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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
