A few weeks ago, I attended a Mini Bloggy Boot Camp event in Philadelphia sponsored by Invisalign. In addition to learning about ways to better our blogging skills, we learned all about Invisalign from an experienced orthodontist, as well as from actual Invisalign Teen patients. The presentation was impressive, to say the least!
Today’s braces are more sophisticated than ever. Gone are the days of “wrap around” metal brackets, bonded brackets, and big clunky head and neck gears. As technology enhances our daily lives, it also continues to advance the science of orthodontics.
Among the new advances in orthodontia, removable aligners like Invisalign & Invisalign Teen are fast becoming a popular choice. The system uses a series of clear aligners made of lightweight plastic that sit smoothly on the teeth allowing for a more comfortable fit and they work as effectively as traditional metal braces.
I wore braces growing up (for 5 years), and it wasn’t fun at all. I had to give up some of my favorite foods (popcorn, corn on the cob, gum, etc). The jagged metal edges of the braces would dig into my cheeks. And brushing my teeth wasn’t easy with braces, which led to lots of cavities and stuff when I got them off.
Invisalign works much the same as braces, but with some notable benefits. You can eat whatever you want. You can brush and floss your teeth normally. The smooth plastic aligners don’t irritate your cheeks and gums. And of course, the aesthetic benefits!
Every patient’s needs are different, and there are many factors that determine the cost of Invisalign treatment. But in most cases, you’ll find that the cost of braces is comparable to the cost of Invisalign. Given the many benefits of Invisalign, as well as the fact that the system is covered by most dental insurance plans and has affordable financing options available, why would you settle for anything else?
