Invisalign is an amazing new technology that has many benefits. However, there are some things you need to know in order to make an informed decision. Here are some answer to some more commonly asked questions:
1.) What cases are treatable with Invisalign?
Invisalign can treat mild to moderate and often even more serious gapped teeth, overbites, underbites, open bites, overly crowded teeth and even cross bites.
2.) How long do I wear my aligners each day?
Invisalign recommends that aligners are worn 20 to 22 hours a day in order to achieve the best results. However, because the aligners are so comfortable this often has less impact on your lifestyle than traditional braces.
3.) How long does the treatment take?
The treatment can vary depending on the severity of your case. The average adult treatment is 12 months.
4.) Do they work as well as braces?
Naturally this depends more on your commitment to wearing your aligners than to the technology itself. As long as you remain diligent about wearing your aligners the treatment will be effective.
5.) Is it more or less expensive than braces?
Invisalign is typically very comparable to traditional braces. Our practice also offers various methods of payment and most insurances will cover a portion of treatment.
