Discover Our Dallas Invisalign Dentist

We understand that you want a straight smile, but may not necessarily love the look of traditional metal braces. Now, you can get the results you want with Invisalign.

At Rio Dental & Orthodontics, we offer clear aligners for a more discrete orthodontic look. Instead of brackets and wires pulling your teeth into alignment, they are gradually moved into their ideal positions using a nearly invisible treatment.

What Are Invisalign Costs in Dallas?

Dallas Invisalign Dentist

Invisalign offers added comfort and a more discrete look for around the same cost as braces. Many factors can determine the total cost of treatment, including your current tooth alignment, any outstanding dental issues, and the number of aligners you’ll need.

Because Invisalign can help with dental and medical issues, dental insurance plans often cover a portion of the treatment. In your initial consultation, our team will provide an estimated total cost of the treatment so you can maximize the use of your insurance benefits. We also offer many payment options to cover the remaining balance.

Invisalign FAQs

Dallas Invisalign

Invisalign has become wildly popular: more than 2.5 million individuals, including children, teens, and adults, have opted for this option to correct their bite and alignment issues.

We understand that you may have questions about the aligners since they are a newer treatment option. We’ve answered some of your most common questions so you can feel confident and secure in your choice.

If you’re planning on pursuing Invisalign in the DFW metro, our team will gladly answer any additional questions you may have.

What Can Invisalign Help With?

Invisalign can correct many different bite and alignment problems, such as rotated, crooked, or tilted teeth. It can fix many different orthodontic issues, but there are some limitations, such as overly large gaps or more severe bite issues. During your consultation, your orthodontist will evaluate your needs and determine what treatment will be best for you.

How Long Do I Have to Wear the Aligners?

You should wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day for them to be as effective as possible. Each aligner will be used for about 1-2 weeks depending on the specific regimen your orthodontist prescribes to you. For the treatment to be successful, you must wear them consistently and as much as your doctor tells you to.

Can I Eat What I Want?

Since you can remove the aligners, there are no restrictions on what you can and can’t eat. After you finish eating, brushing your aligners and teeth should be a priority to avoid stains and tooth decay. One of the key benefits of Invisalign is that you no longer have to worry about getting food stuck in wires or damaging the brackets of traditional braces!

Can I Have Coffee With Invisalign?

Technically, yes you can have the occasional caffeinated and sugary beverage with Invisalign, however, there are several caveats to consuming too much. The contents of soda, tea, coffee, and juices can be harsh on your teeth, which will already be sensitive as your treatment progresses. The acidic and sugary components of these beverages could wear down or stain your teeth and aligners as well.

Consuming these beverages in moderation and maintaining a strict oral hygiene routine, are keys to avoiding unwanted stains and other problems during treatment. Water is always safe to consume while wearing your set of aligners.

How To Clean Your Invisalign Case & Aligners

Maintaining your oral hygiene with Invisalign is easier than ever. You don’t have to worry about cleaning around any brackets, wires, or hard-to-reach places. You still of course need to continue with brushing and flossing as usual and clean your aligners each day.

Use clear, antibacterial soap and a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean all of the aligner’s surfaces.

Make sure never to use hot water to clean it, as it could bend the plastic aligners and change its shape. You should also follow the same routine with the case to avoid bacterial growth.

How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?

The duration of your treatment is determined by how many aligners are needed. On average, many patients finish their series in 12 months – a much faster treatment plan than braces! When your Invisalign treatment is complete, you will get a custom-made retainer so your teeth maintain their proper alignment for life.

Are Clear Aligners Comfortable to Wear?

Invisalign clear aligners are made with smooth plastic that fits perfectly around each tooth to provide a comfortable wearing experience. It might take you a few days to adjust, but in time you won’t even be able to tell you’re wearing them.

Can Invisalign Cause Headaches?

Much like traditional braces, Invisalign can cause headaches during the beginning of your treatment. This is a common side effect of the aligners slowly straightening your teeth. If the headaches persist and become unbearable, speak with your orthodontist about relief options.

Can I Receive Invisalign After Traditional Orthodontics?

Yes! Many patients who have severe bite issues receive traditional braces and then switch to Invisalign for tooth alignment. This will cut down on the time you have traditional braces, so you can enjoy Invisalign for the rest of your orthodontic treatment.
