Dr. Kenneth Henley is a Certified Invisalign Provider

Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation at our Omaha dental office can determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.

Invisalign Treatment at Armbrust Dental

Dr. Henley has 29 years of experience as a dentist, and has been treating orthodontic cases as a general dentist for 27 years. This allows us to not only align your teeth but maintain the health of your teeth as well, all under one roof. Our office is based on personal service and we take that very seriously. We are a small office which gives us the luxury of giving more personalized service, including Invisalign treatment. As a certified Invisalign Preferred Provider, we are committed to remaining up to date and knowledgeable as to what Invisalign treatment can do for our patients.

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 dentists and orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to administer Invisalign treatment.

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 in our Omaha 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 Armbrust Dental 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.

Is Invisalign right for you?

Anyone with crowding or spaces can be a good candidate for Invisalign, but we especially like those whose malocclusion is causing difficult-to-clean areas or problems with tooth wear because of improperly aligned teeth. These situations can lead to more serious problems down the road.

Often, people are concerned how their teeth look but there are hidden and often over-looked health benefits to straighter teeth. During your consultation, we’ll discuss things like how properly aligned teeth will function, last longer, and be easier to clean and maintain, in addition to being beautiful.
