Cost of Invisalign

Cost of InvisalignOften, it is believed Invisalign in Irving costs more than traditional braces, but this is not true. In fact, both treatments are about the same amount. When determining how much you will pay, there are several factors that influence the price, such as the number of aligners needed.

To help lower the amount you will pay out-of-pocket, many dental insurances now cover a portion of the treatment. During your initial consultation, we will provide you with an estimate and help you maximize the value of your insurance benefits. To cover the remaining balance, we offer many payment options.

Invisalign FAQs

InvisalignMore than 2.5 million teens and adults have made the choice to correct their bite and alignment concerns with Invisalign. When compared to metal braces, you will enjoy a convenient treatment.

More than 2.5 million teens and adults have made the choice to correct their bite and alignment concerns with Invisalign. When compared to metal braces, you will enjoy a convenient treatment. However, because these clear aligners are a newer dental technology, many patients still have questions about them. That’s why we’ve developed a list of answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about Invisalign in Irving.

What Issues can Invisalign Correct?

Invisalign can correct several alignment and bite problems, such as rotated and tilted teeth. While it can fix many issues, there are some limitations, like overly large gaps or severe bite problems. Your orthodontist in Irving will conduct a thorough consultation to ensure it is the right treatment for you.

How Long Do I Have to Wear the Aligners?

It is recommended you wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day. You will use each one in the series for 1 to 2 weeks, depending on our orthodontist’s advice. Your commitment to wearing them consistently will directly impact the success of your treatment.

Can I Eat What I Want?

Because the aligners are removable, there are no dietary restrictions; however, it is best to only have water while wearing them. After eating or drinking, rinse your aligners with water and brush your teeth before placing them back into your mouth. With clear aligners, you won’t have to worry about food getting caught or damaging your metal brackets and wires.

How Do I Clean My Aligners?

Oral hygiene is a breeze with Invisalign because there are no brackets or wires to clean around. In addition to brushing and flossing, you will need to clean your aligners daily. Use a clear antibacterial soap and a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean all of your aligner’s surfaces. Be sure to avoid using hot water because it could permanently warp the plastic, impacting the effectiveness of your treatment.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

The duration of your treatment is determined by how many aligners are needed. On average, many patients are finished with their series in 12 months. This is typically much faster than traditional braces! When you’re done, we will provide you with a retainer to prevent your teeth from moving back into their previous positions, giving you straight teeth for the rest of your life.

Are Clear Aligners Comfortable to Wear?

Invisalign clear aligners are made with smooth plastic that fits snugly around each tooth for a comfortable wearing experience. While it may take a few days to adjust, you’ll begin to forget that you’re even wearing your trays over time.

Can I Receive Invisalign After Traditional Orthodontics?

Yes! Many patients that have severe bite issues elect for traditional braces. Then, once their bite problems are corrected, they switch to Invisalign to align their teeth. This allows patients to spend less time in traditional braces, finishing their treatment with clear and comfortable Invisalign.

Explain to your child that the doctor will “count, brush, and maybe take pictures of their teeth”. We also ask that you assume the role of a silent observer. Cooperation and trust must be established directly between the doctor, staff, and your child and not through you. Your child may become confused if receiving instructions from multiple sources.
