The Invisalign braces system works by using a series of clear aligners (or appliances), to be changed every two weeks or so, and each successive appliance is incrementally different to account for how much your teeth have moved already and to keep that movement on course. You'll see results quickly and the company offers an app to help you track your progress. The appliances can be removed for eating and cleaning and other short duration activities such as contact sports. Bear in mind though that you'll need to wear your appliances at all times when not doing these things in order for them to be effective.
Although they can be used for complex corrections we usually use the Invisalign system for more minor and moderate problems and they are very effective in this kind of treatment, providing the patient closely follows the treatment plan. If you have a more complex issue however, and feel strongly that Invisalign is the treatment for you, then you can discuss this with your specialist orthodontist at your first visit with us.
If visibility is your key concern, then you may also want to consider fixed lingual braces, which are completely hidden and offer predictable results when treating complex corrections.
How much are Invisalign braces’ is a common question and we appreciate that treatment cost is a big part of your decision-making process. To that end our specialist and team will always provide clear costs and flexible finance options to suit your lifestyle and budget.
In most cases, Invisalign treatment is comparable to the cost of traditional braces. Every treatment is judged on an individual basis and is based on your specific needs. Factors taken into consideration are treatment goals, the complexity difficulty of your case, how long you are in treatment and additional factors determined by your orthodontist.
