WHAT IS ORTHODONTICS?

Orthodontics is a specialization within the field of dentistry that requires additional training and certification. Orthodontic treatment involves correcting malocclusion, which is the misalignment of a bite or incorrect spacing between teeth. This is usually accomplished through the use of orthodontic braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign. The cost of orthodontics can vary depending on the materials used, the treatment plan, and even location. Get more information by talking to an Invisalign Provider near you.

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment

Straighter teeth give you more than a great smile—they also help to reduce your risk for tooth decay and gum disease. If left untreated by a dentist, tooth decay and gum disease can cause mouth sores, tender or bleeding gums, bad breath and possible tooth loss. Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign can assist with straight teeth, helping you to avoid problems such as an improper bite, difficulty speaking or chewing, and jaw problems.

Orthodontic Treatment with Invisalign

If you need orthodontic treatment, chances are Invisalign can help. Invisalign can treat a wide range of cases. The teeth-straightening process will vary from person to person, but the basic idea stays the same. Your orthodontist will take x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth, and then use that information to create a treatment plan. You’ll receive a series of custom aligners that you’ll change about every two weeks. Over time, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place.

The cost of orthodontics

On average, Invisalign costs somewhere between $3,500 and $8,000, with a national average of $5,000. That’s comparable to the cost of most traditional orthodontic braces, and if your dental insurance company covers braces, they may similarly cover the cost of Invisalign. If your insurance provider doesn’t cover braces, and you’re concerned about paying the full amount up front, you might be able to arrange a payment plan with your provider. Find a provider and ask the right questions to help you make your decision.

Invisalign vs Orthodontic braces

Traditional orthodontic braces tend to be unsightly and uncomfortable, and they make it difficult to keep your teeth clean during orthodontic treatment. Invisalign clear aligners help you to stay confident and comfortable throughout the teeth-straightening process. They’re also removable and wire-free, so it’s easier to maintain proper oral hygiene and not worry about getting food stuck in hard-to-reach areas. Invisalign offers many advantages over orthodontic braces, often at about the same cost as other orthodontic treatments.

Orthodontic for teens

If you need orthodontic treatment, but you’re worried about how braces will look, don’t worry. Invisalign can treat many cases, and uses nearly invisible aligners that won’t show up in school photos or interfere with sports. You can also remove them to brush and floss to maintain good oral hygiene. And if you accidentally lose an aligner, there’s no need to worry. You get up to six free replacements.* Take the Teen Smile Assessment to find out if Invisalign will work for you.

information for ADULTS

Wearing orthodontic braces as an adult can be uncomfortable. Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners, which means you can take them out for special occasions and still look and feel like an adult during the orthodontic treatment process. Invisalign can treat a wide variety of cases and, if your insurance plan covers the cost of orthodontic braces, it may similarly cover the cost of Invisalign.
