Invisalign® in South Philadelphia, PA

Are you embarrassed by your crooked front teeth or an awkward space in your smile? You don’t have to resort to wearing wires and metal brackets to get the smile you’ve always wanted. Today, dentists know how to straighten teeth without the visible hardware. Invisalign® aligners trays offer an alternative that lets you keep your smile renovation a secret.

Invisalign: The Basics of Clear Aligner Treatment

Invisalign aligners are clear plastic trays that fit over your teeth. Invisalign dentists create a series of trays for each patient. After wearing the first set for about two weeks, you’ll get a new set. The process repeats until you reach the final set. Over time, the incremental trays gradually move your teeth into a more desirable position, transforming your smile without the need for metal components. You’ll wear your aligners most of the day, but you’ll remove them for eating and brushing your teeth. Invisalign trays are discreet and unnoticeable, so your orthodontic treatment won’t become a spectacle.

Invisalign Treatment Cost

Invisalign cost is unique for each patient, but getting Invisalign in South Philadelphia is a wise investment in your dental health. Your total Invisalign cost will depend on the amount of orthodontic correction necessary to meet your goals. Severe problems may take longer and cost more to treat. Many people obtain affordable Invisalign with help from Invisalign insurance coverage and our convenient financing options. Call us today for details about how we can help you manage your Invisalign cost.

How Long Does Invisalign Aligner Treatment Take?

Like cost, Invisalign treatment time depends on the amount of correction required and the severity of your orthodontic condition. Our skilled dentists can develop a treatment timeline for you after a thorough evaluation of your dental needs. The average treatment time for adults is about one year. Serious orthodontic problems can take up to two years to resolve. Once your treatment is finished, you’ll wear Invisalign retainers to keep your teeth in place permanently.

Who Can Perform Invisalign Dentistry?

An orthodontist or dentist who completes special Invisalign system training can provide the aligner tray treatment for patients. The best Invisalign dentist is one who has both knowledge and clinical experience; this ensures that the treatment provided produces the best possible results in the shortest period of time. Our dentists have the skills, education, and experience to transform your smile.

Invisalign vs Braces: How to Pick a Winner

Many patients want to know if Invisalign is just as effective as braces. In most cases, the answer is yes. If your dentist tells you that you’re a candidate for both, the Invisalign vs braces battle is an easy one. Invisalign not only provides a way to keep your treatment under the radar, but it also helps you protect your dental health by making oral hygiene easier. Because you don’t wear your trays while you’re brushing and flossing, you can reach all of your tooth surfaces. Improved oral hygiene decreases your risk of future gum disease and tooth decay.

Even More Benefits of Invisalign

Many aligner patients feel that Invisalign benefits leave the benefits of braces in the dust. Here are a few more Invisalign perks that our patients love:

  • Fewer and easier office visits
  • Unrestricted diet
  • No injuries or soreness from metal wires
  • Improved self-confidence
  • No embarrassing, visible metal components

Who Can Get Invisalign?

Unfortunately, not everyone who wants Invisalign aligners is a good candidate for treatment. Severe orthodontic problems are sometimes better managed with metal braces. Invisalign dentists heartily endorse Invisalign for adults and mature teens, but children have more complicated dental needs, and they also get better results from traditional orthodontic devices. The best way to determine your eligibility for orthodontic treatment with Invisalign is to schedule a visit with one of our Invisalign experts. Call us today to set up an appointment.

Will Invisalign Treatment Alter My Daily Routine?

While wearing your aligners, you can do almost everything you did before you got them; there are only a few exceptions. You will need to wear the trays for about 22 hours out of each day, and you shouldn’t smoke or chew gum during treatment.

Simple Care Tips for Your Invisalign Aligner Trays

Taking care of your Invisalign aligners is easy. Brush and rinse them using warm or cool water only, or use the manufacturer’s cleaning system. Be sure to remove your trays while you are eating. If one of your aligners becomes damaged, warped, or cracked contact your dentist immediately and request a replacement.

Treatment with Invisalign in South Philadelphia can give you a stunning new smile. Let us help you connect with the best Invisalign dentists in the area, so you can get started on your confident new grin.
