Smile healthy

It’s easy to see that a straight, well-aligned smile looks great. But that kind of smile often means it’s also a healthy smile. So put yourself in a healthy state of mind, and take a look at the many benefits of a properly aligned smile.

Healthier gums

Signs of periodontal disease, such as swollen gums and redness, can surface due to teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced. Clinical studies have shown that when teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit tighter around the teeth, which can lead to better periodontal health.¹ Since the Invisalign system’s greatest advantage is its ability to align teeth, your gum health may improve after Invisalign treatment.² And since you can brush and floss normally with Invisalign, unlike with traditional braces, you can more easily prevent tooth decay and related periodontal disease.

Easier cleanings

One of the Invisalign system’s best qualities is that it uses no metal bands, brackets, or wires that may trap food and plaque like traditional braces do. And since the removable nature of Invisalign allows you to maintain good oral hygiene habits, you may also reduce chances of plaque buildup, tooth decay, and periodontal disease.

Improved chewing and speech

When you leave incorrectly positioned teeth and jaws untreated, it can lead to speech difficulties and uncomfortable chewing issues. Invisalign treatment can improve both of these problems by giving you better-aligned teeth and jaws.

Maintain comfort and tooth structure

Misaligned teeth and jaws can result in abnormal stress. This can cause painful trauma to supporting bone and jaw joints. These issues can also cause abnormal wear on your teeth, which can trigger continued problems in the future.

Your custom-made smile program

At Your LifeSmiles, we offer complimentary consultations with one of our experienced Invisalign dentists. During that consultation, you and the doctor will discuss the options to treat your particular case. Once the doctor confirms that your case can be corrected with the Invisalign system, we will write a detailed treatment plan that determines how each of your aligners will change throughout your program. When you begin treatment, you’ll wear each set of aligners in approximately two-week increments. The aligners gently move your teeth into position, and at the end of each two-week period, you “graduate” to the next set of custom aligners.

As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will begin moving, little by little. And you don’t have to wait until you complete treatment to see your smile change—you may start seeing positive changes early in the process. You will have occasional checkups with the doctor—often as little as once every six weeks—in order to gauge your progress. And at the end of your treatment, you’ll be showing off a smile you never knew you’d have before you had Invisalign.

Before you schedule your consultation with our Invisalign providers, it’s a good idea to take the self-assessment to figure out if the Invisalign system is for you. Then take the results with you to your initial consultation.

Q&A- Invisalign

Your lifestyle. Your schedule.

So how long will it take to finish your treatment? For most of our patients, treatment time is just under one year. Of course, your total treatment time depends on your particular situation, so it’s important to speak with our doctors about how your situation and goals fit into an Invisalign treatment program.

You’re in control of your treatment’s success. You can take the aligners out to eat, drink, and brush your teeth. But the more you wear your aligners, the better. You’re on your way to the smile you’ve always dreamed of!

How much does Invisalign cost?

We know cost is a big question for anyone considering orthodontic work. Similar to other medical treatments, only your doctor can determine the cost based on your specific needs. Other factors could include what you want corrected or the difficulty of your case, how long you are in treatment, where you live, your orthodontic insurance coverage, and additional factors determined by the dentist. In most cases, Invisalign treatment is comparable to the cost of traditional braces.

What about insurance?

Many dental insurance plans will cover Invisalign just as they would cover other orthodontic treatments like braces. We will contact your insurance provider to determine the extent of coverage for your treatment.

What about payment plans?

Through our alliance with ChaseHealthAdvance and Care Credit, we offer affordable payment plans with no money down. ChaseHealthAdvance and Care Credit make it easier than ever to afford the orthodontic care families need to give everyone a special smile.

Take advantage of their plans with no down payment required and no interest financing.  Learn more.

What about FSAs?

Many companies offer their employees Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs). An FSA allows you to set aside a portion of your paychecks in order to pay for qualified medical expenses.

The money you elect to contribute is deducted from your pay and transferred directly into your FSA, and therefore, is not subject to payroll taxes. After incurring eligible medical costs, you can then submit your receipt for reimbursement from your FSA.

Since Invisalign can fall under orthodontic treatment, these costs can qualify for FSA reimbursement. If your company offers FSA and you know you’d like to treat yourself to Invisalign, plan ahead and consult your benefits department. When it comes time to enroll in your program, you can submit the appropriate amount for your Invisalign treatment and save money while doing it, since it’s a pre-tax contribution. It’s an easy and convenient way to get the smile you want.
