Invisalign® Dentists in Northwest Indiana: A Smile You Can Be Proud to Showcase!
Straightening the teeth with clear “aligners” is a fantastic way to conservatively improve one’s smile, improve chewing efficiency, and easing the task of keeping one’s teeth and gums healthy. Traditional braces can be effective, but Invisalign usage has become an attractive option for people who would prefer teeth straightening without metal braces.
Why Invisalign for Straighter Teeth?
Many teenage and adult patients don’t want to have metal brackets and wires on their teeth. A common concern is the potential for sores or ulcers on the inner lips and cheeks, and others are concerned about the aesthetic compromise of metal brackets and wires.
Invisalign solves these problems with the use of clear, custom-fit “aligners.” They are much more aesthetic and won’t cut the inside of the mouth. These aligners are as comfortable as bleaching trays, are worn for two weeks each, and they move the teeth into a new alignment very carefully and predictably. Most cases take about fourteen months to achieve a fantastic result.
The entire Invisalign treatment plan is designed with 3-D computer imaging. This begins with the initial teeth positioning and predicts movements until the desired final positions. This 3-D imaging creates a very predictable and precise process before even beginning treatment.
Patients wear their Invisalign aligners for almost twenty-four hours per day, only taking them out to eat, brush, and floss. Therefore, there are no restrictions on what can be eaten, and there are no problems with brushing or flossing. Patients come in every six weeks to check on the progress, make adjustments as needed, and to receive their next sets of aligners. The process goes very smoothly and predictably.
Invisalign treatment usually costs between $4000 and $6000, depending upon the complexity of the case and estimated treatment time. Flexible payment options are available.
