Are you looking for a discreet way to correct dental problems? Invisalign is the perfect answer. Find out everything you need to know about this brace system below.
Invisalign is a revolutionary brace system that perfects your teeth without the metal braces. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign uses clear aligners, which is invisible, as the name suggests. This brace system is so discreet that only the wearer is aware of its presence on the teeth.
It works with the same principle as metal braces. The clear aligners are designed to apply consistent pressure, so it repositions dental conditions such as gaps and crooked teeth over time. However, Invisalign is different from metal braces as it is comfortable, does not contain wires or brackets. These thin and clear aligners have a fantastic fit and are removable, which add to the overall comfort.
The primary material that constitutes Invisalign is a patented thermoplastic material. This plastic is FDA approved, so they are also free of latex, gluten, BPA and BPS. Even though Invisalign is plastic, it is unbreakable, so you don’t need to worry about a hasty trip to the ER.
When used correctly, Invisalign works quicker than braces. The effectiveness of the Invisalign brace system largely depends on the severity of the dental condition. However, most patients using Invisalign see remarkable results within 12 months. On the other hand, those with severely crooked teeth may require up to 24 months to see the desired results. Nevertheless, generally, using Invisalign regularly for a couple of weeks has also significantly differed in most users.
Of course, the proper use of Invisalign will also determine the effectiveness of the treatment. Typically, patients need to wear Invisalign day and night for the first two to three weeks. However, to eat, drink; brushing teeth, and flossing, you can remove them.
The cost of Invisalign treatment is almost the same as metal braces. However, the number of aligners you need will affect the treatment cost to a certain extent. The complexity of your dental condition can also kick up the overall cost.
But Invisalign treatment is a very affordable treatment. Besides, most dental insurance policies cover all or a significant part of the Invisalign treatment, making it even more affordable.
Our dental clinic also offers flexible payment options, so Invisalign treatment is available to everyone.
When you schedule an appointment with your dentist, he or she will assess your dental problem. Then using 3D technology, the doctor takes photographs and an impression of your teeth. These materials are sent to the laboratory where your Invisalign braces are custom made. The number of Invisalign aligners required depends from one person to the next. However, most patients require 12 to 18 aligners.
At our clinic, we offer a complimentary consultation for all Invisalign patients. So don’t hesitate to contact us to avail of this opportunity!
