How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign treatment in Frisco, TX, is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. Dr. Buchwald creates a unique, digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Based on the movements in your plan, Dr. Buchwald will then design your Invisalign aligners to apply just the right amount of force at the right time.
Each set of aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into their correct position, according to your treatment plan, until your beautiful new smile is created. For ideal tooth movement, Dr. Buchwald recommends wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours a day. He will also schedule you to change to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks depending on your plan. Throughout your Invisalign treatment, Dr. Buchwald will see you at regularly scheduled appointments to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned and make any adjustments to your aligners, if needed, to keep your teeth on track.
Benefits of Invisalign
When it comes to choosing Invisalign in Frisco to straighten your teeth or realign your bite, you’ll quickly discover the many benefits that cannot be attained with other orthodontic solutions. Whether you are the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, a teacher who is always smiling for a classroom of kids, or a self-conscious teenager or stay-at-home parent, you’ll never need to worry about compromising your daily appearance while working toward a healthier, more aesthetically pleasing smile. With the help of these clear aligners, you can enjoy greater flexibility and longer-lasting results. But if you’re interested in learning more about the multiple advantages that come with Invisalign, review the information below and contact us to schedule an appointment.
You will achieve a new and improved smile in less time than it takes with traditional metal braces. Because of the SmartTrack material and technology used to create your clear aligners, you can expect more precise and predictable movements, allowing you to enjoy a smoother, more comfortable treatment as well as faster results.
If you’re worried you’ll have to give up your favorite foods because of your orthodontic treatment, guess again. Invisalign does not hinder your day-to-day life at all. In fact, you will be instructed to remove your aligners while eating, drinking, and cleaning them. Not only will this simple step give you greater flexibility, but you’ll be able to freely enjoy the foods you love without worrying about spending precious time picking remnants out from between your brackets and wires. Instead, you can simply clean your teeth like normal once you are finished eating.
Easy to Maintain
Regular braces will often require you to buy special brushes and cleaning products to ensure your teeth and appliances remain in good shape throughout treatment. However, with Invisalign, you can rest easy knowing that your financial investment is going to pay for your aligners, not how you plan to maintain them. While you can purchase the Invisalign Cleaning Crystals, you can also opt to use a soft-bristled toothbrush, clear soap, and lukewarm water to keep your aligners clean and free of dried saliva and bacteria. All you need to remember to do is rinse them each time you take them out and put them back in, and you’ll need to clean them every day.
Clear Orthodontic Solution
With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about donning bulky metal brackets and wires. Instead, you can look forward to a clearer, more subtle method of orthodontic treatment. One of the great benefits of Invisalign in Frisco is that your aligners are made of clear plastic, which allows for a more discreet way to straighten your smile. Virtually transparent and invisible to others, you won’t need to worry about anyone else noticing your braces. This can be a welcomed realization for anyone who is self-conscious about the idea of orthodontics.
Nothing hurts more than soft oral tissues that are irritated by bulky brackets and wires. When wearing traditional braces, these appliances can rub against your gums, lips, cheeks, and tongue, causing oral sores to form. As a result, you’ll need to buy dental wax to place over the metal until your soft tissues toughen up. Fortunately, with Invisalign, the aligners are smooth and fit snugly against your teeth, allowing for a more comfortable treatment and little-to-no irritation.
Indications for Invisalign
Invisalign is extremely versatile at treating various orthodontic problems, such as:
If teeth sit too close to each other, this can create problems for effective cleaning. As a result, you become more susceptible to tooth decay and cavities. Invisalign can move your teeth to ensure adequate space is between them, making it easier to clean and maintain.
Spaces Between Teeth
If you have one or more spaces between your teeth in your mouth, this can lead to trapped bacteria and food particles, resulting in serious dental problems if left untreated. By using Invisalign aligners, they can work to bring your teeth closer together and into more proper alignment.
Invisalign is great for improving all types of bite problems, including an overbite, underbite, crossbite, and even an open bite. Not only will it reduce wear and tear on your teeth, but it will also alleviate chronic jaw pain.
Understanding the Cost of Invisalign
Because each treatment is so personalized, the cost of Invisalign in Frisco will vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors. During your Invisalign consultation, we’ll be sure to go over these factors with you, as well as how they affect the price of your treatment. We’ll also discuss insurance and other financing options to help you fit the cost of Invisalign treatment into your budget.
Factors That Affect the Cost of Invisalign
When determining the cost of Invisalign, three primary factors must be considered:
- Which arche(s) you’re straightening – Usually, patients will straighten their top and bottom arches, but not always.
- The complexity of the required tooth movements – Someone with a small gap between their two front teeth, for instance, will probably pay less than a patient with multiple extremely crooked teeth.
- The projected length of treatment – The longer your treatment will take, the more aligners you’ll have to wear. Thus, the higher your cost will be.
Invisalign vs. Smile Direct Club™: Which Costs More?
Maybe you’ve heard about “do-it-yourself” clear aligner kits like Smile Direct Club. These solutions cost significantly less than Invisalign, so if all you’re looking for is a “quick fix” for slightly crooked teeth, then Smile Direct Club may be right for you.
However, there is plenty of room for treatment to go wrong with DIY clear aligners. For example, there is a chance of incorrectly making impressions for the trays, which may end up causing serious orthodontic issues that would have to be treated by a professional anyway.
Does Dental Insurance Cover Invisalign?
Not all dental insurance plans cover orthodontic treatment. Many that do offer coverage only do so for traditional braces. This is not always the case, though. Our team members can work with your dental insurance company to ensure you’re receiving all of the benefits you qualify for. We can even handle the paperwork for you to make the whole process easier! If you have an FSA account, you might be able to use that to help cover the cost of Invisalign.
Options for Making Invisalign Affordable
Even if you don’t have insurance, the team at Buchwald Orthodontics has ways to make Invisalign affordable. For one, we have partnered with CareCredit, a third-party financing company that has helped countless American afford their dental and medical care. Many of their payment plans come with little to no interest. We also offer in-house payment plans that are interest-free and require no down payment!
