Invisalign can be your path to clearly beautiful pearly whites


Getting your teeth straightened isn’t just for teenagers anymore. Like many adults, you have probably wanted to straighten your teeth. Our teeth tend to get slightly crooked over time, especially if we wore braces as kids but stopped wearing our retainer at some point. Straightening your teeth as an adult may seem to be an impossible dream, and you’ve got a long list of reasons why you can’t do it. “I don’t want metal braces at my age,” or “It’ll be too much trouble,” or “It’ll take too long,” and—everyone’s old favorite—“It’ll be too expensive.”

Rockaway Family Orthodontics addresses your concerns here:

  1. “I don’t want metal braces at my age.” With Invisalign, you don’t wear metal braces. Instead, your teeth are straightened by wearing a series of virtually invisible plastic aligners. Almost no one can tell you’ve got the aligners on (unless you tell them).
  2. “It’ll be too much trouble.” Treatment with Invisalign is easy. You’ll receive a series of clear aligners, which you’ll wear for about two weeks at a time. You wear them all the time, except when you’re eating, drinking anything but water, brushing, and flossing.
  3. “It’ll take too long.” We can’t tell you exactly how long treatment will take. But Invisalign treatment takes, on average, about one year.
  4. “It’ll be too expensive.” Invisalign treatment is often similar in cost to traditional braces. In addition, if you have orthodontic coverage, Invisalign is often covered to the same extent as traditional braces. We also offer a variety of affordable payment plans. Our office will be happy to work with you on all of the insurance and financial details.
