At Stellar Smiles Ortho, we are in the business of smiles, and we strive to provide quality care and beautiful results to patients of all ages. For our adult patients looking for reliable braces with a more discreet appearance, Invisalign is the perfect appliance for your corrective treatment. This appliance has been engineered for patient comfort and has been proven to treat orthodontic issues big and small. In addition, Invisalign has gained popularity in recent years for the freedom it allows patients while being virtually invisible.

If you’ve been hesitating on starting treatment toward a happier and healthier smile because of the aesthetics of other appliances, today is the day to start your journey to your dream smile with the help of these amazing clear aligners.

Why Should I Get Invisalign as an Adult?

It’s a common misconception that orthodontics is meant for teenage patients. In reality, there are many adults who can benefit from corrective treatment, whether it be for aesthetic or health reasons. There are some orthodontic issues that appear after your mouth is fully formed or may have been caused by an accident you had as an adult. Either way, nothing is stopping you from taking charge of your health and appearance today by taking the first step toward your forever smile.

With Invisalign, you have the opportunity to enjoy the great results of braces with a virtually invisible appliance. These aligners are also easily removable, so you can take them out to eat your favorite foods, brush your teeth, take pictures, and more. You are never too old to get the smile you’ve always wanted, and our knowledgeable team and a skilled doctor will guide you along every step of the way to your desired results.

How Will You Start My Treatment Plan?

We begin each treatment plan with a free consultation during which we will identify your orthodontic needs and listen to your smile goals. Then, we will conduct a comprehensive exam and use the iTero Scanner to take images of your mouth and jaw. Using these images, we can digitally construct a model of your mouth that gives a better understanding of your oral health needs. We can also alter the model to show you what your smile will look like once you’ve completed treatment.

After you approve the proposed results, we will take the model and create a series of clear aligners designed to fit snugly over your teeth and gradually shift them into place. You will receive a new set of aligners every two weeks until the end of treatment that has been slightly altered to provide your teeth with consistent pressure.

How Long Will My Treatment Last?

We build treatment plans around every patient’s unique orthodontic needs and goals. This means that everyone’s experience in Invisalign is different and the amount of time they need to spend in aligners varies depending on the extent of their needs. While there is no one-size-fits-all treatment, many of our patients work through the Invisalign process within one to two years of getting their appliance. For a more exact timeline, you can come in for your first free consultation, and Dr. J or one of our other talented team members will give you insight into your orthodontic needs.

How Much Will My Invisalign Clear Aligners Cost?

The cost of clear aligners is closely tied to how many pairs of Invisalign you need to wear based on the extent of your orthodontic needs. While the price may vary, our team strives to deliver an easy and stress-free treatment experience, and this includes helping you budget for this transformative appliance. We’ve created flexible financing plans with our patients in mind so they can more easily plan for the costs of Invisalign. In addition to these plans, we work with most insurance providers to cover out-of-pocket costs that act as an investment into a lifetime of beautiful smiles. If you want to learn more about your financial options, call our office today, and one of our knowledgeable team members will be happy to assist you.

How Do I Sanitize Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment has gained popularity over recent years because of how comfortable and easy the aligners are for patients. This includes easy sanitation and cleaning so you can keep your appliance in good shape while maintaining your great oral health. To take care of your appliance, you should use a toothbrush and warm water to scrub away harmful bacteria that may be hiding on the surface. If you do this each time you take your aligners out to brush and floss your teeth, you will have a smooth and easy treatment process.
