For many patients, Invisalign is an effective way to straighten teeth. In the past, adults sometimes avoided orthodontics due the appearance of metal braces, and the expense of treatment. Modern alternatives to conventional orthodontia are not visible, and the cost of Invisalign need not be prohibitive. Maine Center for Cosmetic Dentistry utilizes advanced techniques, and offers flexible payment options.
Instead of metal wires and brackets, Invisalign repositions teeth with a series of lightweight, clear plastic dental appliances. The number of trays worn and the time it takes to straighten teeth depends on your unique needs. Many patients complete treatment in 12 months, which contains costs associated with materials and follow-up appointments.
Unlike fixed braces, you can remove Invisalign aligners for cleaning and eating. Each aligner corresponds with a step in your personalized treatment plan. Every two weeks, when you swap the current tray for the next in the series, you are one step closer to having the smile you’ve always wanted. With conventional braces, you must visit the dentist so wires and brackets can be adjusted, for treatment to progress. With Invisalign, Dr. Khan only needs to assess that straightening is going as planned, every four to six weeks.
Invisalign’s benefits represent the ways this modern approach is a good value. Crooked teeth may make brushing and flossing difficult, and cleaning around braces can be challenging. Oral hygiene is a basic foundation of good gum and teeth health. These complications are eliminated with Invisalign, because appliances are removed for easy brushing and flossing.
