How Does Invisalign Work?
Completely metal-free and constructed with transparent plastic, Invisalign aligners offer orthodontic patients straighten teeth in a modern way. When you choose Invisalign, we use 3-D technology and X-rays of your teeth to create your own series of customized aligners. You’ll wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day and replace them every two weeks. Over time, the aligners gradually move your teeth into the proper position. Invisalign can treat a wide variety of bite’s, spacing, crowding, and much more.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?
No two people are exactly alike, and neither are their Invisalign aligners. Your specific Invisalign cost will depend on how long you’ll need to wear aligners, your insurance plan’s orthodontic coverage, and how many times you’ll need to follow up with the dentist. The complexity of your orthodontic problems will also affect the final Invisalign cost. To learn more about the cost of Invisalign and your financing choices, contact our office. We now offer FREE in office or virtual consultations.
How Long Does Invisalign Take?
Many Invisalign patients see results in as little as one year. You may require more time in treatment if your orthodontic problems are severe. On average, most people complete Invisalign treatment anywhere between 10 months for milder cases, and two years for more complex cases. When you come in, you will be given a treatment plan that outlines how long you’ll need to wear aligners.
Advantages of Invisalign
In addition to a straighter, more vibrant smile, Invisalign offers a host of advantages.
These perks include:
- Eat and drink the things you enjoy – no dietary restrictions
- No painful cuts or sores from metal wires and brackets
- Practicing good oral hygiene is easy – simply remove aligners to brush and floss
- Visit the dentist less often – you’ll come in every four to six weeks
Does Insurance Cover Invisalign?
When considering Invisalign, be sure to check with your insurance provider to see if it offers coverage for clear aligners or when you come to us we can contact your insurance provider for you. Many plans provide orthodontic care, which often includes Invisalign.
No Insurance Coverage?
For those without Invisalign insurance coverage, our practice offers a variety of financing options. These convenient plans allow you to split the cost of treatment among several monthly payments.
Caring for Teeth after Invisalign Treatment
Following treatment, you’ll continue to brush, floss, and use mouthwash just as you did when wearing the aligners. We recommend wearing Invisalign retainers at night to keep the teeth in the correct position long term.
