Invisalign is one of the best ways to straighten your teeth and best of all you don't need braces!
We have treated thousands of Invisalign and braces patients and we always go over the pros and cons of each treatment.
Let's talk about why you should choose Invisalign vs another product.
Reduced Risk: With Invisalign there may be less risk of root resorption and oral hygiene issues during orthodontic treatment.
Time-Saving: You will have less visits at our office as we typically give our patients 10 trays or more (which is 10 weeks or more!)
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 which can protect your teeth.
The price of Invisalign falls somewhere between $2500 and $6500, depending on the complexity and length of your case.
The finances will also depend on your orthodontic insurance coverage which varies greatly person to person.
If you have orthodontic coverage from your insurance this can be applied to Invisalign. Patients often didn't know their orthodontic coverage can be applied to braces or Invisalign.
Some insurance plans have a $1,000-$3500 lifetime maximum for Invisalign coverage, which is usually about half to two-thirds of your total treatment cost.
Our team in Frisco will help you with all of your clear aligner finances. Our goal is to never make finances be the obstacle to the smile you deserve.
We also offer zero interest monthly payments and there is no credit check required!
Comfort: Unlike traditional braces and other aligners, Invisalign is very comfortable. After the first few sets of trays you barely notice you're wearing them.
Esthetics: Invisalign is the most esthetic way to move your teeth into a proper bite.
Speed: Invisalign treatment may be shorter than traditional braces in some easier cases.
Results: Invisalign can move teeth in a more controlled manner that braces cannot.
Whether you have Aetna, Cigna, BlueCross BlueShield of any other type of PPO dental insurance we are here to maximize your benefits.
We will guide you through your Invisalign treatment plan to ensure you get the most out of your dental insurance while you have to pay the least.
Most patients do not realize how good their orthodontic benefits are. We will guide you through any waiting periods, issues with orthodontic coverage etc.
Fortunately, Invisalign is typically less uncomfortable than braces. You may experience some discomfort as your teeth are shifting into proper position.
The soreness typically last for a day or two when you move to the next clear aligner tray. You won't need any other pain medication other than Tylenol or Advil.
With Invisalign your gums and teeth will be cleaner than traditional braces because you can remove the aligners to brush and floss.
Your appointment to get Invisalign will start with a set of Xrays so your orthodontist can determine what type of treatment is best for you.
We will then start with an iTero digital scan of your mouth to get a virtual 3D model of your teeth.
Once you and your orthodontist have approved the model, the aligners are fabricated and sent to our office in Frisco. Your orthodontist will then bring you in to get you started treatment.
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends a orthodontic checkup at 7 years old. At this age we are monitoring for signs of severe eruption or bite issues.
That being said, most patients do not typically start Invisalign until all of their permanent teeth erupt which is roughly at the age of 12 or 13.
Clear aligner treatment takes a lot of effort for the patient. This is why we consult with the patient and, if applicable, the parents to ensure you are ready for your Invisalign journey.
