Invisalign® for a Picture Perfect Smile

Linden NJ dentistIf you are an adult who has braces,you know the experience can be just as traumatizing as for a youngster.

Since adults generally take more care of their appearance (hence the desire to fix their teeth), the look of metal braces can actually prevent smiling – a social necessity!

That’s why Invisalign® was developed. Not really braces at all, Invisalign is a system using small trays that have been custom-designed to the contours of your mouth to straighten your teeth much like braces do, while remaining invisible and easy to remove.

When you place an Invisalign® aligner in your mouth, it immediately goes to work straightening your teeth…and you feel it. But if you have a presentation, a big date, or even a meal, you can easily remove it and enjoy these activities with your teeth exposed.

How Does the Price of Invisalign Compare?

As far as price goes, a standard orthodontic procedure costs somewhere between $3,000 and $8,500, depending on what you want done and what needs to be done. The costs of Invisalign® vary and are determined by the individual dentists themselves. There are many factors that determine pricing. The general range is around $3000 – $8000. The way to get a price based on your own personal case is to make an appointment with a dentist or orthodontist certified by Invisalign®.

How Long Does it Take?

This of course brings us to the time factor. Many people do not like the thought of braces because they must be worn for several years. The Invisalign® system is so radical that most people only need to use it for six months. However, this short time period may compromise some long-term benefits associated with regular braces.

The choice is up to you. A consultation with your dentist will give you a better idea of whether you are a candidate for Invisalign as well as some price guidelines to help you make this important decision.
