Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that allows patients to straighten their teeth with invisible aligners rather than the metal brackets and wires typically used in conventional braces. This method is more discreet yet effective at realigning teeth when patients comply with treatments. Both adults and teenagers can use Invisalign to improve their smile.
Why should I choose Invisalign?
Invisalign provides a number of amazing benefits over traditional orthodontics. Invisalign is not only clear, but removable. This allows patients to enjoy eating and drinking whatever they want while undergoing treatment. Brushing and flossing is much easier, which facilitates good oral health during treatment. Braces tend to trap food particles and plaque which can cause cavities and reduce overall oral health. Since Invisalign aligner trays don’t use any metal, they are comfortable and easy to wear. The entire treatment requires fewer visits to the dentist since adjustments are not necessary, and the virtual treatment plan makes it easy for patients to visualize the final results.

How does Invisalign work?
Patients are given a numbered series of aligner trays that are to be worn for two weeks each before switching to the next clear aligner in the series. Every week, the teeth will slowly move toward their final positions. Visits are made with Dr. Kotecha and her associates about every six weeks to ensure that treatment is progressing as expected, and many patients can have a new smile in approximately one year. The number of trays in a patient’s series varies as each dental situation is unique.
How much does Invisalign cost?
There are many variables that are used to determine the final cost of treatment. Every smile is unique and requires customized treatment. However, Invisalign is often comparable in price to traditional orthodontics, and Dr. Kotecha and her associates offer payment plans and financial options to make it easier for patients to afford treatment. With low or no down payment options available, patients can discuss the financial plan that works best for their budget. Most patients pay less each month for Invisalign than they do for their monthly cellular phone plan. Some patients have dental insurance that may cover the cost of Invisalign orthodontic treatments, or at least a portion of the final cost. The team at Dentistry On 10 will discuss with patients whether or not their dental insurance provides coverage for orthodontics.
