Patients in the Phoenix area who want to achieve straight teeth are often afraid of having to wear metal bracket and wire braces. This is especially true for patients who work with others on a day-to-day basis and have to look their best. Thanks to continued dental advancements, patients can now enjoy alternative orthodontic options including Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is extremely advantageous to patients who are uneasy about covering their smile with metal. Dr. Sameet Koppikar and his team encourage individuals to consider Invisalign. Instead of brackets and wires, this method uses clear aligners. These trays are worn all day and all night to gently reposition the teeth into better alignment.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign can be used for patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the dental arch as well as a poor bite. Patients must understand that compliance is key to achieving desirable results. If patients do not wear their trays as instructed, they may experience delays in their treatment plan as well as additional costs to prepare extra trays.
What is the cost of Invisalign?
Invisalign varies in total cost due to a variety of factors. This includes the degree of misalignment, if preparations such as tooth extraction are needed, and if patients comply throughout the course of treatment. Most patients find Invisalign to be affordable and comparable in cost to traditional braces.
