Modern orthodontics has evolved to allow adults and children alike the opportunity to align and straighten their smile while avoiding traditional metal braces. While there are a few options for clear teeth aligners, Beyond Smiles Dental Care in Fort Worth, TX offer the popular Invisalign teeth straightening system. Invisalign works by straightening the teeth over time through the use of custom-made aligning trays worn throughout the majority of the day. Traditional metal braces can sometimes cause minor discomfort while Invisalign causes no interruption to a patient's daily eating, drinking, or sleeping routines. Give us a call today to set up your first consultation with board-certified dentist, Dr. Edwina Evangelista, to discuss the benefits of Invisalign.
What to Expect
To be fitted for Invisalign, Dr. E will take photos, digital X-rays, and make impressions of the patient’s teeth. From these, a set of clear, plastic, customized aligners will be created to fit the patient’s mouth. The aligners are part of a treatment plan that will make gradual changes and adjustments to the teeth. A patient wears the aligners for a predetermined amount of time before moving onto the next aligner. Conveniently, aligners are easily removable which is ideal for eating, brushing, and flossing.
Dr. Evangelista will determine how long a patient needs to wear Invisalign depending on the starting condition of the patient’s teeth. New aligners will be created about every 2 weeks or as needed to incrementally adjust the patient’s teeth. Throughout the process, the patient will have regular check-ups with the dentist to confirm the patient’s progress. Most patients achieve full results in 1 – 2 years.
The price of Invisalign is dependent upon the patient’s condition, with more severe cases costing more. For less serious cases, there’s Invisalign Express which is $2,500 to $3,500. More complex cases can cost anywhere from $4,000 to $5,500. Our front office will help determine the patients options for the payment of their procedures.
