For many years, traditional braces were the only way to straighten teeth. These days, Invisalign offers patients a completely different approach to orthodontic treatment. Rather than using metal wires and brackets to push and pull teeth into place, Invisalign uses a series of virtually invisible clear aligners that gently shift your teeth into their proper positions.

The Advantages of Invisalign

More teens and adults are opting for Invisalign instead of getting traditional metal braces. Here are some of the benefits of Invisalign to consider:

  • Comfort – Invisalign aligners are made with a smooth, thin plastic material that fits right against your teeth, making them less irritating than metal brackets.
  • Convenience – You don’t need to change your lifestyle with Invisalign. Because you can remove your aligners whenever you need to, you can keep eating all of your favorite foods and brushing and flossing as usual. 
  • Predictability – Invisalign yields more predictable results than traditional braces because the system utilizes sophisticated software that allows your dentist to plan the movements of each individual tooth. This means that during your consultation, you can see a preview of what your smile will look like after your treatment is complete!
  • Aesthetics – Of course, one of the most common reasons for choosing Invisalign is because the aligners are virtually invisible. Your coworkers, friends, and classmates won’t even realize that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.

        The Invisalign Process

        Before your Invisalign treatment begins, you’ll come in for a consultation. During this appointment, we will examine your teeth and jaw, discuss your treatment goals, and determine whether Invisalign is a good fit for you. If you’re interested in moving forward, we will take photos and digital impressions of your teeth, allowing us to create a 3D model of your smile. This model is used to plan your treatment, then our plans are sent to Invisalign, where your aligners are made just for you.

        Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks, or as directed, and then you’ll switch to the next set. You’ll need to follow up with us every six weeks so we can monitor your progress and make sure your treatment is on the right track. Once your Invisalign treatment is complete, we’ll provide you with custom retainers to help maintain your results.

        Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign

        Is Invisalign cheaper than braces?
        Invisalign is less expensive than clear (ceramic) braces and lingual braces and its price is comparable to that of traditional metal braces.

        Can your teeth move back after Invisalign?
        Just like any other orthodontic treatment, your teeth may move back if you don’t wear your retainers as directed.

        How long does Invisalign treatment take?
        Invisalign treatment typically ranges between nine and 15 months, but this depends upon the amount of correction and number of aligners needed.

        Does insurance cover Invisalign?
        Dental insurance plans can vary from one provider to the next, so it’s a good idea to verify your benefits with your insurer. That said, most plans that cover orthodontic treatment will cover Invisalign up to the cost of metal braces, but this isn’t always the case.
