How Invisalign Works

Traditional braces rely on brackets and wires to pull the teeth into position. Although it’s effective, metal id="interior" braces have several disadvantages. As an alternative, many patients are turning to Invisalign to achieve the results they want.

Your dentist in Litchfield Park will create a series of aligners to fix your bite and alignment. You’ll wear a transparent aligner over your teeth for at least 22 hours per day. It will apply consistent pressure to your teeth to move them into position. Each week you’ll switch to a new aligner in the series. While every case differs, most patients are finished with their series in about 12 months.

Indications for Invisalign

Invisalign is effective for correcting a variety of issues; however, you’ll still need a thorough consultation to ensure it’s right for you. The aligners can often be used to improve:

Crowded Teeth

Crowded teeth are difficult to clean, increasing your risk of common dental issues, like tooth decay, gum disease, and even dental emergencies. Moving them into alignment will improve your oral health and your confidence.

Gaps Between Teeth

Food particles and plaque can get trapped in the large spaces between your teeth, which can lead to gum disease. Invisalign can close the gaps to keep your teeth and gums healthy while giving you an attractive smile.

Bite Alignment

The positioning of your teeth can also affect your bite. If your upper and lower teeth don’t fit together correctly, it can lead to reoccurring jaw pain and dental issues. Invisalign will fix your bite to create harmony between your top and bottom teeth.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

There isn’t a set rate for Invisalign because the cost is based on several factors, like the complexity of your case. If your teeth need significant movements, you can expect several aligners to be necessary. As a result, your treatment will cost more than a person who only needs to make minor adjustments.

We’ll provide you with an estimate during your initial consultation and discuss the costs associated with your plan. A member of our team will help you maximize your insurance benefits to help offset the cost. Our office accepts several payment methods to keep your new smile within your budget, including third-party financing with CareCredit.
