Common Questions About Invisalign

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign is an alternative to braces that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten the teeth. The aligners are custom-shaped to your mouth and created in a sequence, with each pair of aligners pushing your teeth a little closer to their finished alignment. You wear the aligners for 22 hours per day, switching to a new pair every 2 weeks.

Why should I choose Invisalign?

Any orthodontic treatment can help you achieve a new smile, but Invisalign comes with some unique advantages and benefits. Invisalign aligners are nearly impossible to see when worn, which means they won't show up in photos or at social events. Invisalign aligners are also removable, which means you can eat, drink, brush, and floss your teeth just like normal: you won't need to avoid certain foods or use devices like floss threaders. All in all, Invisalign offers a more discreet, convenient alternative towards a new smile.

What can Invisalign treat?

Invisalign technology has advanced dramatically since its inception, and while it's not right for everyone, Invisalign can now treat a wide variety of orthodontic malocclusions. Most patients are eligible for Invisalign, and our orthodontist will talk with you to help you understand all of your options.

How long does treatment take?

Treatment time depends on the complexity of your orthodontic case, but most patients wear the aligners for 18-24 months.

Is Invisalign more expensive than braces?

The costs of orthodontic treatment vary greatly depending on the specifics of your condition, so it's impossible to say the cost for sure without a consultation. However, Invisalign is usually comparable in price to braces, although in some cases it can be a slightly higher fee.
