Invisalign Myths

With all the treatment options available for misaligned teeth, it’s more important than ever to do your research, so that you can choose the best option to fit your needs. But even then, you’ll have to mull through myriad myths and falsities surrounding these treatments, which might make it difficult to know which treatment is truly right for you.

At Spring Valley Dental, we have the training and expertise to give you the real facts about these treatments. Prior to choosing a treatment like Invisalign, Dr. Boyer can walk you through the treatment without tripping over all the dental dogma that you might find in your personal research. Before calling about our Invisalign treatment, learn more about the commonplace myths that surround Invisalign.

Invisalign Myths

Below are some of the most common Invisalign myths that we hear around the Internet or by word of mouth. So we suspect you may have heard them, too:

  • Invisalign is only good for minor tooth movement: Not so! While Invisalign moves teeth differently than traditional braces, it can solve almost all the same alignment issues as alternative forms of braces.
  • Invisalign is too expensive: Dr. Boyer can work with you to personalize a treatment that is cost-effective for you. Invisalign doesn’t necessarily cost more than braces.
  • Appointments every two weeks: While you will have to change out your aligner trays every two weeks, you don’t necessarily need to see your dentist that often. It’s possible to plan out your treatment so that you don’t have to visit your dentist so often.
  • Invisalign creates impaired speech: Invisalign aligner trays are made from either digital scans or personalized impressions, so the trays should fit tightly and should not affect your speech.

Invisalign With Spring Valley Dental

At Spring Valley Dental, Dr. Boyer will work with you to personalize your Invisalign treatment, making it as time-efficient and cost-effective as possible. After your initial consultation and teeth impressions are complete, you will begin wearing your plastic aligner trays, switching to a new one every two weeks. The process can’t be accelerated too quickly, as your teeth need time to align correctly, but Dr. Boyer will make sure that you’re going through the process efficiently so as to make the treatment less expensive and less inconvenient for you.
