What Are Invisalign Trays?
Invisalign is a personalized clear aligner system that has helped patients of all ages achieve straighter, healthier smiles. With Invisalign treatment, you’ll receive a set of clear aligners that you wear over your teeth for approximately 20-22 hours per day. Every two weeks, you’ll switch to a new set of aligners as your teeth shift to the desired positions. Over time, the clear aligners’ gentle pressure shifts your teeth into the correct position. Unlike traditional braces, aligner trays can be removed when eating and drinking, eliminating the hassle of dietary restrictions.
What Determines the Invisalign Cost?
When braces are necessary, many people wonder if they’ll be able to afford the cost of treatment. Since Invisalign treatment is completely personalized, every patient’s cost will vary. In most cases, the Invisalign cost will depend on the complexity of your alignment issues and how long the aligners will be worn. Your insurance coverage will also help determine your out-of-pocket expenses.
How Long Will I Wear Invisalign?
How long you will require aligners depends on the severity of your case. While most adults finish their treatment within one year, the duration of treatment for teens varies. Our dentists are committed to helping you achieve great results in the shortest amount of time possible. Schedule a consultation to find out how soon you can enjoy a straighter smile.
Where Can I Find Invisalign Dentists?
Only a dentist with the proper training and expertise can treat patients with a clear aligner system. At our practice, you’ll find trained dentists who can properly fit and monitor your aligner trays. If you’re considering getting Invisalign in Baptist, schedule an appointment with one of our dentists to find out if clear aligners are right for you.
Choosing Invisalign vs Braces
When considering the benefits of Invisalign vs braces, many of our patients cite appearance as a primary reason for choosing clear aligners. While metal braces can be highly visible in photos and at social events, clear aligners are almost completely invisible. Plus, they’re completely removable – you’ll be able to enjoy the foods you love and take out your aligners for special occasions. While aligners can correct numerous orthodontic issues, metal braces may be a better choice if your problems are severe.
What Are the Advantages of Invisalign?
Invisalign in Baptist offers patients a metal-free option for achieving a straighter smile. When you choose the clear aligner system, you can receive the following benefits:
- The ability to remove the aligners for special events
- No restrictions on food or beverages
- Fewer required dental visits
- Comfortable, flexible trays that are easy to clean
- Improved dental hygiene
Is Invisalign Right for Me?
Treatment with clear aligners is an excellent choice for adults and teens with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, including spacing, crowding, or bite problems. We typically do not recommend clear aligners for children since their jaws are still developing. Our Invisalign dentists can examine your smile and determine whether a clear aligner system meets your needs.
What Invisalign Insurance Is Available?
In some cases, insurance providers offer coverage for clear aligners much like they would for traditional braces. Please get in touch with your dental insurance provider to find out to what extent they can assist you with the Invisalign cost. You can also contact our office to learn about our financing options.
What Happens After Invisalign?
After you have completed your full set of aligners, you may require Invisalign retainers to keep your newly aligned teeth looking great. Our Invisalign dentists also recommend that patients continue to visit our office for regular dental exams and cleanings. If you’re ready to experience a straighter smile, please call us today to get started with clear aligners.
