Invisalign Treatment vs Clear Aligner Treatment
Some patients are looking for treatment options other than traditional braces. Usually, discontent with the esthetic and discomfort with conventional metal braces are often the reasons behind asking for Invisalign. These tooth-colored clear plastic trays have revolutionized dentistry.
The Invisalign system was one of the early aligner systems. Align technology developed a step-by-step tooth movement software (Clincheck) used to fabricate multiple sets of aligners. Invisalign trays (smarttrack) and other clear aligners can address most of dental issues like crowding and underbite.
These plastic aligners slowly became a popular treatment option to build a new smile with straighter teeth.
Fast forward, many aligner systems are available for clear aligner therapy. Orthodontic treatment is plan to build a new smile and improve oral health, which can be done with either aligner trays or braces.
At PORTH, Dr. Rooz offers you with a personalized aligner system distilling all advances of aligner treatment.
Patient Experience with PORTH Aligners
Can clear aligners fix all orthodontic problems?
Advances in aligner treatment allows us to use aligner trays to fix most malocclusion like crossbite, underbite, spacing, deep overbite, or openbite.
Clear aligners also known as invisible braces is a great option for some patients, yet we still have patients that opt for lingual braces, clear braces, or conventional braces after they learn about the commitment and life style changes with aligners.
What is the cost of aligner treatment?
Clear aligners or Invisalign cost depends on the cost of orthodontics treatment. Dental insurance covers part of orthodontic treatment with clear aligners (Invisalign). Insurance plans varies for their coverage. The average dental insurance coverage for aligner treatment is $1500- $2500. Dental practices often offer retainers and teeth whitening with aligner treatment; make sure to ask during your consultation. Clear aligners or Invisalign provided by dental professionals costs vary.
