Invisalign is a clear aligner system that is a discreet, effective teeth straightening method. It’s an ideal option for teens and adults who want to correct their smile but don’t want to deal with traditional metal braces. If you are considering this clear aligner system, there are a few things you need to know.

1. Orthodontic Complexity

Invisalign can treat a wide range of orthodontic needs. It effectively treats mild to moderate misalignments, overcrowding, gaps, overbite, underbite, crossbite, and more. However, traditional braces may be the best solution in some complex cases.

It’s essential that a dentist evaluates your orthodontic needs. Meeting with a dentist who offers this alignment system and discussing your smile goals is the first step in determining if the system can help you achieve your goals. In most cases, the answer will be a “yes,” but you won’t know until your appointment.

2. Patient Participation

Traditional braces are fixed, so you don’t have to worry about putting them on or off. Invisalign is a clear tray system that is customized to your specific needs. The trays are removed while you eat, drink, and perform dental hygiene.

While the trays can be removed and sometimes must be removed, it is up to the patient to ensure they are in place around the clock except while eating, drinking, or performing dental hygiene. In other words, as the patient, you must commit to wearing the trays to get the desired results.

3. The Cost

Comparatively speaking, clear aligner treatment is comparable to the cost of traditional braces. In both cases, the cost is relative to the length of treatment time and the complexity of the orthodontic issue. Dental insurance will cover part of the cost.

A consultation with a dentist who provides clear aligner systems is the best way to get a personalized cost analysis for your treatment. There may be other ways to pay for this treatment. Discuss your options with a trusted provider.

According to Invisalign.com, the clear aligner system has improved the smiles of over 15 million people. If you are a teen or an adult wanting to change your smile, this may be the right treatment option. The only way to know is to make an appointment and discuss your options.
