Is Invisalign Worth It?

Why you should choose Invisalign from your dentists in Naples, FL.

If you are considering orthodontic treatment, you may be wondering if Invisalign is worth it. The short answer is YES! That’s because Invisalign is the easiest, most comfortable, most discreet way to achieve a straight smile.

Drs. Richard and Maria Linden at Linden Dental in Naples, FL, offer comprehensive dental care, including Invisalign, to give you an outstanding smile.

So, what’s so great about Invisalign? The fact is, Invisalign is different from conventional brackets and wires, what we call braces. Invisalign uses clear plastic appliances, called aligners, that you can remove.

Let’s look at some of the benefits of Invisalign. Invisalign is:

Comfortable, because the aligners have a smooth surface, with no sharp areas to hurt your soft tissue

Discreet, because the aligners are clear plastic, so your friends and family members won’t notice them

Healthy, because you can remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth normally, without using cumbersome tools

Convenient, because you can remove the aligners to enjoy eating the foods you love

This is how Invisalign works:

  • You receive your first set of aligners, which you wear for 2 weeks
  • You move on to your next set of aligners, which you also wear for 2 weeks
  • You switch to a new set of aligners every 2 weeks until treatment is complete
  • You will visit your dentist every few weeks to check on your progress

One of the greatest advantages of Invisalign is how fast you can have a straight smile. The average completion time is only 9 to 15 months. Imagine having a new smile in just a few months!

Invisalign can correct many of the same issues as conventional braces, including if you have:

  • An overbite or underbite
  • A crossbite or open bite
  • Crowded or rotated teeth
  • Gaps or uneven spacing
