In the past, metal braces were the primary method that dentists and orthodontists used to straighten teeth. Unfortunately, many modern patients dislike the idea of traditional brackets and wires staying in their mouth for months on end. That is why we proudly offer an alternative: Invisalign® in Lebanon. This convenient and discreet clear aligner system may be the best way for you to bring your teeth into proper alignment without having to face the hassles of traditional braces.
Instead of using brackets and wires to straighten teeth, Invisalign® uses a series of custom-made clear aligners. You wear each aligner for 20 – 22 hours each day for about two weeks before progressing to the next. As you work your way through all of your aligners, your teeth gradually shift into their proper positions.
At your first Invisalign® consultation, we evaluate your candidacy for the treatment and take some images and impressions of your teeth. After Invisalign® fabricates your aligners and sends them back to us, you can begin wearing them. You must visit your dentist in Lebanon periodically throughout your treatment for brief checkups so we can monitor your progress. These appointments usually last just a few minutes.
Invisalign® is able to correct most cases of mild to moderate dental misalignment. It can straighten teeth, relieve overcrowding, close gaps, and promote a harmonious bite.
If you have too many teeth, or your teeth are too close together, you face an increased risk of cavities and other dental problems. Invisalign® may be able to help by shifting your teeth so they each have the space they need to thrive.
Large gaps between teeth can be unsightly, and they may leave your gums vulnerable. Invisalign® can gradually close gaps, improving both the look of your smile and your oral function.
Overbite, underbite, and crossbite are a few examples of the bite problems that Invisalign® is often able to address. The aligners may work along with other orthodontic devices to achieve the best possible results.
Some of the top benefits of Invisalign® include:
The cost of your treatment depends on how many aligners you need, whether you require any special accessories, and other factors. We strive to provide accurate estimates for our patients, and we offer FREE consultations to help you get started with treatment. Most patients qualify for low-interest financing. Although Invisalign® costs more on average than traditional braces, the convenience and discretion it offers make it a worthwhile purchase!
