Invisalign® has revolutionized orthodontic treatment by offering patients a completely new way to straighten teeth. Instead of using a system of brackets and wires to push and pull teeth into proper alignment, Invisalign® gently and gradually shifts teeth into new positions using a series of plastic aligners. Because the aligners are made with thin, clear plastic, Invisalign® is practically invisible.
Of course, aesthetics aren’t the only reason to choose Invisalign®. Patients also appreciate that their aligners are more comfortable than braces, require no emergency appointments for broken brackets or bent wires, and can be removed for eating and brushing. Best of all, Invisalign® is just as effective as conventional braces for most patients.
The Invisalign® Process
If you’re a good candidate for Invisalign®, the first step in treatment is taking photos and digital impressions. This lets you see a preview of what your smile will look like once treatment is complete and it’s also important for designing your aligners. Digital impressions let us create a three-dimensional model of your teeth and jaw on our computer that we use to plan the precise movements of each tooth throughout your treatment.
Once your treatment is planned, Invisalign® will fabricate your custom-made aligners and send them to our office. Every two weeks, or as directed, you’ll switch to the next set of aligners right at home, with each set bringing you a little bit closer to your beautiful new smile!
Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign®
How much does it cost to get Invisalign®?
The cost of Invisalign® before dental insurance is between $3000 and $7000. Teeth that need a significant amount of orthodontic correction require more aligners and a longer treatment time, which results in a higher price.
Is Invisalign® cheaper than braces?
The answer to this depends on the type of braces being compared. Invisalign® is less expensive than lingual braces (braces that are affixed to the backs of the teeth) and ceramic or clear braces, but the price is usually comparable to or slightly more than metal braces.
Which is better, braces or Invisalign®?
There are some orthodontic cases in which braces are a better choice, but for most patients, braces and Invisalign® work equally well. This means the answer to this question comes down to your personal preferences and lifestyle. Most patients feel that Invisalign® is better because it’s comfortable, convenient, and discreet.
Do you wear Invisalign® all day?
Invisalign® aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours, but ideally, you should only take them out for eating, brushing, and flossing. Your aligners only work when you wear them, so taking them out often will extend your treatment time.
Is Invisalign® a permanent fix?
Yes, as long as you wear your retainer as instructed once you complete your treatment, Invisalign® offers permanent results. Patients who don’t wear their retainers may experience orthodontic relapse.
