Invisalign® in Blue Bell, PA

In the past, crooked teeth and unsightly gaps could only be corrected with equally unsightly metal braces. Today’s dentists have a better solution. They know how to straighten teeth discreetly without the awkward metal hardware using the Invisalign® system.

What You Need to Know About Invisalign

Invisalign clear plastic aligner trays fit over your teeth. Because they’re transparent and virtually invisible, you can maintain a more natural appearance during treatment. When your dentist designs your treatment plan, he or she will create a series of aligner sets that are worn for two weeks each. Over a period of months, the succession of trays slowly moves your teeth into the desired positions. Invisalign dentists use the aligners to correct a wide variety of minor and moderate orthodontic problems.

How Invisalign Cost Is Determined

Invisalign treatment cost is different for everyone and depends on several variables. Your Invisalign insurance coverage and the complexity of your orthodontic needs are the two biggest factors affecting overall Invisalign cost. More complex and lengthy treatments will cost more. Many patients obtain affordable Invisalign for a price comparable to that of traditional braces. If you’re concerned about how Invisalign cost might affect your budget, we may be able to help you get Invisalign in Blue Bell more easily. Contact our office to discuss our convenient Invisalign financing options.

Estimating Invisalign Treatment Time

Because each case is unique, only your dentist can accurately estimate your length of treatment with Invisalign. Statistically, most adults and teens can complete treatment within a year or so. Complicated cases may require up to twice that long. After your Invisalign aligners have successfully remodeled your smile, you’ll need to wear Invisalign retainers on a long-term basis to prevent shifting.

The Value of Experienced Invisalign Dentists

To become an Invisalign dentist, an orthodontist or general dentist must have experience and training in using Invisalign dentistry to correct mild to moderate orthodontic irregularities. Our Invisalign dentists are highly skilled and capable of helping you get the best results from your treatment.

Invisalign vs Braces: Are They Both Effective?

In many cases, Invisalign is just as effective as braces at repositioning teeth and correcting malocclusion. When Invisalign vs braces becomes a battle of benefits, Invisalign is a clear winner. It gives you the ability to maintain a more natural look throughout your treatment, and it can even help prevent tooth and gum disease by giving you full access to all of your tooth surfaces during your oral hygiene routine. Cleaning around the brackets and wires of metal braces is challenging and often ineffective.

Beyond Appearances: More Benefits of Invisalign

A more attractive smile isn’t the only perk of wearing aligners. Here are more Invisalign benefits that our patients get to enjoy:

  • Freedom from injuries caused by metal wires
  • An unrestricted diet
  • Fully removable trays
  • Easier brushing and flossing
  • Fewer dental visits during treatment

Who Can Get Invisalign?

Many adults with mild to moderate orthodontic conditions can enjoy the benefits of wearing Invisalign aligners. However, not everyone is a candidate. People with severe malocclusion, wide spaces between teeth and other advanced conditions may get faster and better results from wearing traditional braces. Dental experts recommend Invisalign for adults and teens, but children’s dental needs are often too complex for aligner treatments. To explore your options and find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, contact us to set up a comprehensive evaluation by one of our skilled Invisalign dentists.

Invisalign Treatment and Patient Lifestyle

Wearing Invisalign aligners doesn’t dramatically alter lifestyle or daily functioning. You remove your aligners before eating, so there are no specific dietary changes. However, you should avoid habits that can damage your aligners; these include chewing gum during treatment and smoking.

Taking Good Care of Your Invisalign Trays

Using the Invisalign cleaning system is a convenient way to ensure that your aligners stay sanitary. When you’re not able to use the system, you can simply brush your aligners and rinse them with warm or cool water. Be sure to wear your trays as directed, and don’t expose them to hot water or hot foods and beverages. If an Invisalign tray becomes damaged, be sure to contact your dentist for a replacement.
