Are you self-conscious of your crooked smile but hate the thought of wearing uncomfortable and noticeable braces?
Invisalign® clear aligners are a comfortable and effective orthodontic alternative to traditional braces.
Dr. Bruce J. Wilderman can discreetly straighten your teeth with Invisalign at his practice in Doylestown, PA.
What Is Invisalign And How Does It Work?
Invisalign uses a series of custom-fitted clear aligners that apply constant yet gentle pressure to your teeth to bring them into alignment. This orthodontic system can correct mild to moderate crookedness, crowding, gaps, and bite issues. You will be given several sets of aligners for your treatment. Each will be worn for about two weeks before you move on to the next in the series. In total, it will take about 12–18 months to see your intended results.

Did You Know Orthodontics Can Prevent Health Issues?
Orthodontics like Invisalign and traditional braces give you a straighter smile and prevent oral health issues associated with misaligned teeth. For example, overlapping teeth can make flossing and brushing more challenging, increasing your risk of tooth decay.
A misaligned bite can also put excess pressure on your temporomandibular joints (TMJs). Your jaw will naturally try to overcompensate for a misaligned bite, but over time, this causes significant strain that can lead to TMJ disorder. Symptoms include headaches and a locking jaw joint.
You can take a proactive stand against these issues by consulting us about Invisalign and metal braces.

Tips For Successful Treatment
Be Aware of What You Drink
You should avoid drinking acidic, sugary, or dark-colored liquids while wearing your aligners, because this could cause the aligners to become stained. Sugar and acids can also become trapped in your aligners and affect your teeth. You should also avoid hot beverages, which can warp your aligners.
Record your Daily Use
To get the most out of your Invisalign treatment, you have to wear your clear aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. The time you spend eating and drinking can add up, potentially cutting into the amount of time you should be wearing your retainer. Keep track of how much time you spend without your aligner each day to stay on target.
Dr. Wilderman will schedule check-up appointments at our Doylestown, PA, office during and after your Invisalign treatment. This is also an opportunity to address any issues that develop and make necessary adjustments.
My Aligners Have Been Damaged.
What Should I Do?
If your aligners have been lost or damaged, call our Doylestown, PA, office right away. Depending on where you are in your treatment, Dr. Wilderman will either send you a new set that is the same as the lost or damaged trays, or advise that you wear your next trays. You should not go without wearing any aligners because this can delay and alter the outcome of your treatment.
What to Expect After Invisalign Treatment
The results from your clear orthodontics can last a lifetime if you follow your post-treatment instructions. Whether you wear Invisalign or traditional braces, you will have to wear a retainer (usually while sleeping) after completing your treatment to help keep your teeth in their proper positions. You may be able to wear the last aligner tray in the series as a retainer.
Doylestown Patients Recommend Dr. Wilderman
"This is the best dentist I have had in my entire life. The office is friendly, accommodating and spotless. AND, everyone there listens to you - especially Dr. Wilderman. I recommend him to everyone. You won't be disappointed." Earlene J.
What Affects Invisalign Cost?
Severity of Misalignment
Patients with minor misalignment require less up-front planning and will achieve their desired results more quickly, both of which reduce cost. Those with more complicated cases of misalignment will require more advanced treatment with specialized aligners and a greater number of appointments at our Doylestown office, which raises the overall cost.
Most patients will need to wear the aligners for around 12–18 months, similar to conventional braces. Shorter treatments require fewer sets of custom-created aligners, meaning lower costs overall. You can save money and achieve your results quicker by closely following your dentist's instructions and wearing the aligners for the required amount of time each day.
Most insurance plans cover orthodontic treatments including Invisalign, up to a certain amount. To ensure you get the most coverage from your insurance plan, our Doylestown staff will work closely with you to correctly submit the necessary documentation. We want you to pay as little out-of-pocket as possible so you can enjoy the benefits of Invisalign treatment on any budget.
Can I Finance My Invisalign Treatment?
If you need to finance any portion of your Invisalign treatment not covered by insurance, Dr. Wilderman and our staff will work to help you choose a financing plan that is right for you. Our office accepts credit cards and CareCredit® financing, which can make any out-of-pocket costs more manageable. Our Philadelphia staff is committed to making the treatment you need a comfortable fit for your budget.
