Frustrated by your crooked teeth? Feeling the effects of a poorly aligned bite? Want to avoid the camera because of the gap between your teeth? You’re not alone. Millions of people suffer from orthodontic problems that for decades was only treatable using traditional metal braces. Fortunately, there is now an alternative that offers a more discreet way to realign smiles – Invisalign in Odessa. With these clear aligners, you can enjoy a faster, more flexible way to achieve a straighter smile and bypass the metal brackets and wires. To find out if you are a qualified candidate, contact our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Cobb today.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Unlike traditional braces that use metal brackets and wires, Invisalign is made up of clear plastic aligners that are custom-made based on your individual needs. Each set is worn 20-22 hours a day for 1-2 weeks. After this time, you are expected to swap out your current set for the next one in the series. Throughout treatment, you will be expected to see your cosmetic dentist in Odessa for regular follow-up appointments to ensure your progress is moving along smoothly. Once you finish wearing all Invisalign sets, you will notice a dramatic difference in the way your teeth and smile align.

Indications for Invisalign

Invisalign is known to be one of the most versatile orthodontic treatments available. It is capable of treating:

Crowded Teeth

If you have too many teeth along the top or bottom arch of your mouth and experience overcrowding, you may be an eligible candidate for Invisalign. By wearing these clear aligners, your teeth will begin to shift, creating necessary space and allowing you to enjoy a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Not to mention, you will be able to effectively clean between your teeth, reducing your risk for tooth decay and gum disease.

Gaps Between Teeth

If you notice one or more gaps between your teeth, you probably find yourself hiding from the camera or avoiding social gatherings altogether. The good news is Invisalign can bring your teeth back together, eliminating unnecessary space and allowing you to enjoy a healthier, more beautiful smile. And you’ll no longer need to worry about trapped food between these gaps, which can cause bad breath, gum disease, and decay.

Bite Alignment

Whether you have an overbite, underbite, crossbite, or open bite, Invisalign can put it back into proper alignment and reduce your risk for temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) as well as excessive wear and tear on your tooth enamel.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

There is no set price tag associated with Invisalign. Why? Because each patient is different. When meeting with Dr. Cobb for your initial consultation, you can expect him to evaluate your entire oral cavity and facial structure to determine if you are a qualified candidate. If so, he will consider various factors before creating a complete cost estimate for your treatment. These can include:

  • The number of aligners you will need to wear throughout treatment
  • Any pre-Invisalign dental work (i.e., tooth extraction, periodontal therapy)
  • Your age
  • The severity of your case
  • The retainer you will need to wear when finished with Invisalign
