The greatest majority of the adults with crooked and misaligned teeth avoided getting proper treatment because the sole available solution was wearing metal braces. These braces are visible, and they do not really help one having a pleasant smile.
Now you can forget about the “metal smile” because the Invsaligns are made from a special clear plastic, so while you are performing your dental straightening treatment nobody will know you are wearing braces.
The Invisaligns are custom made dental braces which correct crooked smiles. Typically, patients will have to visit their orthodontist every two to three weeks to get new custom made aligners, or to get the needed adjustments. Wearing Invisaligns is completely discreet, no wonder they have become so popular.
One extremely important fact to keep in mind is that not everybody is a perfect candidate for Invisaligns though. Patients with extremely complex crooked teeth would need to opt for the metal braces.
These metal braces have got a much bigger “power” in straightening stubbornly crooked teeth. The force of the Invisalign upon the teeth is somewhat weaker. This is why, you should visit your orthodontist and ask him whether you would be a good candidate for Invisaligns or not.
Invisaligns represent the perfect solution for:
- -patients with mildly crooked/misaligned teeth
- -patients with gaps between their teeth
- -patients with mild underbite and overbite issues
- -overly crowded teeth & crossbite patients
Invisalign dental braces are not cheap. However if you will invest quality time into research you might find an orthodontist in your area who charges down to earth prices. Try to choose a dental clinic which is located in a smaller town, or at the outskirts.
These clinics generally charge much lower prices than famous dental clinics in big city centers. The national average cost for Invisalign dental braces is $4,500 to $5,000. However, you can find orthodontists offering this type of treatment for only $3,500 but also orthodontists charging a whopping $8,000.
Invisalign should be covered by dental insurance. As long as you have enough coverage, the method of treatment should not matter. However, you may want to check with your insurer to make sure that Invisalign dental braces are covered to certain extent.
Dental plans with orthodontic benefits are more expensive than plans without such care included, but it is definitely worth having this provision if you are struggling with orthodontic issues.
Depending on the seriousness of your dental problem, you might need anything between 8 and up to 16 or more Invisalign trays fitted on. This equals just as many dental visits throughout your treatment, so you really need to keep up with all the required appointments if you want that perfect smile in the end.
