Are crooked teeth keeping you from sharing your smile? Perhaps it’s gaps or spaces between your teeth that have you feeling self-conscious. Or maybe you’ve thought about straightening your teeth, but you don’t want to wear braces. If this sounds like you, Invisalign at Pure Dental Studio in Houston, TX can help!
How Does Invisalign Work?
Using clear aligners made of plastic, Invisalign applies gentle pressure to straighten crooked teeth or close the spaces between them gradually. The aligners should be worn at least 22 hours each day and changed every two weeks to achieve the best results; however, you can easily remove them for eating, brushing, and flossing your teeth. Invisalign is an efficient orthodontic treatment, and we can complete most cases can in 12 to 18 months.
The Advantages of Choosing Invisalign
Invisalign offers patients many benefits over wearing traditional metal braces. The most significant advantage is the discretion of wearing plastic aligners, which are virtually invisible. That means that no one will realize you are straightening your teeth.
The aligners are also more comfortable to wear than braces, because you’re not dealing with wires or brackets that poke or irritate your soft tissues. They also provide a tight fit, so they don’t interfere with talking or your other normal activities.
Best of all, you don’t have to change your diet, and you’ll be able to enjoy all the foods you love since your aligners are removable. You also don’t have to worry about brushing and flossing around brackets and wires, which can be challenging.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Every patient is unique and has different needs when it comes to treatment with Invisalign. This means that treatment costs vary based on the length and complexity of their case.
For most patients, treatment with Invisalign is typically comparable to the cost of traditional orthodontic treatment. If you have dental insurance that includes an orthodontic benefit, you can use it towards treatment with Invisalign. Your team at Pure Dental Studio can help you determine if your insurance offers an orthodontic benefit and how that affects your out-of-pocket cost for Invisalign.
Our dentists are certified Invisalign providers, and they can help you determine if this is the right treatment for you during a complimentary consultation. Using photos, x-rays, 3-D imaging and a thorough examination of your teeth, our dentists will create your individual treatment plan if you decide that Invisalign is right for you.
