Fortunately, the team at Foley Orthodontics is here to help you sort Invisalign fact from fiction, so you know whether this treatment plan is right for you. Keep reading to learn more!

Is it hard to take care of Invisalign clear aligners? 

Fiction: Invisalign is low-maintenance and reliable. 

With the advanced technology and cutting-edge tools that Invisalign uses, some of our patients are concerned that Invisalign requires more work than traditional braces. Maybe you’re worried that the plastic trays are harder to clean or may break more easily. Fortunately, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Invisalign clear aligners from Foley Orthodontics are even easier to take care of than traditional metal braces! Metal braces are fixed to your teeth for the duration of treatment, but Invisalign aligners are removable, which makes them easier to clean. Plus, since you take them out to eat, play sports, or practice your instrument, these activities don’t put your treatment at risk like they might with traditional braces. 

Is Invisalign comfortable? 

Fact: Invisalign is one of the most comfortable treatment plans available. 

Like many other patients, you may have heard that Invisalign clear aligners are a painful way to straighten your smile. Luckily, the idea that Invisalign is excessively uncomfortable is a myth! From start to finish, Invisalign clear aligners are one of our most comfortable treatment options. 

Unlike the bulky brackets and wires of traditional braces, Invisalign is made of a series of clear plastic trays that won’t dig into your lips or cheeks. Additionally, Dr. Foley customizes each set of trays for such a snug fit you may not even feel like you’re wearing aligners! 

What’s more is that with Invisalign, you won’t have to worry about certain foods causing a bracket to pop loose, and you won’t have to change your diet. Invisalign aligners from Foley Orthodontics are removable, so you can eat, sleep, play, and smile in peace. 

Is Invisalign a good option for adult patients? 

Fact: Invisalign works for children, teens, and adults. 

One of the myths surrounding Invisalign treatment is that it is only for teens, but Foley Orthodontics’s Invisalign treatment program works for teens and adults alike. Our Invisalign clear aligners are perfect for adults looking for a more discreet treatment option than traditional metal braces. The transparent trays are hardly noticeable, so only you and Dr. Foley will know you’re undergoing treatment.

Is Invisalign expensive? 

Fiction: Payment plans make Invisalign an affordable treatment option. 

It’s common for patients to hear words like “smart” and “pro”  and worry that the cutting-edge treatment plan they desire is too good to be cheap. We’re here to let you know that even though Invisalign is one of the best treatment plans technology can offer, that doesn’t mean it is too expensive. 

At Foley Orthodontics, we believe that you deserve the treatment option that is right for you to get the smile of your dreams. If you’re looking to get Invisalign, but are worried about how you’ll pay for it, worry no more! Our office accepts most major credit cards and insurance plans. We also offer flexible payment options that make your Invisalign treatment an affordable reality.
