Ottawa patients ask about the cost of Invisalign for a straighter smile
Posted By Dr. France Chevalier
Patients choose orthodontic treatments to address issues such as crowded, crooked, or gapped teeth. Proper alignment is important for overall dental health and boosts self-esteem by improving the smile. Straight teeth reduce the cost of future dental work as they are easier to brush and floss, preventing bacteria from accumulating. Located in Ottawa, Dr. France Chevalier offers Invisalign to correct mild to moderate orthodontic issues.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses clear, plastic trays to align the teeth. The trays use gentle pressure to gradually position the teeth. Patients are given a series of trays created from 3D images of the mouth. An animation shows the progression of the teeth as they move into the correct alignment. This is then used to create the trays which are changed every two weeks.
Patients often choose Invisalign for the following reasons:
Less noticeable - Invisalign trays are made of transparent plastic so they do not stand out the way metal brackets and wires do.
Removable - The trays can be taken out for eating, brushing, and flossing but should be worn as recommended for optimal results.
Comfortable - There is no tightening of wires or changing of bands to cause discomfort. The trays allow you to speak normally.
A healthy smile is worth the cost.
A healthy smile is beautiful. Straight teeth generally have a better bite and they are easier to keep clean and free of plaque and decay. With a good oral health regimen, you can keep your teeth healthy and avoid future dental work. Some insurance companies cover orthodontic work, but there may be out-of-pocket expenses. Contact your insurance company to determine what treatments are covered and what your portion may be.
