Metal Braces-No thanks. The Alternative Invisalign
You might remember those days when your friends or yourself had those shiny metal braces. Not just the look but also the uncomfortable feeling of such braces makes you crunch when you think of straightening your teeth.
The good news is those days are over. For over 20 years Invisalign is on the market. They are clear plastic aligners that you can wear to straighten crooked teeth.
It was invented to close gaps, shift teeth and align the arch of mild to moderate malfunctions.
With the latest 3D technology, it is possible to see the possible results of your smile beforehand.
If you are happy with it the treatment can start. You will get a series of aligners that will change your smile.
How long will an Invisalign treatment take?
Compared with metal braces that take an average of 2 years the treatment period with Invisalign is very short. They align your teeth in as little as 6 months.
Does Invisalign hurt?
Even though it gives you quick results they are very gentle and comfortable to wear. Between the changes of your aligners you might feel a slight soreness but that wears off very quickly.
The best thing is you can do every activity with them and they are hardly noticeable because they come with a stain resistant technology.
The comfort of Invisalign is surprisingly good and you are able to take them out for your meals, which makes them easy to clean and take care of your oral hygiene.
This is another advantage over metal braces and will protect your teeth from damage through cavities.
How much does Invisalign cost?
There is not one specific answer to this one because it really depends on the case and the severity of your malocclusion and if you get upper and lower aligners.
Generally, they are much more affordable than an orthodontic treatment with metal braces but interest free payment options are a very common payment plan that we are happy to assist with.
