Smile Confidently with Invisalign, the Clear and Convenient Alternative to Braces
When teeth are crowded or misaligned, it can be challenging to brush and floss properly, and this may lead to tooth decay and gum disease. In addition, crooked teeth can put undue stress on the jaw, causing pain and dysfunction.
Orthodontic treatments such as metal braces can help straighten the teeth. They are effective in improving the alignment of teeth. However, they are quite noticeable and uncomfortable to wear.
If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional braces that is less visible and more comfortable, AP Dental offers Invisalign. Invisalign is a great alternative that uses a series of transparent, customised, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Invisalign will gradually move your teeth into the desired position, and since they are transparent, people will hardly notice you’re wearing them. AP Dental offers Invisalign treatment so you can get the straighter smile you’ve always wanted without sacrificing your appearance or lifestyle.
Dental Problems You Need an Invisalign
Crooked teeth may cause difficulty in chewing and cleaning the teeth. Several health risks are associated with crooked teeth, including tooth decay, cracked teeth, and chronic headaches.
Diastema, commonly called tooth gaps, are spaces that form between the teeth. Tooth gaps can be caused by various factors, including incorrect jaw alignment, thumb sucking, and genetics.
Bite problems, or malocclusion, occur when teeth don't meet adequately or don't meet at all. Common bite problems include overbites (top teeth overlap bottom teeth), underbites (bottom teeth are too far forward), open bites (when the front teeth don’t touch), and crossbites (when the teeth don't line up correctly).

Frequently Asked Questions about Invisalign
If your teeth are mild to moderately crowded, and you want to avoid having metal braces, you may be a candidate for Invisalign. Invisalign is especially suitable for older teens and adults whose jaws have already stopped growing. It is more likely that these individuals will dedicate themselves to wearing Invisalign for the recommended 20–22 hours per day.
Schedule an Invisalign consultation at AP Dental so we can help you determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment that gradually shifts teeth into the correct position. It uses a series of custom-made, clear aligners that you have to wear for 20–22 hours a day. Each aligner is worn for about two to four weeks before being replaced by the next trays in the series. The positioning of your teeth will gradually improve as you progress through treatment.
The Invisalign system is virtually invisible, so most people won’t even know you’re undergoing treatment. In addition, you don’t need to worry about brackets or wires. Treatment with Invisalign is comfortable and convenient. It can be an excellent option for adults and teens who want a straighter smile.
A popular orthodontic treatment option, Invisalign is suitable for people who want to straighten their teeth without using traditional metal braces. It provides several advantages:
- Invisalign is much more discreet since the aligners are nearly invisible. It won’t affect your appearance as much as braces, and most people won’t even know you’re wearing them.
- Invisalign treatment also allows you to eat whatever you want. There are no food restrictions like there are with metal braces. Since they are removable, you can remove them before eating.
- Invisalign is removable for easy cleaning. You won’t have to deal with the hassle of brushing around brackets and wires. All you need to do is take them out and brush and floss as usual.
- Invisalign gradually moves teeth into place. This reduces discomfort and makes the treatment process more tolerable.
A medical-grade polyurethane resin is used in the construction of Invisalign. This makes Invisalign a safe choice for straightening teeth. It is much more comfortable to wear since there are no metal wires or brackets. Also, you won’t get any painful nicks or cuts in your mouth since it is smooth and won’t irritate your gums or cheeks. All of these factors combined make Invisalign a safe and comfortable option.
Taking care of your Invisalign is easy! Just remember to remove them before eating or drinking anything other than water. It’s essential to clean them regularly to avoid bacteria buildup and keep your teeth clean. To clean your aligners, rinse them with water every night and brush them lightly with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Be sure to rinse well after brushing. You can also use Invisalign Cleaning Crystals once a week for a deeper clean. Soak your aligners in the crystals for 15–30 minutes, then brush and rinse as usual.
Upon completing your Invisalign treatment, you will need to wear retainers to keep your teeth in their positions and prevent relapse. Initially, your retainer should be worn full-time, meaning 24 hours a day, except when eating and cleaning them. Your dentist will instruct you when you can switch to wearing it only at night. The following are some important things to remember when caring for your retainers:
- You should not eat while wearing a retainer. Remove your retainers while eating and replace them afterwards to avoid food getting stuck.
- Be careful not to drink hot beverages with your retainer in your mouth because it can warp or break.
- Do not put your retainers back in your mouth without rinsing them.
Invisalign treatment costs vary depending on the severity and case type. In general, though, Invisalign treatment starts at around $4,000. You may schedule an Invisalign consultation at AP Dental for an accurate treatment cost.
Many private health insurance providers will cover orthodontic treatment. This includes braces, aligners, and retainers as part of their “Extras” coverage. If your dental health insurance policy includes orthodontic treatment, Invisalign may be covered. Please contact your insurance company to find out if Invisalign treatment is included in your policy.
