Invisalign

A clear solution to improving your smile at Harrisburg Smiles

It’s now easier than ever to get the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign gradually shifts gapped, crowded and misaligned teeth into place using clear aligners customized for you. With diligent wear, most treatment times take about a year. And with clear, plastic aligners, no one has to know about your treatment except for you. Schedule a consultation at Harrisburg Smiles to learn if this revolutionary treatment is right for you.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Choosing Invisalign has a number of great benefits. Invisalign is nearly invisible when worn, and will not affect your appearance or your ability to speak. Compared to braces, Invisalign is much more subtle. This makes it great for adults and young professionals who wish to avoid wearing traditional braces.

In addition, Invisalign is removable. You’ll take your aligners out when you eat and drink (except for water), so there are no dietary restrictions to worry about. You can continue to enjoy your favorite foods and drinks during treatment. In addition, you’ll take Invisalign out to brush and floss. This makes it easier for you to care for your teeth properly, compared to brushing and flossing around braces. Invisalign allows you to continue enjoying your hobbies as your aligners can also be removed to play contact sports and some musical instruments like brass and woodwinds.

Invisalign is more comfortable compared to braces. The pressure exerted on your teeth is more gentle and even, and there are no metal brackets or wires to poke and irritate your gums, cheeks, or lips. 

Once your teeth have been straightened with Invisalign, you’ll enjoy better overall oral health. Your teeth will have shifted to the ideal jaw and bite position for your mouth. This helps prevent premature wear and tear on your teeth, and makes it easier to brush and floss properly, preventing cavities and gum disease. 

With Invisalign, you do not need to spend as much time at the dentist. You’ll simply come in and see Dr. Kommineni or Dr. Cherukuri every 4-6 weeks for a brief checkup, and to get your next several sets of aligners.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

The cost of Invisalign is usually comparable to the price of traditional metal braces. However, the price of your Invisalign treatment will vary based on the length of your treatment, the extent of your needs for orthodontic correction, and a number of other factors.

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to provide an accurate cost estimate unless you come and see Dr. Sanath Kommineni or Dr. Naveen Cherukuri for a consultation. The team at Harrisburg Smiles will examine your mouth, and one of our dentists will discuss your needs for orthodontic correction to determine if Invisalign is a good choice for you. 

Should I Choose Invisalign or Braces?

This decision depends on the extent of your orthodontic problems. Invisalign is a great way to correct your smile and has a lot of benefits when compared to braces, but it is only recommended for patients with minor-to-moderate orthodontic issues like crooked or gapped teeth and minor bite problems.

If you have more serious orthodontic issues like a serious overbite, underbite, crossbite, or extremely crooked or crowded teeth, Invisalign may not be suitable. Traditional braces are far more versatile and effective in treating complex orthodontic cases.
