If you’re interested in getting Invisalign® or you’re considering it for your child, chances are you have some questions about the procedure. The dental professionals at Cibolo Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics are happy to answer questions before you get going on the treatment. We want to help you make smart, confident decisions about your family’s dental healthcare. Here are some of the questions we recommend bringing up with your dental team.
Will Invisalign be able to fix the concerns I have?
Invisalign can do many things, from fixing crowding to closing gaps to readjusting alignment of the top and bottom teeth. The thing is, how complex these adjustments are will depend on the unique case of the patient. When the misalignment is considered severe, traditional braces rather than Invisalign might be considered the best choice. We want our patients to have realistic expectations. At your initial consultation, ask the dentist whether Invisalign is right for your or your child’s specific smile needs.
How long will the Invisalign treatment last?
How long Invisalign treatment takes to straighten teeth varies from patient to patient. If more movement is required to get teeth to their perfect positions, it can understandably take longer. The average treatment time is 12 to 18 months. Before you give the green light on Invisalign treatment, it’s important to know how much of a time commitment you’re making.
How much will the treatment cost?
Generally speaking, Invisalign treatment can cost between $3,000 and $7,000. Where you fall in that range will depend upon your unique treatment plan and how much movement is required. Before you sign off on getting Invisalign, make sure you have an accurate cost estimate based on your specific dental needs. You don’t want to be caught off guard when it comes to the overall price of the procedure! You can also talk to our team about the financing options we offer to make orthodontic treatments more budget friendly.
