Invisalign® for Teens and Adults
Part of feeling great is feeling confident! And part of building that confidence is loving your smile! Orthodontic treatment like braces can help you perfect your beautiful smile. For some teens and adults, traditional braces may not be their first choice. Braces are very obvious and some teens and adults prefer a more lowkey smile straightening alternative. For those teens and adults, there is Invisalign®.
Invisalign® is a modern alternative to traditional braces. Braces are traditionally made from metal brackets and wires. These brackets and wires are placed to strategically shift teeth into the correct positions and correct bite issues as well. Invisalign® offers a more discrete alternative to this practice. Rather than metal brackets and wires, teeth are shifted gradually with a series of clear plastic liners. These liners are to be worn in succession with one another and changed every two weeks to continue the shifting process. Invisalign® corrects many orthodontic concerns the same way braces do, just in a different way.
Invisalign® is an exceptional orthodontic option for both teens and adults for a number of reasons.
Most times, Invisalign® is actually cheaper than traditional braces. Traditional braces cost anywhere from $3,000 – $8,000. Invisalign® typically costs between $2,500 – $6,000. The exact price of treatment depends on the degree of complexity for the treatment required to address the orthodontic issues at hand.
Invisalign® treatments are virtually undetectable compared to traditional braces. Because the liners are clear, they cannot be seen the same way you see traditional braces. This is perfect for teens and adults that may be self-conscious about traditional braces.
Believe it or not, Invisalign® treatments might even be faster than traditional braces. Traditional braces take an average of 18 months, all the way up to three years! Invisalign® allows wearers to see results in a matter of weeks and total treatment takes anywhere from 12 to 24 months.
Invisalign® is designed to be worn for 23 hours out of the day but can be removed when patients are eating or brushing their teeth. Their ability to be removed makes it easier for patients to clean their teeth properly. Efficiency does not stop there, though. Invisalign® helps treat just about every orthodontic calamity, from crooked teeth to issues with bites!
