Straightening crooked teeth doesn’t always require metal orthodontic braces. While the brackets and wires provide exceptional results in tooth realignment, many adults might feel self-conscious about having to wear the metal braces for two or more years. Invisalign® is an alternative to braces that utilizes a series of clear, custom-designed aligners that fit comfortably and snugly over your teeth. The aligners are designed to apply gentle force to crooked teeth to guide them into more symmetrical positions, and in some cases, Invisalign may work faster than traditional braces.
One of the greatest advantages of Invisalign® is that the aligners are clear and nearly invisible, making your orthodontic treatment significantly more discreet than braces. Even with the aligners in place, you can smile confidently knowing that they’re virtually unnoticeable to the people around you. Another advantage is that the aligners can temporarily be removed so you can eat and clean your teeth without having to work around cumbersome braces.
While Invisalign® treatment typically lasts as long as traditional orthodontic treatment, the process is significantly more comfortable and less taxing on your self-confidence. By making daily hygiene easier and more effective, Invisalign® can fix crooked teeth while promoting better oral health throughout the length of your treatment, and beyond.

The average cost of Invisalign® clear aligners is $5500 according to Invisalign®’s official website, www.invisalign.com, and it is typically not covered by dental insurance. But with a general dentist in Doctors Network, the cost for a limited treatment and a comprehensive treatment is only $2,000 and $3,000 respectively.
