultation or during your routine hygiene visit, Dr. Laurich can perform a tooth-alignment assessment to determine your success with Invisalign. We also collaborate with local orthodontists, providing you with a true multi-disciplinary treatment experience.
