We Are Open – Safety is Our Top Priority!
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
If your smile is less than perfect because of gaps or crooked teeth, your dentist may be able to correct it without the cumbersome wires, brackets, and rubber bands of traditional braces. Invisalign® plastic aligner trays can transform your smile in a discreet, convenient way that doesn’t interfere with your lifestyle.
How Can Invisalign Straighten Your Teeth?
Invisalign plastic aligner trays are custom-fitted devices that are worn directly over your teeth. A series of Invisalign trays are made at the start of your treatment. Each one is worn for approximately two weeks. As treatment progresses, the trays slowly re-position and straighten your teeth. Dentists use aligners to correct a variety of problems such as malocclusion, crowding, spaces between teeth, and rotated teeth. Because the trays are invisible, no one will know about your treatment unless you tell them.
Is Invisalign Treatment Expensive?
Several factors influence Invisalign cost including the amount of correction needed and how long it will take to achieve it. Many patients obtain Invisalign in Miami Beach for approximately the same amount of money that they would spend on traditional braces. If your budget is tight, our practice offers convenient and flexible payment plans to help you manage your orthodontic expenses.
Invisalign Cost with Insurance
Your dental insurance policy may help you pay for a significant portion of your Invisalign aligner tray treatment costs. To determine the limits of your Invisalign insurance coverage, contact our office, or call your plan provider for more details.
How Long Does It Take to Complete Invisalign Treatment?
Like your Invisalign cost, the length of your treatment will depend on how much orthodontic correction you need. Severely rotated teeth or large gaps may take longer to resolve. The average treatment time for adults and teens with mild or moderate orthodontic conditions is about one year. Patients with severe problems may require up to two years of therapy. Every patient is unique; the best way to determine your treatment time is to schedule a comprehensive evaluation by a dental professional who is experienced in using the Invisalign plastic aligner tray system.
What is Different About Invisalign Dentists?
Invisalign dentists are licensed general dentists and orthodontic specialists who receive additional training in using the Invisalign system to correct mild and moderate orthodontic conditions. Our qualified dentists have the experience and expertise to ensure that you get the best possible results in the shortest amount of time. Contact us today so that we can connect you with a dentist who can give you the smile of your dreams.
Invisalign vs. Braces: Are They Equal?
Invisalign aligner trays can usually correct orthodontic problems just as effectively as metal braces, so you may be faced with a choice of Invisalign vs. braces. Although appearance and self-confidence during treatment is certainly a strong factor, you should also consider the quality of your oral health. When you use Invisalign aligner trays, you remove them before eating or brushing your teeth, so you have full access to all tooth surfaces. You can’t remove braces for oral hygiene, so you must work around awkward brackets and wires. Because Invisalign aligners allow you to clean your teeth more effectively, they can help reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease during treatment. If you have extensive orthodontic problems, metal braces may actually be a better treatment option. Your dentist can help you make the right decision.
More Great Benefits of Invisalign
Invisible aligner trays offer benefits that braces simply can’t match. Here are a few to consider:
- No food or beverage restrictions
- No visible metal in your mouth
- Fewer office visits during treatment
- Easy tray removal and insertion
- Improved self-confidence
- Less irritation of oral tissues
Is Invisalign Right for Every Patient?
Although Invisalign is ideal for adults and teens with common, moderate orthodontic problems, it isn’t appropriate for all patients. People with severe tooth rotation or other complicated conditions may not be good candidates. Children’s orthodontic needs are also too complex and are usually better managed with metal braces. The best way to determine if you are a candidate for aligner trays is to have one of our experienced Invisalign dentists evaluate your needs.
Maintaining Your Teeth After Invisalign Treatment
After successful completion of your treatment, your dentist may recommend wearing Invisalign retainers to prevent your teeth from shifting back into their original positions.
