Invisalign: Fact or Fiction

One of the best things about orthodontics today is just how many options there are to create a straighter, healthier smile. Far beyond traditional braces, Farrow & Dewbre Orthodontics have seen success in many of their patients who opt for simpler and less visible options, like Invisalign. 

Dr. Farrow and Dr. Dewbre are known in the Oklahoma City area for their thorough treatment plans, walking their patients through individualized recommendations for individual orthodontic needs. Often, the best choice is Invisalign retainers, which is why it’s important for patients to understand what Invisalign is and how it works. 

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a sequence of clear retainers that a patient wears over the course of months to slowly shift their teeth into alignment. This easy and nearly invisible alternative to braces has been around for about 20 years, and yet there are still many misconceptions about it. Let’s go through some of the common misconceptions about Invisalign so that you can be even more confident that you are making the best possible choice for your smile.  

Fiction: Invisalign takes longer than traditional braces

The truth is that everyone’s orthodontic journey is completely unique. Whether you have braces, Invisalign, or some other sort of orthodontic intervention, your timeline will be dependent upon your special case, as well as your own compliance with the process!

That being said, Invisalign is really effective way of straightening and aligning teeth, and with proper compliance, will take no longer than any other method! 

Fact: The Invisalign system is not difficult to maintain

All orthodontia requires a little TLC, but the rewards far outweigh the efforts! Invisalign is different from other orthodontia because it is removable, meaning you will need to remember to put them back in after eating and brushing. Practice makes perfect, and over time you will easily create a schedule that works for you. 

Fiction: Invisalign costs more than traditional treatment

When Invisalign first hit the market 20 years ago, it’s true that the price was a little steep. But over the years with so many orthodontists like Dr. Farrow and Dr. Dewbre recommending them to their patients, Invisalign is being used broadly, and the prices have decreased. Today the cost of Invisalign is comparable to standard braces!

As far as budgets go, Farrow & Dewbre Orthodontics accepts most major insurance plans in Oklahoma. Our staff will work with you and your budget to create payment plans for the remainder of the costs.
