Invisalign Clear Aligners
Here at Woodcreek Dental, we can help you get your perfect smile with Invisalign® treatment.
Invisalign is suitable for most cases of minor to moderate misalignment, including overbite and deep bite. There are still some more severe cases that would require you to get a fixed brace, but that’s something we can determine only after the first assessment.
We recommend these invisible braces only for those who are willing to commit. You will need to make sure you wear them for at least 22 hours a day. You only remove the braces when you eat and drink. If you do not wear the aligners as much as you should, your treatment might be prolonged, and you will not achieve the best possible results. Luckily, we can help you discover what the results will look like through our 3D simulation. This will allow you to see your new smile before you make your final decision.
What You Should Know About the Aligners
We can never precisely predict how long it will take before you see results. An individual consultation with one of our experienced dentists may help create a reasonable timeline. However, Invisalign clear aligners usually deliver faster results than traditional braces, mostly because the sets are periodically changed. You will get a new set every two or three weeks, depending on how you are responding to the treatment.
One of the biggest benefits of the Invisalign aligners is that they are almost invisible. Most people will not notice that you have them. Some of them may see that there is something different about your teeth, but they will only appear shinier, so they will not know for sure it is due to the aligners. However, these occasions are rare, and a great number of our patients have said that nobody noticed they were wearing aligners throughout their entire treatment.
The fees for wearing aligners usually range between $3000 and $5000 for a 12-18 month treatment period. However, this will vary on your specific case. Mild cases may cost much less. Additionally, it is also possible that you pay for your treatment in installments, which makes it available for all budgets.
Who Can Use Invisalign?
Invisalign are probably the best option available when it comes to straightening a smile. Unfortunately, however, they are not for everybody. The aligners are not suitable for people with severe alignment problems, and more traditional alternatives will be needed instead. As with other options, you will also find that the aligners are only effective if you keep them in for long enough. If you have a habit of forgetting to put them in, then they are unlikely to work well for you.
Our experts will speak with you to determine whether or not Invisalign aligners are for you. We will also do what we can to help in any other way that we can.
