Is Invisalign Treatment an Alternative to Braces?
When you choose Invisalign, you’ll receive a series of custom-fitted aligners that are designed to gradually move your teeth into place. You’ll wear each set of aligners for two weeks before switching to the next pair. Invisalign works just like traditional metal braces without the hassle of uncomfortable wires or brackets. To learn more about Invisalign, give our office a call to schedule an appointment.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost for Patients?
Multiple factors determine the Invisalign cost, including the complexity of your orthodontic problems and whether your insurance covers clear aligners. During your consultation, Dr. Nguyen will examine your smile and provide an estimate of the final cost. Please give us a call for more information about pricing.
How Long Will I Need to Wear My Invisalign Aligners?
Most adults complete their treatment within 10 months to one year, but some cases can take up to 2 years to resolve. The length of treatment typically depends on the severity of your alignment or bite issues. Dr. Nguyen will create treatment plans
that straighten your smile as quickly as possible.
Comparing Invisalign vs Braces
When making a choice between Invisalign vs Braces, many patients cite appearance as a key reason for selecting clear aligners. However, finding the most effective treatment possible should always be the top priority. Clear aligners are ideal for those with mild to moderate orthodontic problems; your dentist may recommend traditional braces if your problems are extensive. Dr. Nguyen will help you determine which option is best for you.
What Are the Clear Advantages of Invisalign?
Invisalign is a comfortable, virtually invisible way to straighten your smile. Some of the key benefits of clear aligners include:
No metal brackets or wires
Trays can be removed to eat or for special events
No restrictions on eating or drinking
Fewer required dental appointments – most patients only see a dentist every four to six weeks
Am I a Good Candidate for Invisalign Treatment?
If you are an adult or teen with mild or moderate spacing, crowding, or bite issues, you may be a candidate for clear aligners. We typically do not recommend clear aligners for children because their jaws are still developing.
Is Invisalign Insurance Available?
Many insurance providers offer coverage for clear aligners much like they would for traditional braces. Be sure to speak with your provider to see if you qualify for coverage for the Invisalign cost. Even without insurance, affordable orthodontic treatment may be possible with the help of flexible financing. Contact Rosewood Dental for information about dental payment plans.
What Happens After Invisalign?
Dr. Nguyen will recommend that patients use Invisalign retainers after treatment. These appliances keep your teeth from shifting back to the original, misaligned shape. Visiting our office regularly for cleanings and oral cancer screenings will also keep your newly straightened smile healthy.
