For the month of May, Town and Country Family Dentistry is offering Invisalign adult braces for only $3,995 (regularly $5,000). In honor of our promotion, we wanted to help our patients with a list of questions to be sure to ask when considering Invisalign aligner therapy for a straighter smile! While it can be frustrating to hear “it depends” when it comes to braces, it’s important to realize that your smile is as individual as you are, so that’s why your dental care will be, too.
How does Invisalign work to straighten my teeth?
Dr. Mandefro will supply you with a series of custom aligners. With each aligner, the position of the tooth will be slightly altered. Our dental office maps out your plan specifically for your individual case. When the aligners are placed, the teeth will shift from their current position until they are gradually in their new home. After approximately two weeks, you will use a new set of aligners.
How long will my treatment last?
This will vary from person to person depending on the state of your smile. Typically, this will take about 12 months for an adult.
How often do I visit Dr. Mandefro’s office in Chesterfield?
You will need to visit our office about every four to six weeks. This will depend on the situation, of course.
How much will it cost, and are there payment options?
If you book in May 2015, Town and Country will offer Invisalign for only $3995 – over $1000 off our regular price. We also offer financing by CareCredit and Lending Club.
What restrictions will I have when it comes to eating?
Because aligners are removable, there are no restrictions to your diet! In fact, you actually need to remove them to eat and drink. It is important that you brush your teeth after meals and sugary beverages. You just have to remember to wear them for 20-22 hours per day to be most effective.
How will wearing Invisalign aligners affect my speech?
You may notice a temporary affect to your speech, such as a slight lisp for the first few days. This is just your mouth getting used to the aligners and should go away quickly.
Still have questions about Invisalign?
Give us a call, that’s what we’re here for! We’d be happy to set up a consultation and give you the smile you’ve been dreaming of.
