More than 4 million patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign. The number of Invisalign smiles grows daily.
The price varies dependend on severity of case. Your practitioner will inform you about the costs and payment options on your free consultation appointment.
Through the use of our patented thermoplastic design, Invisalign aligners move your teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force. The main difference is that Invisalign not only controls the force, but also the timing of the force application. During each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move. These movements are determined by your doctor as he or she maps out your unique Invisalign treatment plan.
Similar to other orthodontic treatments, Invisalign aligners may temporarily affect the speech of some people, and you may have a slight lisp for a day or two. However, as your tongue gets used to having aligners in your mouth, any lisp caused by the aligners should disappear.
It's a more comfortable and less intrusive way of straightening teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces with brackets and wires, Invisalign is very discreet and virtually invisible. This gives patients the confidence to smile and socialise as normal without feeling self-conscious. You can also take the aligners out for easy cleaning, brushing and flossing. The aligners shouldn't be worn for eating, so there’s no need to avoid certain foods. Traditional braces also require constant visits to the dentist for tightening. In contrast, Invisalign works effectively to keep the right amount of pressure on the teeth without the need for tightening. This means you won’t have to visit your dentist quite so often.
