Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign Treatment

Anyone who would like to have their teeth straightened in a less noticeable way than metal braces should consider Invisalign. This is a more modern system that has helped many patients straighten their teeth in a more convenient way than traditional braces.

The Invisalign System

Everyone is familiar with traditional metal braces that rely upon metal wires and brackets to shift teeth into their correct positions. Although there are some horror stories from the past about traditional braces, today’s braces are less obtrusive and more comfortable. However, for many people, Invisalign offers some clear advantages.

The Invisalign system uses clear plastic aligners that fit snugly over the teeth to straighten them over time. About every two weeks, you would start wearing a new set of aligners until your treatment is complete.

What are the advantages of Invisalign over braces?

Some of the advantages of Invisalign over braces include:

  • Clear plastic. Virtually undetectable.
  • More comfortable. No wires to poke your mouth.
  • No food restrictions. Repeat. No food restrictions 

Invisalign Cost

Invisalign normally costs around the same amount as traditional braces, although there is a good deal of variation, depending upon different factors.

To determine the cost of your Invisalign treatment, contact your dentist or orthodontist to schedule a consultation. They can also give you a “sneak preview” of what your teeth will look like when your Invisalign treatment is complete. 

No Food Restrictions

One key advantage of Invisalign over traditional braces is the fact that the aligners are conveniently removable. Just be sure to replace them promptly after you have eaten food or cleaned your teeth.

More Comfortable

Although there may be a brief adjustment period when you are first fitted with your Invisalign aligners, the overall process is extremely comfortable. Your plastic aligners will be smooth and individually crafted to closely fit the unique contours of your teeth and gums.

Virtually Undetectable 

If you’re looking for a system for straightening your teeth in a non-obtrusive way, look no further than Invisalign. The clear plastic aligners are see-through, and if you’re still worried about them being noticeable during social events, you can remove them for a short period of time.

Ease of Cleaning

Traditional braces can be a pain to clean. All of those metal wires and brackets must be brushed and flossed around, and it’s not uncommon to leave some food particles behind that could lead to tooth decay.

To clean your teeth, or the aligners themselves, just remove your aligners and replace them when you are finished. One caution, however, about removing your Invisalign aligners: Always replace them when you are done, as they must be worn 22 hours daily to stick with your treatment plan and avoid an extended treatment time.
