With decades of innovations and continued success, it’s no wonder Invisalign has provided flawless smiles for thousands of patients.

1 – What Does Invisalign Cost?

The price of Invisalign, like other dental treatments, can be impacted by a number of variables. For example, your specific orthodontic needs will change the cost of treatment. If you need advanced alignment, your treatment may take longer and cost more. According to Invisalign manufacturers, treatments can range from $3,500 to $6,000 on average. However, more dental insurance providers than ever are covering part of this orthodontic option, so you will not likely need to pay the entire price out of pocket.

2 – Should Adults Bother with Orthodontic Treatment?

Absolutely. At any age, you should feel completely confident when you smile. Whether your teeth moved out of alignment following orthodontic treatment or braces just weren’t an option for you as a teen, Invisalign gives you the opportunity to correct your smile alignment without negatively impacting your image. Without properly aligning your smile, you may be putting yourself at risk for other oral health issues like excessive dental wear, TMJ dysfunction, and thinning tooth enamel.

3 – Why Should I Consider Invisalign?

If you’re looking for a way to straighten your smile comfortably in less time than is possible with traditional braces, Invisalign may be right for you. Some of the benefits of Invisalign clear braces orthodontics include:

  • Less time in the dentist’s office with short checkups every six to eight weeks
  • Less time for overall treatment about 10 to 18 months on average
  • No need to change diet and oral hygiene routines simply remove your aligner while you eat, brush, and floss
  • Look great throughout the entire Invisalign process with almost completely clear aligners

4 – How Long Does Invisalign Take?

Depending on the individual, Invisalign treatment plans can take as little as six months or more than a year. The average treatment is completed within twelve months. Following effective alignment, patients will need to wear a retainer for about year. For the first few weeks or months, the retainer needs to be worn continuously, but after this initial period, you will only need to wear the retainer during sleep.
