Invisalign is one such treatment that is gaining in popularity, but also faces myths associated with it. Invisalign works through a series of clear aligners that patients wear for two to three weeks. The aligners are custom-made just for you and gradually move your teeth with no pesky metal brackets or wires to adjust.
Dr. Aly Kanani, a Surrey Invisalign specialist, dispels some rumors for all those seeking straighter teeth through Invisalign treatment.
Common Myths Associated with Invisalign
Myth: Invisalign costs significantly more than traditional braces.
"The simple truth is, the costs for Invisalign treatment are very similar to the costs of traditional, metal braces," says Surrey orthodontics (http://www.langleyorthodontics.com/
Myth: Invisalign takes much longer to straighten teeth than braces.
No matter what process is used to straighten teeth, it can take weeks for teeth to move even a millimeter. However, Invisalign takes the same amount of time as braces to achieve optimal results for patients.
Myth: Invisalign is only for adults. (http://www.invisibleorthodontics.ca/
Invisalign works great for teens, too. Teens no longer have to be self-conscious about wearing braces, or worry about painful metal braces while playing contact sports, because Invisalign Teen is just for them. Invisalign Teen is more comfortable, and because the aligners are clear, Langley braces patients are happily smiling away in school and prom photos.
Myth: Invisalign is not covered by insurance.
Most insurance companies cover Invisalign treatment just as they do other orthodontist treatments. When choosing your orthodontist, always be sure he or she takes your insurance.
"My office has a special treatment coordinator to help you with insurance claims," says Dr. Kanani. "Once we have your insurance information, the coordinator will make sure you receive the maximum benefits under your policy."
Myth: Invisalign results are not as good as with traditional braces.
The end result whether a patient uses metal braces or Invisalign depends on the experience of your doctor and their team. There are countless benefits to Invisalign treatment that make Invisalign the treatment of choice for many patients.
Invisalign aligners are removable, which means they can be taken out while eating and drinking, and more importantly, while brushing and flossing teeth. Being able to remove the aligners while caring for teeth ensures proper oral hygiene while teeth are being moved. You no longer have to worry about brushing in the nooks and crannies that are created from the brackets and wires of traditional braces.( http://www.vancouverorthodontics.com/
Invisalign is also a much more comfortable option. With no metal wires and brackets, it is becoming a popular option for musicians who play wind instruments, as well as athletes involved in contact sports.
