Invisalign “Clear” Braces for Adults and Teens
If you know that you need braces to straighten your teeth but you’re not excited about wearing a mouth full of metal, you should know that Invisalign is an exciting alternative to metal braces. In Sacramento, Midtown Dental Invisalign dentist Jenny Apekian offers this proven and innovative method that people are using to align their teeth. What’s exciting is that Invisalign braces are virtually “invisible,” so you almost no one will know you’re wearing braces.
Invisalign Aligners are Attractive, Comfortable & Convenient
Invisalign treatment uses removable and clear teeth aligners as opposed to metal brackets. The aligners are clear plastic and virtually invisible. Every four to six weeks, you receive a new aligner. Each aligner moves your teeth little by little until you reach the desired results. If Invisalign sounds like an attractive solution for you, Midtown Dental in Sacramento can give you sound advice and offer you this new and exciting treatment as an alternative to metal braces.
Faster Treatment Results with Invisalign Aligners
With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth in as little as three months. This is much faster than regular metal braces, for which treatment can typically last two to three years. The actual Invisalign treatment period, however, will largely depend on the severity of your alignment case. Success of Invisalign also depends on patient compliance, so the treatment period will vary according to how regularly the patient keeps the aligners in his or her mouth each day.
Use You Flexible Spending Account (FSA) for Invisalign Costs
The cost of Invisalign largely depends on the number of aligners the patient requires and the length of the treatment period. However, the cost of Invisalign can actually be more affordable than you may think. Many dental insurances provide allowances for Invisalign and you can apply your flexible spending account (FSA) toward Invisalign treatment. You can set aside up to $2,550 of your pretax dollars through your FSA and use those funds to help cover the cost of Invisalign treatment.
