Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligners are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist plans out for you. There are not metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you’ve always wanted. The best part of the whole process is that most poeple won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
A very common question that Dr. Marostica encounters about Invisalign is, how much does it cost? In most cases, Invisalign treatment is comparable to the cost of traditional braces. However, as with other medical treatments, only your doctor can determine the cost, based on your specific needs. Other factors may include your treatment goals, the difficulty of your case, how long you are in treatment where you live, your orthodontic insurance coverage, and additional factors determined by your dentist. In the U.S. the cost of Invisalign treatment ranges from $3,500 to $6,000 with an average around $5,000.
There are other benefits to have straighter teeth done by Invisalign other then cosmetic. First by using Invisalign you with have healthier gums. Properly positioned teeth are easier to brush and floss than teeth that are crowed, crooked, or spaced too far apart. Properly aligned teeth can help gums fit more tightly around them, which may lead to better periodontal health. Second having straighter teeth can make cleaning your teeth easier. This will reduce the chance of plaque retention, tooth decay, or periodontal disease. Last you will reduce the risk of abnormal wear on teeth with teeth are properly aligned. These are just a few of the benefits of straight teeth which can be achieved by using Invisalign.
