A popular alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign® is 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.

Kellyn Hodges Orthodontics can use Invisalign to help teens and adults with crooked teeth throughout Philadelphia, PA.

How Invisalign Works: The Basics Clear, Comfortable, and Convenient Orthodontic Treatment

The Invisalign system uses clear aligner trays that are custom-fabricated from BPA-free plastic. There are no brackets, wires, or bands like traditional braces.

Patients wear their aligners for about 22 hours a day, only removing the aligners to brush their teeth, floss, and eat. After about two weeks, Invisalign patients will discard their current aligners and move on to the next clear aligners in their treatment plan.

Invisalign results and treatment times are comparable to those of traditional braces. At the end of Invisalign treatment, patients can expect to have straight teeth, beautiful smiles, and improved oral health.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

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.

During your free consultation at one of our offices in Greater Philadelphia, we can provide a custom Invisalign price quote. This will take your treatment plan into account and the need for any preparatory procedures before we proceed with fabricating your aligners.

Financing Is Available to Keep Invisalign Prices Affordable

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, CareCredit 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.

These financing plans are available at our offices in Bala Cynwyd, Bensalem, and Montgomeryville, PA. This allows more people in Greater Philadelphia to get Invisalign treatment and experience the many benefits of orthodontics with invisible aligners.

Ashley Schea - 5-Star Google Review

Who Is a Candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment can correct many of the same orthodontic issues as braces. That means we can use aligners to treat many patients in Greater Philadelphia looking to straighten their smiles. The Invisalign clear aligner system can effectively treat these common issues:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • 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.

Invisalign Is a Great Option for Teenage and Adult Patients

You're never too old for Invisalign. We treat many teens and adults at our offices in Bala Cynwyd, Bensalem, and Montgomeryville, PA.

Invisalign for Teens

Teens love Invisalign aligners since they are difficult to detect, even when people are nearby. Swapping the old aligners for the next set of custom-made aligners every two weeks is convenient as well.

Invisalign aligners help teens get the treatment they need without feeling self-conscious about having traditional metal braces.

Invisalign for Adults

Adults appreciate Invisalign aligners since they correct crooked teeth invisibly. Few people will notice the aligners while you're at work or attending a social gathering.

Many adults are pleased that Invisalign provides the orthodontic care they missed out on earlier in life.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces Comparing Orthodontic 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 throughout the Philadelphia area can depend on Dr. Hodges and her staff to conduct a close analysis of your candidacy and goals. Here is how Invisalign compares to braces:
  • Overall Treatment Time

    Although it is often quicker than braces, Invisalign treatment times can span several months or more. If you are looking for faster orthodontic treatment, our dentists can provide fast-acting adult orthodontics plans that can achieve full tooth movement in a matter of months. This is especially popular among patients with a wedding or other major milestone on the horizon.
  • Candidacy for Treatment

    Invisalign is popular with people of different age groups, but it is not right for everyone. Severe overbites or other forms of pronounced malocclusion are 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.
  • Personal Commitment to the Process

    Braces and Invisalign come with their own unique requirements. With Invisalign, you must wear your trays 20-22 hours a day, and you must take care not to misplace your aligners. Although many would agree that it is more difficult to clean your teeth when wearing braces, certain patients may be better off with an orthodontic solution that can't be lost or forgotten.
  • Adjustment Periods During Treatment

    Invisalign's custom-made aligners apply gentle pressure to your teeth, so they may feel a bit strange during the first few days. There is also discomfort when patients get their braces adjustment, and it is typically considered more pronounced than the discomfort of switching to new Invisalign trays. Both Invisalign and braces patients will receive instructions for minimizing pain during these adjustment periods.

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 Greater Philadelphia 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.

The Invisalign Process What Happens During Clear Aligner Treatment

An attractive alternative to traditional metal braces, Invisalign combines the orthodontic effects of braces with cosmetic benefits thanks to a series of clear, removable aligners.
An attractive alternative to traditional metal braces, Invisalign combines the orthodontic effects of braces with cosmetic benefits thanks to a series of clear, removable aligners.

