Invisalign Can Improve Your Oral and Overall Health
While the goal of orthodontic treatment is to help patients achieve a straighter smile, Invisalign offers so much more. After treatment, patients may find that brushing and flossing are easier, which means their risk of developing decay and gum disease will be lower. By treating malocclusion, Invisalign treatment can reduce the symptoms that accompany a misaligned bite, such as headaches and excessive wear on certain teeth. Lastly, patients can expect to enjoy more self-confidence thanks to their new smiles.
During a personal consultation at Kellyn Hodges Orthodontics, serving communities throughout the Philadelphia area, one of our orthodontists will evaluate your concerns and help you weigh the advantages of Invisalign versus braces to determine if the option is right for you.
Clear, Comfortable, and Convenient
A popular alternative to braces, Invisalign aligners are designed to be as comfortable and inconspicuous as possible. More and more patients are asking their dentists if Invisalign treatment is a good option for their dental health needs.
What Is Invisalign Teen
Who Is a Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment can correct many of the same orthodontic issues as braces. For patients in the Philadelphia area looking to straighten their smile, this system can effectively treat:
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Open bites
Invisalign treatment may not be appropriate for all patients. Those with severe or complex malocclusion may be better candidates for more conventional orthodontic treatments such as braces. We offer a range of options and are confident we can help you achieve your goals.
Is Invisalign for Me? Consult with an Orthodontist
For many patients, Invisalign's removable aligners provide significant advantages over traditional braces. That's why so many adults and teens in the greater Philadelphia area are asking their dentists if it's an ideal treatment for their needs. Dr. Hodges and her team can assess your dental health and tell you if you are a good candidate for Invisalign.

Invisalign Is Affordable
Given the many attractive benefits of Invisalign, you may be thinking this solution is prohibitively expensive. The good news is that in most instances, Invisalign costs are comparable to that of traditional braces. And just like braces, most insurance plans contribute to at least a portion of the cost of Invisalign.
If you are uninsured, or if you need help budgeting or covering any out-of-pocket expenses associated with Invisalign, we work with CareCredit® financing to make this solution accessible to you. Based on your credit score, this lender can provide you with an interest-free or low-interest payment plan that allows you to experience the benefits of Invisalign without straining your finances.
Once you have met with one of the doctors at one of our Philadelphia area locations (Bala Cynwyd, Bensalem, and Montgomeryville) during a free consultation, we can provide you with a cost estimate before you commit to treatment.
The Invisalign Process
Your Role in Maintaining Your Invisalign Results
Similar to traditional braces or any orthodontics, a retainer must be worn following Invisalign treatment. You will only have to wear your retainers overnight, which has two benefits: the retainers should not only keep your smile straight but they can also protect your teeth against the effects of bruxism.
"I was in amazing hands."

Invisalign vs. Other Treatments
The Invisalign system offers a wide range of benefits compared to metal braces, but it's not the best choice in every case. Patients in Bala Cynwyd, Bensalem, and throughout the Philadelphia area can depend on Dr. Hodges and her staff to conduct a close analysis of your candidacy and goals to determine the best way to realize your goals and meet your needs. Here is how Invisalign compares to other treatments in a few important ways:
Although it is often quicker than braces, Invisalign can span several months or more. If you are looking for faster treatment that can correct cosmetic misalignment in your most visible teeth, our dentists can provide special expedited treatment plans that can help you achieve attractive tooth movement in a matter of months. This makes fast-acting adult orthodontics plans especially popular among patients with a wedding or other milestone on the horizon. These plans can be achieved with either traditional braces or Invisalign.
Advancements in Invisalign's aligner technology have given more people the chance to utilize this popular treatment plan, but it is not right for everyone. Severe malocclusion and severely rotated or tipped teeth are generally best treated with traditional braces. We want to straighten your smile in the simplest and most convenient way possible, but we won't recommend a treatment that isn't capable of producing the results you deserve.
Braces and Invisalign come with their own unique requirements when it comes to your commitment to a daily oral hygiene routine. With Invisalign, you must wear your trays for at least 20 to 22 hours a day, and you must take care not to misplace them. Although many would agree that it is more difficult to clean your teeth when wearing braces, certain patients may be better off with a solution that can't be lost or forgotten.
If you are unsure whether your child will be a responsible Invisalign patient, Invisalign Teen has unique features that can indicate that they are being worn for the right amount of time each day. Plus, the plan also includes extra mouthpieces in case they are lost at any point in the treatment timeline.
Invisalign's custom-made trays are designed to apply gentle pressure to your teeth, so they may feel a bit strange during the first few days when you begin wearing the next set in the series. There is also initial discomfort involved when patients undergo regular braces adjustment, and it is typically considered more pronounced than the discomfort of Invisalign. Regardless of which option Dr. Hodges recommends, you will receive instructions for minimizing discomfort during these adjustment periods.
