Why Should I Get Invisalign as an Adult?
Invisalign was created to be an orthodontic treatment that is flexible to your lifestyle. As an adult, you may be facing new problems that come with aging or old issues that were never fixed when you were younger. No matter what the problem is, Invisalign is here to correct it all.
A common misconception is that orthodontic treatment is purely for aesthetics, but correctly positioned teeth are a staple of great oral healthcare. You deserve to have a healthy smile, and Invisalign is a great way to achieve this. With these sets of clear aligners, you can shift your teeth into the desired position without worrying about people noticing your treatment every time you smile. Invisalign is a popular choice among adults who are looking for a more discreet option.
How Will You Start My Treatment Plan?
We will first take a 3D image of your teeth and use this to assess your needs. Thankfully to technological advancements, we can project the desired final smile to see what you are working toward. These images are crucial in creating a series of aligners fitted perfectly to maximize your treatment and achieve the best smile possible. Dr. Just will craft a step-by-step plan that will gradually move your teeth closer to the end goal. Once you receive your initial pair of clear aligners, you will get a new set every two weeks. Each set will be adjusted according to the created plan and will gently, but consistently, shift your smile. You will continue to receive new aligners every two weeks until the end of your treatment.
How Long Will My Treatment Last?
The length of Invisalign treatments depends on the patient. The time frame varies based on the severity of the issues being treated, and if more extensive solutions are required, it may prolong your treatment. Overall, Invisalign treatments last about as long as those of traditional metal braces. The typical timeframe for many patients falls between the one to two-year range.

How Much Will My Invisalign Clear Aligners Cost?
Invisalign is an investment that will benefit you for years to come. Improving your oral health and self-esteem levels, we believe it is a worthwhile use of your money. That being said, we work hard to deliver affordable orthodontic care to our community and want to help you achieve a smile you’re proud to wear. We enjoy partnering with your insurance providers and offering a variety of flexible financing plans so that you can look in the mirror and see a smile you love without being afraid to look in your wallet.
How Do I Sanitize Invisalign?
You don’t need any extra stress in your life, and that is why Invisalign is easy to clean and put back in so that you don’t have to worry about any nasty bacteria. You are already brushing your teeth twice a day and frequently flossing to maintain good oral health. Whenever you remove your aligners for this process, just take your toothbrush and use warm water to clean out your aligners, so no unwanted carriers are put back on your freshly cleaned pearly whites.
Is Invisalign Uncomfortable?
Not at all! Invisalign aligners are printed using a thermoplastic called SmartTrack that has been engineered for patient comfort. This is in addition to the aligners being printed to fit snugly on your teeth, so there is no room for uncomfortable rubbing or jabbing. We also make sure to cut down any excess material from the top so your gums don’t become agitated. If there is any discomfort to be had, it may be the natural pain that accompanies the shifting of fully grown teeth. This discomfort is highly manageable, though, and we suggest any over-the-counter pain reliever to help counteract pain.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is becoming wildly popular with patients of all ages because of the freedom it allows its wearers. The aligners are clear and almost imperceptible to those who don’t already know they’re there. This means no unsightly brackets or concern for what your smile will look like while trying to get the smile of your dreams.
Another great benefit of Invisalign is that you don’t have to make any changes to your diet. The aligners are easy to remove and replace, so you don’t have to cut out your favorite treats for the sake of keeping brackets and wires intact. Invisalign gives you the ability to live your life the way you always have while changing it for the better.
