How Invisalign Works

  1. Come in for Your Consultation: Your consultation is the first step on your journey towards a healthy smile. Our team will capture any necessary diagnostic information, like X-rays, to make sure that your orthodontic issues can be addressed using Invisalign clear aligners. We’ll then capture impressions of your mouth on our iTero digital impression system and show you how your alignment will change throughout your treatment. We’ll also provide you with an estimate of how long your treatment process will take, along with pricing details.
  2. Learn How to Use Your New Aligners: Once you consent to move forward with treatment, we’ll order your first set of aligners from the Invisalign laboratory. As soon as they arrive, we’ll call you in to instruct you on how to use and clean them.
  3. Visit Us for Routine Check-Ins: Every four to six weeks, you’ll return to our office for quick progress-checks and to pick up the new trays in your treatment. These will continue until your final results have been achieved.
  4. Get Your Retainer: After your treatment is complete, we’ll use our digital impression system to capture a model of your mouth that Invisalign will use to create your retainer. This will be important to wear after your treatment in order to keep your teeth in their proper alignment.

Who Can Invisalign Help?

The best way to find out whether you’re a candidate for Invisalign is to come into our office for a consultation. This will allow us to assess the severity and type of orthodontic issues you face as well as show you how aligners can correct them. We’ll tailor your treatment plan to ensure you achieve your desired results!

Crowded Teeth

Dental crowding can impact both the health and overall appearance of your smile by creating crevices that make brushing and flossing more difficult. Ultimately, this orthodontic struggle can lead to a higher risk of common oral health problems like cavities and gum disease.

Gaps Between Teeth

While having misspaced teeth may not be an aesthetic issue for some, others find the gaps between their teeth less-than-appealing. Invisalign trays are able to close these spaces and create an evenly aligned, straight row of pearly whites.

An overbite is a type of misalignment where the upper teeth extend too far beyond the lower teeth when the mouth is closed. Severe overbites can cause speech impediments, jaw discomfort, uneven tooth wear, and other issues. Invisalign treatment can often address overbites by repositioning the teeth and guiding the lower jaw into its proper alignment.

An underbite occurs when the lower teeth protrude over the upper teeth when the mouth is closed. This can increase the risk of obstructive sleep apnea, chronic mouth breathing, and difficulties with speech and chewing. In many cases, Invisalign can correct underbites using elastic bands to help the lower jaw settle into the correct position.

A crossbite happens when some lower teeth sit in front of the upper teeth. If left untreated, this condition may increase the risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and tooth fractures. Invisalign treatment typically realigns the teeth and jaws to correct a crossbite, promoting better oral health.

Open Bite

Do you notice a gap between your upper and lower front teeth even when your back teeth touch? If so, you may have an open bite, which can lead to speech challenges and excessive wear on the back teeth. Fortunately, Invisalign often resolves open bites by bringing the upper and lower front teeth into proper alignment.

The Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign provides a variety of benefits that patients can take advantage of, including:

  • Discreet, clear aligners that help you maintain your unique expression and professional appearance.
  • Can address a wide range of orthodontic issues, making it a versatile treatment for most patients.
  • Allows you to maintain better oral hygiene with conveniently removable trays.
  • Helps you maintain a balanced diet by eating the same foods you’re used to (just remove your aligners before eating!).
  • A faster average treatment time than traditional braces.
  • A more comfortable orthodontic appliance due to its smooth texture.

Understanding the Cost of Invisalign

The cost of your Invisalign treatment will be determined by a few key factors, which we will review at your initial consultation. At that time, we’ll also provide you with a detailed cost estimate so you know what to expect, and we’re happy to help you navigate your dental insurance benefits so you can receive maximum coverage. We also work with CareCredit, which is a third-party additional financier that can help split the cost of your dental treatment into manageable monthly payments.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Invisalign

As we touched on in the previous paragraph, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all price when it comes to the cost of Invisalign. Instead, our Grapevine dental team needs to create a custom treatment plan based on the severity of your misalignment and whether you need to straighten both arches of teeth or just one. This will determine important information, like how many aligners you need and if any additional accessories are required (like attachments or rubber bands).

Important note: There are also factors that can impact the cost down the line, like if you need an aligner replaced or you completely fall off-track with your original treatment plan.

Invisalign vs. Smile Direct Club™: Which Costs More?

Almost always, mail-order clear aligner companies cost more. That’s because they completely bypass important steps of the treatment process, like the initial exam. Unfortunately, that has resulted in countless patients experiencing worsened misalignment and even fallen-out teeth. So, although the upfront cost may be lower, the total cost may end up being significantly more than if you started your treatment with a reliable, safe, and professional brand, like Invisalign.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Invisalign?

Sometimes! In fact, if your dental insurance provider deems your treatment “medically necessary,” then there is a chance that they will cover upwards of 50% of the cost. For that reason alone, it’s worth double-checking the fine print on your plan or calling the helpline on your paperwork to learn more about your benefits. Of course, you can also bring any questions you have to our team – we can help you better understand your coverage!

Options for Making Invisalign Affordable

Dental insurance isn’t the only financial solution we offer; we also welcome flexible financing with CareCredit! As a result, you don’t have to try to pay for the entire cost of Invisalign at once. Instead, you can space-out your payments into budget-friendly chunks that fit into your monthly budget. You may even qualify for low-to-no interest payment plans, which make the price even more affordable. As always, if you have any questions about the cost of your care, you can always contact us directly so we can help!

Invisalign FAQs

FAQs and question marks on blue background

Invisalign in Grapevine is the preferred orthodontic system for teens and adults because it is discrete and comfortable. It’s normal to have a few questions about the road ahead. Dr. Jason Daaboul will explain everything during your initial consultation. Feel free to contact our office with any concerns or take a look at the answers to the most frequently asked questions below.

What Does Invisalign Look Like?

Clear BPA-free plastic is used to create a series of aligners that are worn over your teeth to move them in small increments. Although you can see aligners while holding them in your hand, they are difficult to detect when you’re wearing them. You can ensure your aligners maintain their transparency by caring for them properly and removing them when eating or drinking anything except water.

Does Invisalign Hurt?

No orthodontic treatment is completely pain-free; however, patients report that Invisalign is more comfortable than metal braces. The aligners are smooth, so there’s no irritation to the inside of your lips or cheeks. Each aligner will fit like a glove, so you don’t have to worry about them slipping or moving around. It’s normal to experience tenderness when first getting your aligners or when changing to the next set in your series, but that’s a sign your treatment is working. Your aligners apply continual pressure, which can make your mouth a little sore. You can manage it with an OTC pain reliever and eat soft foods. As you progress through your treatment, the occurrence of discomfort will lessen until it doesn’t happen at all.

Do I Use Toothpaste to Clean My Aligners?

Your cosmetic dentist in Grapevine will advise against using toothpaste to clean your aligners because it is abrasive. It can cause small scratches that can make your aligners look discolored. Food residue and plaque can get trapped in the crevasses, leading to stains and odors. Instead, it’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a mild hand soap or dishwashing liquid to keep your aligners clean, or purchase an OTC cleaning kit for Invisalign.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

The average treatment with Invisalign takes about 12-18 months; however, many factors will affect your timeline, like your age. Teens are still growing and developing, so their teeth can move more quickly. The complexity of your case will determine how many aligners you’ll need. You can ensure there aren’t any delays in your treatment by wearing your aligners for at least 22 hours per day and switching to a new set every 1-2 weeks, as instructed by your dentist. Maintain your regular follow-up appointments. Your dentist will monitor the progression of your treatment to detect anything concerning before it turns into a problem.
