Invisalign FAQ

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a series of clear and removable, aligners to gradually adjust your smile. Invisalign aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology so you can see projected results before you start treatment. The aligners are custom made for your teeth that you change every 2 weeks to progress towards your smile goals.

Why should I consider Invisalign?

Invisalign may be an option for your orthodontic treatment. You may consider Invisalign if you are looking for a treatment that does not use traditional metal braces. You may also want to get Invisalign if you are in school, are a working professional, are getting married, or are just looking for a discreet way to straighten your teeth.

How does it work?

You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts nine to 15 months, and the number of aligners is between 18 and 30, but both numbers will vary from case to case.

How much does Invisalign cost?

There are many factors that determine the cost of your Invisalign treatment: the extent of the issues you want corrected, how long your treatment plan will last, and the specific treatment details prescribed by the orthodontist.

How long does Invisalign take?

Depending on your treatment plan, and your smile goals, the length of Invisalign treatment will vary between individuals. Book a complimentary consultation to see if Invisalign is right for you.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are clear; no one should even notice you’re wearing braces, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others. Invisalign is removable.

Unlike braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment simply by removing the aligners when you eat. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign does not use metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth.

In addition, you’ll spend less time in the doctor’s chair and scheduling appointments, and more time out doing the things you love. Lastly, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment, so you can preview how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.
