Invisalign Before and After

How Does Invisalign Work?

Like traditional braces, Invisalign straightens your teeth over time. However, that’s where the similarities end. Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign doesn’t use wires, rubber bands, or dental cement to achieve a stunning smile. Instead, clients wear a series of clear aligners that are virtually invisible, which slowly reorient their teeth to the desired position. The result is the same as wearing braces, but Invisalign offers clients the added benefit of being nearly invisible and not being semi-permanently affixed to your teeth.

Clients will receive about 20 to 30 Invisalign clear aligners that gradually shift the orientation and position of their teeth. Usually, Invisalign patients will wear their set of aligners for 12 to 18 months.

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign is an equally effective and less-invasive orthodontic treatment than traditional braces, but there are additional benefits that give Invisalign an edge over its alternatives.

Results

Invisalign treatment is just as effective as braces at straightening the teeth of teens and adults alike. Also, there is a general misconception that braces correct orthodontic issues faster. This is untrue. The length of time a person needs to wear braces or Invisalign depends on how misaligned their teeth are and the severity of the orthodontic issues they need to address. Most people complete their treatment after 12 to 18 months.

Appearance

One of the biggest benefits of Invisalign treatment is that the aligners are basically invisible—it’s in the name. Metal braces are impossible to hide as they are semi-permanently cemented to your teeth. With Invisalign, people have to get extremely close to notice the outline of the clear plastic aligners. Most people won’t even be able to tell that you are straightening your teeth, even as you talk to them.

Convenience

Braces are a 24/7 affair. In addition to this, they are difficult to clean and prevent you from enjoying certain foods and drinks. Invisalign is a convenient alternative to traditional braces. You need to wear your Invisalign for 20 hours a day to get the maximum benefit. Eight of those hours will be spent sleeping. This gives you four hours out of your day where you don’t need to wear your Invisalign clear aligners. Plus, cleaning your teeth (and your aligner) is much easier than keeping up with the proper oral hygiene required by braces.

Comfort

Invisalign clear aligners are made of smooth, non-irritating plastic and fits tight against your teeth. You can forget the sore lips, the dental wax, and the rough metal brackets constantly irritating your mouth. Additionally, you don’t need to endure bi-weekly wire tightening. Instead, you switch to the next aligner in your program every two weeks.

Invisalign Cost

The total cost of Invisalign depends on several factors, including whether or not the patient has dental insurance and the amount of work they need to have completed. However, the cost is quite similar to traditional braces. Depending on these factors, a whole 18-month treatment plan with Invisalign can cause as low as $1,800 or as high as $10,000 out of pocket.

Invisalign FAQ

Invisalign is hardly noticeable. Unless you tell someone you are receiving the treatment, they likely wouldn’t know. Perceptive people might notice the slightest clear outline around your teeth.

Invisalign needs to be worn for 20 hours out of the day to experience maximum results. When you are wearing the aligner, you aren’t able to eat. However, you have 4 hours out of the day where you can eat anything you want. It’s recommended that you brush your teeth before putting the aligner back in your mouth.

Invisalign starts to work as soon as you begin treatment. As you move through the course of aligners, you’ll notice your new smile begin to take shape. After a few weeks, you’ll start to see your smile makeover.

Yes! Invisalign can correct an overbite, which is also known as a deep bite. In addition to overbites, Invisalign can help correct gaps between your teeth, underbites, open bites, crooked teeth, and crowded teeth.

If you want a convenient, discreet, and relatively comfortable way to straighten your teeth, Invisalign is certainly worth it.

Invisalign Process

After an initial consultation with Dr. Phong, the Invisalign process can begin. First, he will digitally scan the inside of your mouth. This step allows for Dr. Phong to visually calculate the course of treatment. After the 3D scan and calculations are complete, Invisalign takes the order and produces your set of aligners. 

Dr. Phong will then schedule routine follow-up appointments to check on the progress of your treatment and hand out the next batch of Invisalign clear aligners. After the main phase of the treatment is complete, you’ll then receive a maintenance retainer to keep that lovely new smile.

Results

As long as you follow the plan set out by Dr. Phong, you will start to see the results of your Invisalign treatment after a few weeks. As you progress through the different Invisalign aligners, you’ll notice their shape—and your smile—will change. After a few months of treatment, you notice significant changes to your smile.

Invisalign vs. Braces

Invisalign aligners are just as effective as braces and take the same amount of time to complete treatment. In addition to this, they are more comfortable, can be removed at will, and are aesthetically the better choice. 

For just about every case—adult or teen alike—Invisalign is a better option than traditional braces. However, there are a few rare issues that only traditional braces can address.
