Am I a Good Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign can treat mild to severe orthodontic issues, including:
If you have a bite problem, like an overbite, underbite, or crossbite, it can place undue pressure on your jaw joint and cause issues like teeth grinding and jaw clenching. Luckily, Invisalign can fix this.
Spaces Between Teeth
Besides being widely considered unattractive, having a gapped smile increases your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath, because bits of food can get stuck in the spaces. Invisalign can more evenly spread out your teeth.
Teeth that are too close together can be hard to efficiently clean them, increasing your risk for oral infections and cavities. Invisalign can help line up your teeth properly.
How Does the Treatment Process Work?
Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligner trays to shift your teeth into a more aligned position over the course of about a year. They’re designed to be worn for at least 22 hours a day. Each set of trays focuses on adjusting one tiny portion of your smile until your entire grin is perfectly aligned. You’ll wear each set for about two weeks, then move on to the next in the series.
Unlike with traditional braces, you won’t need to visit us for adjustments. However, you will have to come see Dr. Barakat, your dentist in Vienna, every six to eight weeks to receive your new aligners and let us evaluate your progress.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign offers a whole host of benefits, including:
Because your aligners are removable, they come with zero dietary restrictions, unlike metal brackets and wires. You can also take them out whenever you need to brush and floss, allowing for easy teeth cleaning. If you have a special event, like a job interview or a wedding, you can take them out for that, as long as you remember to place them back in afterwards!
While traditional braces often require at least 24 to 36 months of treatment, most Invisalign patients achieve straight smiles in as little as one year. You’ll also need to visit us a lot less frequently, and for shorter appointments.
Comfort and Safety
The brackets and wires of metal braces can irritate and even damage the tongue and gums. By contrast, Invisalign’s smooth plastic trays are designed to prevent soft tissue irritation as they exert a gentle pressure to align your teeth.
Even if you get tooth-colored or clear braces in Vienna, they are still noticeable in your smile. Invisalign, on the other hand, allows you to receive the orthodontic treatment you need while being perfectly discreet.
Understanding the Cost of Invisalign
No two mouths are created equal, and neither are any two Invisalign treatments. That means that the price you’ll end up paying is different for each and every person. The final cost can be influenced by many factors, such as your age and your dedication to wearing your aligners. Of course, the best way to find out how much you’ll pay is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Barakat!
