How Does Invisalign Work?
Any type of orthodontic treatment works by applying pressure to the teeth to move them into proper alignment over time. But, whereas traditional braces rely on brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear aligner trays that fit snugly over the teeth.
In addition to straightening your teeth invisibly, removable trays also give you the benefit of taking them out before eating or brushing your teeth. And while you’ll need to wear the aligners at least 20 to 22 hours per day to get your results on time, you still have the flexibility to remove them for special events like weddings or job interviews. Another advantage is that Invisalign is often completed faster (the average treatment time is 12 to 18 months as opposed to 18 to 24 months for metal braces).
What Is the Process Like?
It only takes 2 or 3 visits to get started with Invisalign. Here’s what you can expect:
- We’ll start with a consultation to make sure Invisalign is right for you.
- Then we’ll take X-rays and digital impressions and send them to the Invisalign lab to make your aligner trays.
- Next, you’ll return about 3 weeks to pick up your first set of trays. We’ll review how to wear and maintain them, and you’ll leave wearing your first pair.
- You’ll switch to a new set of aligners about every 2 weeks, and will come back for progress visits every 4 to 8 weeks throughout your treatment.
Who Is a Candidate For Invisalign?
Invisalign works for many of the same issues that are treated with metal braces, including underbites, overbites, crossbites, gaps, crowding, and more. With that said, our goal is to make sure you get the best final results, so we may recommend traditional braces for severe cases.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
The cost of Invisalign varies depending on how severe your alignment issues are and how many sets of trays you need. Since each person’s smile is unique, their Invisalign treatment plan and overall fees will be unique as well. But one thing is certain: Making the decision to invest in your oral health and self-confidence will pay off for life!
And since we want to make having a straight, even smile accessible to as many people as possible, we offer a third-party financing option called CareCredit and are also in-network with Delta Dental Premier. Once you’ve had a consultation, we’ll give you an estimate of your cost and discuss insurance benefits or financing as necessary.
