Why Choose Fromuth & Langlois Dental of Manchester for Invisalign?

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gently shift teeth into a straighter and healthier position. Each pair is customized to represent a different stage of your realignment process. After you’ve worn your aligners for a set period of time, generally about 22 hours per day over the next two weeks, you can move on to the next pair in the series until you’ve worn every pair. We ask that you come to our office every six weeks or so in order to confirm that your teeth are shifting as planned.

Benefits of Choosing Invisalign

By choosing Invisalign to shift teeth, you can easily maintain many of your current dental habits and achieve a straighter smile in the process. For example, the clear aligners are removable, which means they can be taken out when they need to be cleaned and when practicing brushing and flossing. Furthermore, you can enjoy the same foods you did before beginning treatment. Treatment also takes just 6 to 12 months on average to complete.

Are You a Candidate for Invisalign?

If you have mild to moderate levels of misalignment to address and healthy gum tissue, you’re likely to be an eligible candidate for Invisalign. With it, we can remove a variety of dental issues, including crooked or rotated teeth, gaps, and overcrowding. Keep in mind that more serious forms of misalignment may need to be addressed by other forms of treatment. Our dentists will make sure to perform a detailed exam to confirm if Invisalign is the right treatment for you.

Understanding the Cost of Invisalign

Before making the final decision to get Invisalign in Manchester, you likely want to know how much your treatment will cost. Well, it’s impossible to provide a set price because the answer truly varies from patient to patient based on several factors. During your consultation, our team will examine your smile and identify the problem area(s). We’ll recommend a treatment plan and explain your financing options to help you manage the total cost.  

Factors that Affect the Cost of Invisalign

Every patient is unique when it comes to their Invisalign treatment, so the price you pay will be influenced by multiple factors, including:

  • The severity of your misalignment/overcrowding/gaps
  • The number of aligners you need to wear
  • Preliminary work before treatment can begin (i.e. restorative and periodontal treatments)
  • Your age
  • The overall length of your treatment (which can vary depending on how dedicated you stay to wearing the aligners

Invisalign vs. Smile Direct Club™: Which Costs More?

Patients on a budget may be tempted to choose a do-it-yourself clear aligner system like Smile Direct Club. It’s a popular solution because it typically costs under $2,000, while Invisalign runs anywhere between $3,000 and $8,000. Of course, it’s important to remember that DIY clear aligners come with little to no oversight from a dental professional.

With Smile Direct Club, you need to capture your own impressions of your teeth, which may or may not be accurate. As a result, you might have ill-fitting aligners that do more than good for your smile. Plenty of other things can go wrong throughout the treatment process, leading to serious issues that will need to be corrected by a professional anyway.

By choosing Invisalign in Manchester, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing your progress will be closely monitored throughout the course of treatment. Plus, your aligners are made from SmartTrack technology which allows for more predictable tooth movements. Overall, many patients find the quality service to be worth the extra cost.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Invisalign?

The good news is that most dental insurance plans offer coverage for orthodontics. You may find that your insurer is willing to cover a portion of your treatment, usually up to 50%. Of course, the exact percentage depends on your deductible and available yearly maximum. If you have one, you can also use your FSA account to help cover the cost. Our team is more than happy to help check your coverage with your insurance company.

Invisalign FAQs

Invisalign is a great teeth straightening option, but you want to be well informed to determine whether or not it is the best treatment for you. Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we are asked about Invisalign clear aligners. If your question isn’t listed below, give us a call or schedule a consultation, and we’d be happy to get the information you’re looking for.

What Does Invisalign Look Like?

Invisalign aligners are designed with clear plastic. While they are visible when outside of the mouth, they become difficult to detect once you are wearing them. With proper maintenance, Invisalign aligners can be kept stain-free and virtually invisible! Unlike traditional braces, there are no metal brackets and wires involved. In some cases, patients need attachments, buttons, or elastics to help with the alignment process, but other than that, no one will even be able to tell that you’re wearing them!

Does Invisalign Hurt?

Invisalign is not a painful process, and it is considered to be more comfortable than traditional braces because there are no sharp brackets or wires involved. When you first get your aligners, there will be a period of adjustment. You might experience some soreness or discomfort, but it should go away as you become more accustomed to them. Pressure is also common whenever you switch to a new set of aligners. Fortunately, any discomfort can be managed with a cold compress and over-the-counter pain relievers.

Is Invisalign Cheaper than Braces?

The cost of both traditional braces and Invisalign varies significantly based on your individual smile. There are numerous factors that contribute to the overall total. Most of the time, Invisalign costs about the same as tradition braces, but variables like oral health, commitment to the treatment plan, and the severity of your misalignment issues will influence the overall price. Many dental insurance plans offer at least partial coverage for Invisalign, so it’s important that you check with your provider ahead of time so you know what to expect.

How Is Invisalign Made?

The Invisalign process requires a series of clear aligners that are made from smooth plastic. The whole set of aligners are manufactured by an advanced 3D printing process before getting shipped to the practice. The aligners are made with the digital impressions that we provide and they usually take about 3-4 weeks to fabricate. We will give you a call as soon as they are ready!

Who Is a Candidate for Invisalign?

During your initial consultation, we’ll be looking for a few key factors to see if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. Firstly, Invisalign isn’t recommended for children under the age of 13. However, there is no upper age limit! Additionally, a good candidate for Invisalign will be committed enough to their treatment to wear their aligners for 20-22 hours a day. More forgetful teens may be better suited for non-removable orthodontics. Finally, the severity of your orthodontic issue will determine if Invisalign is right for you. While severe cases are still best treated with traditional braces, Invisalign can help most patients overcome mild to moderate orthodontic issues.
