At Peach Orthodontics, we are passionate about helping you get the smile you’ve always wanted in any stage of life. It’s a common misconception that corrective treatment is meant for teenagers when it is really meant for people who need help achieving the smile of their dreams. If you are worried about the aesthetics of braces as an adult, look no further – we have the perfect treatment for you! With Invisalign, you can have an almost imperceptible treatment with the same great results as traditional braces.
Why Should I Get Invisalign As an Adult?
Orthodontics isn’t just about creating beautiful smiles, it’s also about creating healthy ones. This is why we encourage patients of all ages to seek out treatment so they can live their best quality of life. Invisalign gives adults the flexibility of being able to take the clear aligners in and out when the occasion arises with the added bonus of being almost invisible to anyone who doesn’t know the aligners are there.
While these clear aligners may look nonexistent, their results certainly are not. Invisalign patients are able to tell a difference almost immediately and love how comfortable they feel in the process. Invisalign has become increasingly popular among adults who are looking for the results of braces without the look of them.
How Will You Start My Treatment Plan?
Every Invisalign treatment begins with a free consultation with Dr. Brent, where he will explain the process in detail and evaluate your smile. From there, we can create a projection that will show your desired results and create a set of aligners to get you there. These aligners will be printed based on 3D images we take of your mouth using the iTero. This way, we can capture all of the grooves of your smile and your aligners will fit snugly.
Once treatment is underway, you will be given a new set of aligners every two weeks. They will be adjusted each time, designed to bring you closer to your desired smile.
How Long Will My Treatment Last?
Treatment time in Invisalign varies from patient to patient. It also depends on how extensive the issues are that need correcting. To figure out a realistic timeline for your specific corrections, contact us today and Dr. Brent can evaluate your needs during your free first consultation.
In most cases, a typical treatment timeline is one to two years. This is comparable to traditional metal braces and other corrective treatments.
How Much Will My Invisalign Clear Aligners Cost?
Invisalign is an accessible treatment for adults who want a dazzling, healthy smile. We have developed a variety of flexible financing plans designed with you in mind. We believe that everyone deserves to have a smile they’re proud of so we will work to figure out the perfect option for you.
The typical cost of Invisalign is very similar to traditional braces and, just like braces, depends on the length of treatment. If you have more extensive issues that need to be corrected, the price may fluctuate. We are ready and willing to help manage these costs by working hand-in-hand with your insurance provider in addition to our flexible financing plans.
How Do I Sanitize Invisalign?
We know that cleaning aligners may sound daunting, but keeping your Invisalign aligners clean is actually very simple. You don’t want to put dirty aligners on clean teeth, so make sure you rinse them out every night after brushing your teeth. After rinsing them, take your toothbrush and brush them gently to rid them of any germs or residues they may acquire throughout the day.
Is Invisalign Uncomfortable?
Not at all! In fact, Invisalign is often praised as the most comfortable form of corrective treatment. This is true for a variety of reasons, but mainly because the aligners are printed in SmartTrack® thermoplastic, a cutting-edge material that was created with patient comfort in mind. Invisalign is made to fit snugly over your teeth so there is no room for it to move and rub against your mouth.
After the clear aligners are printed, they are cut down to the perfect height so that they don’t hit against your gums and cause any unnecessary pain. If there is some initial discomfort when wearing the aligners, it is most likely from the shifting of teeth. We recommend taking an over-the-counter pain reliever to ease any discomfort you may feel during your treatment.
