The Invisalign Alternative
Invisalign™ invisible braces are the clear alternative to traditional metal braces. Dr. Mullen is truly an Invisalign expert. He holds multiple distinctions, including the distinguished ranking of Invisalign Platinum Provider. And he is the only one in Leesburg with this distinction!
Because it has several advantages over traditional braces, Invisalign is a great alternative to braces for many of our patients here at Mullen Orthodontics. It is clear, and is much less noticeable than braces when you are smiling and talking. Since the aligners do not protrude into your lips and cheeks to the same degree as braces, it offers a bit more comfort. This option also allows you to eat anything you want during your treatment, and allows you to brush and floss your teeth normally. Invisalign is a very effective treatment option, but it does have some limitations. Therefore, Dr. Mullen will need to assess whether you would be a good candidate for Invisalign.
What Exactly is Invisalign?
Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created uniquely for you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Mullen plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You will achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. And the best part about the whole process is that it is almost unnoticeable.
Is Invisalign Right for You?
You may be wondering how Invisalign compares to traditional braces and which treatment is right for you. Both treatment options work effectively to straighten teeth and can be used to treat crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite and underbite. But for many patients, Invisalign offers clear advantages over braces.
The aligners used in Invisalign are made of a virtually invisible plastic. In fact, you may be surprised that many people will not realize that you are undergoing treatment. Invisalign not only straightens your teeth but allows you to brush and floss as you normally would since the aligners are removable. As a result, you can continue to eat all of your favorite foods with no dietary restrictions.
Since the aligners are so comfortable, it is easy to wear them for the recommended 22 hours per day. You may even forget that you are wearing them! Invisalign requires fewer orthodontic visits which means less time out of your busy schedule. So, it gives you the convenience and flexibility to live life without the hassles associated with other types of treatment.
Comparable Treatment Cost
The cost of Invisalign is usually comparable to the cost of traditional braces. Mullen Orthodontics can arrange a payment plan for your treatments.
No parent wants to compromise when it comes to straightening their teen’s teeth. With school, sports and even prom time, traditional braces may not always be the best choice for teens. Invisalign can eliminate the self-consciousness and discomfort associated with traditional metal braces. Its aligners are unobtrusive, comfortable and easy to keep clean. For teens who play sports or a musical instrument, the aligners are not an interference like braces. And with Invisalign, your teen can continue to enjoy all of his or her favorite foods.
