If you are looking to straighten your smile, you may be wondering what your best options are. At Southeastern Dental Center in Columbus, GA, we offer clear aligners as an alternative to traditional braces.
Clear aligners are clear plastic trays that are custom-made to fit over your teeth. They gently apply pressure to your teeth to move them over time. These aligners are virtually invisible, so they are an excellent option for adults who want to straighten their teeth without everyone knowing they are wearing braces.
Unlike braces, clear aligners are also removable, so you can take them out to eat and brush your teeth.
Traditional braces are metal brackets bonded to your teeth and connected with wires. Today’s traditional braces are less visible than they used to be, but they are still not as discreet as clear aligners.
Clear aligners are an effective treatment for mild to moderate misalignment issues, whereas traditional braces are more effective at correcting more complex dental problems.
Invisalign clear aligners are the most popular clear aligner brand. They are made of clear plastic that is comfortable and not obvious when worn.
Invisalign clear aligners can be used to correct a wide variety of dental issues, including:
The Invisalign treatment process begins with a consultation with our dentist. During this appointment, we will assess your teeth and decide if Invisalign aligners are the best option. If so, we will take impressions of your teeth and send them off to the transparent aligner company.
Once we receive your new aligners, you will come into our office to have them fitted. We will make sure they are comfortable and fit well before you leave. We may need to adjust the aligners slightly to fit your gum line properly.
Once treatment begins, you must wear clear aligners for at least 22 hours daily. You can remove your aligners to eat and brush your teeth, but be sure to put them back in as soon as possible. It is essential with aligner treatment to wear the aligners as often as possible for the best results.
You’ll put in a new set of aligners every week or two, depending on the instructions our dentist gives you. Each new set will slightly adjust your teeth, slowly moving them into the correct position.
You will need to come into our office every six to eight weeks so we can check on your progress and give you new aligners. Your treatment time will vary depending on your case, but most patients finish treatment within 12-18 months.
The cost of Invisalign clear aligners varies depending on the severity of your dental issue and the length of your treatment. Invisalign clear aligners typically cost between $3,000 and $5,000.
You may contact your dental insurance provider to see if they cover clear aligner treatment. Some insurance plans will cover a portion of the cost, but others do not cover clear aligners.
Southeastern Dental Center offers financing options and affordable payment plans to cover the cost of your treatment if you do not have insurance coverage.
