Do Straight Teeth Matter?
While you may be considering Invisalign for aesthetic reasons, straightening your teeth is also important for maintaining your dental health. When your teeth are improperly aligned, it is easier for food debris to get trapped between teeth, potentially leading to cavities, gum disease and other complications. Bite issues can lead to teeth grinding and jaw troubles as well. Bringing your teeth and bite into proper alignment can reduce or even eliminate these problems and make your oral care routine much easier.
How Invisalign Braces Work
Invisalign does not involve brackets and wires but uses a series of clear aligners to gently guide teeth into place. We'll start by using an iTero® scanner to make a digital map of your teeth rather than taking molded impressions. We can then design your aligners based on these scans and even show you how your smile will look when treatment is complete.
As you progress through your orthodontic treatment, each new set of aligners will move your teeth closer and closer to the target position. The removable aligners allow you to progress treatment at home without needing a dental visit every time. We'll also include free whitening gel to use in the trays to brighten your smile while straightening your teeth.
The length of your treatment plan will depend on several factors, including the extent of the misalignment and whether you're compliant with wearing your aligners. At the end of your treatment, we can provide Vivera® retainers to keep your teeth in their new position so you can maintain the results long-term.
Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
Many teens and adults are reluctant to spend two years with traditional braces, and Invisalign can be an attractive alternative. Invisalign works best in mild to moderate cases, though our dentist may offer it for some severe cases as well. We'll carefully evaluate your smile and let you know if you would benefit from Invisalign during your initial consultation.
We recommend Invisalign braces for adults and older teens who have demonstrated responsibility. Even though the aligners are removable, they must be worn for at least 22 hours a day to be effective, so compliance is essential to achieving the straight smile you desire. Patients must be willing to commit to wearing the aligners the majority of the time and must have the responsibility to follow through.
Benefits of Invisalign
The clear, metal-free design of Invisalign offers several advantages, and it's easy to see why more and more patients choose this as their preferred orthodontic treatment. Here are some of the advantages of Invisalign that you can enjoy:
- Shorter average treatment times
- Virtually invisible to others
- No need to avoid certain foods
- Easy to clean
- Fewer visits to the dentist
If you're just starting to explore the idea of Invisalign, you likely have questions. Our friendly team is happy to provide whatever information you're looking for. Some common question we receive from our patients include:
Your treatment length depends on the severity of your orthodontic issues, but the average treatment time is 12-18 months. Typically, you'll begin seeing significant results in as little as 6 months, with full results developing over the course of your treatment. Our dentist will provide a full treatment plan during your initial consultation, including the expected treatment time.
Since everyone's bite situation is unique, the cost of treatment will also vary. It will depend on how many aligners you'll need, the overall length of your treatment, and whether any additional treatments or appliances are needed. We'll provide a clear price breakdown so that you know the cost ahead of time and can make an informed decision about your treatment.
To get the best results, you'll need to wear your aligners for 22 hours each day, only removing the trays when eating or brushing your teeth. While it won't ruin your treatment plan if you occasionally come in a bit under this length of time, it is best to stick with it as much as possible to maintain your progress and complete your treatment on time.
