Invisalign Treatment for Crooked Teeth in Davis
Invisalign Treatment for Crooked Teeth
Crooked teeth can ruin the beauty of your smile. If you have crooked
teeth, don’t worry, an Invisalign dentist can help you straighten
crooked teeth using Invisalign Braces.
Invisalign can treat crooked teeth in children and adults. The beauty
of using Invisalign is that they are invisible aligners and aren’t
easily noticed even at a close range.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign braces are clear aligners that are custom fit for a dental
patient with misaligned or crooked teeth. A patient usually wears these
aligners for at least 22 hours a day and they slowly align the teeth
back in position within a period of 6 months for children and 1 year for
adults depending on the condition of the teeth.
How Invisalign for Crooked Teeth Works
Invisalign aligners are designed to straighten teeth in a comfortable
and discreet manner, unlike traditional metal braces.
The pair of aligners are custom-made for a patient to ensure a
perfect fit. The aligners are removable and allow the patient to take
them out for meals, brushing, and flossing.
They are very strong and versatile and capable of aligning crooked
teeth slowly over a period of time.
The patient changes into a new set of aligners every 2 weeks.
Advantages of Invisalign for Crooked Teeth
Confidence: Invisalign gives you confidence
even as you continue with treatment. Invisalign aligners are invisible
hence you don’t have to feel self-conscious.
Insurance: Most insurance companies cover
Invisalign aligners under orthodontic dental treatments. While the
treatment can last more than a year, it won’t hurt your wallet.
Cheaper than metal braces: If your
insurance doesn’t cover dental work, don’t worry. At the very most
Invisalign will cost the same as metal braces, but generally, Invisalign
is much cheaper if your teeth are not severely crooked.
The cost of Invisalign treatment is dependent on the condition of
your teeth and the estimated timeframe of your recovery. Your dentist
will give you a quote before treatment begins. To find out if you are a
