Misconceptions About the Price of Invisalign®?
When Invisalign® first come onto the market, it was a little more expensive than traditional braces since not many dentists had used it and not many people had used it for their orthodontic treatment. In recent years, some people may have the misconception that this treatment is still out of their price range. However, Invisalign.com says that many dental insurance plans can actually cover a good portion of the cost, just like traditional braces. In fact, some plans can cover $1000 or more, or 50% of the maximum threshold! If the cost is too high, there

Even If the Cost Becomes Reasonable, Why Else Should I Choose Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is the least invasive form of teeth straightening. Perhaps the most amazing thing about Invisalign® is that it will give you the same results as traditional braces, except without the pain and hassle. And in many cases, it will be much easier to keep your teeth from becoming discolored or decalcified.
For instance, according to an article on Science Direct, patients who underwent banding processes (slang for orthodontic treatment that places metal bands on teeth) had more white spot lesions (WSLs) than the control group. While WSLs can certainly be caused by a poor diet, they can easily occur with traditional braces since it is very difficult to thoroughly clean around them. With Invisalign®, you can just take the tray out, so your oral hygiene regimen will be as good as it was before treatment.
More Reasons to Inquire About Invisalign®
There are definitely more benefits than being less invasive or easier to clean:
There’s no need to tighten Invisalign® like traditional braces, so you won’t need to see your dentist as often. Some parents have to take their children out of school often to meet with the dentist, but having Invisalign® can void that issue.
Invisalign® is custom made for every gap, crevice, and curve of your smile, so it will fit your teeth without the discomfort of traditional methods of teeth straightening.
Invisalign® is easy to remove. If you feel any discomfort, you can take it out for up to 2 hours a day.
You won’t have any tooth breakage or weakness that people with braces face. This helps to reduce pain.
There is no change in speech because it fits so closely on your teeth.
There are no dietary restrictions while wearing Invisalign®. With traditional braces you can’t eat things like corn on the cob, popcorn, toffee, etc. When it’s time to eat, take it out. When you’re done eating, put it back in. It’s that easy!
Invisalign® is invisible, so there will be no visible alterations in your smile (except for straighter teeth).
You won’t get food caught in your braces, so you won’t need to carry around a travel toothbrush and special flosser whenever you want to eat out.
Is there any catch? As you can see, there’s definitely a lot of benefits of Invisalign®, but it’s not a cure-all. If a patient has incredibly severe malocclusions, then he or she may need traditional braces after the Invisalign®. If this is what your dentist recommends, make sure you get the quote for both portions of the treatment. If you or your child has minor issues, then you can just stick with Invisalign®.
