Invisalign teeth straightening treatments

If you’re looking for a subtle way to straighten teeth so you get the smile you’ve always wanted in as little as 12 to 18 months, you may be a good candidate for Invisalign! Invisalign, a system consisting of new clear aligners every two weeks that gently straighten teeth over time, is one of our most popular orthodontic treatments at Edgewater Dental Arts. To help you decide whether Invisalign is right for you, you should consider your oral health history, your goals, and your budget.

Oral Health History

Invisalign is a versatile orthodontic treatment that can be adapted to fit many patients. However, not everyone is a good candidate for Invisalign. Invisalign can treat gaps, overcrowding, bite misalignment, and other issues. More severe alignment or crowding issues may respond better to other types of orthodontic treatment. During your initial consultation with Dr. Cutting, he will examine your mouth and oral health history to help you decide which orthodontic treatment is best for you.

Your Goals

Before choosing an orthodontic treatment, you should consider your goals for treatment. Yes, you want a straighter smile. But, do you want the most affordable treatment? The quickest treatment? The most low-maintenance treatment? The treatment with least disruption to your appearance? Having a clear understanding of your goals can help you decide on the right fit.

Your Budget

Orthodontic treatments vary quite a bit in pricing. Traditional metal braces are typically the more affordable option, while Invisalign is a pricier option. During your initial consultation, we will go over different pricing options so you have all the information you need to make an informed decision.

Orthodontic treatment can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Our patients report that after treatment, they feel more confident than ever! Don’t waste another day hiding your smile, call us to schedule your orthodontic treatment consultation!
