Traditional metal braces aren’t your only option if you’re considering orthodontic treatment. With Invisalign in Dalton, our dentists can help you straighten your teeth in a discreet, convenient way.
How Does the Invisalign Process Work?
During Invisalign treatment, you’ll wear a series of transparent, custom-made aligner trays over your teeth. The aligner trays work in a similar way to regular braces, slowly moving your teeth into greater alignment over time. The aligners are removable, and you replace them every two weeks.
Average Invisalign Cost
Invisalign is an affordable orthodontic treatment that costs about the same as regular metal braces. Your total costs are based on your individual needs, such as the complexity of your orthodontic issues and how long you require treatment. Our dentists can help you design a treatment plan and provide an estimate of your Invisalign cost. For details about financing and flexible payment plans, contact us for more information.
What’s the Average Treatment Time for Invisalign?
How long you need Invisalign treatment depends on the extent of your orthodontic issues. The average treatment time for adults ranges from 12-18 months; however, the total length of treatment will vary for teens. Once you have achieved your desired results, we recommend wearing Invisalign retainers.
Are Invisalign Dentists Similar to Orthodontists?
Licensed orthodontists and general dentists treating patients with Invisalign receive specialized training for the orthodontic aligner trays. Our experienced Invisalign dentists have the training and experience needed to design a customized treatment plan to help you achieve the best possible results.
Are There Noticeable Differences with Invisalign vs Braces?
When considering Invisalign vs braces, there’s a lot of information to consider. While you might prioritize the aesthetic benefits of a metal-free smile, effective treatment is even more important. If you’re looking to correct mild or moderate orthodontic problems, such as malocclusion or crooked teeth, Invisalign can work just as well as traditional braces. However, when an extensive correction is needed or if you have a complex case, traditional braces will likely be the most effective. To help you with your decision, please make an appointment with one of our experienced dentists.
Benefits of Invisalign Clear Braces
For many patients, there are numerous advantages to correcting your smile with Invisalign. Consider the following advantages of Invisalign when compared to metal braces:
- There are no metal wires or brackets to irritate your mouth and gums.
- You’ll only have to visit our dentist office about every four to six weeks.
- You can eat and drink anything you want.
- Nearly invisible aligners help you feel more confident.
- Removable trays are easier to care for compared to traditional braces.
- You can smile confidently without noticeable metal wires.
Is Invisalign Right for My Situation?
For many adults and teens, Invisalign is a great solution for straightening teeth. Invisalign may not be the right choice for you if you have significant spacing, crowding, or bite problems. In addition, children aren’t good candidates for Invisalign because their mouths are still developing. To determine if Invisalign is a viable treatment option for you, call our office to make an appointment with local Invisalign dentists.
Does Insurance Cover Invisalign?
If you have dental insurance, it’s possible that your plan may cover a significant portion of your Invisalign cost. We encourage you to contact your provider about the extent of your Invisalign insurance coverage or call our dental office for more information.
Will Invisalign Affect My Daily Life?
When choosing Invisalign in Dalton, many people are surprised at how easily treatment fits into their day-to-day activities. You won’t have to eliminate any food or drinks from your diet because the aligners are removed every time you eat. Smoking or chewing tobacco may stain the aligner trays, and chewing gum is also not recommended while wearing the aligner trays. The cleaning system available at our office can be used to clean your aligners, or you can also brush the trays with toothpaste and rinse them with warm water. To help you achieve your desired results, it’s important to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours a day.
