Summerlin and Las Vegas, NV
Do you desire straighter teeth but do not like the idea of traditional metal braces? Traditional braces, although effective, are not always the best option for patients concerned with aesthetics and comfort. If this sounds like you, Invisalign in Summerlin may be ideal.
Inspire Dental of Summerlin is proud to offer Invisalign, the invisible way to straighten your teeth.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners to adjust your teeth in a similar manner as braces. Just like traditional braces, these aligners apply a small amount of pressure on your teeth to move them into the preferred alignment, except without the need for metal brackets and wires. The aligners are custom made and fit directly over your teeth, and people will hardly notice you are wearing them. Every two weeks you swap your aligners for a new set until desired results have been reached. For best results, be sure to wear your aligners up to 22 hours per day.
Is Invisalign better than traditional braces?
For decades, traditional braces have proven to be effective and have straightened many smiles, but it all came with a sacrifice. Metal braces are obvious. The wires and brackets can poke the inside of your mouth, causing sore spots. Metal braces tend to trap food particles in them and are also difficult to keep clean. During treatment with metal braces, patients must avoid many foods and beverages they desire. With today’s advancements, you can get straight teeth while avoiding these inconveniences.
Invisalign is exactly the opposite. The aligners are hardly noticeable, and they are comfortable with smooth edges. Invisalign aligners can be easily removed so that you can eat and drink whatever you want without fear of messing up a bracket or wire. Plus, the aligners are easy to keep clean. Since you remove your aligners to brush and floss, oral hygiene is as easy as it always has been.
How fast can I get straight teeth with Invisalign?
The length of treatment will vary for each patient, but typically lasts between 12 to 18 months, unlike metal braces that can take several years or longer!
How much does Invisalign treatment cost?
The cost of treatment also varies, depending on how many sets of aligners you will need throughout treatment. During your initial Invisalign consultation with your Las Vegas dentist, we will determine the cost for your particular treatment. If affording Invisalign is a concern of yours, we offer a variety of payment options including special financing.
Is Invisalign right for me?
Invisalign can be ideal for many patients needing only mild to moderate correcting in their teeth. While Invisalign can straighten teeth, it is not ideal for correcting jaw alignment issues. Also, Invisalign is great for teens and adults who have all of their permanent teeth. The best way to determine if Invisalign is right for you is to have a consultation with us at Inspire Dental of Summerlin. You will have an individualized treatment plan that outlines the length of treatment and cost.
