Considering Invisalign? 5 Questions to Ask Your Orthodontist
At Docbraces Truro and Area Orthodontics, we’re proud providers of one of today’s most popular orthodontic treatments: Invisalign. In fact, we’re Invisalign Elite Providers! You don’t need to wonder why Invisalign has become such a popular treatment: Invisalign doesn’t use brackets and wires like traditional braces, making it (as the name suggests), virtually invisible. The Invisalign system consists of a series of clear aligners that are virtually invisible when worn, and they’re easy to pop in and out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing – so no one has to know you’re straightening your teeth! You can still eat your favourite foods, and maintaining oral hygiene is as easy as ever.
If you’re considering Invisalign for your orthodontic treatment or just want to learn more, here are 5 great (and frequently asked) questions to ask Dr. Donald Johnston at your appointment.
Q: My Teeth Are Straight! Why Do I Need Orthodontic Treatment?
While your teeth may look straight to you, the truth is, orthodontic conditions are about more than just looks. In many cases, teeth may appear straight, but the jaws are misaligned – which can cause huge problems later in life. In others, your teeth may seem straight now, but a future condition runs the risk of pushing them out of alignment. In any case, an orthodontic evaluation is the only way to be sure if you require Orthodontic treatment or not.
Q: What Types of Orthodontic Cases Can Invisalign Treat?
This is an excellent question – and we have great news! While Invisalign used to be relegated to only minor issues, advancements in the technology now allow it to treat most orthodontic conditions. Even for what seem like more difficult to treat conditions, Invisalign may be a viable option. Coming in for a FREE consultation with Dr. Donald Johnston is a great way to find out whether or not Invisalign is right for you!
Q: How Long Will Invisalign Take?
This question varies hugely from patient to patient, and Dr. Johnston will only be able to answer it after your consultation. While your treatment time will depend on the complexity of your case, you can expect treatment to last anywhere from 6 months to 24 months.
Q: I’m an Adult. Can I Still Get Invisalign?
Absolutely! Invisalign is incredibly popular among adult patients because it has a smaller impact on day-to-day life, making it easier to go through the routine of work and life during treatment. No matter what age you are, Invisalign may be the perfect option for treatment.
Q: Does Invisalign Cost More Than Braces?
We have even more good news: Invisalign treatment can be quite comparable to the cost of traditional braces! Of course, treatment cost varies depending on your specific case, so we always encourage you to come in for a FREE consultation with Dr. Donald Johnston to get an idea of cost. At Docbraces Truro and Area Orthodontics, we offer interest-free, low monthly payments, and we’ll work with you to make Orthodontic treatment affordable for your budget.
