Invisalign® Clear Braces – Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta – Frequently Asked Questions
With its aesthetic advantages over traditional braces, The Invisalign® system is a highly popular treatment for crooked or misaligned teeth. Invisalign® aligners are also much more comfortable to wear than metal braces. Patients at our locations in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta, are often interested in finding answers to the following questions about Invisalign® clear invisible braces. At Dental Choice, we are committed to providing comprehensive information, personal care and attention, and outstanding treatments.
Why Choose Invisalign®?
Invisalign® clear braces are an excellent solution for patients with misaligned teeth. In the past, metal braces were practically the only option for straightening crooked teeth. Patients had no choice but to endure a metallic smile (and cumbersome brackets and bands) while they received treatment. Now, with the advent of the Invisalign® system, patients can receive orthodontic care that is more ideally suited to their lifestyles and needs. With Invisalign® invisible braces, it is almost impossible for others to notice that you are undergoing treatment! Invisalign® retainers also straighten teeth gradually and gently, without the soreness and discomfort that traditional braces often cause.
Who Is a Candidate for Invisalign® Clear Braces?
Practically all candidates for traditional metal braces are candidates for Invisalign® clear braces. In fact, Invisalign® clear braces make receiving orthodontic care easier and less noticeable than ever before. If you've delayed treatment because of the inconvenience associated with metal braces, the Invisalign® system can help you achieve a beautifully, straight smile discretely and comfortably.
Can I Remove Invisalign® Invisible Braces To Eat And Brush My Teeth?
Yes, another significant advantage of Invisalign® retainers is that they are easily removable. You don't have to worry about avoiding certain foods and drinks while you undergo treatment; you can enjoy eating and drinking as you normally would.
In addition, it's easy to maintain oral hygiene while undergoing treatment with Invisalign® invisible braces. Traditional metal braces present significant obstacles to proper dental maintenance, but removable Invisalign® retainers enable you to brush and floss your teeth without difficulty.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Each Invisalign® retainer is worn for about two weeks, and approximately 18 to 30 aligners are necessary to achieve the desired results. Treatment is usually completed in about one year.
Does Insurance Cover Invisalign® Treatment?
Yes, insurance plans that cover orthodontic treatment do not generally make any distinctions between Invisalign® invisible braces and traditional metal braces. Our staff will gladly help you determine the amount of coverage that is available to you. We also offer several convenient payment plans.
