Invisalign® in Sarasota, FL
If you’re unhappy about the alignment of your teeth, there are other options available beyond traditional metal braces. Our experienced dentists can help you straighten your smile discreetly with Invisalign® in Sarasota.
How Does the Invisalign Process Work?
Invisalign treatment is designed to straighten your teeth through the use of a series of clear, custom-made aligner trays that are worn over your teeth. The aligner trays align your teeth through gentle pressure. As your teeth gradually straighten, you’ll receive a new set of aligner trays every two weeks.
Average Invisalign Cost
The average Invisalign cost is in a similar range as traditional metal braces. During your appointment, our experienced dentists can provide information about your expected costs, which can vary depending on how long you require treatment and how extensive your alignment issues are. Flexible financing and affordable payment plans may also be available. Contact our office for more information.
What’s the Average Treatment Time for Invisalign?
Treatment time is based on the amount of straightening your teeth require, but the average Invisalign treatment time ranges from 12-18 months for adults. Treatment time for teens varies. We recommend wearing Invisalign retainers to maintain your results after completing treatment.
Are Invisalign Dentists Specially Trained?
A licensed orthodontist or general dentist who has received specialized training in the Invisalign aligner tray system can provide treatment. These experienced Invisalign dentists have the training and experience required to help you achieve a straighter smile.
Differences Between Invisalign vs Braces
One of the main benefits of Invisalign is that the trays are nearly invisible. When treating mild-to-moderate orthodontic problems, Invisalign and traditional braces are effective treatment options. For more complex cases or when an extensive correction is needed, traditional braces are the most ideal treatment. Our dentists can help you make a decision between Invisalign vs braces. Call our office today to make an appointment.
Are There Advantages of Invisalign?
You might be surprised to learn that the benefits of Invisalign outweigh the benefits of traditional metal braces. Consider the following benefits:
- There are no metal wires or brackets to irritate your mouth and gums.
- Enjoy your favorite food and drinks with no restrictions.
- Easier to care for compared to traditional braces.
- You can smile confidently without noticeable metal wires.
- You’ll only need to visit our dental office every four to six weeks.
- The aligner trays can be removed at any time.
Is Invisalign Right for Me?
Many patients have straightened their teeth with Invisalign; however, the clear aligner trays are not for everyone. Patients with severe spacing, crowding, or bite problems may not be good candidates for Invisalign. In addition, children aren’t ideal candidates for Invisalign since their mouths are still developing. Call our office today and let our experienced Invisalign dentists help you determine if you can benefit from Invisalign.
How Expensive Is Invisalign with Insurance?
Most insurance plans offer coverage for Invisalign cost just as they would for traditional metal braces. For more information about your Invisalign insurance, contact your insurance provider or our dental office about any questions you have.
Will Invisalign Affect My Daily Life?
When you get Invisalign in Sarasota, you might be surprised at how easily treatment fits into your lifestyle. Since you remove the aligners every time you eat, you don’t have to eliminate any of your favorite food or drinks from your diet. If you smoke or chew tobacco, it may discolor the trays, and chewing gum is also not recommended when you’re wearing the aligners. When you clean the trays, you can use the cleaning system available at our office, or you can brush the aligner trays with toothpaste and rinse them with warm water. We recommend wearing the aligners for 20-22 hours every day.
