Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth. The aligners are made using 3D computer imaging technology, which allows Dr. Michael Buck, a Gold+ Invisalign Provider, to create a customized treatment plan for each patient.
Invisalign offers several advantages over traditional metal braces, such as:
Some factors that may make someone a good candidate for Invisalign treatment include:
Unlike traditional braces that use metal wires and brackets, Invisalign aligners are made of virtually invisible clear plastic. You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, for at least 20 to 22 hours. You remove the aligners only when you eat, drink, brush, and floss your teeth. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually shift until they’ve straightened to the final position.
Whether or not insurance covers Invisalign treatment will depend on your plan. Some insurance plans cover orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign, up to a dollar amount or percentage of the total cost. Check with your insurance provider to determine what’s covered under your plan.
Invisalign treatment is typically less painful than traditional braces. However, you may experience discomfort or soreness when you first start wearing a new set of aligners. This discomfort is normal and should subside within a few days. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help manage any discomfort.
The length of Invisalign treatment will vary depending on the patient's needs. On average, treatment lasts between nine and 15 months. However, the length of treatment can be longer or shorter depending on the case’s complexity.
Invisalign treatment can produce permanent results if the patient follows the prescribed treatment plan and wears their retainer as directed. The retainer helps to keep teeth in their new position and prevent them from shifting back. Follow all instructions from your orthodontist to ensure that your Invisalign results last a lifetime.
Invisalign is a discreet and comfortable way to straighten your teeth without the hassle of traditional metal braces. Dr. Buck, a Gold+ Invisalign Provider, can create a customized treatment plan that meets your unique needs. With Invisalign, you can achieve a beautiful smile without anyone knowing you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. Call our Creston, IA, office today at 641-782-4747 to schedule your consultation.
