Straight Teeth for a More Confident Smile with Invisalign
Invisalign is a breakthrough in teeth straightening that uses clear trays to gradually straighten teeth with the average amount of time ranging from six to 18 months. Invisalign is a terrific alternative to traditional wire braces and can achieve the same or better results in getting you that straight smile you’ve been dreaming of.
But how do you know if Invisalign is right for you?
If you had braces as a kid, you may still not be satisfied with your smile as an adult. Contrary to popular belief, even after our teeth are fully erupted, they are still in constant motion. You may have noticed that as you age your teeth begin to appear more crowded, you may start to notice wear, and your bite might start to feel different.
Invisalign vs. braces:
- With Invisalign, you will have removable trays that are custom made to fit your teeth snugly so the process of movement can happen. You will need to physically wear the trays 20 - 22 hours a day for them to work.
- Unlike braces, you can remove Invisalign trays to eat and brush your teeth.
- Only Invisalign aligners are made with SmartTrack material and have been clinically proven to achieve a 75 percent more predictable tooth movement.
- The clear tray system of Invisalign is barely noticeable on your teeth.
How much does Invisalign cost?
Most patients want to know how much is Invisalign. Braces and Invisalign have very similar costs. Both options will cost anywhere from $4,000 to $6,000 depending on the amount of time and adjustment needed.
Having straight teeth is not just for looks.
Malocclusion, or misaligned teeth, not only contribute to self-consciousness, but can also impact the health of your gums, oral hygiene, tooth wear, and even cause trauma. Types of malocclusion include crowding, spacing, deep bite, excessive overjet, edge-to-edge, open bite and narrow arch. By properly aligning your teeth, you not only get a straighter smile, you also save your mouth from many potential health and hygiene problems.
