Invisalign has gained incredible popularity as a preferred teeth straightening system, offering discreet and comfortable treatment. You see Invisalign everywhere — on social media, television, magazines, and on your friends and loved ones.
Like any popularly embraced solution, myths and misconceptions can emerge. Unfortunately, these half-truths can cloud your judgment, causing hesitation and confusion when seeking Invisalign treatment. My Dental and Implants in Glendale, Arizona, aims to dispel these misconceptions by presenting the facts.
Invisalign was created over 20 years ago and has since been used to transform millions of smiles worldwide. While other clear braces have emerged, including mail-order options, they are nowhere near Invisalign. Invisalign uses the highly researched SmartTrack Aligner Technology to design aligners that offer a more comfortable and precise fit than other brands.
While it’s true Invisalign was used to fix mild orthodontic problems after its invention, this system has undergone tremendous improvements over the years. Today, Invisalign can treat simple, moderate to complex orthodontic issues, including overbites, underbites, and open bites.
Invisalign trays can cause mild discomfort in the first few days as teeth get used to them. However, after the adjustment period, you’ll experience comfortable treatment like never before. Invisalign trays are created from comfortable material designed to fit snugly over your teeth for optimal comfort. What’s more, Invisalign trays don’t have sharp edges that can irritate your gums, cheeks, and other soft tissues.
Another commonly peddled myth. The Invisalign cost depends on many factors, including the complexity of the case, your insurance, treatment duration, etc. Get in touch with a competent Invisalign provider like Dr. Nima Afzalian for precise Invisalign costs.
Typically, many insurance plans cover part of the Invisalign cost. However, flexible payment options exist to make your treatment affordable.
Invisalign isn’t a do-it-yourself orthodontic treatment. This treatment requires professional guidance from start to finish to avoid sub-optimal results or compromising your oral health.
In the past, braces were associated with teens, but that isn’t the case anymore. Invisalign trays appeal to all ages, including adults with busy lives. Thanks to its discreet and removable nature, Invisalign fits perfectly into adults’ lives.
