What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment is a custom set of clear plastic trays used to straighten crooked teeth, close gaps, and adjust overbites, without the metal brackets and wires associated with braces. There is no wiring involved, which can irritate the mouth, and you can conveniently remove and replace them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Since the plastic aligners used for Invisalign are clear, most people will be unable to see them, which makes Invisalign one of the most popular orthodontic solutions available today.
Not only is Invisalign less noticeable than braces but also typically moves teeth more quickly than traditional braces. To carefully adjust your teeth with ease, your aligner trays will be changed approximately every two weeks. Each time a new aligner tray is custom-fitted to your mouth, adjustments are being made to best suit your smile. A perfect smile means more than just looking good.
Keeping your teeth properly aligned is also better for your long-term oral health. Bonita Beach Dental is happy to provide Invisalign to the residents of the Bonita Springs, FL area. Contact us or call (239) 947-5858 today for a free consultation!
How Much Is Invisalign?
Everyone has a unique smile, and because of this, there are a few factors that can affect the cost of Invisalign. Factors like the alignment of your teeth and how many aligners you will need throughout treatment can change the length of your Invisalign treatment. The longer the treatment takes, the more supplies and amount of visits are required, which can lead to higher costs. On average, Invisalign can cost anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000. A consultation with your dentist is recommended so you can discuss your treatment time and insurance coverage options.
How Long Does Invisalign Take?
On average, a patient’s Invisalign treatment time is about 3-6 months but can reach anywhere up to two years. Throughout the treatment, you will be asked to periodically return to the dentist’s office for check-ups and adjustments. These follow-up appointments allow your dentist to make sure your teeth are progressing as expected.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces
Invisalign offers many distinct advantages over conventional metal braces. Even though Invisalign can cost slightly more than traditional braces, in the end, it is worth the price. Other than cost, one significant difference between Invisalign and braces is that Invisalign is removable which makes daily activities and cleaning much easier. Not only are they invisible, removable, and more comfortable than braces, but they also pose fewer risks to gums and teeth. In addition, there are no broken brackets and wires that can cut the mouth. Another difference to consider when choosing Invisalign or braces are the shorter in-office visits to the dentist. An Invisalign adjustment usually will take on average 30 minutes.
