What’s the Difference Between Invisalign and Traditional Braces?
In comparison to the conventional train-track braces that you may have encountered, Invisalign presents a completely different approach. The conventional braces make use of fixed brackets and wires to create a straightening force, whereas Invisalign employs a transparent plastic removable appliance that is hardly noticeable, but can achieve the same results.
How Often Should I Wear Them?
For optimal outcomes, it is recommended to wear your aligners for 22 hours each day. This leaves sufficient time for meals, as well as brushing and flossing during the day.
Can I Remove Them for a big Occassion?
With Invisalign, it’s important to maximise every hour of wear time and avoid frequent removals. We advise wearing your aligners as much as possible. Furthermore, the aligners are highly inconspicuous, often going unnoticed by others.
Is Invisalign an Alternative to Orthodontic Treatment?
Invisalign is an excellent solution for addressing a wide variety of orthodontic concerns. However, for complex issues involving the back teeth, traditional fixed braces may be a more suitable choice.
Is It Expensive?
The final cost may vary depending on factors such as treatment duration and case complexity. We will provide you with a comprehensive breakdown of the costs prior to commencing treatment. Additionally, we offer monthly payment plans and financing options to help you manage the cost of treatment.
How Often are Appointments?
To ensure that your treatment progresses smoothly, we typically recommend scheduling check-ins every 4-6 weeks. During these visits, we will provide you with your replacement aligners and assess your progress to ensure that everything is proceeding as intended.
