Invisalign is a new way that many people are using to get a straight smile. People have said that Invisalign helps them restore their smile and build confidence in themselves. Now, it can all get done without those clunk metal braces and enduring teasing nicknames like “metal mouth” or “railroad tracks.”

Invisalign can get used by both teens and adults alike. Read on for further information and all you need to know about seeing if Invisalign is right for you!

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a new technology that allows you to reap the benefits of straight teeth without requiring those clunky metal braces that many people have long dreaded. Invisalign straightens your teeth through a series of interchangeable trays that get worn for about 2 weeks at a time. Your dentist will have you change your trays regularly and determine how many trays you need to get the smile you desire.

Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign works for a large percentage of people who try it. Anyone who experiences any of the following can likely benefit from Invisalign:

  • Slight Crookedness
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Gap Teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Openbite

These conditions can get treated through Invisalign treatment. Every plan is customized for you by your dentist to help you get the perfect, confident smile you desire.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

You will usually have to wear Invisalign for anywhere from 1-2 years for the perfect smile, although few patients can get treated in little as 6 months. Trays will get changed approximately every 2 weeks. It depends on how severe the corrections are that you need to make as to how long your Invisalign treatment will take. Trays are taken out to eat but should get worn a minimum of 22 hours per day for the most effective treatment.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

The average Invisalign treatment generally runs from $3,000 to $7,000. We accept all major PPO dental insurance plans and are happy to discuss other options with you, such as HSA and CreditCare.

Is Invisalign Right For My Teeth?

Talking to your dentist will determine if Invisalign is the right treatment for you. Invisalign can generally work for most teens and adults who have any of the above conditions. However, in severe cases of these conditions, further treatment beyond just Invisalign may become necessary. Your dentist can help you determine what treatment works best for you.
