What Does Invisalign Treat?
Invisalign is successful at treating a wide range of issues, such as crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, gaps between teeth, crossbites, and open bites, or just to generally straighten teeth. Leaving any of these issues untreated could pose risks to your overall oral health, which is why a cost-effective, minimally invasive solution like Invisalign is desirable to so many people.
How Long Does Invisalign Take?
The average treatment time is usually less than one year, but it depends on the extent of the crowding and whether there are any underlying complex bite problems. In general, it is twice as fast as conventional braces. The reason it varies is because Invisalign is a totally custom solution. So your treatment plan is completely centered on your individual needs.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Much like how the length of treatment time varies due to individual needs, the cost of treatment varies as well. But compared to the cost of traditional metal braces, Invisalign is always going to be more cost-effective because it takes less time and requires fewer office visits. Plus, the advanced technology allows for greater precision and efficiency during treatment, which results in not only a cost savings but a more pleasant experience for the patient.
What Does It Mean to Be an Elite Invisalign Provider?
To gain Elite Invisalign Provider status, a dentist must successfully treat 300 patients and continue to conduct a minimum of 50 cases every six months. This level of experience means that you benefit from the kind of care a seasoned, highly skilled dentist can provide. In addition, you will benefit from a more streamlined, efficient treatment process than you would with a less experienced provider. At Cosmetic Dental Associates, our team has successfully completed more than 1,300 Invisalign cases.
How Is an Invisalign Treatment Plan Made?
Your Invisalign treatment starts with a 3-D digital smile scan to assess your needs and determine whether Invisalign is the right solution. From there, your dentist works with Invisalign’s team to design the best treatment plan. Then, your custom aligners are created.
Is Invisalign Effective?
Invisalign is extremely effective at treating a variety of issues. It is perhaps the most effective orthodontic treatment available today. Since Invisalign was the first clear aligner system on the market, and due to continual improvements to the technology, it remains the most effective treatment option for most individuals.
Why Should I Choose Invisalign?
Invisalign is the #1 clear aligner system – and the oldest. The computer-guided systems, customized plans, and advanced technology are what sets Invisalign apart from all other orthodontic treatment options.
