Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

When considering orthodontic treatment, the decision between Invisalign and traditional braces is a common dilemma for many patients. Both options aim to achieve the same goal – a beautiful, straight smile – yet they do so through distinctly different methods and experiences.

The Advantages of Invisalign Aligners

  • Aesthetics: Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually invisible, making them a discreet option for aligning your teeth without the visibility of metal brackets.
  • Comfort: With smooth, plastic aligners, Invisalign offers a more comfortable fit than braces, which can irritate cheeks and gums with wires and rubber bands.
  • Convenience: Invisalign clear aligners are removable, allowing for easier cleaning, eating, and flossing without the restrictions often associated with traditional braces.

Why Some Might Choose Traditional Braces

  • Complex Cases: For more complex dental issues, traditional braces might offer the orthodontist more control over tooth movements.
  • Cost: In some instances, braces can be a more cost-effective solution depending on the treatment’s specifics and insurance coverage.

At Kelleher Orthodontics, we’re committed to providing you with all the information you need to make an informed decision. Dr. Kelleher and our team will assess your specific needs and recommend the treatment plan that best suits your lifestyle and dental goals.

The Treatment Process

Your journey to a perfect smile begins with a detailed consultation at Kelleher Orthodontics, where our dedicated team, led by renowned dentist Dr. Kelleher, will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your teeth and mouth. We utilize advanced imaging systems to create a digital map of your mouth, which aids in designing your custom aligner treatment.

Insurance and Cost Considerations

We believe everyone deserves a beautiful smile, which is why we strive to make Invisalign accessible to all our patients. Kelleher Orthodontics works with numerous insurance providers and offers various financing options to accommodate your budget. The cost of your Invisalign treatment will depend on the complexity of your tooth movements and the length of your treatment plan, but we’re here to guide you through every step and ensure there are no surprises.

I’m older – Can I still get Invisalign?

You are never too old to achieve the gorgeous smile you deserve

Invisalign does not have a maximum age. Many of the patients who seek Invisalign’s cosmetic and dental advantages are people ages 60 and older. We love seeing our elderly patients have great smiles. Straight teeth are beneficial for all ages. Invisalign is a treatment that straightens and fills gaps in the mouth. Straight teeth are easy to clean and maintain.

Conditions corrected with Invisalign treatment

  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Some bite issues

Orthodontic treatment by wearing Invisalign aligners can fix many adults’ cosmetic issues, but not all. With a goal of straight teeth and a beautiful smile, sometimes clear aligners are not enough. In those situations, conventional braces may be required.

Why choose Kelleher Orthodontics for your Invisalign treatment?

  • Expertise: Our team is trained in the latest aligner technology and treatment techniques.
  • Customization: We offer personalized treatment plans tailored to meet the unique needs of our patients.
  • Comfort: Invisalign aligners are designed to fit snugly over your teeth, minimizing discomfort and irritation.
  • Convenience: With Invisalign’s removable aligners, maintaining your dental hygiene and enjoying your favorite foods has never been easier.

Invisalign FAQs

Embarking on your Invisalign journey comes with many questions. Here are some frequently asked questions to help you understand the process and what to expect.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

The duration of your Invisalign treatment can vary depending on the complexity of your case and how consistently you wear your aligners. On average, treatment lasts between 12 to 18 months, but you may start to see results in a matter of weeks.

Is Invisalign treatment painful?

Invisalign aligners are designed for comfort. While you may experience some pressure and mild discomfort when you start wearing a new set of aligners, this sensation is a sign that your treatment is working as your teeth gently shift into their correct positions.

Can I eat and drink with my aligners in?

For the best results, it’s recommended to remove your aligners when eating or drinking anything other than water. This prevents staining of the aligners and ensures that food doesn’t get trapped, which could lead to dental issues.

How often do I need to wear my aligners?

For optimal results, you should wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. Consistent wear is key to achieving the desired outcome within the projected treatment timeline.

A Message from Dr. Kelleher

Hi, this is Dr. Kelleher. If you are an adult who had braces as a teen, we can usually fine-tune your smile with aligners – at a fraction of the time and expense compared to your never having had treatment. This is because, most likely, you already had your bite corrected as a teen, with only a moderate relapse of your front teeth!

I am passionate about changing smiles and lives. Your primary concerns are really important to us and the cornerstone of great results. We see many adults and the results are fabulous! I love seeing the newfound confidence that emerges during your care. There are few things as gratifying for me as to help impact your smile, confidence, and life!

As with younger patients, aligners involve less appointment time. We can monitor your progress, virtually by phone images for many of your appointments. This frees up your schedule in not having to always come into the office. Treatment times tend to be faster and more predictable with aligners because the automation of consistent plastic force is gentler and more efficient than braces often allow. By finishing your treatment with higher tech and less time in our office, it financially prioritizes your schedule – not ours.

We’re recognized as a top Invisalign Provider in Folsom & Davis, CA. We will make sure that your treatment fits your lifestyle and budget and respects your time. Thanks so much for reading this and I look forward to welcoming you into our Invisalign family.
