Benefits of Straight Teeth

For decades, these patients were supported by dental insurance providers who considered orthodontic treatment to be a purely cosmetic, elective service. Today, more patients and dental insurance providers are aware of the necessity of correcting their smile alignment to ensure optimal oral health, and the majority of insurers do provide some coverage for orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign. Some of the many benefits of straightening your smile include:

Who is an Invisalign Candidate?

We’ll examine your smile, discuss alignment goals, and partner with you to plan for treatment to achieve your picture-perfect smile.

What is Invisalign & How Does it Work?

Each set of aligners represents your smile’s position one step closer to the final result. You’ll wear the aligners for about two weeks at a time. Then, simply move on to the next set of aligners. Every six to eight weeks, you’ll need to visit our office for a checkup. During these short visits, we simply need to check your progress. We can use this opportunity to make any adjustments necessary to your treatment plan to keep your smile alignment on track. Most patients complete their Invisalign orthodontic plan in just 12 months.

Invisalign VS Traditional Braces

No treatment is right for everyone, and many patients can still benefit from traditional orthodontic treatments. However, as you’re considering moving forward with Invisalign treatment, you should keep in mind the following advantages of Invisalign clear braces compared with bracket and wire orthodontic options:

What Happens After Invisalign Treatment?

Man with straight beautiful teethFollowing your Invisalign treatment plan, you will need to wear a retainer, usually for at least a year. In the past, Invisalign patients had to wear the traditional metal and plastic retainers that are associated with bracket and wire braces. Today, we are often able to provide clear, plastic retainers that look just like your Invisalign trays. When your teeth are shifted into a new position, the supportive bone and soft tissue need time to reattach to the tooth’s root system to hold your smile in its new alignment. The retainer holds your smile in its ideal alignment while the supportive alveolar bone and gum tissue fuse with the roots of teeth. In addition to using retainers to maintain your results, we’ll partner with you to ensure you’re caring for your smile properly at home and using the right oral hygiene products for your unique needs. During six month dental checkups, we’ll help you with all of your oral health care needs to keep your properly aligned smiles looking great and functioning perfectly. Please don’t hesitate to call us if you have any concerns following your Invisalign treatment.
