About Invisalign Treatment
Many patients accept crooked, uneven, or generally unattractive teeth just to avoid traditional metal braces because of their visible appearance and discomfort. With the advent of Invisalign clear teeth aligners, patients no longer have to worry about the unpleasantness of metal braces, thanks to an innovative approach. Using clear, removable aligners, the system gradually and effectively straightens teeth comfortably and almost invisibly. The dentists at Cosmetic Dental Associates in Houston will tailor treatment plans for patients to achieve the best-looking results. Most patients can expect to get the teeth of their dreams in about a year.
Invisalign® Orthodontics Reviews
"I love Dr Spiker an his staff, I no longer live near by, but I still wouldn't go anywhere else. Dr. Spiker has fixed a crown done wrong by another Dentist, and now I am a patient for life. I see him for everything from my cleanings to Invisalign braces, when it comes to my mouth there is no one else I would trust. "- M. / Demandforce / Oct 18, 2013

What to Expect With Invisalign Aligners
To be fitted for Invisalign clear aligners, a dentist will take photos, digital x-rays, and make impressions of the patient’s teeth. From these, a set of clear, plastic, customized aligners will be created to fit the patient’s mouth. The aligners are part of a treatment plan that will make gradual changes and adjustments to the teeth. A patient wears the aligners for a predetermined amount of time before moving onto the next aligner. Conveniently, aligners are pain-free and easily removable, which is ideal for eating, brushing, and flossing.
Invisalign Treatment Aftercare
A dentist will determine how long a patient needs to wear Invisalign clear aligners, depending on the starting condition of the patient’s teeth. New aligners will be created about every two weeks or as needed to incrementally adjust the patient’s teeth. Throughout the process, the patient will have regular checkups with the dentist to confirm the patient’s progress. Most patients achieve full results in 1 – 2 years.
Anticipated Costs For Invisalign Treatment
The price of Invisalign treatment is dependent upon the patient’s condition with more severe cases costing more. For less serious cases, there’s Invisalign Express treatment, which is $2,500 – $3,500. More complex cases can cost anywhere from $4,000 – $5,500. Our front office will check with the patient’s insurance carrier to see if any costs will be covered under their policy.
Invisalign Treatment FAQs
How much does Invisalign treatment cost?
The total price of Invisalign treatment will vary from patient to patient, depending on the severity of the displacement of their teeth. After conducting an initial consultation, our experienced dentists will be able to provide you with a more in-depth treatment plan, as well as an accurate cost estimate.
Can you eat while wearing Invisalign clear aligners?
The act of chewing food can easily damage or crack your Invisalign clear aligners. It's important to always remember to take them out whenever you eat anything, even if it is just a light snack. Once you've finished eating, you should always brush your teeth and clean your Invisalign clear aligners before reinserting them into your mouth.
Is Invisalign treatment right for everyone?
In addition to not being able to treat severely misaligned teeth and/or jaws, Invisalign treatment requires a great deal of patient care and attention. If you are not committed to ensuring consistent cleaning and maintenance or to wearing the Invisalign clear aligners for the prescribed number of hours per day, this treatment may not be right for you.
