Will Invisalign Work for Me?


Dr. Bob Kumra and the professional team at Kumra Orthodontics have developed a list of thoughtful questions that help their patients living in or working near Roseville VA decide if orthodontic treatment with Invisalign is appropriate for them.

1. Am I responsible? To be treated effectively with Invisalign in Stafford County VA, you need to accept the responsibility of caring for the trays. Not only do the Invisalign trays need to be kept clean, but you need to keep track of them while they are not being worn. Because this product is removable and clear, they can easily be misplaced or accidentally thrown out. It is important to remember also to put them back in your mouth after eating or brushing. A new set of tray aligners is exchanged for the old set in approximately two-week intervals as part of the course of treatment.

2. How much work do I need done? Typically, the aligners are recommended by orthodontists to patients who do not need extensive or complex orthodontic treatment. Dr. Kumra prescribes Invisalign for fixing such conditions as over- or under-bites, overcrowding, gapped teeth, or those with general spacing issues. Raising and lowering teeth or large tooth spacings are typically more effectively treated with traditional braces.

3. Will Invisalign fit into my lifestyle? The clear plastic trays is virtually invisible to the casual observer, so patients can continue to smile big while being treated with this product. Because the aligners are clear and removable, you can continue to eat the foods you love, unlike the limitations on eating certain foods often associated with treatment with traditional braces. Invisalign does need to be removed for eating, brushing, flossing, and to clean the trays.

4. What will Invisalign cost in time and money? The course of treatment with this product is often shorter than treatment with traditional braces. The clear aligner treatment treatment typically lasts approximately a year and a half, depending on the patient. Appointments with Dr. Bob Kumra while being treated with Invisalign may be more frequent than with traditional braces, but check-ups are short. Traditional braces typically cost between $1,200 and $3,000 in Roseville VA Treatment with the Invisalign costs approximately $3,000 to $5,000. Kumra Orthodontics can help their patients manage by offering to spread the costs of their treatment over time.
