Have you considered getting your teeth straightened but still aren’t 100% sure if you should invest in it?
You’re not alone.
I’ve met a lot of people who like the idea of a straighter smile but hesitate to take action.
They aren’t sure what kind of braces to get. They’re concerned that the process will take too long. And they worry that it will be difficult to talk and eat, not to mention how hard it might be to practice good homecare.
Those questions and concerns are perfectly valid. Investing in orthodontics is a major commitment of both time and money.
To help you determine what course of action is best for you, I thought I’d answer some common questions we hear regularly in our Mount Prospect dental office.
Life with Invisalign – How Long Does Invisalign Take to Straighten Teeth and Other FAQs
How Long Does Invisalign Take to Straighten Teeth?
Typically, Invisalign is 50% faster than traditional braces. The average adult can be out of treatment within 12 months.
Of course, some cases are more difficult than others and require more time. Some people wear Invisalign aligners just as long as people in traditional braces.
When you have an Invisalign assessment, we’ll be able to determine how long your course of treatment will need to be.
Will Invisalign Work for Me?
This question requires more than a “yes” or “no” answer.
Each person is unique and has their individual needs.
People who have jawbone issues – like a crossbite, overbite, or underbite – are usually better candidates for traditional braces.
Many patients, though, respond well to the Invisalign process.
Here’s a little preview of how Invisalign works.
How Will the Invisalign Aligners Impact My Daily Life and Speech?
You’ll need to wear the aligners most of the day. In fact, the only time you should remove them is to eat or to brush and floss your teeth.
While the aligners aren’t super bulky, they will take some getting used to. However, it doesn’t take long before you’ll be talking like normal. Some people even forget they’re wearing them.
Do You Want a Healthy, Straighter, Gleaming Smile?
The next question you need to consider when making this decision is: Do you want to feel confident about your smile?
That may seem like a silly question. After all – who doesn’t want a nice smile? Let me assure you – you are worth the investment.
You have to look beyond the cosmetic components of orthodontics and look at the practical ones.
For example, straighter teeth make it easier to brush and floss, thereby reducing the risk of decay and gum disease.
That alone justifies the Invisalign cost for many.
