Invisalign® Braces Cost

As of 2017 Invisalign® cost starts at $2,500. However, the average cost is between $3,000 and $4,800. A simple Invisalign® case (a minor teeth movement case that requires few months of treatment) costs about $2,800 or slightly less and $3,000-$4,800 for a full case in which the majority of teeth are involved. Invisalign® treatment can last as little as 3 months to up to one year or more depending on the involvement of your bite alignment and crooked teeth condition. In general, our cost of Invisalign® is actually quite comparable with wire braces.

We are a certified and licensed Invisalign® provider. The most obvious advantage of Invisalign® orthodontic treatment is cosmetic. The aligners are transparent, therefore much more difficult to notice than traditional wire braces. This makes Invisalign® popular among adults who want to straighten their teeth without the look of traditional metal braces.

In addition, the aligners are much more comfortable than braces. Due to the removable nature of the aligners, food can be consumed without the discomfort of metallic braces. Clinically, aligners avoid many of the side effects of traditional wire braces in most cases.

Invisalign® Braces Treatment Variations

There are many ways of treating patients depending on budget, preferences, medical conditions, doctor’s opinion, bone quality, infections, treatment lengths.

Invisalign® Braces FAQ

This is a new innovative type of orthodontic treatment. These invisible, comfortable and removable type of braces where released for public use in 1997. You will be provided with a set of trays that will adjust and correct your orthodontic concern while they are worn. Invisalign has a high success rate when used as instructed.

The 2 biggest differences between normal braces and Invisalign is the appearance and the follow-up appointments. Invisalign is a tray made of a clear BPA-free plastic therefore not very noticeable, compared to the normal metal or ceramic braces where the nodules are quiet visible. The second and most convenient difference is that with Invisalign® treatment no regular follow-up appointments are needed unlike traditional braces you would need to return for adjustment every 6-8 weeks.

Invisalign® works by moving your teeth with a set of aligners. An impression and mold is made before your treatment begins. With the help of our experience orthodontists and modifying the digital model to the desired result a set of aligners are made per tray that will systematically move the teeth to its desired position. Depending on the severity of the case will depend on the amount of aligners that are made and needed.

Invisalign® is a wonderful treatment for anyone with less severe orthodontic concerns. For example in cases of an extreme over or under bite where a head gear is needed, Invisalign may not be recommended. These extreme cases indicate a more intense situation corrects the position of the jaw not just the repositioning of the teeth.

Here are a few examples of a good candidate for Invisalign®:

  • Mildly crooked teeth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Serious malocclusion (imperfect positioning of teeth when mouth closed)
  • Mild overbites (top row of teeth reach down over the bottom row)
  • Mild under bites (bottom row of teeth reach up over the top row)
  • Wide gaps in teeth
  • Overcrowding of teeth
  • Open bites
  • Crossbites (upper teeth on sides of mouth overlap lower row of teeth or vice versa)
  • Excessive overjet’s (central tooth overlap)

As the impressions will need to be taken, checked and sent to Invisalign directly a stay of 5 days in needed making sure Invisalign has all the necessary information to go ahead and produce your trays. Once they are ready they will be sent to you back home and you can begin you orthodontic treatment.

There are many benefits to an Invisalign treatment, to name a few:

  • They are flexible therefore resulting in less irritation that are known to be caused by traditional braces such as cutting skin on your inner cheek or lip area.
  • As they are clear it adds to the self-confidence that most folks experience when having metal braces.
  • Most foods can be enjoyed due the fact that the trays are removed while eating and then replaced when finished.
  • You do not have to have monthly adjustments.

It is recommended to return at least half way through your treatment to make sure the alignments and adjustments are working successfully.

Oral hygiene is extremely important during your treatment making sure no food particles are trapped. Every morning and evening remove your trays and clean both your teeth and trays thoroughly. Normal dental brushing and flossing is essential before placing the trays back to ensure your natural teeth and gums are clean and healthy. The best way to make sure your Invisalign trays are as clean as possible is to soak them in either a denture cleaner or Invisalign cleaning crystals. After they are finished soaking, use an extra toothbrush that you don’t use for your teeth to brush off any lingering plaque or food particles and then rinse the trays before placing them back in your mouth.

