A fantastic orthodontic treatment for patients who want to align their teeth discreetly, the Invisalign® system is comprised of a number of almost invisible, custom-made aligners that slowly shift your teeth as they simultaneously allow for diligent dental hygiene practices.
How does the Invisalign system work?
In contrast to traditional braces, Invisalign realigns smiles with removable (and comfortable!) clear plastic trays that are custom-made for each patient with 3D digital scans. Patients need to wear their aligners for an average of 22 hours a day, for one to two weeks, and take them out only when eating and brushing and flossing teeth.
Is Invisalign treatment time lengthier than the treatment time for traditional braces?
Not necessarily. In instances where a smile needs only mild intervention, these aligners can provide a solution in as few as six months. Complex adjustments will need additional treatment time and may be more in line with what you may experience with traditional braces.
Is there a significant cost different between Invisalign and traditional braces?
You may have heard that the convenience and aesthetic benefits Invisalign offers translates into a higher overall cost, but this isn’t necessarily true. Depending on your smile and adjustment needs, Invisalign aligners can be very similar to the cost of traditional orthodontic options.
