Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign Treatment

Posted by Kennedy Heights Dental Centre on Sep 27 2022, 10:45 PM

Invisalign treatment involves a series of removable plastic aligners that straighten a patient's teeth over time. The aligners are transparent and fit snugly over the teeth, making them almost invisible when worn. Patients can remove them to eat, drink, brush, and floss, making Invisalign a convenient orthodontic treatment option for many patients. If you are planning to get Invisalign, read on to learn more about them. 

Is Invisalign right for me?

Invisalign treatment is an excellent option for adults and teens who want to improve their smile's appearance. The aligners are discreet and removable and can be removed for eating and oral hygiene. Plus, Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic material, so most people won't even notice you're wearing them.

Invisalign aligners are a great option for many patients, but they may not be the best choice for everyone. The best way to find out if Invisalign is right for you is to schedule a consultation with your dentist. They will examine your teeth, discuss your treatment goals, and evaluate your candidacy for Invisalign treatment. Kennedy Heights Dental Centre offers Invisalign treatments to patients from Surrey VW3, V4N, V4P, Langley V3A, V2Y 1A2, and New Westminster V3L, V3K 0M4, and surrounding regions.

Explain the Invisalign treatment.

Once your doctor decides you are a candidate for Invisalign treatment, a series of custom-made aligners are created for you. Wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, taking them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to their final positions. You will visit us about once every six weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months, and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

What are Invisalign's benefits?

Your Invisalign treatment's benefits will include:

  • A comfortable fit
  • Virtually invisible when worn
  • A shorter treatment time than traditional braces
  • Fewer dental visits
  • No food restrictions
  • Fewer emergency visits
  • Lower risk of tooth decay and gum disease
  • A more beautiful smile
  • An improved bite

How long does Invisalign take to straighten teeth?

Typically, Invisalign treatment takes around 6 - 18 months to complete. Each patient's timeline will be unique to his or her severity of malocclusion, needs, and lifestyle.

Is Invisalign painful?

Invisalign treatment is often much more comfortable than patients expect. The aligners are made out of smooth plastic that is designed to fit smoothly against the teeth. There is no metal or wires involved in the Invisalign system, so sensitive patients don't have to worry about uncomfortable or painful treatment.

How much does Invisalign cost?

Invisalign pricing varies from provider to provider, and the total cost of your treatment depends on the length and complexity of your treatment plan, as well as the cost charged by your dentist. To learn more about the cost of Invisalign aligners, schedule a visit with your Invisalign dentist at Kennedy Heights Dental Centre.
