Invisalign is custom-built trays to straighten your teeth and are an alternative to braces. Invisalign was originally used in the 80’s as retainers but soon after were introduced as an effective way to move teeth back into alignment as braces do. Invisalign can treat a multitude of different cases, such as:
- Crowding – When teeth overlap due to a small jaw.
- Overbites – When your upper jaw protrudes out further of your lower jaw.
- Underbites – When your lower jaw protrudes further out than your upper jaw.
- Spacing – When there are large or small gaps between your teeth.

Depending on your treatment plan that your Invisalign dentist has given you, you will receive a series of aligners throughout the course of your treatment. Clear Aligners are most often times worn for 22 hours a day for the fastest results and must be removed when eating or drinking anything.
Based on the severity of your case, most clear aligner treatment plans take 6-12 months but can be longer if you are not wearing the aligners for a proper amount of time or if there are other complications. Invisalign Dentist in OC determined that clear aligners have a significantly quicker treatment plan compared to braces when in severe cases can be worn for years at a time. Clear aligners are much more comfortable than braces and pose fewer risks to your gums and teeth while providing a beautiful smile.
How much does Invisalign Cost?
Invisalign cost is hard to determine without a full set of X-rays, impressions trays, and a treatment plan. While our cost for clear aligners is significantly lower than most Invisalign dentist offices in the area without a treatment plan it is hard to give exact pricing of the overall Invisalign cost.
