What is Invisalign? Why would I prefer to have invisalign instead of braces?

Invisalign treatment includes a sequence of virtually invisible aligners that allow you having your normal lifestyle while you are having your teeth moved to the perfect position. You are able to remove them to have your meal and snacks without struggling with bulky brackets on your teeth. Brushing and flossing will be easy with no hassle. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven as effective as brackets if cases are selected correctly.

How does Invisalign work?

You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. We recommend that you remove them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you switch to the next set of aligners every two weeks, your teeth will move until they have straightened to their final positions. You'll visit us about once every four to six weeks to ensure you are on track with the treatment plan.  The average treatment duration is 9 to 16 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30.

Could Teenagers get invisalign?

Absolutely. Your teen’s smile journey begins with a scan or impressions. He/She will receive Invisalign clear aligners created with the Invisalign system’s proprietary SmartTrack material. The indicator on the aligner allows the parents to monitor their son’s or daughter’s compliance during the course of treatment. Your teen needs to wear the aligners for about 22 hours per day, but can easily remove them so there will be fewer lifestyle interruptions. Call us for a complimentary consultation.

 

How much does Invisalign treatment cost?

There are factors that determine the cost of your Invisalign treatment: the complexity of the issues you want to be corrected, how many trays you will need and how long your treatment plan will last, and the specific treatment details prescribed by the doctor.

We try to make Invisalign treatment affordable to everyone. 

Remember, it is not just about a beautiful smile; having aligned teeth will help with the health of the teeth, gum, and bone around the teeth and ultimately the health of the entire mouth.

What are the payment options?

  • Courtesy discount applied for payment in full by cash or check

Is invisalign a covered benefit?

Insurances vary in terms of coverage of invisalign. If your dental plan covers orthodontic treatment, you may also qualify for Invisalign treatment. Talk to your insurance provider to determine the extent of coverage for your treatment.
