Why Should I Get Invisalign As An Adult?

Getting Invisalign as an adult is always a good investment to make in your oral health, simply put, because the types of issues that Invisalign is designed to correct can manifest themselves at literally any age.

Even if you grew up with a totally perfect smile with no dental-related issues to speak of, that wouldn’t necessarily be true for the rest of your life. Teeth are constantly shifting unless held in place, and as we get older certain orthodontic problems can get worse, such as crowding, spacing, overbites, and more. Invisalign can move teeth effectively at all ages, and Dr. Wilson has even treated patients in their 80’s.

How Will You Start My Treatment Plan?

Your treatment plan begins with an iTero digital scan of your teeth. This scan is used to create a series of clear aligners to straighten your teeth. Dr. Wilson can use the scan to show you a simulation of how your teeth will look when you’re done with treatment. At that point, you’ll be able to act in complete confidence, knowing that all of your needs will be taken care of.

How Long Will My Treatment Plan Last?

No two patients are created equally. Some types of orthodontic problems simply take a longer time to correct than others, and obviously, that will require you to be in Invisalign clear plastic aligners for a longer period of time.

Dr. Wilson will present a customized treatment plan for your specific needs and can tell you about how long your treatment will last.

How Much Will My Invisalign Clear Aligners Cost?

Every patient is different and it is important to create a plan that is just right for you. The cost of your treatment will depend on this custom treatment plan and will vary depending on the length of time and complexity. We can tell you the exact amount once we have seen you for your initial exam and consultation. We offer an array of payment options, family and professional discounts, and flexible financing. It is our goal to remove any and all barriers so you can achieve a beautiful healthy smile.

Is It Possible To Switch From Braces To Invisalign?

Absolutely! If you’re unhappy with the results you are getting, or with the experience of having braces, Dr. Wilson can discuss an option for you to switch to Invisalign.

How Do I Clean My Aligners?

Cleaning your aligners is easy, and soon becomes part of your daily routine. Brush your aligners thoroughly with clean, cool water whenever you remove them to brush your teeth. You can also use Invisalign Cleaning Crystals (available at https://www.invisalignaccessories.com/) to soak and freshen your aligners once a week or so.

Is Invisalign Uncomfortable?

Because the iTero Digital Scans are used to create your Invisalign clear plastic aligners are so precise, most people do not find them to be uncomfortable in any way, shape, or form. In fact, they’re far more comfortable than traditional metal braces because you don’t have a mouth filled with metal brackets and wires to get used to. For the first few days, there may be somewhat of an adjustment period while you get used to your aligners, but that will soon go away.

The Major Benefits Of Invisalign

Invisalign has many benefits, including comfort, with no poky wires or metal parts rubbing against your cheeks. They are virtually invisible, so you can go about your daily life without drawing attention to your teeth. You also brush and floss like normal, and you can eat what you want.

Most patients also like the fact that it’s easy to remove your Invisalign clear plastic aligners for special events like family photos, meaning that the fact that you’re wearing them won’t be immortalized for all time.