Invisalign® Braces Before Coming to Cancun Pre-Ops

Inform yourself on steps to take for a successful outcome, please read the full instructions, Cancun Dental Specialists Thanks you in Advanced for being an informed patient

3 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

Smoking and Dental Implants don’t go together. Why did you lose your teeth/tooth in the first place. We know smoking can be difficult to quit but we insist that patients stop smoking at least 3 weeks prior to their Dental Implants. In rare cases we might ask you to quit sooner. Smoking can interfere with healing by constricting and decreasing blood flow all over the body which may prevent the wound from healing properly. Do not resume smoking after surgery until you are given permission by our Dental Surgeon.

3 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

We know you will be on vacation and the all-inclusive bar might be tempting. Please try and stay away from alcohol consumption for a minimum of 5 days prior to your procedure. Alcohol causes increased bleeding, increases the chances of infection, depresses immune functions and may interfere with wound healing.

3 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY (over-the-counter and prescribed)

Please check with your Physician about suspending any medication prior to arrival.

You will be instructed by your surgeon or patient counselor to temporarily discontinue certain medications in the weeks ahead.

Drugs containing ASPIRIN, SALICYLATES, SALICYLAMIDES or IBUPROFEN should be avoided for at least two weeks before and after surgery. Brand names are:

  • Aleve
  • A.S.A. Enseals
  • Alka Seltzer Cold Medicine
  • Alka Seltzer Effervescent Tablets
  • Advil Anacin with ASA
  • Anaprox

3 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

It is important that you maintain a healthy diet. You will be on a soft mechanical diet or some form of a modified diet tailored to your surgery. It is important that you follow these instructions! It is a good idea to stock up on protein supplements like BOOST or Ensure. Various softer foods like well cooked pastas, eggs, soup/broths, and yogurt are also good ideas. We will provide you with a list of dietary suggestions in your post-op packet as well.

2 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

  • All Aspirin and Ibuprofen products including the drugs listed on the enclosed insert.
  • All anti-inflammatory drugs (i.e. Ibuprofen) used for arthritis. (Please consult your physician prior to discontinuing).
  • All anti-coagulants.
  • Vitamin E taken internally.
  • If a medication is in question, call our office nurse.
IMPORTANT! These products may cause excessive bleeding.

2 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

  • Take a Multivitamin tablet daily. Most multivitamins contain some form of vitamin E, however this is acceptable to take prior to surgery. We do ask that you refrain from taking additional vitamin E.
  • Take Vitamin A – 8,000-10,000 units, twice a day. This has well-documented beneficial effects on surgical healing and will also fuel your immune system.
  • Take Vitamin C – 1,000 mg., twice a day. This is essential for collagen synthesis, which is part of normal wound healing. Your need for Vitamin C will increase after surgery.
  • Take Bromelain – 1,000 mg., twice a day. (Pineapple enzyme – from a health food store) This helps to relieve the swelling associated with surgery. Bromelain: This anti-inflammatory promotes healing.

1 week BEFORE until 2 weeks AFTER procedure

  • Eat healthy, regular meals.
  • Eat 2 fruits and 3 green vegetables daily (per diet instructions).
  • Eat a small amount of protein at each meal.
IMPORTANT! Your diet can aid healing remarkably and reduce swelling and pain!

1 WEEK BEFORE SURGERY

    • You may begin taking Arnica Montana
    • Take every 8 hours as directed and continue for 10 days.
    • Continue taking Bromelain as directed every 12 hours between meals. This anti-inflammatory promotes healing. As an alternative, eat fresh pineapple.

Arnica: Arnica Montana is an herb that grows wild in the Swiss Alps. Also known simply as “Arnica,” it’s been used in Europe for hundreds of years for the reduction of bruising and swelling and to shorten the recovery period after a physical trauma such as an accident, surgery or injury.

