Many of our patients were not candidates for traditional braces when they were young, however, today they seek to have straighter teeth. Another pool of individuals may actually have worn braces at one time but still hope for straighter teeth. Through advanced technology at DentalWorks - Turkey Creek at Knoxville, TN, custom straightening trays, such as Invisalign, can correct the teeth. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made aligner trays to gently and slowly move the teeth straight. These almost invisible fit snugly on the teeth and are worn for at least 22 hours a day. They are typically only taken off for teeth brushing, eating, and drinking certain liquids. Invisalign from our dentists at DentalWorks - Turkey Creek can rapidly enhance the teeth for a dazzling smile.

"Awesome and very friendly team! Everyone was so nice and caring. I was a new patient coming in with a cracked tooth. I had an enormous amount of pain, and they were very gentle. Dentist provided me a couple options and provided me her best opinion with pros and cons. The doctor even provided me with a contact number to call her directly if my pain became too intense over the holiday weekend. Highly recommend. Dr. Borale is wonderful! Donna, in the front office, was the best!"- J.A. / Google / Nov 21, 2018

What to Expect
If it is decided that Invisalign is the recommended option for teeth straightening needs, treatment begins with specialized X-rays of the mouth so that the trays can be manufactured. Our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Turkey Creek help each patient to understand how to wear and care for their aligners, and explain to the patient about the importance of making sure keep in the aligners in for 20-22 hours a day. Straightening aligners are to be worn for approximately 10-14 days before the next set of aligners are then provided. This is based on the how quickly the teeth become aligned. At each check-up at DentalWorks - Turkey Creek, our dentists will provide the patient an accurate measure of how many more weeks they will need to wear Invisalign.
After the teeth are straightened with Invisalign, it is necessary that the patient wear an Invisalign Vivera retainer device to continue to keep the results. Most patients need to wear their retainer in place at night. To ensure the teeth remain straight, patients should continue to visit our dentists at DentalWorks - Turkey Creek twice a year and proactively incorporate a diligent home oral regime.
The fee to cover Invisalign will be determined based on the complexity pertaining to the orthodontic case, and the amount of aligner phases that will be recommended. Insurance may cover half or more of the expense. This varies depending on the patient's coverage. The staff at DentalWorks - Turkey Creek will solidify what the patient's benefits are so that an accurate fee can be detailed by our dentists during the patient's initial appointment.
