Want to make your teeth straighter without using traditional metal braces? Thankfully, there’s a solution out there for you: Invisalign® in Reynoldsburg. With reliable and FDA-approved clear aligners, you can straighten teeth without using a single metal bracket or archwire. Even better, Dr. Walter Mick can provide this smile-transforming treatment for all ages, including older teens and adults! To learn more, read on or get in touch with our team.
As we begin the planning stages of your Invisalign® treatment, Dr. Mick makes use of unique 3D technology to create a plan that fits your specific needs. This includes showing what your smile will look like after it’s complete, even before you begin wearing your first clear aligner! After you receive the series of aligners, you’ll only need to wear each one for about two weeks before moving on to the next pair. Keep in mind that it’s important that you visit us once every six weeks to confirm your treatment progress. Most Invisalign® cases can be completed in just one year on average, which is sure to give you more than one reason to smile!
Teens and adults alike can benefit from discreet orthodontics using the Invisalign® system. To determine whether or not you are a good candidate for clear braces, your dentist in Reynoldsburg, OH will examine your orthodontic needs as well as the health of your teeth and gums in an initial consultation. Invisalign corrects the most common orthodontic issues, including:
Do your teeth overlap? Then they may be trapping food particles and plaque, making it more difficult to clean your teeth properly. Fortunately, Invisalign® can be relied on to guide your teeth into their perfectly aligned positions, benefiting the look and function of your teeth.
Gaps, even minor ones, can take a toll on your self-esteem. Like crowded teeth, this orthodontic issue can also cause plaque and other debris to get lodged in the unique crevices of your teeth, increasing your chances of developing gum disease and tooth decay in the process. Don’t worry – the clear aligners can help!
An uneven bite won’t just impede your ability to chew properly; it also has the potential to hinder your ability to speak clearly as well. Fortunately, Invisalign® can correct both misaligned teeth and uneven bites. In short, whether you have an open bite or a crossbite, you may not need the metal!
Invisalign® moves teeth into their preferred position using a series of clear, removable trays. Using trays instead of brackets and wires allows you to enjoy a more comfortable and discreet treatment. You won’t have to worry about developing mouth abrasions since there’s no metal involved -- and you will never have to schedule an emergency appointment to fix a broken bracket or loose wire.
However, those aren’t the only benefits you can expect. These trays can also be removed when it’s time to perform brushing and flossing as well as eat meals. No matter what your favorite foods might be, you can still enjoy them when completing treatment. Additionally, your oral care doesn’t have to change either. Invisalign® uses zero metal hardware to straighten teeth, which means you also won’t have to visit us as often just to have it tightened. Rather, you’ll only come in occasionally so we can confirm your progress. Overall, you spend less time thinking about orthodontic treatment and more time enjoying your straightened smile.
The best way to find out how much Invisalign® costs is by scheduling an initial consultation with our team. After all, each treatment plan is 100% customized to each patient! So, it’s difficult to give an estimate without considering important factors like if you’re straightening both arches, the severity of the orthodontic issue, and if any additional accessories are needed, like rubber bands. At your appointment, we will also review each of your financial options, including dental insurance and flexible financing. That way, understanding the cost is easy and headache-free.
