What is Invisalign Treatment?

When you visit Glastonbury Dental Associates to learn more about Invisalign clear braces, you’ll find out that the process utilizes series of aligners that are custom-formed to your mouth. Each set places a gentle amount of pressure on your teeth to shift them into a straighter position and correct crowding and misalignment. Every two weeks, you’ll pick up your next series of trays from us. They’re made from a smooth and clear FDA-approved plastic that’s similar to a retainer. After wearing them for 22 hours each day for the entirety of your treatment time, you’ll have a beautiful improved grin.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers a variety of benefits that no other orthodontic treatment can. We utilize the latest advancements and technology in the dental field to craft an individualized plan for each of our patients’ smiles. Some benefits patients can enjoy from the treatment include:

  • Easily maintain your oral hygiene without having to maneuver around brackets and wires when you brush and floss. All you need to do is take out your aligners beforehand.
  • Invisalign is a safe orthodontic treatment for teenagers and adults.
  • The average Invisalign treatment time is anywhere between eight and 14 months, which is significantly shorter than traditional braces.
  • Shorter and easier follow-up appointment where you won’t have to worry about leaving in discomfort.
  • Enjoy all the foods that you normally would, just be sure to take out your trays first.

How Do I Get My Invisalign Aligners?

The first step to getting your Invisalign aligners is to schedule an appointment at Glastonbury Dental Associates. We’ll begin by examining your mouth and oral health to see if you’re a good candidate. For more severe problems, traditional metal braces may be best. After taking images of your mouth and dental impressions, we’ll create a custom treatment plan.

Usually, we’ll receive your aligners from a special Invisalign laboratory about 4 weeks later. Every two weeks, you’ll visit us to collect the next series in your treatment and we’ll make sure that your teeth and gums are in great shape. We’ll continue this process until you don’t have any more sets of trays left in your treatment. After that, we’ll instruct you to wear a retainer to keep your teeth from shifting back into their previous positions.

How Much Does Treatment Cost?

Like most orthodontic treatments, the cost varies drastically from patient to patient. This can be based on a variety of factors including treatment time, the severity of your issues, and whether your insurance company contributes to the cost. Typically, dental benefits don’t cover cosmetic procedures, but we find that this is beginning to change, so be sure to give them a call and double-check.

We also value transparency and believe that every patient should be able to seek the treatment that they believe is best for their oral and overall health, which is why we offer third-party financing options like CareCredit. Be sure to contact us today to learn how we can help you get the straightened smile you’ve been wanting.
