We Are Open – Safety is Our Top Priority!
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
You don’t have to settle for traditional metal braces to correct your crooked or misaligned teeth. Our dentists can correct your bite issues discreetly with Invisalign®.
Does Invisalign Straighten Teeth?
Invisalign clear aligner trays are engineered to gradually straighten and move your teeth into their correct positions. Aligner trays are customized to fit your teeth snugly so they exert just the right amount of corrective pressure. You’ll actually use a series of trays, moving from one set to the next about every two weeks. Invisalign is often called clear or transparent braces because it is virtually impossible to see them when you wear them. With Invisalign in Ludlow, you can enjoy a straighter, more confident smile without anyone noticing your clear braces.
How Long Is Invisalign Treatment?
Treatment usually takes between 10 months and two years, depending on how much your teeth need to be realigned, straightened or rotated. While treatment time for teens varies fairly widely, the average adult treatment takes about a year.
What Type of Dentist Provides Invisalign?
Licensed orthodontists and general dentists with Invisalign training can provide the aligner tray treatment. Our Invisalign dentists are experienced with using the system and can help you achieve a straighter, more self-assured smile.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign vs Braces?
The most important element of deciding between Invisalign vs braces is determining what treatment is most effective for your orthodontic needs. Invisalign in Ludlow is as efficient as braces for addressing mild and moderate problems such as slight overbites and mildly crooked teeth. Braces are often a better option for people with severe overcrowding and other complicated issues. Our trusted dentists can help you weigh the benefits of Invisalign so that you can make the best decision for you.
What Are Some Perks of Choosing Invisalign?
Many patients find Invisalign more appealing than adult braces for a few reasons:
- Aligner trays are removable at any time.
- Plastic aligner trays don’t have any metal wires or brackets to irritate your mouth.
- Dental visits are brief and only occur once a month to every six weeks.
- You can eat all the foods you want.
- Caring for aligner trays is simple.
- Your smile is metal-free, and your aligner trays are virtually invisible.
Who Is Eligible for Invisalign?
Teens and adults with moderate or mild orthodontic problems are good candidates for Invisalign in Ludlow. Invisalign is usually not suitable for kids since their mouths and teeth are still developing. To discover the best treatment for your own smile, call us for a consultation.
What Are the Normal Invisalign Costs?
In general, affordable Invisalign is available for about the same cost as conventional metal braces. Dental insurance, health savings accounts and other programs may be available to help decrease your overall Invisalign cost. Your final Invisalign cost depends on the degree of treatment you require. Extensive correction often takes longer to achieve and costs more, so a consultation with our Invisalign dentists can help determine your total Invisalign cost.
Does Insurance Cover Invisalign?
Invisalign and other orthodontic treatments are often partially covered by dental insurance plans. To find out how to use your Invisalign insurance coverage, contact our dental office.
What Follow-Up Is Necessary After Treatment?
For the most part, you can resume your normal dental check-ups after you’ve had Invisalign treatment. To prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original position, our Invisalign dentists may recommend that you wear Invisalign retainers after you’ve completed treatment.
