The primary benefits of Invisalign include its discreet appearance, comfortable fit, and convenience for daily activities such as eating and brushing. In addition, Invisalign's custom-made aligners gradually shift teeth into the desired position, providing a highly effective alternative to traditional metal braces.
While Invisalign can be an effective orthodontic treatment for many people, it may not be suitable for everyone. The decision to use Invisalign will depend on factors such as the complexity of the dental issues being addressed and the patient's level of commitment to wearing the aligners for the recommended amount of time.
Invisalign works by using a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made to fit over a patient's teeth. Each aligner applies gentle pressure to gradually shift the teeth into the desired position, and the patient switches to a new aligner every one to two weeks. Over time, this process effectively moves the teeth into their correct alignment.
The cost of Invisalign treatment varies depending on several factors, including the length and complexity of the treatment and the location of the orthodontic practice. In general, Invisalign can be more expensive than traditional metal braces, but many patients find the benefits of Invisalign, such as its discreet appearance and convenience, to be worth the additional cost.
In general, if a patient has orthodontic coverage, Invisalign is usually covered to the same extent as conventional braces. However, it's always best to check with your insurance provider or orthodontist to determine the specifics of your policy and coverage for Invisalign treatment.
