Why Choose Invisalign?

Improving
Aesthetics but Also Functionality

Invisalign can transform how your smile looks by giving you beautiful, straight teeth. This has numerous benefits beyond cosmetic improvements, though. Crooked teeth increase the risk that bacterial plaque from food debris becomes trapped between the crevices of teeth. This plaque, if it hardens into tartar, can cause cavities and lead to the development of gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease.

Crooked teeth can also cause bite issues, teeth grinding and clenching, and TMJ and jaw pain. Straight teeth make it possible for you to properly brush and floss your teeth. You’ll discover that your oral hygiene routine will become easier and have better results. Similarly, aligned teeth will improve how your teeth fit together, helping to resolve functional problems associated with crooked teeth and a bad bite. Overall, Invisalign treatment in Beverly Hills, CA will improve the health and function of your smile, in addition to providing natural smile aesthetics and a boost to your confidence!

Research shows that nearly everyone has some type of tooth misalignment. Some of these misalignments are very mild and hardly noticeable. Others are severe and require attention because they could ultimately lead to additional issues.

Dr. Joseph Stan, DDS offers orthodontic treatment options to resolve dental misalignments to create a beautiful, functional smile. One of the most popular options is Invisalign. In this article, we’ll explain what you need to know about this treatment option.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces for resolving a wide range of dental misalignments. This treatment is a series of clear, custom-fitted, plastic aligners designed to gradually shift teeth into their appropriate position.
This option is primarily recommended for mild to moderate misalignments but may also be used for more severe cases with the inclusion of resin “buttons” placed on the teeth to hold the aligners in place.

How Does Invisalign Work

On average, treatment time takes about 12 to 18 months. However, more severe cases may take up to 24 months and milder cases may only take 6 months. It is important to note that compliance in wearing the aligners is a significant factor in the effectiveness of this treatment.

INVISALIGN USES​

Invisalign Uses

Invisalign is an appropriate option for a variety of misalignments, including:

Underbite

Underbite is a condition characterized by the lower teeth overlapping the upper teeth, usually because the lower jaw is too far forward. This condition usually causes jaw pain, making it difficult to eat or speak.

Overbite

Overbite is a fairly common condition characterized by the upper teeth overlapping the lower teeth. Typically, this condition is very mild.

Crossbite

A crossbite is a condition in which the teeth do not line up properly when the mouth is closed. This results in some of the upper teeth lying on the outside and some on the inside of the lower teeth.

Open Bite

An open bite is a condition in which some of the teeth do not touch when the mouth is closed.

Diastema

Diastema is a condition characterized by a gap between the teeth. Typically, it involves the upper two center teeth.

Invisalign vs Braces

Both Invisalign aligners and traditional braces are designed to resolve dental misalignments. However, there are a few differences that you need to be aware of:

Underbite is a condition characterized by the lower teeth overlapping the upper teeth, usually because the lower jaw is too far forward. This condition usually causes jaw pain, making it difficult to eat or speak.

INVISALIGN COST​

Invisalign Cost

The average cost of Invisalign treatment depends on the type and severity of your misalignment- which will determine how many aligners you need. Another factor that may impact cost is dental insurance coverage. While this is considered an orthodontic treatment, many insurance providers classify it as elective- which means they will not cover it. Our office staff will work with your provider to determine your coverage and provide you with a quote prior to beginning treatment.

There are several levels of treatment:

Invisalign Express

There are two levels for Invisalign Express:

  • Up to 5 aligners: average cost is $1,200 to $1,800
  • Up to 7 aligners: average cost is $1,500 to $2,000

Invisalign Lite

Invisalign Lite offers up to 14 aligners, with an average cost of $3,000 to $4,500

Invisalign Moderate

Invisalign Moderate offers up to 20 aligners, with an average cost of $3,500 to $5,000

Invisalign Comprehensive

Invisalign Comprehensive offers unlimited aligners, with an average cost of $4,500 to $8,000

Invisalign for Teens

The primary difference between standard Invisalign and Invisalign for Teens is that blue dots are included on teen aligners. The dots fade if the aligners are being worn. While this does not guarantee that teens will be compliant, it does give parents peace of mind that they can determine if their teen is wearing the aligners.
