What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment method that allows patients to achieve a straighter, healthier smile without the traditional brackets and wires. It’s a great option for image-conscious patients, those who don’t have time for frequent orthodontic appointments, and those who don’t want to change their diets.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear, plastic trays to gradually shift teeth into their ideal position. Each aligner repositions the teeth a step closer to the desired end results. After about two weeks of wear, you simply exchange your current aligners for the next set. Every six to eight weeks, you’ll visit our office for checkups, so we can ensure your teeth are moving according to plan. In just eight to eighteen months, patients typically achieve their desired results.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
The cost of Invisalign varies from patient to patient. It will depend on the number of aligner trays you need, whether you shift top or bottom teeth or both, and the length of treatment time. During your treatment planning consultation, we’ll review the costs associated with your plan and help you to budget for these services. We are also happy to process and file your PPO insurance claims to help you offset the costs of dental care.
Will I Have to Wear a Retainer?
Even with Invisalign, patients need to wear retainers. These appliances hold your teeth in position while the roots bond with the gums and bone tissue, so your bite will not shift back out of alignment. We use clear retainers whenever possible that will look just like your Invisalign trays.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Before we begin your Invisalign plan, we will review all of your treatment options to ensure this is the right orthodontic solution for your unique smile. Some of the reasons patients choose Invisalign rather than more traditional orthodontic options include:
- Cosmetic appearance – your clear alignment tray will look just like your flawless smile throughout treatment. We can even offer clear retainers, so the entirety of your orthodontic plan is completely cosmetically flawless.
- Speed of treatment – most traditional orthodontic options take 18 to 36 months to complete, but Invisalign plans are almost always finished in less than 18 months, making them significantly quicker treatments. Plus, patients need to visit us less frequently for examinations to ensure their treatment is progressing according to plan, saving time throughout the course of treatment.
- Comfort – brackets and wires can irritate soft tissue throughout traditional braces treatment, and the adjustment visits are often painful for patients. Invisalign trays are crafted from smooth plastic, ensuring comfort throughout the treatment process.
- Convenience – with Invisalign you can continue to eat all your favorite foods and brush and floss your teeth as usual.
