Correcting 5 Myths About Invisalign Treatment

If you are considering Invisalign to improve the aesthetics of your smile it is important to know the facts about the process. Deciding which orthodontic treatment is best for you is a decision financially and for the health of your smile. Dr. Grussmark is dedicated to providing you with all the information you need to make an educated decision that’s best for your smile.
Here at our Coral Gables office, we are dedicated to helping patients love their smiles and improve self-confidence with Invisalign treatment. However, separating the facts from the myths is important to making the right choice for your orthodontic treatment.

The Truth About Invisalign Treatment

Some of the myths surrounding Invisalign treatment deter patients from seeking treatment. Dr. Grussmark is dedicated to correcting these statements. Some of the false statements that have been made include:

  • Invisalign is too Expensive: When compared to the cost of traditional metal braces the cost usually comes out to be about the same. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Grussmark to learn more about the cost and financing options available for your Invisalign.
  • Invisalign is Only For Minor Changes: Contrary to popular beliefs Invisalign can be used to correct a wide range of alignment issues including crooked teeth, overbites, and underbites. Dr. Grussmark will be able to give a better assessment of whether Invisalign is right for you.
  • Invisalign Aligners are Painful: While any kind of orthodontic treatment that involves shifting your teeth will cause discomfort, Invisalign is more comfortable than traditional braces thanks to the metal free, smooth aligners.
  • Invisalign Treatment is Longer: Invisalign won’t take any longer than traditional braces. During a consultation with our Coral Gables dentist, the time frame of the orthodontic treatment will be discussed to help you make a choice about the best treatment for you.

Invisalign Aligners Make You Talk Funny: While the aligners might cause you to talk with a slight lisp, this often disappears after you adjust to the appliance. Thanks to the clear aligners most people won’t be able to tell you are even wearing your Invisalign.
