Many adults have a strong desire for straight teeth and a bright smile but are uncomfortable with the idea of wearing metal braces. Susan Baloul, DMD, MS, DScD, a dual-trained specialist in orthodontics and periodontics, offers Invisalign® for adults in Boston, Norwood, Brookline, and Framingham, MA to eliminate the stigma associated with wearing braces.
What is Invisalign® for Adults?
Adults who may not have had orthodontics as a young person or who want to realign their teeth to a straighter position may opt to have Invisalign® for adults. Because they are made of clear plastic and are not noticeable to most people, adults are often more comfortable wearing them.
Why Choose Invisalign® for Adults?
Invisalign® for Adults is typically the preferred treatment over traditional metal braces whenever possible. Since Invisalign® uses clear, plastic aligner trays to straighten teeth, they are much less noticeable allowing adults to maintain a professional appearance.
How Long is the Treatment with Invisalign® for Adults?
The treatment process for Invisalign® varies with each patient. Typically, the treatment with Invisalign® for adults takes up to two years depending on whether they had braces as a child. In some cases, adults who wore braces as a child may only need Invisalign® treatments for a few months.
How Much Does Invisalign® for Adults Cost?
The cost of Invisalign® for adults varies with each patient based on the length of the treatment and the number of trays needed to achieve their desired look. We provide patients with detailed information about the cost as well as payment and financing options to make it more affordable. We also help patients determine if their dental insurance provides coverage for orthodontics, as some policies offer it as an elective. We accept cash, checks and major credit cards as well as financing through OrthoFi.
Am I a Good Candidate for Invisalign® for Adults?
If you have misaligned or crooked teeth, or have gaps between your teeth, you may be a good candidate for Invisalign® for adults. We recommend you schedule a consultation with Dr. Baloul to evaluate your teeth and bite to determine if Invisalign® is the best option to achieve your desired look.
