Insights on Invisalign®

From Pike Smiles in Falls Church, VA

Braces may seem like a paradox: the desire for a flawless smile conflicts with the visibility and inconvenience of traditional braces. However, with Invisalign®, individuals can achieve alignment discreetly and comfortably.

Advantages of Invisalign®

Invisalign® offers several benefits:

Invisibility: Clear plastic aligners are nearly undetectable, allowing wearers to showcase their smiles confidently.
Removability: Aligners can be temporarily removed for activities like eating and brushing, providing convenience and comfort.

The Invisalign® Fitting Process

The fitting process involves:

  • Initial Assessment: Dr. Shyamsundar evaluates your teeth and creates a mold.
  • Custom Aligners: Orthodontic experts design multiple aligners to gradually shift teeth into alignment.
  • Wearing Schedule: Aligners are worn for about 22 hours per day, with periodic changes as teeth progress.

Financing Invisalign® Treatment

  • Cost: Invisalign® treatment typically ranges from $5,000 to $6,000.
  • Insurance Coverage: Some insurance plans may cover a portion of the cost.
  • Payment Options: Dental savings plans and accounts like FSAs and HSAs can help manage expenses.

Invisalign® provides a discreet and convenient solution for teeth alignment. Despite initial costs, various payment options are available to make treatment accessible. For personalized guidance on achieving a straighter smile, consult Pike Smiles in Falls Church, VA.
