Invisalign® in Collingdale, PA

If you’re unhappy with your bite or the alignment of your teeth, traditional metal braces aren’t your only option. Our dentists know how to straighten teeth in a discreet, convenient way using Invisalign®.

What Is Invisalign?

During Invisalign treatment, a series of custom-made, invisible plastic aligner trays are worn over your teeth. They work like transparent braces, gradually moving your teeth into the desired position over time. You’ll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next. Aligners can correct a variety of mild to moderate orthodontic problems without any need for unsightly wires or brackets. They’re virtually invisible while you’re wearing them. When you get Invisalign in Collingdale, only you and our trusted dentists will ever have to know.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

In many cases, you can find affordable Invisalign at a cost that’s comparable to traditional metal braces. Our experienced dentists can determine the final Invisalign cost, which will depend on the extent and complexity of your orthodontic problems. Extensive correction may take longer and cost more. Dental insurance plans may cover a significant portion of treatment costs. To determine the extent of your Invisalign insurance coverage, contact our dental practice or your insurance provider. Flexible payment plans and low-interest financing options may also be available. Contact our office for details.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

The length of Invisalign treatment depends on how much your teeth need to be straightened, rotated, or re-positioned. Our dentists will devise a plan to move your teeth into their target position over a period of months. Treatment generally takes between ten months and two years. The average treatment time for adults is about one year. Treatment time for teens varies. After successful treatment, you may need to wear Invisalign retainers to maintain your results.

Invisalign Dentists

A licensed orthodontist or general dentist who has completed Invisalign training can provide treatment with orthodontic aligner trays. If you want to obtain the best possible results from Invisalign in Collingdale, our Invisalign dentists have experience with the aligner-tray treatment system and can help you achieve a straighter smile in the shortest amount of time possible.

Invisalign vs. Braces

When you’re trying to decide between traditional braces and invisible aligners, appearance is a strong factor, but effective treatment is even more important. If you have only mild or moderate orthodontic problems, the aligner tray system may be just as effective as adult braces in correcting your simple crowding or spacing problem, malocclusion, or crooked teeth. An added benefit of aligners is better access to your teeth during oral hygiene. Because you remove the trays while you eat and before you brush and floss your teeth, it’s easier to keep your teeth clean and reduce your risk of gum disease and tooth decay. However, if you have extensive or complex orthodontic problems, traditional braces may work faster and be more effective. When your choices are narrowed down to Invisalign vs. braces, our dentists are best qualified to help you make the right decision.

Benefits of Invisalign

For many patients, Invisalign benefits outweigh the benefits of adult braces. Consider the following perks of correcting your smile with invisible aligner trays:

  • You’ll only need to visit our dental office every four to six weeks.
  • You can eat all the foods you enjoy.
  • The trays are removable at any time.
  • No metal wires or objects will irritate your mouth.
  • You’ll enjoy the confidence and beauty of an attractive, metal-free smile.

Can Anyone Get Invisalign?

Not everyone is an ideal candidate for Invisalign in Collingdale. Although the treatment works well for adults and teens, children’s needs are more complicated because their mouths are still developing. People with severe crowding, spacing, or bite problems may be poor candidates for correction with aligners. Contact us to schedule a consultation to learn about the best treatment options for your unique needs.

How Does Treatment Affect Lifestyle?

  • Because the appliances are removed before eating, there are no food or beverage restrictions.
  • Chewing gum may stick to the plastic and isn’t recommended while wearing aligners.
  • Smoking or chewing tobacco may stain the trays.

Taking Care of Aligner Trays

  • Clean your trays using the manufacturer’s cleaning system, which is available at our office.
  • As an alternative, brush and rinse them in cool or lukewarm water. Never use hot water; this can damage your aligners.
  • If an aligner tray becomes warped, cracked, or damaged, visit our dental office immediately for a replacement. A damaged tray cannot provide the proper amount of pressure to perform its duties.
