How long does Invisalign treatment take and how much does it cost?Open or Close
The length of treatment time with Invisalign, like traditional braces, depends on the severity of the case. Dr. Feldman will be able to determine how long your treatment time will be at your initial consultation. In many cases, Invisalign takes less time than traditional braces with an average treatment time of about 12-14 months. Invisalign is also very affordable, with a cost similar to that of traditional braces...at least in our practice!
Are there restrictions on what I can eat and drink?Open or Close
No. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners can be removed so there is no need to avoid certain foods for fear of breaking a wire or bracket.
Will wearing the Invisalign aligners affect my speech?Open or Close
Like all orthodontic treatments, aligners may temporarily affect your speech; however, this is quite rare. If you do develop a slight lisp for a day or two, your tongue will get used to having aligners in your mouth, and the lisp almost always disappears quickly.
How often must I see my orthodontist?Open or Close
Dr. Feldman will schedule regular appointments, usually about once every 10-12 weeks. This is the only way your doctor can be sure that the treatment is progressing as planned.
Who is eligible for Invisalign Teen?Open or Close
Invisalign Teen treatment is appropriate for patients who have shed all their baby teeth and have second molars at least partially erupted - includes most teens from 12-18 years of age. Call (813)968-2483 today to schedule your FREE consultation and to find out if you qualify to start treatment now.
Will the Invisalign treatment be painful?Open or Close
Most people experience very slight tooth soreness for one to two days after starting each new aligner. This is normal. It is a sign that the Invisalign aligners are working - sequentially moving your teeth to their final destination. This soreness should gradually go away within a couple of days after you insert the new aligner in the series. If it does not, you should promptly call our office.
How often must I wear my aligners?Open or Close
Invisalign ONLY works while you are wearing the aligners. We recommend that you wear your aligners 24/7, day and night. The only exceptions are to eat, brush, and floss your teeth.
How does Invisalign Teen work?Open or Close
3-D computer imaging technology maps the complete treatment (clincheck) from start to finish. From the virtual reality plan, a series of custom-made aligners is produced. You wear each aligner for two weeks. During this time, the aligners gradually move your teeth until they achieve the desired final position.
