At Romani Orthodontics, we are excited to help patients of all ages experience the perfect smile. In pursuit of this goal, we make sure that all of our techniques and appliances are optimized to give you the most efficient corrective treatment possible. Invisalign® has gained popularity in recent years for being one of the most discreet and effective forms of treatment. Our adult patients love their freedom while wearing these clear aligners because they can finally have an orthodontic treatment that is flexible to their lifestyle.
Why Should I Get Invisalign® as an Adult?
Invisalign® is a state-of-the-art corrective treatment that uses a series of clear aligners to adjust your teeth over time into the perfect position for your dream smile. There are many reasons adults may benefit from orthodontic treatment, such as correcting an issue caused by an accident after childhood or issues that have worsened with time that were never addressed in their earlier years. If you’ve been wanting to improve the look and health of your smile but have been concerned about how the treatment process would affect your life, this is the perfect appliance for you.
Invisalign® is nearly invisible to everyone around you, and you can easily take your aligners out, so you have ultimate freedom during every stage of your treatment. While the appliance may not be noticeable, you will almost immediately notice the effect the aligners have on your smile. The clear aligners are made of a thermoplastic material that has been designed for patient comfort and provides consistent pressure to your teeth so they will shift favorably.
Because you can easily remove your aligners, you don’t have to worry about cutting any of your favorite foods from your diet. While it’s important to keep your aligners in for at least 20-22 hours a day, you take them out to enjoy a nice meal without having to avoid the hard and sticky foods that would cause damage to braces. While working toward long-lasting results is an investment of your time and money, it doesn’t have to impact your life during the process dramatically.
As an added benefit, our office has perfected the Invisalign® process for our family of patients. We can offer you an accelerated treatment up to 30% faster than you will find anywhere else. You deserve to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted with a treatment that works for your schedule, and we are committed to making your orthodontic experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
How Will You Start My Treatment Plan?
Every treatment plan we create is customized to our patient’s specific needs and orthodontic goals, so we start the process by conducting a comprehensive evaluation where we will identify the areas that need attention. In addition, we will take a 3D image of your mouth and jaw so that we can accurately map out a series of aligners that will fit perfectly to every groove of your teeth for ultimate comfort. This 3D image will also allow us to project your desired results so that you can approve the plan and explain what your goals are for your treatment.
Once we figure out exactly how your smile needs to look for improved oral health and aesthetics, Dr. Romani will be able to map out a plan for your aligners that we will follow until you complete treatment. You will change into a new set of aligners every week that will be slightly adjusted to move your teeth closer and closer to the perfect position for your dream smile.
How Long Will My Treatment Last?
Every treatment plan is unique, and each of our patients completes treatment at the right pace to achieve their desired smile. If you have more extensive issues being addressed through Invisalign® treatment, it may take a little longer to perfect. That being said, many of our patients finish treatment within one to two years after getting their first set of aligners.
As long as you consistently wear your clear aligners and maintain your great oral health, our team will guide you through an accelerated treatment that is up to 30% faster than average.
How Much Will My Invisalign® Clear Aligners Cost?
The cost of Invisalign® treatment varies depending on the patient’s orthodontic goals and how long they will need to remain in their aligners. The more sets of aligners you need to finish treatment, the higher the cost. While we consider orthodontic treatment a necessary investment into your improved health and boosted confidence, we understand that it can sometimes be difficult to know where to start when budgeting for this expense.
This is why we have developed several flexible financing plans designed to help you manage the costs of Invisalign® so that you can work toward the smile you deserve without any roadblocks in your way. In addition to our own financing plans, we will work diligently with your insurance provider to ensure that you pay as few out-of-pocket costs as possible. We aim to provide high-quality care and services to every member of our communities, and we will work to find a plan that works for you.
How Do I Sanitize Invisalign®?
It’s easy to keep your aligners clean. You should continue to maintain your great oral health by brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing often. After you finish with your normal dental hygiene routine, take a few minutes to clean your aligners with a toothbrush and warm water. Make sure you scrub the inside and outside of your Invisalign® so that no harmful bacteria or food debris makes it back onto your freshly cleaned teeth. If you consistently clean your aligners, they will remain fresh and clear and you will glide through treatment to achieve your desired results without any hiccups.
