Invisalign consists of custom-made aligners. The aligners are a plastic base and are transparent, making them the number one reason for their popularity. Invisalign aligner trays require replacement every two weeks. Additionally, they are completely removable, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods with no hassles. The aligners place the right amount of pressure on your teeth, exerting more in each aligner replacement. The pressure helps with shifting your teeth into the correct position.
Aligners are custom made to fit the structure of your teeth perfectly. With that being said, the cost will vary for every person. The main factor that determines how much your treatment may be will be the extent of your dental problems. However, our team offers payments options when it comes to Invisalign.
Duration of the Invisalign Treatment
Our average patient has completed their treatment within the first year, although the time span will vary depending on your specific dental issues. While our dentist is conducting your consultation, you can be provided with a realistic estimate of how long the treatment will take.
Below is a list of the benefits Invisalign has to offer:
Your oral hygiene is easily maintained
The aligners may be removed at any time
No uncomfortable metal brackets or wiring
Retainer After Invisalign
Our dentist will recommend wearing retainers, once you have completed your Invisalign treatment, to keep your teeth in place. Additionally, our dentist may suggest scheduling more frequent appointments for teeth cleaning, to maintain excellent results.
Invisalign is NOT for everyone
The optimal candidate for Invisalign would be someone with slight alignment problems. This treatment is not recommended for children.
