If you’re considering orthodontic treatment, Invisalign has likely crossed your mind. You’ve seen the commercials or heard the ads about Invisalign – the revolutionary way to straighten your teeth while avoiding metal braces. But, is Invisalign right for you?
Surprising to patients, Invisalign works for most orthodontic treatment cases. Invisalign treats overly crooked teeth, crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, overbites, crossbites and underbites. If you’re considering Invisalign, keep reading to see what the hype is all about!
What Is Invisalign and How Does It Work?
Invisalign corrects your teeth without anyone noticing! A series of custom, clear aligners are created from smooth, clear plastic based off your treatment plan. You’ll receive a series of aligners, and as you move from set to set, your teeth will gradually move into their desired position.
You’ll wear your Invisalign aligners from 20 to 22 hours a day only removing them to eat, drink, brush and floss. There’s no restriction on what you can eat or drink! Just take your Invisalign aligners out to enjoy foods like popcorn or drinks like coffee, and pop them in right after.
Your initial appointment consists of a 3D X-ray scan of your teeth to map out the process of your teeth movement. From there, your orthodontist creates a treatment plan and comes up with a projected timeframe. Your aligners are custom made and you’ll only need to visit your orthodontist about every eight weeks.
Currently, Invisalign treats around 3 million people around the world! This treatment option works great for teens and adults.
Behl Orthodontics understands that having metal braces as an adult isn’t very appealing. Whether you’re straightening your teeth for the first time or restarting treatment for shifted teeth, Invisalign is the way to confidently get your dream smile!
When you choose Invisalign in at Behl Orthodontics, you’ll have less appointments than traditional metal braces and will smile knowing no one knows you’re straightening your teeth.
Let’s face it. With school, dating, sports and hanging out with friends, getting metal braces isn’t the first things teenagers want to do. Luckily, Invisalign Teen allows teens to straighten their teeth without their friends knowing and continue doing what they love without a problem. Teens can eat with freedom, play sports and instruments and go to prom without being self-conscious.
One hesitation Behl Orthodontics hears about Invisalign for teens is that they won’t wear their aligners reliably. Invisalign Teen is a bit different from traditional Invisalign. These clear aligners come with compliance indicators that wear over time. So, by the end of the two week period for a set of aligners, the blue indicator should be almost gone. This tells parents if their teenager has been wearing the aligner for the recommended 20 to 22 hours per day.
Cost of Invisalign
The cost of Invisalign varies case by case and depending on the severity of your mouth. Typically, Invisalign costs about the same as metal braces.
