Here at Hutta & Hutta, we are happy to offer Invisalign treatment to our patients in Westerville. Invisalign is an easy, alternative method to braces that corrects minor orthodontic problems.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. These aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. This technique will straighten your teeth without wires or brackets, and is virtually unnoticeable.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign works as a set of undetectable, retainer-like aligners, so no one will even know you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. The aligners are removable, so you can still eat all of your favorite foods – even popcorn! Every two weeks, you’ll replace the aligner with the next in the series, moving your teeth little by little, week by week until they have straightened to their final positions. Each aligner is made specifically for you using advanced computer technology, so you will have a personalized and custom experience. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Want a perfect smile, but don’t want to get braces? Now you can have your cake and it eat too with Invisalign! Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of clear, plastic aligners that are specially molded to your teeth. During treatment, you will wear an aligner for about two weeks and then will switch to an aligner that gets your teeth even straighter than the one before. With each new aligner, your teeth will move closer and closer to your perfect smile. Each aligner is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and fits your mouth perfectly to provide maximum comfort. Treatment only lasts for an average of 9 to 15 months, bringing you a perfect smile efficiently and easily.
Because Invisalign straightens your teeth without brackets or wires, you will need fewer trips to our office during your treatment. Many of our young adult and adult patients prefer Invisalign because the clear aligners straighten your teeth without anyone knowing that you’re undergoing orthodontic work. All they’ll notice is that your smile suddenly became even brighter and shinier!
Worried about having braces at Homecoming or Prom? Straighten your teeth, braces free, with Invisalign! Now there’s no need to flash a smile full of uncomfortable metal; Invisalign’s clear aligners are custom made to perfectly fit your smile while gradually shifting your teeth until they are perfectly straight.
Invisalign also allows you to be more independent. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about giving up your favorite snacks because whenever you eat, you pop out the aligner and are all set to go. The aligners are also made out of strong plastic, so you don’t have to worry about them breaking when you’re playing sports. No one wants to worry about damaging brackets or wires when they’re about to score the winning goal or hit a home run.
Q:What are the benefits of Invisalign over traditional braces?
A: Invisalign aligners are clear, so they are far less noticeable than braces. And, because the aligners are removable, you do not have to eliminate any of your favorite hard or crunchy foods during treatment. This also means that it is easier to take care of your oral hygiene because you won’t have to worry about working around the wires and brackets that come with traditional braces. Finally, you will have fewer office appointments because we won’t have to continually adjust your wires and brackets.
Q: How much does Invisalign cost?
A: The cost will vary depending on length of treatment and how much correction Drs. Hutta and Hutta recommend. If your insurance covers traditional orthodontic care, it is likely that Invisalign will be covered as well.
Q: How long does Invisalign treatment last?
A: Treatment length will vary depending on each patient’s individual smile needs, but average treatment time is 9-15 months.
Q: Does Invisalign hurt?
A: While we make sure that any orthodontic treatment we provide is as comfortable as possible, Invisalign is our most comfortable treatment option! Each aligner is created specifically for your smile and gradually shifts your teeth without needing to continually tighten any wires. The plastic retainers are also more comfortable for your gums than traditional braces.
