Invisalign – Orthodontics the Invisible Way

Adults often associate traditional metal braces with kids or teens. If you are an adult and did not have braces as a kid, you can still get straight teeth and a beautiful smile without those metal wires and brackets. Plus, you can now get straight teeth in about a fraction of the time as traditional orthodontics!

Invisalign offers a clear yet convenient option of straightening your teeth.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign treatment consists of custom-made clear aligners that fit directly over your teeth, just to the gum line. The aligners are to be worn up to 22 hours a day but should be removed for eating, and for oral hygiene purposes. The series of clear aligners are changed out every couple of weeks or so as each new set gradually aligns your teeth. Most adults can achieve their desired results within about one year or less. Teens can also straighten their teeth with Invisalign, although results may take a little longer.

What’s the cost?

The total cost of Invisalign will vary, depending on the length of treatment and the amount of aligners that will be needed for you. For patients that require a budget friendly option, PGA Smiles offers an interest-free, low payment option through CareCredit. It is an excellent way to improve your smile without breaking the bank!

Experience the difference

Invisalign offers comfort and convenience to patients. Since there are no metal brackets or wires, you do not have to worry about metal poking your gums or cheeks. The plastic aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear. Plus, you can speak clearly while wearing your aligners! Patients also appreciate the convenience of Invisalign since it does not hinder their diet like traditional braces do. With Invisalign, you can still eat what you want without worry!

Is Invisalign right for you?

This is not a one-size-fits-all answer, but we encourage you to set up a consultation with us at PGA Smiles if you are interested in Invisalign. Every patient’s needs are different when it comes to their oral health and desires for a gorgeous smile. While Invisalign may be a good option for some patients, it still may not be right for everybody. During your consultation with us, please discuss your concerns that you have with your smile, and will assess your oral health to determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign.

Invisalign for teens

Many parents ask us if Invisalign is for teens, too. The answer is that many teens, just like adults, can experience the benefits of Invisalign. We will certainly assess your teen’s needs for orthodontic treatment, and determine if Invisalign is right for them. One aspect of Invisalign for teens, as previously mentioned, is that treatment may take a little longer than it does for adults. A consultation should provide you with a more precise timeline of when to expect results from Invisalign.
