Invisalign clear aligner therapy is a great orthodontic alternative to traditional braces and give you the beautiful smile you want. It has gained popularity over the years especially for adults who want to straighten their teeth without the hassle of metal brackets and wires. At BME Dental, we offer free Invisalign consultations to determine the best treatment for you!
How Does Invisalign Work?
Just like traditional braces, Invisalign uses pressure on your teeth to straighten them. Invisalign trays are clear, and therefore barely visible to others. It’s a great option for those who want to address their crooked teeth without undergoing a huge physical change. Each Invisalign tray is worn for 1-2 weeks at a time and should be worn for at least 20 hours per day. Ideally, the trays should only be removed during eating and brushing so that enough pressure is placed on the teeth without interruption.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Invisalign trays are typically around the same price range as traditional braces. Some dental insurances also cover orthodontic applications! At BME Dental, we offer free consultations for Invisalign as well as a complimentary insurance verification!
How Long Do I Need to Wear Invisalign?
A typical timeline for Invisalign therapy will range from 8 to 12 months, but it will depend on the complexity of the case. Someone with mild crowding or spacing will wear it for a shorter time period than someone who needs more movement to achieve straighter teeth.
Which is Better: Invisalign or Metal Braces?
It depends. More complex cases like extreme underbites and overbites, as well as extreme crowding and spacing may have more predictable results with metal braces. Invisalign is ideal for mild to moderate crowding and spacing. Invisalign is great for adults who experienced orthodontic relapse because they did not wear their retainers after they had their braces removed.
