Great oral health is for all ages, and Invisalign may be the perfect treatment to improve your smile and health in your stage of life. Smile More Orthodontics is committed to meeting our patients where they are, and this treatment does the same thing. Invisalign is a choose-your-own-adventure treatment that gives you the flexibility to do the things you want while achieving the smile you’ve always wanted. Our Smile More team are experts on this treatment and can give you the care you deserve and deliver a flawless finish.
Why Should I Get Invisalign as an Adult?
Many adult patients gravitate to Invisalign because of the level of discretion they provide. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, so you can smile without a hint of metal while going through treatment. They also provide a high level of comfort that is unmatched by any other corrective treatment. The aligners are printed using a thermoplastic that was engineered for patient comfort and provides consistent pressure for maximum results.
Invisalign goes beyond beautiful smiles; it also creates healthy smiles. Orthodontics can play a huge role in your oral health, and problems left untreated can affect your overall health as well. This means that we can improve not only how you feel on the outside but also how you feel on the inside. You deserve a smile that is both gorgeous and functional, and this corrective treatment provides you with both.
How Will You Start My Treatment Plan?
To begin your treatment, you will meet with one of our doctors, who will conduct a comprehensive exam that will allow them to assess your needs. We will then use a 3D imaging device to create a model of your mouth that captures every aspect of your smile that is unique to you. This 3D image serves multiple purposes. It allows our doctor to fully understand your needs and create a plan that is tailored to you. It also allows us to project a model of the desired results so that you can see what your smile could look like even before you start treatment.
After we decide upon a course of action, we use the 3D image again to have your first set of aligners printed in a material that was created for patient comfort. Your aligners should then fit snugly over your teeth so that there is no sliding or rubbing against the gums. After your first set of aligners, you will receive a new set of aligners every two weeks that has been slightly adjusted to move your teeth closer to your dream smile.
How Long Will My Treatment Last?
Your treatment is tailored to you, so there is no one-size-fits-all treatment length. The time you spend in Invisalign is directly impacted by the extent of the issues that need correcting and how consistently you wear your clear aligners. That being said, most Invisalign patients stay in treatment for about one to two years. We suggest you come to visit the Smile More Orthodontics office for the most accurate estimate and allow our doctors to assess your needs.
How Much Will My Invisalign Clear Aligners Cost?
Invisalign aligners are an investment, but they shouldn’t have to break the bank. A big part of our office culture is investing back into our patients through affordable treatment plans and top-of-the-line technology. We keep treatment costs as low as possible so that beautiful and healthy smiles are accessible to all of our patients. In addition to low costs, we work hard to partner with your insurance provider as well as offer flexible financing plans to help you budget the treatment.
How Do I Sanitize Invisalign?
We know that you have a lot on your plate, and keeping your aligners clean shouldn’t have to add any stress to our routine. To clean your aligners, all you need to do is brush them with your toothbrush and warm water. This removes harmful bacteria that would otherwise sit on your teeth and cause issues down the road. The best time to clean your aligners is right after completing your oral healthcare routine of brushing and flossing. Simply brush your aligners so that you aren’t putting a dirty appliance on clean teeth.
Is Invisalign Uncomfortable?
Not at all! Patients love how comfortable their aligners are and can often barely feel them after having them on for a few days. If you are looking for a treatment that delivers both comfort and results, look no further.
Benefits of Invisalign:
Invisalign offers a level of discretion that is unmatched by any other corrective treatment. The clear aligners are almost invisible and undetectable to anyone who doesn’t already know you’re wearing them. In addition to providing beautiful aesthetics, Invisalign aligners are also extremely comfortable. The aligners are printed in a material created for patient comfort based on a 3D image of your teeth. This means the aligners will fit snugly on your teeth like a second skin. There is no room for rubbing or sliding against your gums, so you benefit from the extreme comfort of the aligners while working toward the smile of your dreams.
Another great benefit of wearing Invisalign is that you can eat whatever you like without worrying about hurting your treatment. All you have to do is remove your aligners, and you can enjoy all of your favorite treats. There are no brackets to break or wires to pull, so you don’t have to make any changed to your diet.
