Why Choose Invisalign®?

Choosing the right teeth-straightening option can be challenging. After all, there are so many choices. You want a solution that will deliver results, but you may not be too excited about wearing metal braces for nearly two years. Many of our teen and adult patients have enjoyed the advantages of Invisalign. At Roy Orthodontics, we offer this revolutionary treatment for qualifying patients. Why choose Invisalign? Read on to find out.

A Brief Overview of Invisalign

Invisalign is an incredible alternative to traditional orthodontics. Instead of using metal bands, brackets, and wires to straighten your teeth, this system uses a series of clear plastic trays. These aligner trays are custom-crafted at a lab to fit snugly over your teeth. Every two weeks, the current trays are switched out for the next set in the series. The subtle movements shift your teeth into their desired positions, little by little. Thousands of patients have enjoyed successful results with Invisalign. Today, we will discuss a few of the benefits.

Aesthetically Pleasing

Because Invisalign trays are clear, they are virtually unnoticeable. Even though you will be wearing them all day, other people will not be able to tell. This is the primary reason people choose Invisalign.

Removable Trays

Invisalign trays are removable for your convenience. While others who choose metal braces have some food restrictions, you will be able to eat all of your favorite foods without worry. Additionally, Invisalign makes oral hygiene a breeze! You will not need to meticulously clean around brackets and wires. Simply remove your trays to brush and floss, and place them back in your mouth when you are finished.

Optimal Comfort

Because Invisalign is made of 100 percent thermoplastic materials, there is no metal to irritate your lips and cheeks. The trays are sleek and elegant, and offer optimal comfort throughout the day.

Fewer Orthodontic Visits

During traditional orthodontic treatment, most patients require checkups every four to six weeks. When you choose Invisalign, you will only need to visit our office about once every six to 12 weeks. This means more free time in your busy schedule.

Comparable Cost to Traditional Orthodontics

Many patients assume that Invisalign treatment is more expensive than traditional orthodontics. On the contrary, the cost is typically comparable. Your total treatment cost will be determined by the complexity of your case. For example, if your teeth require substantial movement, treatment will necessitate more trays, which in turn means a higher lab cost. Someone with minor misalignment issues will likely not pay as much, because fewer trays are required to correct the problem. During your initial visit with Dr. Carl Roy, we should be able to give you a cost estimate for your treatment.

Other Considerations

Invisalign is an effective and convenient option for many patients. However, it is important to understand it is not for everyone. This type of treatment is ideal for addressing minor misalignment and cosmetic issues. However, it cannot correct more complex conditions. Therefore, if your bite needs improvement, or if you have skeletal issues contributing to your malocclusion, then traditional orthodontics may be a better choice for you.

My sincere thanks to Dr. Roy and his team for showing me the way! My baby teeth had to be crowned for years since 2 of my adult teeth never came in. This was just one piece of the puzzle that needed figuring out. I’m proud of my smile and it shows every time I meet someone!Liz

Dr. Roy and his team has been nothing short of a blessing to me. I was stationed in Virginia four years ago, I came to Dr. Roy with braces from another Orthodontist, instead of pushing me away like most doctors due to not wanting to finish another's work he was more than welcoming. Due to after care with retainers I wasnt as diligent as I should to wear them often Dr. Roy and staff always made me feel wanted and warm to start the process over. Many days I didn't want to smile, his team always brought cheer. I was actually refereed to him by someone else and I shared the candor and referred someone also. I said to myself " does anyone here have a bad day, everyone is literally always smiling". It saddens me a bit to have my braces off because I wont see their smiling faces monthly. But, if you want fair over the top treatment, Dr. Roy and staff will ensure 5 star treatment. They are truly a blessing, I wish I could give more than 5 stars.

My son was need of palate expanders and braces and Dr. Roy and his staff have been such a blessing to us! He was only 8 years of age when this was all needed and they treated him with such professionalism and ease! Dr. Roy has such a love and compassion for his patients and families! What could have been a nightmare for my son was actually the exact opposite because of his expertise in this field. Karen, Sandy and the whole office staff is amazing!!! I would highly recommend this practice who is need of their services! Thank you Dr. Roy and staff for helping our son! May God continue to bless your wonderful practice and employees!!

Dr Roy and his staff have provided Orthodontic care for both of my children. The best thing I can say about Dr Roy is he always puts the needs of the child and their long term orthodontic care first. It isn’t just about putting braces on your kids to have straight teeth for pictures it is about treating them at the appropriate age so that the care they receive is appropriate and will last them into adulthood and more importantly won’t have to be repeated when they finish growing. As a parent it was so refreshing to deal with a practice as practical and professional as Roy Orthodontics. I recommend them to anyone seeking orthodontics for their children.

I am thrilled with my results from Roy Orthodontics. I am happy to say that my jaw is pain free for the first time in years. My joint popped, cracked and hurt after I had braces as a teenager. Now, I not only look good but I feel good too. Thank you Dr. Roy and your amazing staff for investing your time in being the best. This team of experts will certainly give you a reason to smile!
