Benefits of Invisalign

If you’re one of the many people born with teeth that aren’t naturally straight. You know how much crooked teeth and a misaligned bite can impact your life in terms of both your health and social life. It used to mean that you would need a mouth full of metal brackets and wires to correct your teeth, which helped with your oral health but didn’t do much for your social life. Luckily, today there’s Invisalign – a clear braces solution for those of us who want a straight smile but weren’t lucky enough to be born with one.

The benefits of Invisalign are varied, ranging from cosmetic to health benefits. To find out more about Invisalign benefits, watch this video from Houston cosmetic dentist Dr. Amanda Canto. In it she discusses the benefits of Invisalign and why these clear braces are such a great solution.

Invisalign clear braces are:

  • Removable – Eating and drinking are just as easy as ever.
  • Easy Care – Just remove them to brush and floss as normal.
  • Nearly Invisible – You can feel confident wearing the clear aligners.
  • Comfortable – The aligners are custom-made and flexible, fitting easily into your mouth.
  • Convenient – Simply switch aligners – no need for painful adjustments.
  • Fast – The average Invisalign treatment lasts about one year.

While many teeth straightening options are available, few offer the level of comfort, convenience and confidence that you’ll find with Invisalign.

How does Invisalign work?

When you think of Invisalign, you might not really think of them as braces. True, they fall more in line with what we picture retainers to be. However, Invisalign is a clear braces system that can give you straighter teeth without all the embarrassment of those metal brackets and wires that you usually imagine braces being. These clear braces are an amazing solution for people with crooked or crowded teeth. If you’ve been dreaming of a straighter smile without the hassle and discomfort of traditional braces, Invisalign might be the perfect solution for you.

Length of Clear Braces Treatment

Have you thought about correcting your smile with Invisalign? While clear braces can get you to your end result, how long will it take? Invisalign is a clear braces system that is perfect for adults who want a beautiful smile; it can take a little longer than traditional braces, but you won’t have the ugly wires and brackets on their teeth.

Traditional braces can be an inconvenience for adults and can be an embarrassment at times. In this video Houston Dentist, Dr. Amanda Canto explains how long you would need to wear your Invisalign clear braces system.

Invisalign treatment depends on the individual and the severity of the case. On average the treatment usually takes about 12 months. If it is a minor case the treatment can be as little as six to nine months, and if it is a more severe case clear braces can take up to 24 months for you to get that amazing smile.

Is Invisalign A Cosmetic Solution?

Invisalign may seem like a cosmetic solution, and in certain ways it is. However, they’re only really a cosmetic solution in the sense that they straighten your teeth. This is the same thing braces do, so they fall in more with orthodontics. Some of the benefits of Invisalign are cosmetic because these clear braces are much less embarrassing than traditional braces. Without a mouth filled with metal, you might still feel comfortable smiling. This is because Invisalign is much more discrete with its clear aligners than braces are with their metal brackets. Because it’s not considered to be a cosmetic solution, Invisalign is also covered by more dental insurance plans. If you need to adjust your bite, be sure to check your policy for Invisalign coverage!

“Am I a good Invisalign candidate? Is Invisalign right for me?”

These are very common questions, and they can be a little tricky to answer because different dentists have different techniques for treating their patients. While some dentists will tell you that Invisalign isn’t right for you, another will tell you that you’ll see amazing results as an Invisalign candidate. Neither of them is really wrong. It’s more just that dentists have their own preferences or methods.

The truth is that as long as you have reasonably healthy teeth and a strong enough jaw structure, anyone can be the perfect Invisalign candidate. Sometimes it depends on what you’re looking for in terms of results. Invisalign will straighten your teeth, but if you’re hoping for more than that, other cosmetic procedures, such as porcelain veneers or dental implants, might be better for you. Luckily, Cosmetic Dentists of Houston offers its patients a full service dental clinic in a spa-like environment, so we can take care of practically any dental procedure you’d like.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

Many of our patients come to our Houston dental office wondering about the Invisalign cost. It’s not always easy to answer because the cost varies with each case. This is because the treatment is customized to adjust your bite.

The cost of the overall clear braces treatment depends on the complexity of your case and the length of time that you’re in treatment. It can range anywhere from $3500 to $6500. However, it’s worth every single penny when you get to flash your beautiful new smile!

While there are many teeth straightening options are available, few of them offer the level of comfort, convenience, and confidence that you’ll find with Invisalign.

Invisalign and your Insurance

Is Invisalign covered by your dental insurance? The answer to that isn’t very easy. It all depends on your particular insurance company and what your plan covers. If you have a higher level insurance plan than most people, Invisalign could be covered either totally or partially. In most cases, dental insurance won’t cover clear braces systems like Invisalign completely, but in particular cases, the system is included under all orthodontics.

Are you a good candidate for Invisalign? The insurance department at our Galleria-area cosmetic dentistry practice is happy to verify what your insurance will cover in terms of orthodontics and clear braces systems. Come in and visit Dr. Amanda Canto at Cosmetic Dentists of Houston for a free Invisalign consultation, and she can answer all your questions about clear braces and help you find out what your dental insurance will cover.

Invisalign FAQ

While traditional braces can be uncomfortable, even painful at times, and make eating and cleaning a hassle, Invisalign is a system of removable aligners. Since you can take them out to eat and brush, they can be much healthier than braces. Every few weeks, you’ll come in to our Galleria-area dental office and receive a new set of aligners. Each set of aligners is customized for your teeth. As you progress through the system, the series of aligners gradually shifts your teeth into their proper positioning.

By the end of the treatment, you’ll have a straight smile that you’ll be proud to show off! After the treatment, you’ll be given a new set of clear aligners to wear as retainers.

Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth using a custom-made series of aligners custom-created for you. These aligner trays are made of a smooth, comfortable and invisible plastic that is worn over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place based on the exact movements that Dr. Canto will plan out for you.

Invisalign treatment is usually covered by both orthodontic insurance and FSA plans, and is generally comparable with the cost of traditional metal braces. Cosmetic Dentists of Houston also offers flexible and affordable payment plans. Read more! Find out more about the cost of Invisalign.

At Cosmetic Dentists of Houston, our Invisalign process is quick and convenient. You place a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete. As with all dentistry procedures the total length of treatment time is individual to you. but the average Invisalign treatment takes less than 12 months.

Your aligners may be removed for special occasions, meals and cleaning your teeth. For best results we recommend you wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day.

It’s close! These clear aligners are very discreet. As long as you keep them clean, they’re practically unnoticeable. The trays can stain, so it’s important to try to avoid coffee and colored liquids that might leave marks on the trays. It’s also very important that you keep them clean. While you’re brushing your teeth, you can brush the aligners and rinse them off. However, you shouldn’t use toothpaste on them. Toothpaste can leave the aligners looking cloudy.

If you take proper care of your aligners, they’ll remain clear and nearly invisible. No one will be the wiser, and you can go through your treatment without feeling self-conscious!

The aligner trays are very comfortable, especially when compared to the alternative of brackets and wires. Each set of aligners is fully customized for your mouth so that they fit over your teeth perfectly. When you first receive a set, you might feel some discomfort, but this is only temporary. You’ll get used to each set very quickly as you wear them.

An added bonus, as mentioned earlier, is that the aligners are removable. While brushing, flossing, eating, and even speaking can be difficult with traditional braces, Invisalign makes it as natural as it would be without braces, because you just pop the tray out and back in when you’re done. However, it’s important to note here that eating and cleaning are the only times you should remove the trays. They need to be in for about 23 hours each day!
