Invisalign® in Bozeman, Montana
Invisalign is a transparent, plastic form of braces that has grown in popularity during recent years. As invisible aligners, Invisalign treatment straightens teeth and can be worn and removed for specific periods of time, allowing patients to continue smiling without the looming appearance of braces.
This means that the stress over wearing traditional braces as an adult and the anxiety that they might interfere with your lifestyle are no longer issues. Invisalign truly allows patients to continue their day-to-day lives with minimal changes or preparation concerns. From adolescence to adulthood, this is a popular alternative to traditional braces.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does comprehensive treatment take?
On average, clear aligner orthodontic treatment plans can last 12 to 18 months, depending on the case complexity. While treatment times using aligners vary, users that are diligent about wearing Invisalign® aligners tend to see better end results for their teeth and gums. For the best results, it is recommended that daily and continual wear time – excluding eating and routine dental care – be maintained for the best results.
How much does Invisalign® cost?
Orthodontic costs vary patient to patient depending upon their orthodontic needs. For instance, minor issues like crooked teeth are often easier to treat than a severe overbite. That said, the average cost of Invisalign® can be as low as $3,000 for mild cases and range up to around $5,000. The American Association of Orthodontists suggest that multiple factors and variables affect the cost of treatment, so it is best to discuss any treatment plan with your orthodontist.
