Dr. Linda King, DDS and our team are pleased to offer the following information to help you determine if Invisalign® is the right fit for your smile:
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses customized clear aligners to shift teeth into a more aesthetic position. Created with 3D computer technology, your aligners are designed to fit your unique smile and achieve your desired results. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks and then replaced with a new set to shift your teeth even further. This process is repeated over a specified amount of time until your beautiful smile is achieved. The length of treatment will depend on your specific needs.
Will Invisalign fit my lifestyle?
Invisalign is a great option for many patients because it does not require significant adjustments to your lifestyle. Because the aligners are removable, you can still eat, drink, and brush and floss your teeth as normal. The clear aligners are virtually invisible when worn, so you do not need to worry about the appearance of your smile in pictures or when you are socializing. You can also remove your aligners during important events. Appointments with your dental care professional typically occur every six weeks and are quick and easy, which means they will not interrupt your regular schedule.
What are the main benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign offers many benefits, but the primary benefits you will notice is that your aligners are clear and removable. Their discreet appearance allows you to continue on with your daily activities and special events without worrying about the appearance of your smile. You can remove the aligners at will for meals, tooth care, and important social interactions. The comfortable design does not cause irritation to the teeth and gums that some patients experience with braces. Furthermore, your dental care provider can use advanced technology to show your treatment plan from start to finish, revealing the end result of treatment before you even begin.
What is the cost of Invisalign?
The cost of your Invisalign treatment will depend on the following factors:
- The extent of tooth correction needed
- The length of treatment
- Any specific treatment details recommended by our dentist
Sweet Spot Smiles will work with you on a personal basis to arrange a financial plan that fits your budget.
Is Invisalign only for adults?
While Invisalign is typically recommended to adults for cosmetic purposes, Invisalign Teen® offers younger patients the opportunity to straighten their smiles without braces. If your teenager does not want to spend their teen years with a mouth full of metal, we encourage you to speak with our dentist about Invisalign.