Invisalign® Braces Post Op Instructions

Please select a topic in order to see details.

Standards of good oral hygiene are critical for the success and functionality of the implants and restoration. The best way to prevent infection and ensure healing is to keep your mouth clean. Clean your mouth thoroughly after each meal beginning the day after surgery. Use a soft bristle toothbrush and toothpaste after meals and at bedtime. Use of a dental waterpik is highly recommended to irrigate underneath the denture to flush out debris.

Minimal bleeding is expected after this implant procedure. The best way to stop bleeding is to place a damp piece of gauze in the mouth and gently bite for 30 minutes. Rest quietly with your head elevated. If bleeding continues, use gauze for an additional 30 minutes. Pink or blood-tinged saliva may be seen for 2-3 days following the surgery and does not indicate a problem. Suture material may last 2 to 3 weeks and should be left alone. You will be asked to return to the office for a 2 week follow-up appointment. Any sutures remaining at that time may be removed at the surgeon’s discretion. Do not pull or cut the sutures yourself.

Swelling is the body’s normal reaction to surgery and healing. The swelling will not become apparent until 24 hours after surgery and will not reach its peak for 2-3 days. After this time, the swelling should decrease but may persist for 7-10 days. Swelling may be minimized by the immediate use of ice packs. Apply the ice packs to the outside of the face 20 minutes on and then 20 minutes off while awake for the first 24 hours.

Unfortunately, most oral surgery is accompanied by some degree of discomfort. If you do not have an allergy to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil) we recommend taking this prior to the local anesthetic wearing off. More severe pain may require a narcotic pain medication. Narcotic pain medication will make you drowsy, do not drive or operate mechanical machinery while taking the prescription. Alternate Ibuprofen (2 tablets / 200mg each) and the narcotic medication every two hours if needed. Once you feel like you can stop the narcotic, use Ibuprofen or Tylenol. You may also be prescribed an antibacterial mouth rinse which should be used twice daily in the first two weeks following implant surgery. Post-operative antibiotics should be taken as directed and always take entire course of the prescription. All medications should not exceed the recommended dosage.

NOTE: If you are taking PLAVIX or COUMADIN, do NOT take Ibuprofen or Aspirin products.

After General anesthetic or I.V. sedation, start with liquids. While numb, patients should avoid hot liquids or foods. Your food intake will be limited for the first few days, compensate for this by increasing your fluid intake. We recommend high protein shakes/smoothies (Ensure, Special K, etc.) as meal replacement supplements. Patients are restricted to a SOFT CHEW diet for the first 6 weeks… if food cannot be easily cut with a fork… DO NOT eat it!

For the first 48 hours you should rest and relax with no physical activity. After 48 hours, you may resume activity as tolerated.

Eat:

  • Jell-O
  • Pudding
  • Yogurt
  • Ice Cream
  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Cream of Wheat / Oatmeal
  • Soups
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Fish
  • Pasta
  • Pancakes
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Applesauce

Drink:

  • Water
  • Juice
  • Ice Chips
  • Popsicles
  • Smoothies / Protein Shakes
  • Milkshakes

Add Soft Foods When Numbness is Gone / Increase Diet as Tolerated

  • If the corners of your mouth are stretched, they may dry and crack. Your lips should be kept moist with an ointment such as Vaseline.
  • Sore throats and pain when swallowing are not uncommon. The muscles get swollen and the normal act of swallowing can become painful. This will subside in 2 to 3 days.
  • Stiffness of the jaw muscles may cause difficulty in opening your mouth for a few days. Do not force your mouth open. Massage the muscles and apply moist heat.
  • With upper jaw implant treatment, you may develop bleeding from the nose. This is usually a temporary finding and will not persist past 2 to 3 days. Avoid blowing your nose for several days.
  • An appointment with your general dentist may be needed within a few days of surgery to make any adjustments to your temporary denture.
  • Your case is individual as no two mouths are alike. Discuss all questions or concerns with your oral surgeon or implant coordinator.

