Questions about Invisalign

Frequently Asked Questions about Invisalign Answered…!!!

Once you’ve decided to undergo Invisalign treatment, some common questions may be ringing in your head. Here are the answers for frequently asked questions about Invisalign.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign uses a series of custom made trays called aligners that you wear over your teeth. Your orthodontist or dentist will take photographs, x-rays, and impressions of your teeth. Based on the specifications, aligners will be created for your teeth. Wearing the aligners straightens your teeth just like braces. Every two weeks you will replace the aligner tray until you’ve achieved that perfect smile.

What are aligners made of & what do they look like?

The virtually invisible aligners are made of strong medical grade thermoplastic material, uniquely developed for the Invisalign treatment plan. The aligners are custom-made for you and fit snugly over your teeth.

What dental problems can Invisalign correct?

Invisalign providers treat wide ranging dental problems, namely gapped teeth, overbites, under bites, cross-bites and overcrowding.

Is it painful?

Because Invisalign uses aligners that have been designed specifically for your mouth, you will not experience the level of discomfort that traditional braces are known for. It moves your teeth into position gradually so you may feel a little soreness after starting a new tray, but there is typically only minor pain.

How much does it cost?

The cost for Invisalign may vary depending on your specific needs and the duration of treatment. They are about the same as conventional braces and depending on your insurance plan, you may be allotted some coverage for Invisalign treatment.

If you have any further questions, don’t forget to ask your orthodontist.
