How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is a relatively straight-forward treatment that’s more convenient and flexible than traditional metal braces. Using customized clear trays that are made from an FDA-approved plastic, your teeth will have a gentle and strategic amount of pressure placed on them to gradually shift them into their ideal positions. Every six to eight weeks, you’ll return to our office for a quick progress check and to pick up the next series of trays in your treatment until you reach your final alignment goal.

Indications for Invisalign

Invisalign isn’t always the best treatment option for every patient. In fact, in cases involving more severe orthodontic issues, like bite misalignment, traditional braces may be the best option. However, your dentist in Panama City can let you know whether you qualify for this treatment after examining your mouth during your initial consultation. Then, we can outline a plan so you know exactly what to expect throughout the process.

Crooked & Crowded Teeth

Teeth that are crooked and crowded together can increase your risk of plaque and tartar accumulation, ultimately resulting in common oral problems like cavities. Invisalign trays can help align them, allowing them to lay side-by-side and making them easier to clean.

Gaps Between Teeth

While some patients feel proud to rock their gapped teeth, others may not. Invisalign trays can gradually shift your teeth back together, closing spaces in your arch and helping boost your confidence.

Bite Misalignment

Whether you have overbite, underbite, or crossbite, Invisalign aligners can help address mild to moderate bite misalignment cases to decrease your risk of developing problems like TMJ dysfunction down the road.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign treatment offers a slew of benefits, which is why these clear aligners are a popular treatment choice among adults and teens alike. Here are some of the advantages of choosing Invisalign for orthodontic treatment:

  • Convenient, removable trays that allow you to eat whatever foods you want—just take out your aligners before you sit down for a meal!
  • Removable trays also make it easier to maintain good oral health throughout your treatment, because you won’t have to worry about brushing and flossing around metal brackets and wires.
  • Shorter average treatment times. The average Invisalign treatment lasts between eight and 14 months.
  • Custom-crafted trays make your overall treatment experience more comfortable.

Understanding the Cost of Invisalign

Every Invisalign treatment is custom-tailored to fit each individual patient’s needs, which is why the cost is determined once we’ve had a chance to examine your mouth and map out your treatment plan. The price will be based on how many aligners are needed, whether you stay on-track with your treatment and wear them for at least 22 hours a day, and if you require a replacement aligner if you lose or damage one. Our team will walk you through these details, along with your payment options, to make sure that your orthodontic treatment can fit within your budget.
