Invisalign is one of the most powerful and popular dental advancements today.
But there are a few things you must know before getting Invisalign.
Let's discuss why you should choose Invisalign if you live in Allen.
Reduced Risk: With Invisalign, there is less risk of shrinking tooth roots from the excessive forces than conventional braces may impose as the movements are very controlled.
Time-Saving: Typically your visits are 10 weeks apart which means less time spent at the dental office.
Better Oral Hygiene: Unlike conventional braces, which are hard to clean around, you remove your aligners to brush and floss.
Custom trays and aligners for life: Your Invisalign aligners double as whitening trays and a nightguard during and after treatment.
The price of Invisalign falls somewhere between $2500 and $6500, depending on the complexity and length of your case.
It will also vary depending on the length of treatment and how much your insurance covers.
The orthodontic coverage for your insurance will cover Invisalign. And although these plans will not cover the full treatment, they will definitely help a lot.
Some insurance plans have a $2,000 to $3500 lifetime maximum for orthodontic coverage. This amount can be applied to your Invisalign treatment!
Having great Insurance coverage can dramatically lower your monthly payments.
Your treatment may be even more affordable if you only need minor teeth movement. If you only need minor movement you may qualify for Invisalign express which is a more affordable version of Invisalign.
Keep in mind Invisalign will always be more expensive than braces.
Esthetics: You get clear, almost invisible aligners.
Speed: Invisalign cases may be faster than traditional braces if the movement needed is very little.
Comfort: Unlike conventional braces, there are no wires or sharp edges and patients tend to feel very comfortable in Invisalign.
Results: Invisalign is good at fine or minute movement of teeth as it is computer generated.

Your appointment to get Invisalign will start with impressions or digital scans of your teeth, which are sent to Invisalign. Invisalign will then make a 3D model of your teeth before and after the proposed treatment. The 3D models that the orthodontists sees is called a "clincheck".
Once you and your orthodontist have approved the model, the aligners are fabricated and sent to your dentist’s office. Your orthodontist will then bring you in to get you started treatment.
This whole process takes roughly 4-6 weeks.
Most cases are between 8-24 months with switching out the aligners every week.
The length of your treatment will be based on how complex your case is. The more complex your case is, the more aligners and time it will take.
The average case takes a little over a year. The ClinCheck will show your orthodontist how long your treatment will be based on how many aligners you will need.
Most of the time you will need multiple sets of Invisalign trays. We tell patients that even though their first set will have fewer trays than we anticipated that is likely not the end of their Invisalign journey. We typically also take a refinement impression after the first set of trays.
Fortunately, Invisalign is typically less painful than braces. You may experience some pain and discomfort with Invisalign, but it’s more soreness than the pain of sharp brackets that come with traditional braces.
Invisalign also causes less gum inflammation and discomfort because you can have impeccable oral hygiene when using Invisalign as you remove the trays to brush and floss. Also, Invisalign doesn’t cause root resorption (part of the tooth root shrinks), which is sometimes seen with braces, which can cause tooth loss.
