Invisalign – Don Mills
Invisalign® straightens teeth to give you the confidence of a great smile. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that are practically invisible and gently and gradually brings your teeth into their proper position based on the treatment plan you and your doctor have agreed upon. There are no wires or brackets and this is a convenience that can be enjoyed even during treatment and especially afterwards. Most people can’t even tell when you’re wearing Invisalign. Also, Invisalign aligners can be removed so you are able to eat what you want, when you want and easily maintain oral hygiene like you typically would.
You’ll visit your orthodontist or dentist every 6-8 weeks and on average, Invisalign treatment takes less than a year.
How does Invisalign Work?The virtually invisible aligners, which are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed for the Invisalign treatment plan, look similar to teeth-whitening trays. A series of Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you, to move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving onto the next set of aligners in your treatment plan.
How often do I need to wear my aligners?It is recommended that you wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day and only remove them for eating or drinking, brushing and flossing.
Will wearing Invisalign aligners affect my speech?Invisalign aligners may temporarily affect the speech of some people, and you may have a slight lisp for a day or two. However, as you get used to having aligners in your mouth, any lisp caused by the aligners should disappear.
How much does Invisalign cost?Cost is always a concern, and only your doctor can provide the exact price of treatment. In most cases, Invisalign treatment is comparable to the cost of traditional braces. In the U.S., the cost of Invisalign treatment ranges from $3,500 to $8,000, with the national average at about $5,000.
Does insurance cover Invisalign?We can’t really speak for this as it depends on your provider and your policy, we recommend that you speak with your insurance provider; however; as far as we are aware, the Invisalign treatment should be covered to the same extend as traditional braces.
Does Invisalign really work?Yes. Over 1.5 million patients with a wide variety of dental challenges have been treated with Invisalign. Invisalign was developed with orthodontists and used in dental practices worldwide.
