Why Choose Invisalign® in Newport Beach

The smile can say a lot about a person. It is the first impression patients make to others. When Dr. Spath consults with patients regarding their smile, he often wants to learn what they want their smile to convey. In many responses, patients what a smile they can be proud of and that has a positive message. Patients who have been considering correcting their smile with braces may be uneasy about the idea of covering their teeth with metal brackets and wires, but are excited to learn about an alternative called Invisalign. Invisalign is a “clear” alternative to conventional braces and can provide patients with a more beautiful smile—even throughout treatment.

What is Invisalign®

Invisalign is great because it is discreet while being effective. These trays are worn by teenagers or adults day and night to gently reposition the teeth. Others will not even know patients are wearing the trays because they are practically invisible. Patients find Invisalign to be a very comfortable treatment, while also aesthetic. The only time patients remove their Invisalign trays is to care for their smile or eat. Compliance is important to see the desired results. Many patients want to know how long they will be using Invisalign. This varies. The process can take six months or longer depending on the severity of the misalignment and the compliance. Dr. Spath can give a general estimate during the initial consultation appointment based on each patient’s individual situation. To realign the smile, Invisalign uses clear plastic trays that gently reposition the teeth. Each patient will have a different amount of trays as no one treatment is the same. Trays are custom made to each individual and cannot be used by others for orthodontic treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign® in Newport Beach, CA

Invisalign offers several advantages over traditional braces, including:

  • Discreet appearance: The aligners are clear and virtually invisible when worn, making them less noticeable than metal braces.
  • Removability: Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, drink, brush, and floss more easily.
  • Comfort: The aligners are made of smooth plastic, reducing the risk of irritation to the gums and cheeks.
  • Convenience: Invisalign treatment typically requires fewer visits to the dentist for adjustments compared to traditional braces.

Invisalign can be used to treat a variety of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. However, it is best to consult with an Invisalign provider to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. In more complex cases, traditional braces or other orthodontic options may be recommended.

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case and the specific alignment goals. On average, Invisalign treatment can range from several months to about 1-2 years. Your dentist or orthodontist can provide a more accurate estimate based on your individual needs.

The cost of Invisalign treatment can vary based on several factors, including the complexity of your orthodontic case, the duration of the treatment, and the geographic location of the dental practice. Generally, the cost of Invisalign falls within a range similar to traditional braces.

Dental insurance plans may provide coverage for orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign, but the extent of coverage can vary significantly. Some dental insurance plans offer partial coverage, up to a certain percentage or a specific dollar amount, while others may not cover orthodontic treatment at all. It’s important to review your dental insurance policy or contact your insurance provider directly to understand the details of your coverage.
