Do you want to straighten your teeth, but don’t like the idea of metal braces? With Invisalign® in Fairfax, our dentists have helped many patients achieve the smile they’ve always wanted without noticeable metal braces.

How Does Invisalign Move Teeth?

With Invisalign treatment, you’ll wear a series of custom-fit, transparent aligner trays over your teeth, which gently move your teeth into a more optimal position over time. As your teeth gradually shift throughout the treatment process, you’ll wear a new set of aligners every two weeks.

What Is My Expected Invisalign Cost?

Compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign can be very comparable. As you might expect, your final Invisalign cost depends on your unique needs, such as how long it will take to straighten your teeth and the complexity of your alignment issues. Our dentists can outline your treatment plan and provide an estimate of your expected costs during your appointment. Please contact us for more information about affordable payment plans and low-interest financing options.

How Long Does Invisalign Take to Work?

How long you wear the Invisalign aligners depends on the complexity of your orthodontic problems. For most adults, the average Invisalign treatment ranges from 12-18 months. For teens, treatment time will vary. Once you have achieved your desired results, you may need to wear Invisalign retainers to maintain your results.

Invisalign Dentists

A licensed general dentist or orthodontist who has completed specific training with the aligner tray system can provide treatment with Invisalign. Our Invisalign dentists have the experience needed to help you obtain the best possible results for the smile you’ve always wanted.

What’s the Difference Between Invisalign vs Braces?

Deciding between Invisalign vs braces isn’t an easy choice. Although appearance is a strong factor for many, effective treatment should be even more important. If you need a mild-to-moderate correction for crooked or misaligned teeth or minor crowding or spacing issues, Invisalign has proven to be just as effective as traditional braces. However, if you need a more complex correction, traditional braces will likely be the best treatment option. Our dentists can help you make the right decision when considering Invisalign vs braces. Contact us to make an appointment.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign Compared to Braces?

Compared to metal braces, Invisalign offers many benefits. Consider the following advantages of Invisalign:

  • You’ll only have to visit our dentist office about every four to six weeks.
  • You can eat and drink anything you want.
  • Easier brushing and flossing
  • Nearly invisible aligners help you smile confidently.
  • The trays can be removed at any time.
  • There are no metal wires or brackets to irritate your gums.

Can I Get Invisalign?

While many patients have had a successful outcome with Invisalign, there are some people who are not good candidates for orthodontic aligner trays. Invisalign isn’t recommended for children since their mouths and jaws are still in the early stages of development. Additionally, patients with complex orthodontic issues, such as severe crowding, spacing, or misalignment issues, may also not be good candidates for Invisalign. To learn more about Invisalign, and to determine if you’re an ideal candidate, schedule an appointment today with our Invisalign dentists.

Does Insurance Cover Invisalign?

Orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign cost, is covered by most insurance companies. We encourage you to call our dental office or your insurance provider to learn more about the extent of your Invisalign insurance.

Will Invisalign Affect Your Lifestyle?

With Invisalign in Fairfax, it’s very easy to fit treatment into your lifestyle. You can still enjoy your favorite food and drinks because you remove the aligner trays every time you eat. Smoking or chewing tobacco may discolor the trays, and chewing gum should also be avoided when you’re wearing the aligners. You can easily clean the trays by brushing them with toothpaste and rinsing them with water, or you can clean the aligners with the manufacturer’s cleaning system, which is available at our office.
