Are you ready to choose the clear choice for a straight smile? Invisalign in Flushing can correct your bite and alignment concerns using a series of transparent plastic aligners. The FDA-approved treatment is a convenient and discreet solution to improve your oral health and your confidence. While you are excited to start your journey to a straight smile, you have one concern—the cost of the aligners. There is no need to worry. Invisalign allows you to invest in your oral health to lower your long-term dental costs.
There is no set price tag for Invisalign because the amount you pay is based on your individual treatment plan, such as how many aligners are needed. To help lower your out-of-pocket expense, many dental insurances now cover a portion of their cost. You can use third-party financing through CareCredit to pay any remaining balance.
Although it is often thought orthodontics only offer cosmetic benefits, this could not be further from the truth. By aligning your teeth, you improve your oral health to decrease your overall dental costs.
Misaligned teeth, such as those that are overcrowded, are more difficult to clean. As a result, you have a heightened risk of tooth decay and gum disease. By aligning your teeth, your oral hygiene routine is more effective to protect your smile from preventable issues to reduce the need for a costly treatment in the future.
It is estimated 1 in 6 Americans suffer a dental emergency every year. Often, it results from a broken, knocked out, or dislodged tooth from trauma to the mouth or face. When you have rotated or protruding teeth, you have an increased risk of a dental emergency because they take the brunt of the force during an injury to the face. You can reduce the likeliness for a traumatic oral health injury by correcting the alignment problems.
Often, misaligned teeth can create a poorly aligned bite. This can place a strain on your temporomandibular joint, which connects your jaw to your skull of either side of your face. This can lead to inflammation of the joint, resulting in a TMJ disorder which makes it function incorrectly. This can make it difficult to perform simple tasks, like chewing, yawning, and speaking while you live with pain. Correcting your bite takes the stress of the joint to improve its mobility.
If you do not love your smile, you likely avoid certain social settings, hide your mouth in pictures, or feel limited in your career potential due to the imperfections. You can revamp your confidence by getting a straight, attractive smile you will want to show off.
