Invisalign® Clear Braces

Invisalign® Long Beach, CA

You’ve probably seen the TV ads for Invisalign® braces alternatives, but you may not know much about them and who they might benefit – or how effective they really are. The “clear aligners” as they’re officially known, are effective alternatives for traditional braces and work for adults, teens and older children mature enough to care for them properly.

Invisalign® trays help get to that beautiful, confident smile you’ve been waiting for with a more natural look than traditional metal braces – one of the main reasons folks choose Invisalign®.

What Are Invisalign® Clear Aligner Trays?

Invisalign® clear aligners are clear alignment trays used in the place of metal or ceramic braces for the purpose of straightening teeth. The trays are nearly invisible, making them a more natural looking option than other alignment correction appliances. They gently guide your teeth into the correct alignment just like braces do, in multiple stages.

Invisalign® trays are not permanent, but removable, making them easy to care for. This also means eating restrictions associated with traditional braces are not in place. They do need to be removed before eating or when drinking hot liquids. They are easy to care for and easy to use for those who wear them properly.

Who Should Consider Invisalign® Clear Braces?

Patients of all ages are eligible for Invisalign® aligners, if they’re eligible for braces. Invisalign® trays are especially popular with adults and working professionals – as Invisalign® clear aligners are nearly impossible for anyone to notice.

Invisalign® aligners are a popular choice for teens and adults, as well as children who are mature enough to take proper care of their oral health and not lose their Invisalign® trays. For parents concerned that their children wear the aligners properly, a discreet blue marker tracks the proper use of the aligners.

How Much Do Invisalign® Clear Braces Cost?

Many patients assume Invisalign® aligners will run significantly more expensive than metal braces. This assumption is wrong. In many cases, Invisalign® correction is similar in price to traditional or ceramic braces. Your exact needs and circumstances, however, will affect the costs.

Factors that play into cost include:

  • Type of misalignment
  • Age of wearer
  • Severity of misalignment
  • Other oral health factors

These aligners can be removed, which is a plus, but that also means that kids might be more prone to not wear them as much as prescribed. (They need to be worn approximately 22 hours per day.) Invisalign® clear aligners could also be lost or misplaced by absent-minded kids (or adults!). You need to be careful and not drink super hot drinks like coffee or tea with your Invisalign® aligners because the heat can warp the plastic and ruin the functionality.
