Will Invisalign Work for Me? Ask Our Crestmead Dental Professionals

Invisalign aligners, known for their clear, plastic design, offer an aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional braces with metal brackets and wires. But the question remains, are they right for you?

  • Suitability Assessment: Not everyone is an ideal candidate for Invisalign. We assess factors like the severity of misalignment, oral health status, and patient age to determine if Invisalign is the best solution for you.
  • Advantages Over Traditional Braces: Our team will highlight how Invisalign, free from metal brackets and wires, offers a more comfortable and less noticeable orthodontic treatment compared to traditional metal braces.
  • Addressing Complex Cases: While Invisalign is effective for many orthodontic issues, some complex cases might require more traditional methods. We’ll be transparent about what Invisalign can and cannot achieve for you.
  • Patient Lifestyle Considerations: We’ll discuss how Invisalign aligners can seamlessly fit into your daily life, considering factors like your work environment and social preferences.
  • Long-Term Oral Health Benefits: Beyond just aligning your teeth, we’ll explain how Invisalign treatment contributes to overall oral health improvement, making it easier to brush and floss effectively.

Our Crestmead Dental team will help you understand how Invisalign can work for your specific case. Whether it’s overcrowding, gaps, or misalignment, Invisalign aligners are designed to gradually move your teeth into the desired position. However, it’s essential to note that some complex orthodontic cases might require alternative treatments.

Invisalign Costs and Financing Options

We understand that the cost of orthodontic treatment is a significant consideration.

  2. Customized Payment Plans: Understanding that financial considerations play a significant role, we offer tailored payment plans to suit different budgets, ensuring that financial constraints don’t hinder your journey to a straighter smile.

  4. Special Offers and Discounts: We occasionally run promotions for Invisalign treatments. Be sure to ask about any current offers that could make your treatment more affordable.
  5. Long-Term Investment in Your Smile: We emphasize the value of Invisalign as a long-term investment in your oral health and confidence, going beyond the initial cost to consider the lasting benefits of a beautiful smile.

Caring for Your Invisalign Aligners

Maintaining your Invisalign aligners is crucial for their effectiveness and your orally hygienic lifestyle.

  • Regular Cleaning Routine: We’ll guide you on how to clean your Invisalign aligners effectively. It’s crucial to rinse them every night and brush them gently to keep them clear and hygienic, ensuring they remain virtually invisible.
  • Proper Storage Practices: When not in use, such as during meals, it’s important to store your aligners in the case provided. This prevents damage and maintains hygiene, safeguarding your investment in your smile.
  • Maintaining Oral Hygiene: With Invisalign, maintaining a rigorous oral hygiene routine is essential. We recommend brushing and flossing after every meal before reinserting your aligners to prevent trapping food particles and bacteria.
  • Avoiding Harmful Habits: Our team advises against habits like smoking or drinking colored beverages with aligners in, as these can stain the plastic and compromise the discreet nature of your treatment.
  • Aligner Wear and Care Schedule: We will provide a clear schedule for wearing and changing your aligners. Consistently wearing them for the recommended 20-22 hours a day is key to ensuring your teeth move into place as planned.
