How Does Invisalign Work?
Everyone’s Invisalign journey starts out the same way—with a consultation! When you book yours with our amazing team, we’ll capture X-rays of your mouth as well as intraoral images to help us create a 3D model of your smile. This will allow us to see what orthodontic issues need to be addressed as well as their severity and outline a treatment plan for you, so you know what to expect throughout the process.
After committing to moving forward with our treatment plan, you’ll receive your first set of Invisalign trays, which you’ll wear for about two weeks before moving onto the next series in your treatment. Every six to eight weeks, you’ll return to our office to pick up the next sets of aligners until you’ve achieved the final results.
Indications for Invisalign
Invisalign is a versatile orthodontic treatment that can be used to address a variety of issues, like crowded and gapped teeth, and bite misalignment, ranging in mild to moderate in severity. However, the best way to learn whether you’re a good candidate for the treatment is to visit our office for a consultation.
Crowded teeth can increase your risk of developing common oral health problems like cavities and gum disease by making it harder to brush and floss them. Invisalign can straighten them out and create a smoother, easier-to-clean surface.
Gaps Between Teeth
While some people love the gaps between their teeth, others aren’t so fond of them. If this is your reality, Invisalign aligners can gradually and gently close gaps between teeth to create a symmetrical, complete row of pearly whites that you feel proud to let show.
Invisalign trays can fix minor to moderate overbite, underbite, and crossbite to help address underlying issues, like bruxism and TMJ dysfunction.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Instead of the traditional metal brackets and wires, patients will wear clear, custom-made aligners that slide in smoothly over their teeth. Their subtle appearance will be barely noticeable in everyday life, and they can be removed at any time for convenient eating, brushing, and flossing. If you would like to explore the benefits of Invisalign in greater detail, don’t hesitate to contact our team here in Falls Church.
Everyone’s teeth are unique, and so is the treatment needed to straighten them. With traditional braces, your treatment could last for multiple years. However, at Purple Plum Dentistry, we handle mild to moderate alignment issues, which means that Invisalign treatment with us typically takes between two and a half months to twelve months to complete. Invisalign clear trays makes it simple and fast to get the results you want for your smile. For those with more severe misalignment, we can refer you to great orthodontists in the area who can help correct your teeth.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
There’s no set cost for Invisalign treatment because each plan is created based on our patient’s unique needs. However, there are several factors that we take into account to figure out the cost of your treatment, including:
- Whether you need any replacement aligners
- How long your treatment will be (and as a result, how many aligners you’ll need)
- If you stay on top of your treatment plan
- The severity of the orthodontic issues you need to address
We’ll discuss each of these with you during your consultation so you know what to expect cost-wise. Our team is proud to offer in-house membership plans that include discounts on certain services as well as additional financing through CareCredit. If you have dental insurance that covers Invisalign, we’re also proudly in-network with most major plans. Don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have any cost-related questions!
