How Does Invisalign Work?

Brackets and wires pull your teeth into position, which is effective in correcting even the most complex issues. Unfortunately, braces can be very noticeable. Invisalign resolves the common complaints of metal braces because it doesn’t involve any brackets or wires.

Instead, impressions of your mouth are taken, which integrate with state-of-the-art technology to map the movement of your teeth. The information is transferred to a series of aligners you’ll wear over your teeth to move them into position. You’ll need to commit to wearing the aligners for at least 22 hours per day. You’ll switch to the next aligner in the series after about 1 week. On average, it takes 12-18 months to finish the treatment.

Indications for Invisalign

Invisalign is effective for correcting a variety of bite and alignment issues that can lead to dental problems, including:

Crowded Teeth

Teeth that overlap or are crowded are difficult to clean, increasing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Spaces Between Teeth

Food particles and plaque can get trapped in large spaces between the teeth.

Bite Alignment

Bite issues can lead to jaw pain, dental concerns, and even difficulty biting, chewing, or speaking.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

When compared to traditional braces, Invisalign offers a variety of benefits, including:

  • Nearly invisible
  • Doesn’t irritate the inside of the lips or cheeks
  • Quicker results
  • No dietary restrictions
  • Easy maintenance and care
  • Less time in the dental chair
  • Convenient

What is the Cost of Invisalign?

There isn’t a set fee for Invisalign because the cost is determined by your specific treatment plan, like the number of aligners you’ll need. On average, complex cases will require more aligners than what’s needed when making simple adjustments.

We’ll work on your behalf with your insurance carrier to file the necessary forms to lower the amount you pay out-of-pocket. A member of our team will work with you to help you find the solutions you need to achieve a straight smile without breaking the bank.
