Whether you’re an adult or a child, having a beautiful smile can enhance your confidence and boost your self esteem.
Crooked, poorly-aligned teeth often leave people ashamed of their smiles, causing them to avoid public interactions or photo opportunities.
Many dental patients want to straighten their teeth, but avoid taking action because they dread the look or discomfort of traditional metal braces. Thankfully, My Family Dentistry can help you straighten your teeth without braces with Invisalign, a discreet and highly effective alternative to metal braces.
When you choose Invisalign to straighten your teeth without braces, you can expect your treatment to be completed in as little as 9 to 15 months. My Family Dentistry patients are advised to wear their aligners between 20-22 hours a day, except while eating or cleaning their teeth. Since Invisalign is practically invisible, you can discreetly straighten your teeth without drawing any unnecessary attention to your smile during your treatment.
Properly aligned teeth enhance not only the appearance of your smile but also the overall health of your teeth and gums. Misaligned teeth often leads to health problems down the road, especially for those suffering from chronic dental conditions such as teeth grinding (bruxism) or TMJ.
Reduced Discomfort & Complications
Up to 50% of orthodontic patients who choose traditional braces will experience some degree of tooth decay or demineralization due to the increase of plaque and food particle buildup that gathers around the metal brackets used during treatment. Fortunately, with Invisalign, the clear aligners can be removed while eating, brushing, or flossing, so you can care for your teeth as usual without the additional complications that come along with metal braces.
Invisalign is also a less painful alternative to braces, because the aligners put very little pressure on your teeth during the course of your treatment. Since adjustments are made on a frequent basis (around every two weeks) your teeth can be gradually moved into their proper places with a series of aligners that are replaced during each subsequent visit.
The cost of Invisalign varies based on the extent and duration of your treatment. Candidates who are eligible for Invisalign Express 5 or 10 can expect their treatment to range between $2,500-$3,500, which is often substantially lower than the cost of traditional braces. For most patients, Invisalign costs an average of $5,500 from start to finish. We’re happy to work with your dental insurance company, and we also offer CareCredit payment plans.
If you want to revamp your smile without braces, My Family Dentistry will help you achieve your goal. Whether you’re in need of flexible payment options or are interested in learning more about this exciting treatment option, our dedicated staff will gladly provide you with the information you need to make a well informed decision.
