The Invisalign® System is a series of clear, overlay templates called “aligners.” These aligners have been created by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. The Invisalign System offers a less obtrusive solution to traditional braces.
Available to most patients, Invisalign is a great option to improve your smile in adulthood.
How Does Invisalign Work?
As an adult, you may be looking to boost your confidence by improving your smile. The Invisalign System is built to work with your business or social engagements by offering you a clear alternative to metal braces.
Invisalign is a subtle solution that gives you the same results as metal braces, but are virtually invisible. These custom clear aligners are produced using 3D computer imaging technology that maps out the current and desired state of your teeth.
These clear aligners are produced and worn for about two weeks before it’s time to replace with the next one in the series. Over time, these aligners will gradually shift your teeth into the desired spot. However, unlike traditional braces, Invisalign can be removed for cleaning, eating and drinking.
Some other key benefits to Invisalign are:
Discreetly straighten your teeth, as aligners are nearly invisible
Better oral hygiene, due to metal braces making brushing and flossing a hassle
No metal wires, making Invisalign very easy and comfortable to wear
It works! Invisalign has been proven to be just as effective as metal braces
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
The cost for this type of braces will vary, as it mostly depends on the amount of work that you may need. Other factors that affect cost are the length of your treatment and your insurance coverage. In the U.S., the average cost of treatment is around $3,000 - $7,000.