Impressions and Treatment Planning

The clear aligners are created by taking dental impressions, clinical photographs, and X-rays of the patient's teeth. This information is then sent to Align Technology. There, a computer creates a 3D model that allows technicians to create a series of clear aligners that will slowly move the teeth over time into the prescribed position that your orthodontist deems appropriate.

Creating Your Aligners

Once your dentist or orthodontist at our Philadelphia-area offices approves the treatment plan, a plastic resin aligner is created for each stage of the Invisalign treatment process. While numbers vary depending on the case, the average Invisalign patient will receive between 18 and 30 different clear aligners over a period of about one year.

Daily Care

Invisalign patients must be sure to wear their aligners at least 20 to 22 hours a day, removing them only to eat, drink, or clean your teeth. Brush twice a day, floss at least once per day, and rinse your mouthpiece in cool water before placing it back in your mouth. Hot water could warp your mouthpiece.

Periodic Checkups

During the treatment process, you'll stop by the office for periodic check-ins with our team. This is an opportunity for us to monitor your progress. It's also an opportunity for you to raise any concerns you may have and touch base with us about your dental health.

Making Final Adjustments

After you've finished wearing your final aligner, we may do a few last adjustments to make sure your teeth are as straight as they can be. If you've expressed interest in cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening to achieve a total smile makeover, those can be incorporated into these last touchups.

How to Maintain Your Invisalign Results

Similar to traditional braces or any orthodontic procedure, a retainer must be worn following Invisalign treatment. This will help prevent your teeth from shifting out of alignment over time.

Invisalign patients will only have to wear their retainers while they are asleep, not while going about their normal daily routine.

We recommend patients clean their retainers regularly to help keep them free of bacteria and sanitary. Patients should also continue to brush and floss regularly in order to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

If you misplace or break your retainer, be sure to contact our office as soon as possible. We will make sure you receive a replacement retainer so you can keep your smile looking its best.

Invisalign FAQ

What should I do if I lose an Invisalign aligner?

If you lose your current aligner, go ahead and wear the previous aligner or the next aligner in your treatment plan (whichever fits better). Contact our offices in the Philadelphia area to find out if you need a new set of trays to replace the aligners you lost.

How does the Invisalign system compare to other clear aligner options like ClearCorrect or SmileDirectClub?

Invisalign was founded in 1997 and is the most well-known clear aligner brand on the market today. While people have achieved success with systems like ClearCorrect™, we stand by using Invisalign because of how reputable and effective it's been over the years. We should also note that SmileDirectClub ceased operations at the end of 2023. If you were wearing SmileDirectClub aligners, please reach out to us and we can get you back on track.

My teeth look straight, but my dentist said I need Invisalign. Why is that?

Front teeth that seem fine don't tell the whole story about your overall tooth alignment. Minor malocclusion of the front teeth can still cause problems, as can crooked molars, premolars, and canines. There might also be a problem with the way your upper and lower teeth fit together. A dentist or orthodontist can let you know if you need teeth straightening and if Invisalign aligners are right for you.

Can my Invisalign aligner be used as a mouth guard for teeth grinding?

No. While the BPA-free plastic used in the aligner trays is relatively durable, an Invisalign aligner is not designed with the same strength or durability as a dedicated night guard worn by people with bruxism. If you grind your teeth at night, we can discuss your Invisalign treatment plan as part of the consultation process.

Have an Invisalign Question We Didn't Answer? Contact Our Offices in the Philadelphia Area

There are many aspects of Invisalign we didn't get a chance to cover here. If you've wondered about clear aligners and whether they're right for you, we can evaluate your candidacy and provide additional info on cost, financing, insurance, and more.

We've got your new smile covered from the first visit to our office to the use of post-treatment Invisalign retainers. To get the answers you're looking for, contact our Greater Philadelphia orthodontic practice.
