Are you unhappy with the alignment of your teeth and do not want to wear metal braces? Invisalign in Alexandria offers you an effective, discreet way to achieve a stunning smile.

What Is Invisalign?

Many of our patients ask how to straighten teeth without wearing metal braces. When you receive Invisalign treatment, you’ll wear a series of customized plastic aligner trays over your teeth. Invisalign can help correct a host of mild to moderate orthodontic issues, including overbites or uneven bottom teeth. Invisalign clear braces are transparent braces, allowing you to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing but you and your dentist.

What is the Cost of Invisalign?

At our practice, we offer affordable Invisalign in Alexandria. Invisalign braces cost an amount that’s similar to metal braces. When you meet with your dentist, he or she will help you determine the total Invisalign cost. The total Invisalign treatment cost will depend on the severity of your orthodontic issues. We also offer several flexible payment plans to help finance the Invisalign cost, which work in conjunction with existing insurance plans. Schedule an appointment with our office today to learn more about our affordable Invisalign options.

How Long Do Invisalign Braces Take?

When you visit our office, one of our experienced dentists will determine how long you’ll receive your Invisalign treatment. This will depend on how much your teeth need to be straightened or re-positioned. In most cases, Invisalign treatment time ranges from 10 months to two years, with the average Invisalign length of treatment time for adults being one year. After your teeth are re-aligned successfully, you may require Invisalign retainers to keep your teeth in place.

Invisalign Dentists

Invisalign clear braces are provided by licensed orthodontists and dentists who have completed the Invisalign dentistry training process. These professionals can help fit your aligner trays and help you achieve a straighter smile. An Invisalign dentist has the knowledge and experience necessary to help you realign your teeth in the least amount of time possible.

Choosing Invisalign vs Braces

When choosing between Invisalign and traditional metal braces, many patients are concerned about appearance. However, selecting a method that will effectively adjust your teeth is just as important. Ask your dentist, “Is Invisalign as effective as braces for my situation?” Patients with moderate orthodontic problems can be good candidates for invisible aligners. Invisalign can treat tooth crowding or spacing problems, as well as crooked teeth. One advantage of using Invisalign vs braces is that invisible aligners give you access to your teeth, allowing you to brush and floss easily. Our qualified Invisalign dentists can help you choose the treatment option that’s right for your situation.

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign provides unique benefits that you won’t find when using traditional braces. Some benefits of correcting your smile with Invisalign include:

  • Being able to eat any food you enjoy
  • Fewer required dental appointments
  • The ability to remove trays at any time
  • No cumbersome metal wires
  • Lighter and more comfortable than metal braces

Invisalign benefits may outweigh the benefits of braces for your dental needs.

Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?

While invisible aligners often are a great solution for adults and teens, children may not be ideal candidates for Invisalign. Children usually face more complicated orthodontic issues because their mouths are still developing. People with intensive orthodontic issues, such as severe spacing or bite problems, also may not be good candidates for Invisalign.

Patients also ask: “Can you get Invisalign on just the top teeth or the bottom teeth?” If you believe you only need aligners on one row of teeth, your dentist will conduct an examination to determine if only correcting one row would misalign your bite. Typically, it is more effective to straighten both rows of teeth.

Does Insurance Cover Invisalign?

Many dental plans offer Invisalign insurance coverage just as they would traditional braces. However, some plans do not fund the entire cost of the treatment. As a leading provider of Invisalign in Alexandria, we offer convenient payment plans that help patients afford the Invisalign cost with insurance or without.

Caring for Teeth After Invisalign

Most dentists will recommend wearing Invisalign retainers following your Invisalign treatments to ensure that the teeth stay properly aligned. Scheduling regular dental appointments at our office also is key to maintaining the health of your smile.
