Is Invisalign as effective as traditional metal braces?
As long as you wear your Invisalign aligners the recommended 20-22 hours a day, this alternative option can be just as effective as traditional braces for most common dental issues.
How do I know if Invisalign is right for me?
Invisalign has been used to treat a wide array of malocclusions from very simple to severe, including crowding, spacing, overbite, underbite, deep bite, open bite, midline shift, and crossbite. Saddle Creek Orthodontics offers a free initial consultation to prospective patients, which will let us know if you’re a good fit for this treatment. Although not everybody will be a candidate for Invisalign, most people will be. Drawing on his extensive experience with both Invisalign and traditional braces, Dr. Fagala will provide with you a more specific recommendation based on an analysis of your individual orthodontic needs following your evaluation.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
The amount of time you’ll be in Invisalign aligners will depend on the severity of your particular case, and can only be determined by Dr. Fagala after an initial orthodontic evaluation. However, most Invisalign cases are completed in around 9 to 15 months, with some less complicated cases wrapping up in as little as 6 months.
What material are Invisalign aligners made of? Are they comfortable?
Invisalign retainers are made from a patented, lightweight, BPA-free plastic material that is custom-designed to fit precisely over your teeth. This wafer thin medical material is completely clear and effectively invisible. Though there may be occasional discomfort associated with the snug fit of starting a new set of aligners, you won't have to worry about the more regular irritation and inconvenience of metal braces.
How long has Invisalign been available?
Invisalign has been available to adults since 1998, and Invisalign Teen was introduced in the summer of 2008. Since its release, over 4 million patients have benefited from its unique aligner system!
