Invisalign in Newington, CT
Invisalign has revolutionized orthodontics by replacing traditional brackets and wires with clear plastic aligners. The Invisalign system is just as effective at straightening teeth as braces, but patients find them more comfortable, convenient, and discreet.
Your aligners will be made custom for you from a smooth, invisible plastic material that slowly shifts your teeth and bite into proper alignment. The advantage of choosing an orthodontist for Invisalign is that we receive advanced education in planning treatment and mapping how your teeth should move, ensuring that you’ll have a beautiful smile in the shortest possible amount of time.
Patients love Invisalign because it allows them to continue to eat their favorite foods, brush and floss as usual, and smile proudly even while undergoing orthodontic treatment. Instead of having to come to our office every few weeks to have wires tightened, you’ll simply pop in a new set of aligners every two weeks or as directed.
If you’ve always wanted straighter teeth, but aren’t crazy about the idea of traditional metal braces, we’d love to tell you more about Invisalign and help you decide if it’s right for you.
Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign
How much does it cost for Invisalign?
The cost of Invisalign in Hartford varies depending on the number of aligners you need and the length of your treatment. You can expect the price to be between $3000 and $7000. If your dental insurance covers orthodontic treatment, it will usually cover at least part of your Invisalign costs.
How long does it take to straighten your teeth with Invisalign?
More complex orthodontic cases can take a longer amount of time to correct, but the average treatment time ranges between nine and 18 months. Invisalign only works when you’re wearing your aligners, so if you remove them often and leave them out for extended periods of time, your treatment time may be longer.
Is Invisalign worth getting?
Absolutely! If you’ve always wanted to correct your bite or straighten your teeth, but you’re put off by the idea of braces, you’ll love Invisalign. Many of our Invisalign patients are adults who’ve spent their whole lives wishing for straighter teeth. It’s worth investing in yourself and not only will you experience a boost in self-esteem, you’ll also have better overall oral health when your orthodontic issues are corrected.
Can Invisalign ruin your teeth?
Invisalign doesn’t ruin your teeth. The system is designed to move your teeth in a slow, controlled, and predictable manner. When your teeth are in proper alignment, they’re easier to clean and less prone to wear and other damage.
Is Invisalign a permanent fix?
No orthodontic treatment is a permanent fix without maintenance. In the case of Invisalign, that means wearing a retainer as directed once your treatment is complete. A retainer helps prevent orthodontic relapse, a term we orthodontists use to describe when teeth move back into their original positions. Use your retainer and you’ll have a beautiful smile for a lifetime.
Does Invisalign turn your teeth yellow?
No, Invisalign doesn’t turn your teeth yellow, but eating and drinking and then putting your aligners back in without brushing or rinsing can cause stains or even decay on your teeth. This is why it’s important to practice good oral hygiene with Invisalign.
