Invisalign®, the now popular invisible braces that use a series of clear plastic aligners are both comfortable and discreet and can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. Invisalign® produces outstanding results and is an excellent solution for the “grown-up” that should have had braces as a child. Dr. Schmieder, a preferred Invisalign provider, has undergone specialized training to provide this sought-after treatment to qualified teens and adults.
Teens and their self-esteem can be a common family problem. Invisalign Teen® commissioned a confidence survey and the results have confirmed that metal braces are a major cause of low self-esteem for teens.
Truths #1 – When it comes to wearing metal braces, 92% of teens feel that it would keep them from fitting in with their peers.
Truth #2 – Teens wearing Invisalign clear aligners are 2 times more likely to have a boost in their self-esteem while in treatment compared to teens treated with metal braces.
Truth #3 – In qualified, professional hands, the patented treatment of Invisalign, can be just as effective as metal braces for eligible patients.
Invisalign is not the answer for everyone. Scenic Drive Dental recommends this corrective procedure for our patients with mild to moderate orthodontic issues.
Invisalign is typically comparable in cost to traditional braces. If you have orthodontic coverage as part of your dental insurance plan, Invisalign is covered at the same rate as traditional braces.
Our friendly staff works with our patients on a mutually agreeable payment schedule for such a procedure. Another option is a CareCredit health care credit card can be used for payment of Invisalign. For more information or to make a consultation appointment please contact 636-479-5324.
