Not many people realize the complications having crooked teeth can cause, especially if you have dental malocclusion. When your teeth aren’t straight they are going to make ridges and crevices, which are harder for your toothbrush to clean. This will only increase your chances of developing a cavity of an infection, which is why orthodontics isn’t just for cosmetic purposes. You will notice a difference in your oral hygiene after you have completely straightened your teeth.

What Does Invisalign Do?
When people think of teeth alignment, most would immediately think of braces, specifically the clunky style hyped up in the media. However, there are alternatives to fixing your teeth misalignment without the need of braces. Invisalign is a newer product in the dental world capable of providing you the assistance you need to straighten your teeth. Unlike braces, Invisalign is a retainer you put in at your own pace and it will slowly push all of your teeth into the right spot.
You may experience some discomfort when you start using this tool, but this is normal and is much less painful than the tightening you will need to go through with braces. Additionally, you will need to were these retainers for most of the day, even when you sleep so you can get the most out of this teeth alignment resource. Typically, you will only take out your retainers when you are eating food or drinking something capable of degrading the quality of it.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
Now, one of the downsides of using Invisalign is the fact it may be more expensive to use than braces. But, this all depends on where you live and where you get them. If you get them through a licensed distributor than you are most likely going to have the advantage of paying less for them. With a price between 2,000 and 7,000 dollars, it can be a deterrent for many. Thankfully, you can usually work something out to get discounts or you can sign up for their monthly payment plans.
These monthly charges can be as low as 30 dollars, but it all depends on how much work will be needed. Not regularly wearing your retainers can cause you to take a longer time to accomplish this task, which will, in turn, cause how much you pay to slowly increase. You will need to pay for more check-ups and retainers because your teeth aren’t straightening in the timeline originally given. This is why it’s vital you follow the instructions given when you first get Invisalign and at every check-up after.