Invisalign® Braces Contraindications

This treatment alternative basically has the same contraindications as all Implant based restorations, mainly in relation to the risks associated to surgical procedures. Even so, there are few absolute contraindications (e.g., recent myocardial infarction, stroke, cardiovascular surgery, and transplant; profound immunosuppression; radiotherapy or bisphosphonate use), the degree of disease-control being far more important than the nature of systemic disorder itself . Additionally, there are complications or behavioral aspects that may increase the treatment failure or complication rate, which should be acknowledged (e.g., diabetes, oral hygiene status, smoking, decreased frequency of using the dental services).

Using this specific treatment concept is limited to cases with severe ridge resorption in the anterior region of the jaws, in patients for whom extensive bone grafting procedures are not an option.

Absolute contraindications

Some serious general conditions make anesthesia, surgical procedures and the overall placement inadvisable.

  • Heart diseases affecting the valves, recent infarcts, severe cardiac insufficiency, cardiomyopathy
  • Active cancer, certain bone diseases (osteomalacia, Paget’s disease, brittle bones syndrome, etc.)
  • Certain immunological diseases, immunosuppressant treatments, clinical AIDS, awaiting an organ transplant
  • Certain mental diseases
  • Strongly irradiated jaw bones (radiotherapy treatment)
  • Treatments of osteoporosis or some cancers by bisphosphonates

Relative contraindications

Other situations will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Most often, dental implants can only be placed (with the greatest caution) after some preliminary treatments.

  • Diabetes (particularly insulin-dependent)
  • Angina pectoris (angina)
  • Significant consumption of tobacco
  • Certain mental diseases
  • Certain auto-immunes diseases
  • Drug and alcohol dependency
  • Pregnancy

Age

  • Children: not before the jaw bones have stopped growing (in general 17-18 years).
  • On the other hand, advanced age does not pose problems if the patient’s general condition is good.

Local contraindications

Some conditions or physiological changes, usually inside the mouth cavity, may temporarily prevent the placement of dental implants. Most of the times, these conditions can be remedied before the implants are inserted in the jawbone.

There is insufficient bone to support the implants or bone structure is inadequate (due to some chronic infections or other conditions). To ensure a good prognosis, a dental implant must be surrounded by healthy bone tissue.

Important anatomical structures such as the maxillary sinus, the inferior alveolar nerve (located inside the mandible), have an abnormal position that can interfere with the dental implants.

Lowering of the maxillary sinus

Adjunctive surgical procedures have to be performed before the placement of dental implants. These procedures aim to increase the amount of bone, so more bone is available to support the implants.

  • Some local diseases of the oral mucosa or alveolar bone can temporarily prevent the placement of dental implants until the conditions are treated.
  • Hypersensitivity or other allergic reactions ; rarely occurs.
  • Poor oral hygiene.
  • Bruxism or involuntary grinding of the teeth.

Invisalign® Braces Complications

Surgical Complications – Interim Prosthesis – Final Restoration

This treatment option basically has the same complications with any immediately loaded fixed implant prosthesis. Some aspects, mainly related to Sky Fast & Fixed particularities will be highlighted.

The acrylic interim prosthesis can fracture, this occurring mainly after the ten week period of recommendation of eating soft diet, when patients fell confident to chew harder food. If unmanaged, it can lead to implant failure, due to the alteration of the splinting process. Therefore, the interim prosthesis should not be reinforced, because it may mask the fracture and delay the patient’s addressing to the dental office.

If chipping of the ceramic of the definitive prosthesis occurs, this being a relative frequent complication, the interim prosthesis can be used for the time needed for laboratory repairing.

One important risk factor for all implant prosthesis, including this treatment option, that is linked to sometimes severe complications, is the correctness of the registration of maxillomandibular relations (respecting the coincidence of maximal intercuspal position and centric relation, and the functional vertical dimension of occlusion). Acknowledging that, in a dentate patient with posterior occluding teeth it is recommended their preservation until after the interim prosthesis is manufactured, in order to ensure a correct registration.
