Invisalign® Clear Aligners in Nampa, ID
A Convenient Alternative to Braces
For many years, metal braces have been the most popular and reliable way to straighten your teeth. Though they’re still an effective option, advancements in technology have resulted in the creation of a more convenient alternative — Invisalign.
Invisalign aligners are clear and removable, so you can live without restrictions and smile with confidence. Best of all, Invisalign straightens your teeth up to two times faster than metal braces.
Invisalign vs. Braces
Invisalign offers several unique advantages that traditional braces can’t match, including:
- Discreet — The clear aligners are virtually invisible when you smile.
- Removable — You can take your aligners out before meals, allowing you to enjoy all your favorite foods and drinks.
- Fast — Invisalign treatment can be finished in just 12 months, up to two times faster than metal braces.
- Comfortable — Each set of aligners is uniquely customized to fit your teeth perfectly.
The Invisalign Treatment Process
The first step of Invisalign treatment is your free consultation with Dr. Bingham. During this visit, he’ll examine your teeth and determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you. He’ll also take a digital 3D impression of your smile and send this data to a laboratory, where it’ll be used to craft your custom aligners.
After you receive your first trays, you’ll switch them out for new ones about every two weeks. Each set of aligners is designed to only act on certain teeth, gently shifting them into the desired position until your desired results are achieved. Typically, Dr. Bingham can complete your treatment in just 12 to 15 months.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Invisalign hurt?
Since the aligners are customized to fit your teeth, Invisalign is much more comfortable than traditional braces. You also won’t have to worry about metal wires poking your cheeks and gums, or painful bracket adjustments. You may experience some mild discomfort when you first start treatment, but this should fade in a few days at most.
Is Invisalign covered by insurance?
With most insurance providers, you’ll get the same coverage for Invisalign that you would for braces. Typically, this means your insurance will pay for all or most of your treatment, depending on the terms of your plan. If you have any questions about your insurance benefits, our team will be happy to assist you.
How do I clean and maintain my aligners?
Invisalign aligners are much easier to keep clean than metal braces. All you need to do is brush your aligners every morning when you wake up and every night before you go to bed.
It’s also crucial that you remember to take out your aligners before meals and brush your teeth before putting them back in. This will prevent food crumbs and bacteria from getting trapped in your teeth and causing an infection.
Can I remove my braces and get Invisalign?
In most cases, yes! Many patients who are tired of the hassles that come with metal braces ask if they can switch to Invisalign. The only way to find out is by scheduling a free consultation with Dr. Bingham. During this visit, he’ll examine your teeth and determine if Invisalign will be an effective treatment for you.
