Getting started with your orthodontic treatment can feel overwhelming. The orthodontists and staff here at Xcelerated Orthodontics are committed to help answer any questions you may have every step of the way. We’ve put together a few of the most common questions we receive with their answers below.
What is Invisalign?
The Invisalign System is a series of clear aligners that are custom made for your teeth. We utilize advanced 3D Imaging to design your entire treatment plan – from your initial position to the final smile outcome you’ve always wanted.
How long will it take to straighten my teeth with Invisalign?
Treatment times vary on a case-by-case basis, but because we offer the option for accelerated treatment, we are able to treat most cases within 14 months.
Is Invisalign as effective as metal braces?
Invisalign can treat a wide variety of orthodontic cases, and in most instances are able to achieve the same results as metal braces. To see if you or your child is a candidate for Invisalign, reach out to schedule your free initial consultation.
Does Invisalign hurt?
You may experience some minor discomfort the first few days of your Invisalign treatment, but that is simply your teeth adjusting to the new aligners. If needed, you can take over-the-counter pain relievers to help during this time. Each set of trays in the series will shift your teeth just a little bit more, so it is normal to experience slight soreness throughout treatment.
How much does Invisalign cost?
Xcelerated Orthodontics wants to make orthodontic treatment affordable and accessible to all who need it through competitive pricing and financing options. Learn more about our costs and financing for Invisalign.
How often do I need to wear my aligners?
For the best results, you will need to wear your Invisalign aligners 20 to 22 hours each day.
