What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a fairly recent treatment that uses computer-generated molds to realign or correct teeth that are growing or are set incorrectly. This treatment system uses clear aligners that are custom-designed based on molds of your teeth. The aligners are constructed from comfortable plastics that are free of BPA. Through a series of aligners, your teeth gradually move into position by exerting gentle pressure. You are given new aligners every few weeks throughout your treatment. Treatment times vary depending on your specific bite issues and cosmetic goals.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign aligners fit over your teeth. With gentle and gradual pressure, the series of aligners move your teeth to different positions. By wearing each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day and changing to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks, your teeth shift into place according to your specific treatment plan. The aligners can be removed when eating, brushing your teeth, or playing sports. However, you must wear them when you are sleeping.
What To Expect During an Invisalign Consultation
You will begin by having an initial consultation with our Invisalign dentist in Morrisville. During this visit, you will discuss the Invisalign process, how the system works, an approximate length of time for the achieved result, and the estimated cost for your individual situation. We will answer any questions you may have in order for you to get all the information you need to make an informed decision.
If you decide to go ahead with the treatment, we will take a number of X-rays and photographs of your mouth, teeth, and face from a variety of angles. This ensures that we have a detailed map of your mouth mechanics on which to base our dental work. From there, we will take impressions of the teeth the aligners will be fitted for.
What Is the Difference Between Invisalign and Braces?
Besides the appearance, there are several differences between Invisalign and braces. The main difference between the two methods is the technique used to shift teeth. Braces use metal brackets and high tech wires inside the mouth during treatment to reposition teeth. Invisalign uses a series of clear custom aligning trays that are changed every week or two to move teeth. There are benefits and challenges with each method.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
According to the Consumer Guide for Dentistry, the national average for Invisalign is $3,000-$5,000. The cost is also dependent on the length and complexity of the treatment plan. Contact us, your local Invisalign dentist in Morrisville for an approximate cost for your individual treatment plan.
How Long Does the Invisalign Treatment Take?
Based on your specific needs, your dentist determines exactly how long your treatment will take. On average, Invisalign treatment time is 12 to 18 months. If your case is simple and doesn’t require a lot of tooth movement, it could be as short as six months. If you have a more complex case such as crowded teeth, the treatment time could be 24 months or slightly longer.
