Smiling is the universal language of kindness. Affordable Invisalign treatment from Brady Dental in Amarillo, Texas makes kindness count. Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth without the awkwardness and guesswork of metal braces. Affordable Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment at Brady Dental that helps to straighten teeth without the use of the typical metal braces, shifting your teeth into the proper position for a kind smile.
Invisalign treatment is the most advanced clear aligner system around and Invisalign is backed by more than two decades of innovation. Affordable Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation at Brady Dental. Your smile will be assessed by professionals and then a precise, customized digital Invisalign treatment plan will begin.
Digital x-rays, digital models with Itero, and photographs of your teeth will help to create a map that the dentists at Brady Dental will follow. Your teeth will change over time with the Invisalign treatment and dentists at Brady Dental can show you how your teeth will look for weeks, months, and eventually at the end of your treatment.
For most patients, the time frame for Invisalign treatment lasts about a year to eighteen months, but it depends on your unique plan. The aligners will be worn for 22 hours a day, changing to a new set of aligners every 10 days to 2 weeks, as directed. Each set of aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place, according to your treatment plan, until your new smile appears.
Invisalign works and will not irritate your cheeks like traditional braces and can be removed for meals and brushing. Whenever you need to brush and floss, you can just remove your aligners, clean your entire mouth, and put them back in. Special attachments may be necessary. These small, tooth-colored shapes are attached to your teeth and serve as handles, giving the aligners something to gently push on in order to move your teeth with the right amount of force, and are what make the tooth movements possible without braces. These are bonded temporarily to your teeth so that you can easily clip in your aligners. The attachments are invisible and polish off at the end of treatment.
Discomfort is minimal and occurs mainly at the beginning due to your teeth adjusting. Because Invisalign is removable, there are no food restrictions at all. In most cases, you will need to visit your dentist at Brady Dental in Amarillo about every 6 weeks as part of your affordable Invisalign treatment. The goal of these visits is to ensure your Invisalign treatment is progressing as planned.
Traditional braces typically cost $3,000 to $6,000. Invisalign, on the other hand, averages $5,500. Luckily, both types of treatments are covered by most dental insurance plans. Be sure to check with your dental insurance company for details on which treatment is more affordable for you.
Once you have completed your Invisalign treatment, it might be hard to see a change in your smile, since you have never stopped seeing your own teeth when you smiled. However, on the other hand, getting the attachments removed and no longer having to wear aligners will be a relief. With most orthodontic procedures, there is always a risk of your teeth reverting back to their original position over time. Brady Dental professionals will help you find a retainer system that works for your treatment and make sure to wear your retainer as directed to maintain your new perfect smile.
Once you have decided to use the Invisalign treatment, take comfort in the thought that it would only be a matter of time before you have a beautiful, healthy, kind smile. The kind of smile you have always wanted at an affordable price with Brady Dental in Amarillo, Texas.
