Invisalign & Clear Aligners in Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor
Everyone wants straight teeth, but most of us don’t want unsightly metal braces.
Fortunately, you no longer have to compromise. In the past, Invisalign and clear aligners were cost-prohibitive for many and were reserved only for a select number of cases because the technology wasn’t advanced enough to correct crossbites and pronounced over and underbites. In recent years, Invisalign & clear aligners have become an effective, affordable solution to straighten your smile.
How Does It Work?
Invisalign and other clear aligners look like a mouth guard that you wear over your teeth. It’s completely invisible and thin enough that it won’t usually affect your speech. In addition to being discreet, these clear aligners also speed up the process of straightening your teeth.
Getting an Invisalign aligner is a painless process. The thin plastic aligner moves your teeth by applying gradual but constant pressure to move them into the proper position. It may take a few days to get used to, but once you’re accustomed to wearing them, don’t be surprised if you forget you have them entirely. Just don’t forget to take them out for eating and drinking!
Unlike braces, you can remove your Invisalign aligner for important events like job interviews, playing instruments, sporting events and more. As long as you wear them for at least 20 to 22 hours per day, you’ll still get the full effects of treatment.
Is it Safe?
Invisalign is completely safe and the materials used in your aligner are BPA-free. There’s also no trace of latex, parabens, phthalates or epoxy. The technology was developed in 1997 and received FDA approval in 1998.
Is Invisalign Expensive?
Clear aligners are similarly priced to braces. Further, the cost may be fully or partially covered under your insurance plan. Some patients opt to use an FSA or payment plan as well.
