Invisalign in El Paso

At El Paso Family Orthodontics with Dr. Michelle Espina. Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Dr. Espina and her El Paso Family Orthodontics team are likely well-trained and experienced in providing Invisalign treatment. It’s essential to research and consult an orthodontist to determine if Invisalign is the right treatment option for you.

WHAT IS INVISALIGN?

Invisalign is a modern, fully digitized experience without the intrusive look of traditional braces.

You look at people with straight teeth and wonder how fortunate they are to have a straight, Hollywood-like smile. We understand.

Our smile is integral to our personality, and having jagged, overlapping, or crooked teeth can significantly influence our confidence.

Did you know that nine in 10 people have teeth that are at least slightly misaligned1, and more than one-third of Americans are unhappy with their smile2?

With Invisalign’s clear braces from your authorized El Paso orthodontist, you can straighten your smile discreetly, without the need for brackets and wires, and without calling attention to your orthodontic treatment – regardless of your age!

If you’re considering clear aligners, are you familiar with these key advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces?

Invisalign offers more comfort and convenience with removable plastic aligners that can be taken out to eat, drink, brush your teeth, and floss.

Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so you can go about your daily routine with confidence.

See improvements as you move to each new aligner set. Traditional braces look the same, until the end - grow more comfortable with your new smile as it progresses.

Fewer follow-up visits with Invisalign than with traditional braces.

If these advantages match your wants, Invisalign may be ideal for you.

All-in-one resource guide for Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to move teeth into the desired position gradually. The aligners are made of smooth plastic and are custom-fit to the patient’s teeth.

At El Paso Family Orthodontics, the process of getting Invisalign may involve the following steps:

  1. Consultation: During a consultation, Dr. Espina will examine your teeth and bite and discuss treatment goals and options. If you proceed with Invisalign, the next step will be to take impressions or scans of your teeth.
  2. Treatment planning: Dr. Espina will use these impressions or scans to create a treatment plan and a series of aligners. The plan will show how the teeth are expected to move during treatment.
  3. Fabrication of aligners: The aligners are custom-made based on the treatment plan. They are typically made of clear plastic and are designed to be worn over the teeth.
  4. Wearing the aligners: The patient will wear each set for about two weeks, then switch to the next set in the series. The aligners should be worn at all times except when eating, brushing, and flossing. The patient will visit our El Paso office periodically for check-ups to ensure the treatment is progressing as planned.
  5. Completion of treatment: When the treatment is complete, the patient will likely need to wear a retainer to maintain the new position of their teeth.

This is a general overview of the Invisalign process at El Paso Family Orthodontics. The specific details of treatment may vary from patient to patient.

Invisalign aligners are smooth, comfortable plastic that should not cause irritation or discomfort when worn. Some people may experience a slight pressure sensation when they first start wearing a new set of aligners, which can signify that the aligners are doing their job and moving the teeth into the desired position. This pressure should go away within a few days as the teeth become accustomed to the aligners.

It is vital to wear the aligners for the recommended amount of time each day, which is typically at least 22 hours. Wearing your aligners as directed will help ensure that treatment is completed on time and that the desired results are achieved. If the aligners are not worn for the recommended time, treatment may take longer or be less effective.

Overall, Invisalign aligners should be comfortable to wear and not cause discomfort or irritation. If you are experiencing pain or have concerns about your treatment, you must speak with your dental professional.

Both teenagers and adults can wear Invisalign. These clear braces are used to close gaps between teeth and treat overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, and overcrowded teeth.

After an examination and x-rays of your teeth, we can discuss if Invisalign is the proper orthodontic treatment.

The length of Invisalign treatment can vary depending on the complexity of the case and the specific goals of treatment.

On average, treatment with Invisalign takes about 12 to 18 months, although some patients may complete treatment in as little as six months or may need treatment for longer than 18 months.

As the treatment progresses, the aligners will apply gentle pressure to the teeth, gradually moving them into the desired position. The length of treatment will depend on the amount of movement needed and the specific treatment goals.

It is important to follow the treatment plan prescribed by your dental professional and to wear the aligners as directed to ensure that treatment is completed on time and that the desired results are achieved.

Invisalign costs range from $1,800 to $9,500, depending on the complexity of the problem. The average price for a teenager is $3,000. A typical adult would spend  $5,700 for a “full” treatment.

These averages compare to $3,000 to $7,000 for traditional wire-and-bracket braces. So, your cost may or may not equal what you would pay for conventional braces, depending on your individual needs and treatment plan.

Many dental insurance plans cover Invisalign just like they do braces.

You can use a flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA) to pay for Invisalign. Some employers offer an FSA program that you can pay into through pretax payroll deductions. Another option is an HSA if you have a qualified high-deductible health insurance plan. An HSA lets you set money aside to pay tax-free for eligible medical, dental, and orthodontic expenses, but unlike an FSA, the funds don’t expire after a year.

If you don’t have an FSA or HSA, there’s another way to get tax savings. You can deduct medically necessary dental and orthodontic expenses from your tax return if they exceed 7.5% of your adjusted gross income. So, save all your receipts.

After Invisalign treatment is complete, it is important to continue wearing a retainer as directed by your dental professional to help maintain the treatment results.

A retainer is a custom-made appliance worn to hold the teeth in their new position. There are several types of retainers, including fixed (bonded) and removable retainers.

Dr. Espina will recommend the type of retainer best for your needs and will provide instructions on how to care for and wear the retainer. It is essential to follow these instructions carefully to ensure that your teeth do not shift back to their original position.

You will also need to continue practicing good oral hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing regularly and visiting your dental professional for regular check-ups and cleanings.

By taking good care of your teeth and following your dental professional’s recommendations, you can help ensure that the results of your Invisalign treatment last a lifetime.
