It is common for Dr. Sameet Koppikar of Biltmore Dental Center to see patients in his practice who are ready to take charge of their smile’s appearance. When problems such as misalignment occur, patients may want to find out more about the treatments available to achieve a more attractive look and better function. However, traditional braces, which use metal brackets and wires are a turn-off for many patients in the Phoenix area. This is when our team may suggest the benefits of using alternative solutions such as Invisalign.
Invisalign is different. Instead of using brackets and wires to reposition the teeth, Invisalign utilizes clear aligner trays. These trays are worn to gently move teeth into better alignment and to fix problems such as poor bite alignment. Patients who have mild to moderate misalignment of the smile can benefit from this treatment.
Invisalign requires patients to wear trays every day. They must be worn day and night to be effective. A series of trays are made and patients wear each one for two weeks before moving on to the next one in the series. As long as patients comply with treatment, they will see the results they desire.
Patients who are interested in treatments such as Invisalign often ask about the price. Price of Invisalign braces will vary greatly depending on several factors. This includes how many trays are needed to reposition the teeth properly. Some patients may have fewer trays in their series than others, depending on the severity of their tooth misalignment. Additionally, patients who do not properly comply with treatment may experience delays in their results and might require additional trays. This adds to the overall price of treatment. Patients with dental insurance may also be quoted a different price than those who do not have insurance coverage.
