How does Invisalign in Huntsville, AL work?
At King Dental, we offer invisible braces with Invisalign. This innovative orthodontic option uses crystal-clear plastic aligners that are worn over the teeth to move them into proper alignment gently. When the aligners are in place, they are virtually invisible, which means that you can straighten your teeth without anybody even knowing it. With Invisalign treatment, clear plastic aligners apply gentle pressure and gradually move your teeth instead of bulky metal braces.
Because of their secure and snug fit, Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear and hardly noticeable. Better yet, you can take them off for meals and brushing, making it easy for you to enjoy all the foods you love and maintain a healthy home care routine during your treatment.
You must wear your aligners as much as possible to achieve your desired results. Dr. King recommends wearing aligners for at least 22 hours each day. Every two weeks, you'll move to the next set of aligners to keep your treatment plan progressing as planned. Most patients can complete treatment with Invisalign in around 12 to 18 months.
Why is it important to straighten crooked teeth?
We understand that many people think of their crooked or gapped teeth as part of their signature look. We agree that all smiles are beautiful smiles, and we always want you to smile with confidence.
But crooked teeth can actually have a negative impact on your dental health too. If your teeth are too tightly crowded together or overlap each other, it will be almost impossible to clean them properly. Toothbrushes can’t reach into these tight spaces, and flossing may also be a challenge. Unfortunately, bacteria can get into these areas and wreak havoc, increasing your risk of developing gum disease or cavities.
Widely spaced teeth aren’t immune to problems either. It’s easy for bits of food to get trapped in these open spaces, and this can lead to bad breath and tooth decay.
Straightening your teeth not only increases your confidence, but it also protects your oral health.
Do you know the science behind your smile?
While protecting your dental health with a straighter smile is very important, the benefits you get from a beautiful smile also can't be overlooked. Science has shown us that smiling actually releases chemicals into your brain, such as serotonin and dopamine, that make you feel good. And because smiles are contagious, you'll also make other people around you smile, and they will feel good too!
Your confident and beautiful smile also helps you make the right impression when you meet or interact with other people. Those who hide their smiles are more likely to be perceived as unhappy or unapproachable, and living with crooked teeth may have you feeling like there's not much to smile about.
We encourage you to contact our Huntsville dental office today to learn more about how Invisalign can help change your smile and your life!
What are the advantages of choosing invisible braces?
Our patients who have straightened their teeth using Invisalign love how convenient the aligners are when compared to traditional braces. For instance:
- Because the aligners are practically invisible, you’ll be able to meet with clients or speak publicly without the fear of everyone staring at your mouth.
- You remove the aligners to clean them and to brush and floss your teeth, eliminating the hassle and difficulty of having to clean around brackets and wires and reducing the risk of damage to the enamel that traditional braces can cause.
- You also remove the aligners to eat and drink, so your food and beverage choices aren’t limited.
- The smooth plastic doesn’t irritate the inside of your cheeks the way that brackets and wires can (Anyone who has ever worn braces can tell you about the discomfort of a broken wire!).
- Your Huntsville dentist will give you your series of aligners and instructions on when to change them, which you can easily do at home. This convenience reduces the amount of time you’ll have to spend in the dentist’s chair throughout your treatment.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is an appropriate treatment option if you have mild to moderate tooth misalignment that results in crowding, twisted or overlapping teeth, or wide spaces between your teeth. Adults who have experienced a relapse from the orthodontic treatment they've had in the past are also ideal candidates for treatment with Invisalign.
If you have more severe tooth misalignment or your bite needs to be corrected, we can discuss your needs and see if you would benefit from Invisalign or if a traditional orthodontic treatment option is a better choice.
What is the cost of Invisalign?
Because each patient's treatment needs are unique, the cost of Invisalign can vary. Dr. King will determine the price of your invisible braces based on the complexity of your case and the time it requires to complete your treatment. Your cost will include all of your aligners as well as office visits with Dr. King to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned.
Many dental insurance plans include an orthodontic benefit that you can apply to treatment with Invisalign, and this helps defray the cost of treatment. King Dental also works with third-party financing companies like CareCredit and Lending Club that can help break the cost of orthodontic treatment into affordable monthly payments.
If you are considering treatment with Invisalign, our friendly and knowledgeable team would love to help you determine how you can fit your treatment comfortably into your budget.
How can I get started?
Are you ready to take the next step toward a straighter and healthier smile? The first thing to do is to schedule an Invisalign evaluation with Dr. King. Using x-rays, photographs, and a thorough examination of your teeth, he will determine if Invisalign will help you achieve your best smile.
If it turns out that Invisalign is not the right treatment for your needs, Dr. King can discuss other alternatives with you.
If you do move forward with invisible braces, he will use 3-D imaging to create your treatment plan with Invisalign and show you how your completed smile will look.
