Invisalign® Clear Braces
If you have misaligned teeth, and you’re not sure you want to commit to traditional braces, then we invite you to consider the Invisalign system. Invisalign clear braces are made from comfortable, virtually invisible plastic. Utilizing a series of aligners that are switched out every two weeks, your teeth are gently and gradually shifted into place. Invisalign clear braces usually take 18-24 months to straighten your smile, and because they don’t require adjusting, you’ll spend less time in the dentist’s office.
Indications for Invisalign
Although Invisalign isn’t designed to treat more extensive orthodontic issues, like rotated teeth, it can still address the following conditions:
Having teeth too close together or overlapping can negatively affect the look and feel of your smile. With Invisalign, the clear aligners will apply focused pressure to different parts so that they can move your teeth into proper alignment while remaining discreet.
Gaps Between Teeth
Spaces in your smile can often feel embarrassing or unattractive. On top of that, they can increase your risk of cavities and gum disease by allowing food particles to become trapped, which can eventually cause decay. Invisalign trays can bridge the gaps between your teeth, guiding them into a safer and more aesthetically pleasing position.
Bite misalignment can place excessive pressure on your temporomandibular joint, causing issues like TMJ disorder and teeth grinding/clenching. Though you may need buttons and other additions, Invisalign clear aligners can correct alignment problems like an overbite, underbite, or crossbite.
The Benefits of Invisalign
If you and your dentist in Las Vegas determine that Invisalign is a good option for you, then you can be sure to expect the following benefits from the treatment:
- Removable clear aligners.
- Quicker treatment timeframe (on average).
- No dietary limitations.
- Discreet process.
- Fewer appointments.
- Simpler dental hygiene.
Understanding the Cost of Invisalign
Simply put, there are several factors that influence the overall cost of your Invisalign treatment, which is why we recommend scheduling a consultation with our team. When you visit our top-rated, talented, and compassionate dentist, Dr. Michael Rose , he will create your treatment plan as well as provide an estimate for the overall cost. Afterward, our team can review your payment options so that your procedure can be more manageable. Of course, if you want to learn more about your financial investment before your appointment, you can also read on!
Factors That Affect the Cost of Invisalign
Since no two smiles are exactly the same, numerous factors need to be considered to provide you with an accurate price estimate, including:
- The severity of your orthodontic situation
- If you need to straighten one or both arches of teeth
- The number of trays you’ll require
- If rubber bands and other accessories are needed
Please note that these are just a few of the factors that will impact the cost upfront. To stay on track with your treatment plan (and prevent any additional expenses), you will need to follow all of the treatment guidelines, like switching your trays on the right day and wearing them for 20-22 hours a day.
Invisalign vs. Smile Direct Club™: Which Costs More?
Mail-order clear aligner companies boast about their lower upfront cost, but this should really be a warning to patients. What crucial steps of the treatment process are they skipping to cut down on costs? Unfortunately, the answer is “several.” For example, while the Invisalign process starts with a thorough consultation to ensure you’re a good candidate, the same cannot be said for mail-order clear aligner companies. If that wasn’t reason enough to avoid these alternatives, there are numerous lawsuits from patients who have experienced worsened misalignment, and several professional organizations (like the ADA) have actively warned the public against them.
Does Dental Insurance Cover Invisalign?
That depends on the fine print on your dental plan, so don’t hesitate to double-check with your provider! You may have a once-in-a-lifetime benefit that can be used to cover a portion of the cost of Invisalign. If you’re having trouble understanding your coverage, you can also ask our team for help. We welcome all PPO plans and are in-network with Delta Dental Premier and Aetna. Furthermore, we have years of experience helping our patients make the most of their benefits.
Options for Making Invisalign Affordable
If you don’t have dental insurance, don’t automatically assume there aren’t any other financial solutions available. Our team at Rose Cosmetic & Family Dentistry also welcomes flexible financing through CareCredit and Alphaeon. As a result, you can break up your payments into budget-friendly chunks instead of paying for the whole thing in one lump sum.
Wish you could have a straighter smile? If you want to achieve your dream look without metal wires and brackets, you might be considering Invisalign. The clear aligners move your teeth into proper alignment discreetly and comfortably! Of course, because it’s such a unique process, we understand you may have some questions in mind before committing to treatment. Our team at Rose Cosmetic & Family Dentistry wants you to be as well-informed as possible, which is why we’ve decided to answer some frequently asked questions below.
How Long Does Invisalign Take?
It depends! Since every case is unique, the amount of time it’ll take to complete Invisalign treatment will vary from patient to patient. Many factors must be taken into account, such as the severity of your misalignment and commitment to the treatment plan. The average person can expect to finish Invisalign somewhere between 12 to 18 months. If you have mild dental misalignment, you can finish in as little as six months!
Although 18 months seems like a long time, it’s still about four months shorter than the average treatment length with traditional braces. You can speed up the process by visiting your dentist regularly and committing to treatment instructions.
Does Invisalign Hurt?
Not at all! The smooth plastic design of the clear aligners makes Invisalign one of the most comfortable orthodontic treatment options to date. At first, you may experience mild soreness and discomfort while you get used to the plastic trays. Some patients may characterize this sensation as pain. However, it should go away as you get used to the treatment.
Keep in mind that Invisalign works by shifting your teeth into proper alignment using a small amount of pressure. Each time you switch to the next aligner in the series, you may feel this sensation – but that’s how you know it’s doing its job! If needed, you can manage your discomfort with over-the-counter pain medication and cold compresses.
What Happens After Invisalign?
After you finish Invisalign treatment, you will visit your dentist to verify your results. They’ll make sure your teeth look exactly how they should! Once they confirm your smile is in the desired straight position, they’ll brief you on how to maintain your newly aligned grin.
You’ll start your post-treatment journey by wearing a retainer, which will either be a wire one or a clear plastic one that looks similar to Invisalign trays. It’s crucial that you wear your retainer as instructed because it will help preserve the results you’ve spent significant time and money on. Depending on your specific situation, your dentist will recommend how often you need to wear your retainer. Most people start by wearing it full time before gradually decreasing to only wearing it at night.
How Do I Clean My Invisalign?
There are several different ways you can keep your Invisalign aligners clean. You can rinse them throughout the day to prevent debris from sticking to the smooth plastic and use a soft-bristled toothbrush to gently clean them. Don’t use hot water as it can permanently warp the plastic!
Invisalign also sells its own cleaning system that’s designed specifically for maintaining your aligners. It uses cleaning crystals that shake loose food debris and plaque. Another great product to consider is Steraligner, which is a cleaning solution for plastic trays. It’s easy to use and incredibly reliable!
