    For an attractive smile and a thriving well-being

    Not only does having properly aligned teeth enhance your appearance, but it also serves as a preventative measure against expensive dental and medical issues. While it may seem unlikely, the significance of having straight teeth for a healthy lifestyle cannot be understated. Even if you don’t currently experience any discomfort from crooked teeth, it is crucial to understand that their correct alignment is essential for optimal functionality and long-term durability.

    Close to 90% of individuals experience some degree of tooth crowding or misalignment, leading to various potential complications, including:
    • Fractured front teeth or tooth loss.
    • Food becoming trapped between teeth.
    • Challenges in flossing and effectively cleaning between teeth.
    • Heightened susceptibility to cavities between teeth.
    • Gum disease, which escalates the likelihood of developing systemic health issues like heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, and an increased risk of stroke.

    If you have any of the above conditions, schedule an appointment at our office for an evaluation of your oral health.

    When Is A Good Time To Start?

    You may have contemplated the idea of aligning your teeth for quite some time, or perhaps your dentist recently advised it as a necessity. Regardless, delaying the start of the process only prolongs your dissatisfaction and raises the chances of tooth damage and associated health issues. It is crucial to remember that teeth continue to shift over time.

    Your teeth will be more out of alignment in a few years than they are today.

    The more severe the misalignment, the longer the treatment duration. It’s best to address teeth straightening before it becomes severe to save time and expenses. Affordable payment options are available, and our office can provide further details.

    What Can You Expect Once You Start Your Treatment?

    Our primary goal is to assist our patients in attaining both oral health and a captivating smile by establishing a solid foundation. This entails aligning the teeth to ensure proper positioning and optimal functionality. It’s worth noting that age should never hinder one from benefiting from teeth straightening treatments.

    Your Treatment Plan

    The journey commences with digital scans of your teeth, which serve as the foundation for your personalized treatment plan. Leveraging Invisalign’s advanced software, we can precisely anticipate the progression of your teeth alignment throughout the treatment duration. We can even provide visual representations of how your teeth will transform over weeks, months, and upon completion of the treatment. Once the digital plan is finalized, cutting-edge printing technology is employed by Invisalign to create your custom aligners.

    The First Aligners

    Upon receiving the aligners, it may be necessary to utilize special temporary fasteners. These fasteners are bonded to your teeth, enabling convenient attachment of the aligners. Rest assured, they are predominantly discreet and can be removed at the conclusion of your treatment.

    Follow-Up Appointments

    You will receive a new set of clear aligners every two weeks, and each set should be worn during this period. Gradually, your teeth will shift as you progress through the series of aligners, ultimately reaching their desired and proper position. Regular visits to our office, approximately once every 1-2 months, will be scheduled to monitor the progress of your treatment and ensure its effectiveness.

    Cost Of Invisalign in St. Thomas

    Under a typical insurance plan, the cost of Invisalign treatment typically ranges from $3000 to $5000+ as an out-of-pocket expense. Following an oral examination, we can provide you with a precise quote, allowing you to determine the coverage offered by your insurance plan and the actual expenses you would need to cover. In the absence of insurance, the usual cost of Invisalign treatment is around $4000 to $6000+.

    Determining the cost of your Invisalign treatment involves considering several factors, which may contribute to the perception of expenses. When evaluating orthodontic costs, the following aspects are taken into account:

    • The present state of your oral health.
    • The extent of teeth movement required.
    • The duration of your treatment.

    These factors play a role in establishing the comprehensive cost of your Invisalign treatment. By considering these elements, an accurate assessment of the treatment expenses can be made.

    To determine the cost and suitability of Invisalign, a consultation is necessary. During the consultation, you can share your smile goals and undergo a teeth examination. A personalized treatment plan will be tailored to meet your specific needs. Please note that age and ambitious smile aspirations should not deter you from inquiring about Invisalign eligibility. Solutions are available for various cases, from express to advanced functional and cosmetic treatments. In cases beyond our expertise, we will refer you to the appropriate specialist.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Invisalign is suitable for both adults and teenagers. It is a popular choice for adults who desire a more discreet orthodontic treatment option.

    To achieve optimal results, it is recommended to wear Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. The aligners should only be removed during meals and oral hygiene routines.

    Invisalign can effectively address a variety of orthodontic issues, including gaps between teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, and crowded teeth. However, the complexity of the case will determine if Invisalign is the most appropriate treatment option.

    Invisalign differs from traditional braces in several ways. Invisalign utilizes clear aligners that are virtually invisible, while traditional braces use metal brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing for easier oral hygiene maintenance, while traditional braces are fixed appliances. The treatment duration and level of discomfort may also vary between the two options.

    While there may be a slight adjustment period, wearing Invisalign aligners typically does not have a significant impact on speech. Some individuals may experience a temporary lisp or slight changes in pronunciation, but these effects are generally minor and diminish as the mouth adjusts to the aligners.
