How Invisalign Works
Invisalign can help patients with crooked teeth, overcrowding, gaps, and misaligned bites enjoy straighter, healthier, and more comfortable smiles. It accomplishes this via a series of plastic, transparent aligner trays that you wear over your teeth. These trays are designed to be worn in a pre-determined order, with each one being a slightly different shape that shifts a small section of your smile at a time. Each set of aligners should be worn for at least 22 hours a day for about two weeks at a time before switching to the next pair. The average treatment timeline for Invisalign is only eight to 18 months, compared to the two or three years it usually takes for metal braces to achieve the same results.
Indications for Invisalign
Are you wondering whether Invisalign is right for you? It most likely is! While the only way to know for sure is to attend a consultation with a dentist in Beverly Hills, Invisalign can actually correct most of the same orthodontic issues that braces can. Depending on the severity of these issues, Invisalign can fix:
Gaps Between Teeth
Large spaces between teeth are often not considered conventionally attractive, but it’s far worse than that. Bits of food can get caught in these gaps and attract harmful bacteria, leading to bad breath as well as a higher risk for tooth decay. Invisalign is a highly efficient way of closing these gaps.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, teeth that are too close together might be harder to effectively clean. Invisalign can bring your teeth into their proper alignment to make brushing and flossing easier.
Mild to moderate cases of overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite can be corrected with Invisalign. Doing so will relieve uneven stress on your jaw joints, reducing your risk of chronic teeth grinding and TMJ disorder.
The Benefits of Invisalign
It’s easy to see why more and more patients are choosing to straighten their teeth with Invisalign rather than traditional braces. They provide a number of unique benefits:
- The see-through aligners practically disappear once they’re placed over your teeth.
- Because the trays are removable, you can eat, brush, and floss as you would normally.
- The smooth plastic of the aligners won’t irritate your lips, gums, and other soft tissues as much as braces do.
- Invisalign usually takes less time than braces.
- Your checkups throughout treatment will be shorter.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
The details of each Invisalign treatment vary widely, so it stands to reason that the cost of Invisalign varies as well. It will depend on factors like the severity of your orthodontic issues, the number of sets of trays you’ll require, and whether you stay on track with your treatment plan. We’ll create a personalized treatment timeline and provide pricing information during your consultation. To make Invisalign affordable, we welcome dental insurance and offer low-interest financing through CareCredit.
