Do you often find yourself dreaming about correcting the gaps and misaligned teeth in your smile at last? Many adults often feel like they’ve missed their chance to undergo orthodontic treatment with traditional braces. After all, metal brackets and wires are better-suited to children in middle school, not polished professionals who need to maintain a natural, confident appearance.
Just like the name "Invisalign" implies, you can look forward to enjoying a subtle and convenient treatment process that doesn’t take away from your self-esteem and enthusiasm in everyday life. We also offer Propel Orthodontics, a way to help decrease your treatment time and ensure more pleasing results. To schedule a consultation and learn whether or not this service is right for your unique smile, don’t hesitate to contact your cosmetic dentist in Concord today.
Invisalign treatment doesn’t use any of the typical components of traditional metal braces. Instead, our team will capture detailed impressions of your smile and then send them to the Invisalign laboratory, where they’ll create a customized set of clear, high-quality plastic aligners that is sent back to our Concord office in turn. Each aligner is designed to represent a different stage of your teeth as they’re gradually shifted towards their ideal positions. The patients’ job is simple – you’ll wear each aligner for a certain period of time (usually around two weeks) before switching to the next aligner in the set.
Patients can also expect to attend regular progress appointments every six weeks or so when using Invisalign in Concord. These visits will be short, and they’ll allow our capable dentists to assess your smile’s changes, provide you with your next set of aligners, and ensure that your care is progressing smoothly.
Invisalignt treatment has been clinically proven to be effective in treating a wide variety of mild and complex orthodontic concerns, such as the following:
As a result, you can expect your smile to look straighter and more uniform than ever before! In addition to the obvious aesthetic benefits, there are also valuable health-related advantages. For instance, straighter teeth are easier to keep clean and safe from decay with consistent brushing and flossing. Orthodontic treatment like Invisalign also works wonders in correcting discomfort or strain caused by a misaligned bite. Your cosmetic dentist in Concord looks forward to helping you smile brighter and feel better!
The length of every patient’s case is different and will depend on the severity of your orthodontic concerns. Our doctors can give you a more confident estimate after your consultation, but most adults can expect to use Invisalign aligners for about 12 months on average as long as they wear them consistently and for 22 hours or more each day. This is a definite improvement over traditional braces, which usually require multiple years at a time to be completely effective.
Your cosmetic dentist is the best person to help you determine whether you are a candidate for Invisalign. While this treatment is right for many people, you may want to look into other orthodontic treatment options if:
The cost of Invisalign depends on how many aligners a person needs and if they require any extra attachments to make their treatment effective. In general, though, the total price of Invisalign is in the same ballpark as traditional braces. Oftentimes, insurance companies are even willing to cover part of the cost. We’re also happy to help you apply for low-interest financing so you can break up your bill into manageable monthly chunks. When you come in for your consultation, we’ll look at some specific numbers with you so you can decide whether there is room in your budget for Invisalign.
