What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a virtually invisible retainer-like system that helps both teens and adults who have their permanent teeth. It helps straighten their smile without all of the metal and rubber bands that come with braces. Indeed, even people who had other orthodontic treatments before can use Invisalign to help offset any teeth shifting since original orthodontic work was completed.
Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
Anyone who is a teenager or adult whose permanent teeth have grown in can use Invisalign. Invisalign allows you to live life on your terms. If you want to eat popcorn or chew gum occasionally, you can take the aligners out and enjoy foods and drinks and your leisure. You are free to play sports without needing the thick, clunky mouth guards that you needed for braces. Your life is yours to live again.
Note that it’s recommended to wear your aligners for 22 hours per day for the best results.
Remember, no one’s teeth are too complicated for Invisalign as your trays are made specifically for your teeth and can change as your teeth shift and move where you want them to go.
How Long Does it Take?
Invisalign generally can work at about twice the speed of braces or other orthodontic devices. Double the speed at correcting your smile means that you can get out of your corrective devices in half of the amount of time that you would have to spend in traditional braces or wearing other corrective orthodontic devices. The added speed of Invisalign means that it’s quicker than ever to correct your smile and restore your confidence in yourself.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
The price of Invisalign will vary based on your needs and the length of time that you have to spend wearing the aligners. Invisalign recommends that most wearers change their aligners every two weeks (twice per month). Your qualified Terrace Smiles Dentistry dentist can determine how long you will have to wear your aligners to achieve the smile you desire.
Monthly payment plans are available to help you pay for your Invisalign treatment, and your Terrace Smiles Dentistry dentist is happy to sit down and help you come up with a plan that is affordable for you. On average, you can expect to pay about $5,000 for the entire treatment, but the length of the treatment required and the total amount of trays used will impact the prices for each.
Is Invisalign Right for My Teen?
Invisalign can benefit a large number of both teens and adults. However, if you are wondering if your teen qualifies for Invisalign, talking to one of our qualified Terrace Smiles Dentistry dentists can help you decide whether you feel that Invisalign is the right treatment for your teen.
