Many people are interested in correcting their smile but aren’t keen on traditional braces. After all, braces use painful brackets and wires, which many adults don’t want to wear. Thankfully, there are alternative treatment options if you want to straighten your teeth without traditional braces.
At Midtown Dental, we proudly offer Invisalign clear aligners. If you want a convenient and easy way to adjust your teeth, Invisalign is perfect for you. Many dental insurance plans partially or entirely cover Invisalign, making them a cost-effective choice.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses transparent, plastic aligner trays to straighten your teeth. Our dentists customize these aligners to your jaw, bite, and teeth. We take a mold of your teeth, then use a computer program to design aligners that gradually straighten your teeth into the desired position.
Over the course of Invisalign treatment, you’ll cycle through different sets of aligners, each moving your teeth further toward a set goal. Usually, you’ll wear one set for a couple of weeks at a time.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign stands out for several different reasons. Here are some of the main advantages Invisalign has to offer:
- Comfort: Invisalign trays don’t require uncomfortable brackets and wires for tooth movement.
- Flexibility: You can play your favorite sports and eat your favorite foods using Invisalign.
- Fewer office visits: Our dentists usually schedule Invisalign check-ups every six to eight weeks, as opposed to once a month like other orthodontic solutions.
- Length of time: Invisalign treatment typically takes around a year, but many patients can finish in less time.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
The cost of Invisalign varies depending on how many trays you need and your specific circumstances. However, many dental insurance plans cover part or all of Invisalign treatments. During your consultation, we’ll cover your expected treatment timeline and cost.
Our Invisalign Treatment Process
At Midtown Dental, we begin each Invisalign project with a personal consultation. First, our dentists will talk with you to understand your specific circumstances, helping you set goals as to what you want your teeth to look like. Then, after reviewing a set of x-rays, we can determine whether or not Invisalign works for you.
Next, we’ll make digitally scan your mouth to create a personalized treatment plan. This digital scan helps us create your very own set of custom aligners. Usually, your first set of aligners will be ready within a few weeks.
As you wear your plastic aligners, you’ll periodically come into Midtown Dental’s office to get new trays. With each visit, you’ll see how your teeth are progressing toward your desired smile. Once you finish treatment, we’ll give you a retainer to help keep your teeth in place to keep your teeth straight.
