Dr. Maurice Firouz and the professional team at Firouz Orthodontics have developed a list of thoughtful questions that help their patients decide if orthodontic treatment with Invisalign in Brentwood CA is appropriate for them.
1. Am I responsible? To be treated effectively with Invisalign, you need to accept the responsibility of caring for the trays. Not only do the Invisalign trays need to be kept clean, but you need to keep track of them while they are not being worn. Because Invisalign is removable and clear, they can easily be misplaced or accidentally thrown out. It is important to remember also to put them back in your mouth after eating or brushing. A new set of tray aligners is exchanged for the old set in approximately two-week intervals as part of the course of treatment.
2. How much work do I need done? Typically, Invisalign is recommended by orthodontists to patients who do not need extensive or complex orthodontic treatment. Dr. Maurice Firouz prescribes Invisalign for fixing such conditions as over- or under-bites, overcrowding, gapped teeth, or those with general spacing issues. Raising and lowering teeth or large tooth spacings are typically more effectively treated with traditional braces.
3. Will Invisalign fit into my lifestyle? Invisalign is virtually invisible to the casual observer, so patients can continue to smile big while being treated with Invisalign. Because Invisalign is clear and removable, you can continue to eat the foods you love, unlike the limitations on eating certain foods often associated with treatment with traditional braces. Invisalign does need to be removed for eating, brushing, flossing, and to clean the trays.
4. What will Invisalign cost in time and money? The course of treatment with Invisalign is often shorter than treatment with traditional braces. Invisalign treatment typically lasts approximately a year and a half, depending on the patient. Appointments with Dr. Maurice Firouz while being treated with Invisalign may be more frequent than with traditional braces, but check-ups are short. Traditional braces typically cost between $1,200 and $3,000 in brentwood ca Treatment with Invisalign typically costs approximately $3,000 to $5,000. Firouz Orthodontics can help their patients manage by offering to spread the costs of their treatment over time.
