Straight smiles are on the wish lists of many, and modern dentistry has made it increasingly easier to acquire a straight smile in relatively a short amount of time – especially if your case is mild.
Invisalign is one of our chosen methods of teeth straightening practices at our DentistsRUs locations around the Lower Mainland. These clear aligners help to correct crooked teeth, and determining if you are a good candidate for this type of treatment is the first step to your straight smile for summer!
Is Invisalign Right for Everyone?
Not all individuals are a good candidate for Invisalign, but determining this will be discussed at your consultation, which is also an opportunity to discuss the cost involved, whether or not your insurance coverage includes this type of process, and any additional questions you might have regarding Invisalign.
The Benefits of Invisalign for Teens
Teens enjoy the flexibility of Invisalign, as they are able to remove the aligners for sporting events, class presentations, or as they see fit for personal preference. Of course removing the aligners too often will slow the straightening process, but the end goal can still be achieved.
Is Invisalign Right for Children?
Straightening a child’s teeth is more complicated as they are still growing and developing; so your dental professional will likely steer you towards more traditional methods for children who need additional assistance arriving at a straight smile.
How Long will Invisalign Treatments Take?
Treatment usually takes between 10 and 24 months, but those with really minor misaligned teeth concerns, such as those who once wore braces but failed to wear their retainers afterwards, will see results in as little as 10 week …which will have you arriving at a straight smile by the end of summer!
How Much are Invisalign Retainers?
In most cases, Invisalign treatment costs between $5,000 – $6,000, but can be discussed with your DentistsRUs dental professional upon your consultation.
