What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is different from traditional braces in a number of ways:
- Invisalign uses a system of trays that fit tightly over the teeth to press them into the desired configuration. These trays are removable and can be taken off and replaced as many times as desired. Braces, on the other hand, are permanently applied with wire and brackets and must be removed by a professional at the end of the treatment.
- Braces are immediately obvious to everyone with whom you come in contact. Invisalign cannot usually be detected without a close inspection of your teeth.
Your Invisalign program will typically include a series of trays that must be used in the assigned order. After two weeks with one tray, you will move to the next in the sequence to provide ever-increasing alignment for your teeth.
What Will My Invisalign Treatment Cost?
Your Invisalign dentists will provide you with an overview of costs during your initial consultations. In most cases, the trays used for Invisalign cost about the same as traditional metal braces and offer far greater convenience and discretion for wearers. Our offices will work with you to reduce your Invisalign cost and to ensure that you can afford this cutting-edge orthodontic system.
How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Usually Take?
Depending on a number of factors, you can expect to wear your Invisalign trays for about a year. Invisalign retainers are available for patients who require just a little realignment to look their best. More serious orthodontic issues typically take longer to resolve and may require as long as two years when using the Invisalign system.
What Happens at my First Appointment?
Your first visit with our Invisalign dentists typically includes a variety of tests that may include bitewing X-rays and scans. This will help our dental professionals decide on the right Invisalign regimen to correct any orthodontic problems quickly and effectively. If Invisalign is suitable for correcting your issues, we will order your trays and begin the process right away.
Why You Should Choose Invisalign vs. Braces
When considering the merits of Invisalign vs. braces, cost is usually not a factor. The two methods of orthodontic correction generally cost about the same and provide the same results for most patients. The near-invisible plastic used to fabricate Invisalign trays is far more discreet than the metallic components of traditional braces. Because Invisalign is designed for easy removal, it is far more convenient for everyday use.
Advantages of Invisalign
Correcting your orthodontic problems with help from Invisalign can allow you to enjoy a higher degree of self-confidence when meeting new people and interacting with those around you. Invisalign is also conducive to better dental hygiene and more effective brushing and flossing when compared to traditional braces.
Is Invisalign a Good Choice for Me?
If you are concerned about maintaining your current appearance while correcting issues with the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, Invisalign is a good choice for your needs. The Invisalign system is ideal for teens who are concerned about the effect metal braces may have on their looks and for anyone else who wants to maintain a consistent appearance at work, at home, and in social situations.
Is Invisalign Covered by Dental Insurance?
Some or all of your Invisalign cost may be covered by your dental plan. Our expert administrators will work with you and your insurance company to make sure that you pay as little as possible. If Invisalign insurance is not available, our easy payment plans can help to make these orthodontic procedures more affordable for your family.
