The cost of Invisalign treatment depends on the type of Invisalign or any underlying healthcare problems.
How fast do teeth move with Invisalign?
It can take anywhere between 12 and 18 months for your tooth straightening treatment with Invisalign to be completed.
Better than fixed or traditional braces, in this case, Invisalign uses a greater force to pull teeth into the correct position in half the time of normal braces.
You will be given numbered aligners that are to be worn sequentially.
They move the teeth very slowly so you will be able to see the gradual movement over time as your teeth are correctly aligned.
Special activators integrated into the treatment trays apply small forces to the teeth. They are applied gradually over a period of time allowing the teeth to move consecutively and in an orderly fashion.
The treatment components allow the dentist to have more control so that you will achieve an optimal end result.
Most common teeth alignment and positional issues can be treated with Invisalign. Including:
- Crooked and overcrowded teeth
There is a spectrum of possible treatment ranging from simple movements to more complex treatment plans.
Your dentist will advise where you fall in this spectrum and help advise as to the best type of aligners for you.
Before proceeding with a tooth straightening system, our consultants will assess and examine the mouth for any oral health threats or risks. These include any disorders like tooth decay, gum disease and infections.
