Invisalign® in Westland, MI

Have you always wanted to straighten your teeth or fix your bite, but didn’t want the stigma of wearing traditional metal braces? Our dentists can give you everything you want by correcting your teeth invisibly with Invisalign.

How Does Invisalign Correct Your Smile?

Think of the treatment as invisible braces that slowly shift your teeth into their proper positions. The treatment features a series of invisible, customized plastic aligners that you wear over your teeth. Each set of clear aligners is worn for approximately two weeks before you’re given a new one. The aligners let you correct minor to moderate orthodontic issues discreetly, rather than wearing noticeable metal braces. As a result, no one will see that you’re in the midst of correcting your teeth.

What Is the Cost of Invisalign in Westland?

Don’t assume that the Invisalign cost is too much. When comparing Invisalign vs. braces, you’ll often find that the Invisalign cost is approximately the same amount as conventional metal braces. Be assured that our skilled Invisalign dentists can provide you with an estimate of the total cost based on your orthodontic condition and the extent of your treatments needs. It’s possible that a portion of your Invisalign cost could be covered by your dental insurance policy. In addition, our local dental practice offers low-interest financing and flexible payment options as additional ways to make Invisalign treatment fit into your budget.

Please call our dental office for details about our affordable payment options. We can also help you determine whether you have Invisalign insurance coverage, or you can contact your insurance provider directly.

Does Invisalign Treatment Take a Long Time?

Generally, the length of treatment time is determined by the extent of your orthodontic needs. For most adults, treatment with invisible aligners takes ten months to two years, with an average of one year. When treatment is complete, our dentists provide Invisalign retainers to keep your teeth in the proper position.

Is It Difficult to Find Good Invisalign Dentists Near You?

Absolutely not. The treatment can be provided by a licensed orthodontist or general dentist who has been thoroughly trained in the procedure. And you can find an experienced and knowledgeable dentist for Invisalign in Westland at our local dentist office.
Call our office today to set up a friendly consultation and see if you are eligible for this orthodontic treatment.

What Are the Biggest Differences of Invisalign vs. Braces?

While a more discreet appearance is a major consideration, it’s more important to focus on learning which option is better for you. For minor orthodontic concerns like overcrowding, poor spacing, or crooked teeth, invisible aligners can work just as well as traditional braces. But for advanced orthodontic problems, braces could be a better option. When it comes to oral hygiene, aligners allow you to clean your teeth much more easily since the trays are removed while brushing, flossing, and eating. Our expert Invisalign dentists can examine your teeth and recommend the ideal orthodontic option for you.

Does Invisalign Offer You Many Benefits?

There are many benefits to wearing invisible aligners, including:

  • Freedom to eat any foods you want.
  • Ability to remove the aligners at any time.
  • No irritation from metal brackets and wires.
  • The convenience of only needing dentist visits every four to six weeks.
  • The attractiveness and confidence of a mouth free of metal.

Is Invisalign Right for Everyone?

Not necessarily. While aligners are ideal for adults and teenagers, they may not be right for children during dental development. And they often aren’t recommended for complex orthodontic problems like bite misalignment, severe spacing issues, and major overcrowding.

Call our office today to arrange a convenient Invisalign consultation.

Does Invisalign Impact Your Daily Life?

  • You don’t need to worry about restricting certain foods because the aligners are taken out before you eat.
  • You shouldn’t chew gum while wearing the aligners because it will stick to them.
  • Avoid smoking and chewing tobacco since it causes staining.

What Kind of Care Do the Aligners Require?

  1. Clean your aligners according to the manufacturer’s cleaning guidelines, which are available at our office.
  2. An alternate option is simply rinsing and brushing the aligners with cool or warm water, being sure to avoid hot water since it can cause damage.
  3. Replace a cracked, damaged, or warped aligner immediately by calling our dental office immediately to get a new one. Any damage to the aligner can affect your overall results.
