Invisalign® allows you to feel that way throughout the entire treatment process. Even though the results would be the same with either process, you’re just not comfortable with the thought of looking like you’re back in junior high! Adults need a subtle remedy and Invisalign® aligners provide the best of both worlds – virtually invisible when you’re wearing them and removable when you need them to be. For these reasons, Invisalign® could be the perfect solution for you! As you learn more about our treatment process, you’ll discover that Invisalign® has the flexibility and convenience to fit just about every aspect of your life.

Often adults feel that teeth-straightening is too much trouble, too embarrassing, or too disruptive. While doing nothing may seem to be the easy choice, making the decision to get Invisalign® treatment could benefit you in many ways:

  • Straight teeth and a beautiful smile in a reasonable amount of time
  • No feelings of self-consciousness during treatment with the nearly invisible aligners
  • Minimal impact on your busy schedule

While many adults look at straightening their teeth for cosmetic reasons, it’s important to know that straighter teeth and a proper bite can be beneficial to your overall periodontal health. Whether you choose Invisalign® or another form of treatment, we recommend you read our section on health benefits. You’ll realize that a perfect smile extends far beyond good looks.

Investing in yourself, particularly where your health is concerned, is an important proposition. However, if you’re like most of us, you’re already balancing a number of financial obligations in your life. There are many ways to make the cost of Invisalign® more affordable through insurance, flexible spending accounts, Care Credit, and in house payment plans that we offer at our office.

Frequently Asked Questions

What questions should I ask my dentist about Invisalign?

Make sure you ask your orthodontist about your eligibility. Invisalign can fix most cases of orthodontic problems, but you should still make sure with your orthodontist. Also, you should ask about your periodontal health to ensure everything is fine before you start treatment. Getting Invisalign as an adult means taking a few additional things into consideration.

Is it worth getting Invisalign as an adult?

Absolutely yes. Adults who wear Invisalign can enjoy all the added benefits of clear removable aligner trays. You can take them off whenever you need to, which makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene, almost no one will see them, and results come in faster.

Does Invisalign work on adult teeth?

Yes. Your orthodontist will create a digital model of your teeth to customize your clear aligner trays. Following your initial consultation, you will receive custom-made trays that fit your adult teeth perfectly and realign them safely.

Does Invisalign fix teeth permanently?

All orthodontic treatment requires patients to wear retainers afterward to ensure teeth don’t move again into an unwanted position. Teeth move naturally as we age, so even if your Invisalign treatment realigns your teeth and jaws, you’ll need a retainer to avoid losing those results.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

Invisalign can achieve results much faster than braces, and some patients report noticeable changes as soon as 6 months into their treatment. Completing your orthodontic treatment may take as long as 18 months, but it will all depend on each patient’s circumstances.

How is Invisalign treatment different than other teeth straightening options?

Unlike braces, Invisalign for adults doesn’t rely on highly noticeable appliances and metal fixed stainless steel parts. These BPA-free plastic trays are removable and almost invisible to the naked eye, making them ideal for your busy schedule.

Is Invisalign treatment painful?

No. You shouldn’t feel any pain when you wear Invisalign; however, you should expect some level of discomfort and understand that your teeth feeling loose will be a natural part of the process. Please consult with a specialist if you feel pain for too long.

Do you have to get the bumps on your teeth for Invisalign?

Please make sure to consult with your orthodontist to verify if you’ll require additional attachments to ensure your treatment’s efficiency.
