Invisalign® Treatment in Emporia, KS
Restore Your Smile with Invisalign® Aligners
Did you know that of the 4 million people in the United States who wear braces, 25% are adults? While wearing braces in your early childhood may not be so bothersome, unsightly wires and metal brackets can take a hit to your self-esteem as you age.
Fortunately, clear solutions like aligners can help restore your smile while keeping your confidence intact. Emporia Family Dental Care in Emporia, KS can provide the custom-made Invisalign aligners you need if you want an affordable and effective solution for crooked teeth.
What is Invisalign® Treatment?
Invisalign clear aligners are an orthodontic treatment used to restore misaligned teeth. These plastic aligners progressively shift your teeth towards the desired position. Unlike conventional braces, aligners are easily removable, although they should be worn by patients at least 20 hours a day.
Every one to two weeks, patients swap out their aligners for a tighter one. In as little as six months, Invisalign patients can experience significantly improved oral health and straighter teeth.
Invisalign treatments can address a few common dental concerns, such as:
- Gaps: Abnormal growth in the jawbone can cause gaps between your teeth that put you at risk of gum disease. They can also make it more challenging to eat and speak.
- Overbite or underbite: Both overbites and underbites can prevent the normal function of the mouth. They can also cause severe discomfort and irritation.
- Overcrowding: When there is not enough room in the jaw, overcrowding occurs, causing pain and discomfort. Overcrowding also makes it difficult to properly clean your teeth.
Why Choose Invisalign® Aligners Over Traditional Braces
Aligners have many advantages over traditional metal braces. If you’re considering Invisalign treatment, here are a few reasons you should try it.
Completely Invisible Appearance
Many prefer Invisalign aligners as an alternative to traditional braces because of their nearly invisible look. If you don’t like unsightly metal wires, aligners can align your smile without compromising your appearance.
Not only do aligners appear more attractive, but it is also more comfortable to wear. Made with smooth plastic, aligners do not have any metal parts that could cause bleeding or discomfort in the mouth.
Shorter Wear Time
While traditional treatment can take up to five years to straighten teeth, Invisalign aligners can deliver results in as quickly as six months. Plus, a person with aligners doesn’t need as many maintenance checks with their dentist versus traditional braces.
Taking good care of your Invisalign aligners can help ensure your treatment is short and successful. Make sure that you wash your aligners with an appropriate cleaning solution and store your aligners properly.
No Food Restrictions
With Invisalign treatment, there’s no need to worry about food particles getting stuck between any wires. Removable aligners make it easy to eat whatever you want without compromising your treatment plan.
Ultimately, the cost of Invisalign aligners will depend on your specific needs. However, most Invisalign treatment costs are significantly less than traditional bracket aligners. Emporia Family Dental Care in Emporia, KS will provide an approximate estimate during your consultation.
Improved Dental Hygiene
Aligners help improve crowding and gaps, which benefits your overall dental health. Plus, eating, flossing, and brushing your teeth are easier to achieve with these detachable aligners.
How Much Does Invisalign® Aligners Cost?
Your aligners cost will vary according to the severity of health conditions (such as gum disease or tooth decay), how much work is required, treatment time, and how often you need to see the dentist for maintenance.
At Emporia Family Dental Care, you can reduce the overall cost of Invisalign treatment through payment options such as alternative payment plans or dental insurance.
Most orthodontics treatments will also require retainers after using aligners to keep your smile in perfect shape. If you are diligent with your retainers after orthodontics treatment, you typically don’t have to get Invisalign treatment again.
