Invisalign Braces

Invisalign Braces

Invisalign is an orthodontic procedure that straightens the teeth without using metal, typically used in braces. Invisalign braces are transparent and removable and are less evident compared to traditional braces. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made, clear aligners that cover your teeth to gently push them into position over the treatment period. 

Who Is Invisalign Treatment For?

This treatment is an excellent solution for both teens and adults looking for options to improve their smiles. Invisalign clear braces give you an alternative to enhance your smile without undergoing treatment with traditional metal braces, which is less comfortable and more complicated. It is an effective and discreet method to acquire a perfectly aligned set of teeth.

What Is Invisalign Made From?

Invisalign clear aligners are made from BPA-free plastic, and they are far more comfortable than traditional metal braces. These customized clear aligners straighten your teeth gently to give you a perfect smile.

What Are the Advantages of Invisalign Braces?

There are several benefits to wearing Invisalign braces compared to traditional metal braces:

  • Clear aligners are aesthetically pleasing, as they are nearly invisible. They are the ideal choice if you want a discreet orthodontic treatment option.
  • Clear aligners can be removed at any time to eat, brush, and floss. 
  • You can maintain your oral hygiene habits and feel comfortable while the aligners straighten your teeth.
  • Invisalign braces are more comfortable to wear compared to traditional metal braces. Traditional braces can scratch your cheeks and make you feel uncomfortable. 
  • This procedure requires fewer visits to your orthodontist. Traditional braces require frequent dental visits as you need to get your wires tightened every six weeks. 

How Long Does This Treatment Take?

The duration of this treatment will vary based on the age and specific needs of each patient. The average treatment time is one year but every case is very different. The time needed for the entire treatment course can be estimated once your teeth are examined and digital images are captured. 

What Is the Cost of Invisalign Braces?

The cost of Invisalign braces varies from patient to patient based on many factors like the severity of your teeth's misalignment and how long it will take to move them into their correct positions. The treatment cost can be calculated once the teeth are examined, the X-rays are taken, and the 3D model is prepared.  

What Happens After Invisalign Treatment Is Completed?

After the Invisalign procedure is completed, you should wear a retainer. A retainer will keep your teeth in alignment, or else your teeth can gradually move back to their former positions. The retainer can be designed based on individual needs.
