How Does Invisalign Straighten Teeth?
The Invisalign treatment process involves wearing clear aligner trays over your teeth. The aligners are custom-made to fit your mouth, and are designed to place the right amount of pressure on the teeth to steadily shift your teeth into alignment. You’ll change into a new set of aligners about every two weeks.
Will Invisalign Cost More Than Braces?
The average Invisalign cost is very comparable to the price of regular metal braces; however, your final costs are determined by your specific alignment problems and your total length of treatment. During your appointment, our dentists can provide information about your expected costs and outline your treatment plan. Call our office for more information about our flexible payment plans and financing options.
How Long Is Treatment with Invisalign?
The complexity of your alignment issues is the main factor in determining the length of your Invisalign treatment. In general, most adults wear Invisalign aligners for about 12-18 months, but total treatment time can vary for teens. To help maintain your results after completing treatment, we recommend wearing Invisalign retainers.
Who Are Invisalign Dentists?
To achieve the best possible results with Invisalign, it’s necessary to receive treatment from a licensed orthodontist or general dentist who has completed training with orthodontic aligner trays. At our clinic, our Invisalign dentists have the skills and experience needed to help you achieve beautiful, straighter teeth.
Invisalign vs Braces: Which Is Better?
Since the aligner trays are nearly invisible, one of the primary benefits of Invisalign is its discreet appearance. When used to treat mild or moderate orthodontic issues, both Invisalign and traditional braces are equally as effective. However, traditional braces are the most effective treatment option for complex or extensive orthodontic corrections. A consultation with our dentists can help you choose between Invisalign vs braces. Call our office today to make an appointment.
What Are the Advantages of Invisalign?
For many patients, Invisalign has definite advantages compared to metal braces. Take a look at the following benefits of clear aligner trays:
- The trays can be removed at any time.
- There are no metal wires or brackets to irritate your gums.
- Eat and drink whatever you want without any restrictions.
- Fewer visits to our dentist office (approximately every four to six weeks).
- You can smile confidently without noticeable metal wires.
- Easier brushing and flossing.
Who Can Get Invisalign?
Invisalign can be an effective treatment option for adults and teens looking to straighten their smile, but not everyone is considered a good candidate. Children are usually not considered for Invisalign because their teeth are still developing. People with severe spacing, crowding, or bite problems may not be ideal candidates for Invisalign. Make an appointment today with experienced Invisalign dentists to learn if you’re a candidate for Invisalign.
How Expensive Is Invisalign with Insurance?
Many insurance companies provide coverage for the Invisalign cost and other orthodontic treatments. Ask your insurance provider about your Invisalign insurance or call our office with any questions you have about your coverage.
How Will Invisalign Affect My Life?
Treatment with Invisalign in Woodbridge fits easily into your everyday life. You’ll remove the aligner trays while eating, so you won’t have to make any alterations to your diet. Chewing gum should be avoided while wearing the aligners, and if you chew tobacco or smoke, the trays may become discolored. You can clean your aligner trays with the cleaning system available at our dental office, or you can simply brush the trays with toothpaste and rinse them with warm water. To help you achieve the straighter smile you’ve always wanted, we recommend wearing the aligner trays for 20-22 hours each day.
