As a method of teeth straightening, Invisalign comes with a lot of advantages right away compared to braces. That makes the tool very attractive for adults who may not have had the chance to receive dental treatment as a child but would like to realize better teeth later in life.
In addition to being clear and not outwardly visible, like traditional braces, Invisalign aligners can be taken off to eat, they tend to cost less than braces for treatment, they are not visible when worn, so appearance is not affected, and they move a patient’s teeth with less pain and discomfort in the process.
What to Expect
The first step with any Invisalign consultation starts with a dentist’s examination. An orthodontist typically manages the fitting and sizing of Invisalign to ensure the tool is used correctly for the best effect. This type of dentist is going to establish a full plan and schedule for the patient and how the aligners will achieve the desired output in teeth straightening.
Once complete and the aligners are developed and sized to the patient’s mouth, the dentist will follow up regularly to track improvement and when the aligners should be changed to keep the straightening process moving along.
The cost will be noticeably lower than traditional braces and can be funded with a variety of choices, including health savings accounts, payment plans, and more options. While there is still a price involved, patients will find in comparison that Invisalign provides a very good value for the results.
