Invisalign – Wayne, PA
Achieve Straighter Teeth WITHOUT Braces
Crooked teeth certainly fall short of their aesthetic potential; they can cause you to hold back from showing off that charming smile of yours. Moreover, misaligned teeth pose a real danger to your oral health. For example, they may be more likely to develop cavities because they are difficult to clean, and they can contribute to TMJ disorder.
Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer through the annoyance and embarrassment of traditional metal braces if you want to achieve a healthier, more attractive smile. Invisalign in Wayne may be perfect for you. It uses a series of clear thermoplastic aligners to straighten teeth discreetly and efficiently.
The Cost of Invisalign
The cost of your Invisalign treatment will depend on how many aligners you need, whether you need any attachments for your aligners, and the severity of your orthodontic problems. In many cases, the cost of Invisalign is in the same ballpark as traditional metal braces.
During your Invisalign consultation, we’ll be happy to provide you with a personalized estimate on the cost of your treatment. We can also help you explore ways to fit Invisalign into your budget. Insurance coverage and financing may be able to help you afford your procedure.
What Is Daily Life Like With Invisalign?
You must wear your aligner for 20 – 22 hours each day, removing it only when you eat, drink anything other than plain water, and clean your teeth. You’re allowed to enjoy all of your favorite foods and beverages as long as you’re determined to stick to an excellent oral hygiene routine.
What If I Accidentally Damage an Aligner?
Mishaps may cause one of your aligners to become warped, stained, or otherwise unusable. Don’t try to continue using an aligner if it no longer fits correctly. You may need to temporarily go back to wearing a previous aligner until you can get a replacement for the damaged one. Give our office a call, and we’ll give you specific guidance on how to handle the situation.
Is Invisalign Painful?
It’s normal for your mouth to be a little sore at times throughout Invisalign treatment, especially when you start wearing a new aligner. You can manage such discomfort through mild painkillers and other simple coping techniques. Invisalign should never cause you serious pain.
How Long Does Invisalign Take?
Treatment time varies from person to person. If your misalignment issues are relatively minor, it may take just a few months for you to achieve your final results. However, average treatment time is 12 – 18 months. That is in stark contrast to traditional braces, which may take up to three years to complete their job.
To make sure you get through your Invisalign course as quickly as possible, you should be diligent about wearing your aligners the recommended amount and never skip your scheduled checkups.
