Invisalign invisably straightens your teeth with a series of custom-molded
Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without
braces, using a series of clear 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 position your orthodontist or dentist has
prescribed. You'll visit your orthodontist or dentist about once ever six weeks
to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners
worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to
How does Invisalign work?
An Invisalign-trained dentist will utilize 3D computer imaging technology to
demonstrate the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final
desired position. The imaging technology is then used to design an
individualized series of custom-made aligners. The patient wears the aligner
for about two weeks while the teeth move incrementally. After two weeks, the
current aligner is replaced with the next one until the final position is
What do aligners look like?
Aligners are clear and nearly invisible. If you've ever seen clear
tooth-whitening trays, that should give you a good idea of what the aligners
look like. Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit and move your teeth.
Will the treatment be painful?
Each time you change to a new aligner, there may be some temporary
discomfort while your teeth adjust to their new position. This is completely
normal, and is a good sign that the treatment is working.
Will wearing the Invisalign aligners affect my speech?
Some people are affected more than others, but most adjust in a short period
of time to the feeling of the aligners and do not have permanent changes in
How often will I have to wear my aligners?
Invisalign only works while you're wearing the aligners. It's recommended
that you wear your aligners full-time, day and night, except to eat, brush and
floss your teeth.
How much does Invisalign cost?
Cost is always a concern, and only your doctor can determine the price of
treatment. It is typically in the same range as ordinary metal braces, ranging
from $3,000 to $5,000 or more, depending on the requirements of your case.
Does Invisalign really work?
Yes. In orthodontic and dental practices nationwide, Invisalign has been
proven effective at straightening teeth.
Is Invisalign for me?
Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for
adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive
adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help. It's successful in treating overly
crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues,
including overbites, underbites and even crossbites. In fact, an Invisalign
certified Orthodontist or Dentist can use Invisalign clear aligners in all or
part of just about every treatment plan.
Does Insurance cover Invisalign?
Any insurance plan that covers orthodontics, should include Invisalign.
Here are a few benefits provided by Invisalign:
- Unobtrusive in business meetings or social gatherings
- No metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth
- Most people won't notice you're wearing aligners
